    Going from Montreal to Vegas to Sacramento Arrive in Vegas at 11a and Sacramento flight leaves at 1:25p is that enough time?


    What airlines are you flying? Do you have checked bags? I can't answer your question without that information. Sorry it took so long to respond.


  • Arrive in Vegas via Hawn Air...depart Vegas via United Air

    If I arrive in Vegas via Hawn Air @ 7:15am and depart via United Air @ 9:39am - would it be safe to check in my baggage flying to Vegas?


    do you mean Hawaiian Airlines? No, I do not recommend checking bags.

    I am arriving LAS 9am in Terminal 1 and Bought a Separate ticket on Jet Blue leaving at 10am in Terminal 3, Would I have enough time to make the 10am Jet Blue flight? Do I have to go thru security again?


    No, that's not enough time. You really shouldn't' have bought that.


    My guess is no that is not enough time. If you have baggage you would need to pick up your luggage then get to terminal 3 by a tram-check in if you have to-and then get thru security. But if you only have a carry on and are checked in all you need to do is catch the tram to Concourse E you may just make it. But that is assuming that your flight isn't late to LAS. I would have like another 30 min (carryon only)-1 hour (checked luggage) leeway.

    Ian flying into LAS from IAH on United and arriving at 11:20 pm. I then depart on Hawaiian airlines at 1:55 am to HNL. These flights were booked separately, so would I have rough time to mess with checked baggage between flights?


    Considering they're both in Terminal 3 you could if you had to, but not having to would sure be a lot easier.


  • Checked bags
    Apr 29, 2016
    I am flying into LAS at 11:20 pm on United and then I am flying out to HNL on Hawaiian at 1:55 am. Will I have enough time to go get my checked bags from United baggage claim and then check my bags at Hawaiian and still get back to the gates for my flight out?


  • Transfer from E gates to D gates
    Apr 24, 2016
    How easy is to make the transfer, I'm trying to reach the centurion lounge at concourse D but my JetBlue flight departures from E gates


    It's very easy to reach the D gates from the E gates. However, the route back to E is a bit more difficult as by default that train routes you to the Terminal 3 baggage claim. I don't recall if you can access the E gates from the Train from D to T3.


  • Question
    Apr 8, 2016
    Arriving on southwest flight and changing planes to another southwest flight. Will the departure flight be in the same terminal and nearby?


    Yes, all Southwest gates are in the same terminal and are connected to each other.


  • B gate to D gates Terminal 1
    Mar 15, 2016
    Can you go from B gate to D gate without having to go through security again?


    I believe it is possible, but I've never done it and the route will not be well marked.


  • SFO to LAS to MOT
    Mar 10, 2016
    Hi, I already booked a ticket SFO to LAS and LAS to MOT. I will arrive at LAS 1:05pm and departure time at 2:10pm. SFO to LAS is by Virgin America which is T3 and then LAS to MOT is by Allegiant which T1. I kind of worried to not make it.. So, do you think it is possible? or should I buy a ticket? I am not going to check my baggage.


    I wouldn't risk it. If you want to try this connection I would look for an earlier flight from SFO, which should exist. One on Southwest would even put you in the same terminal as Allegiant.


  • allegient to american
    Mar 10, 2016
    I will be flying in on the thursday flight from BZN to LAS on allegient and then have a connection to the American Airlines flight that leaves at 1059 . I know that allegient leaves from A gates and American leaves From D gates. I was wondering if this would be possible to make.


    You didn't post when you are arriving in LAS - so I don't know if you have enough time. Also will you have checked bags or not?


    10:10 is when I arrive and no I am not checking a bad


    It's possible, barely if you are already checked in for your American flight and hurry to the train to your departure gate in D.


  • int to dom connection 12:45pm-2:10pm without bags?
    Feb 29, 2016
    Hi! Traveling without checked bags. If I'm arriving on international flight for Copenhagen with Norwegian at 12:45pm, would I be able to catch a 2:10pm Westjet flight to Edmonton Canada?


    *from Copenhagen


    Without checked bags I think you could make it if you check in for your Westjet flight before leaving Copenhagen. If you wait until you get to LAS to check-in it might be cutting it a little close.


    Thank you for the reply!!. With those flights would I just stay in the international area in same terminal and not have to go through security until landing in Canada?


    No, you will arrive in Terminal 3, go through US Immigration and customs, then go out, get your Westjet boarding pass if you don't already have it, and go through security. You have to go through US Immigration, Customs, and Security any time you transit the US, even if you are connecting to another country. Now, if you return to Copenhagen via the same route, you will pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Edmonton.


  • Enough time for connecting flights
    Feb 21, 2016
    I am coming in at 6:45pm via Allegiant and need to get checked bag and then get to Frontier for a &:40 depart. Is this possible?


    7:40pm departure


    No, I see no way that that would be possible.


  • Planning a flight to BOI through LAS and SLC
    Feb 12, 2016
    Would 2 hours 48 minutes be enough time to transfer from international to domestic? Planning a flight to Boise that stops in Las Vagas and Salt Lake City, around December time but will need to book earlier. Also will eligible for Automated Passport Control. Thanks for any answers.


    It's probably enough time, but what airlines are you flying? Where is your international flight coming from?


    London to Las Vagas - Virgin Atlantic Vegas to SLC & SLC to Boise - Delta All three flights would be booked on the same reservation/ticket


    Yes, that should be enough time. You will arrive in Terminal 3, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, re-check your bags at the re-check desk (I haven't 100% been able to confirm that Las Vegas has an international arrivals re-check desk after customs, since they have very few international connections - if they do not you will have to take your bags with you on a shuttle bus to re-check them with Delta in Terminal 1), then go through security and take the train to your departure gate in concourse D.


  • Delta LAS to Frontier
    Feb 10, 2016
    Arriving on Delta in LAS connecting to Frontier. Both use D gates. From gate 42 to gate 17 how long is the walk?


    Maybe 5-10 minutes.


  • Southwest to Norwegian
    Jan 27, 2016
    Looking at booking WN BUR-LAS arriving 3:25PM into LAS, and departing on Norwegian @ 5:25PM to Stockholm, ARN. WN will arrive into T1 B or C-gates, and Norwegian goes out of T3. I will not have any bags, however DY does not allow online check in. Regular check in closes @ 4:25PM. Is 1 hour enough to get from T1 to T3? What is the fastest way, shuttle or can I take the trains to D-gates and then E-gates from where I will exit and go to the check-in counter?


    Yes, without checked bags you could take the train to the D gates and then the E gates and then exit. That's what I'd try to do. It's still not without risks.


    Is the tram to D-gates clearly signed in the B/C-gate areas? If arriving in the low C-gates I guess it will be faster to take the tram which on the map looks to be right next to the tram going to D-gates. Also, over at D-gates are the trams connecting T1 and T3 close to each other?


    It's not very clearly marked because it's not a connection many people have to make. In D, the T1 and T3 trains aren't too far from each other - you'll want to follow signs that are pointing to the United/Frontier/Hawaiian baggage claim (they use the D gates and Terminal 3 for check in/baggage claim).
