  • SouthWest - Connection Time
    Jan 24, 2016
    First time flying with SouthWest and into McCarran. i am due to arrive from Louisville at 18.10 and then go on to LAX 19.15, will I have sufficient time? Thank you in advance for any guidance.


    Yes, that should be plenty of time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • Cph to Las to HnL
    Jan 19, 2016
    I'm coming in on Norwegian Egates from Copenhagen at 5pm and need to connect to Hawaiian D gates for a 6:15pm flight, will I make it, and should I take the train or walk from E Gate to D Gate?


    This connection is completely impossible. In Las Vegas you will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, and go through US Customs, then you will have to go to the departure level of Terminal 3 and re-check your bags with Hawaiian. However, the bag check closes at 5:30. There's pretty much no way you can make this connection.


    Also, it's impossible to walk from the D gates to the E gates, you can only take the train.


  • Flying from SLC to Stockholm via LAS
    Jan 8, 2016
    We arrive in LAS at 2:33 pm on 27th February with Delta (Terminal 1). Our connection flight leaves at 5:25 pm with Norwegian (Terminal 3). Is three hours enough time to retrieve our bags, go to the terminal 3, check in our bags and make it to the gate on time?


    That should be enough time if your Delta flight is on-time and the shuttle bus comes reasonably quickly.


  • T3 to T1 transfer
    Jan 7, 2016
    I'm flying on BA to LHR to LAS arriving in T3 then connecting onto DELTA to SJC T1. Is 1.5 hours enough time to clear security and transfer terminals - hand luggage only. Will I need to get the inter-terminal shuttle?


    If you are able to check in online for your Delta flight you can go through security in Terminal 3 after you clear customs and then take the train to the D concourse, thus avoiding the inter-terminal shuttle. I think you would have enough time to do that. If you have to take the inter-terminal shuttle, no, I don't think you'd have enough time. Even without having to take the shuttle, this is a very tight connection.


  • Flying in from London out to Los Angeles
    Jan 4, 2016
    Hi, I am arriving in to Las Vegas from London at 6pm on British Airways. I then need to take a connecting flight to Los Angeles. Is there enough time to catch a flight with either Sprint or Southwest at 20:15 or do I need more time?


    You would need more time to safely make such a connection unless you aren't checking bags.


  • tram or shuttle
    Dec 26, 2015
    I am arriving at C gates and need to go to D gates with carry-on bags only. Is there a tram between gates inside security, or will I need to take a shuttle and go through security again to get to D gates?


    You should be able to take the tram.


  • Terminal 1 C to Terminal 1 D
    Dec 22, 2015
    Arrive on SWA (C gates) at 0845. Depart on Delta (D gates) at 1010. Doable?


    Without checked bags it should be possible.


  • From 1B or 1C to 3D
    Dec 16, 2015
    I arrive in LAS 9:50 pm on 12/18 with Southwest (seems like either gates B or C in Terminal 1) from SFO. My next flight leaves at 11:25 pm with Air Canada (seems like gates D in Terminal 3) and I have a checked bag. Do I have enough time to retrieve my bag, go to the correct terminal, and check in the bag?


    That should be just enough time if everything goes smoothly. You'll have to take a shuttle from T1 to T3 to re-check your bag with Air Canada.


  • Using Lounge in Gate D but flight in gate E
    Dec 14, 2015
    If my flight departs terminal 3/Gate E but I want to use the Centurion lounge in Gate D can I enter the airport at Gate D or do I need to check-in at E first, then take the shuttle to D? Thanks!


    The D gates don't have a check in area or security checkpoint. They are connected to both Terminal 1 and 3 by trains inside security.


  • From 1-D to 3-E
    Dec 8, 2015
    Please tell me how to quickly get from an American arrival in 1-D-8, to Alaska's departure at 3-E15. Thanks.


    There is an underground train inside security from the D gates to Terminal 3 - follow signs for the United baggage claim once you arrive in D. You can get between the gates in less than 15 minutes.


  • Connection with checked bag
    Dec 4, 2015
    I´m going to arrive in LAS 2:20pm (12th dec) with jetblue from SFO. My next flight leaves at 17:25 with norweigian (terminal 3) and I have a checked bag. Do I have to go out, through security with my bag, to the check-in counters to check in my bag with norwegian and will I have enough time (3h)?


    Yes, you will have to claim your bag from Jet Blue and then bring it to the Norwegian check-in desk on the departure level to re-check it then go through security. You should have enough time.


  • Gates A to D
    Dec 3, 2015
    Can I make it from A gates to D gates in 45 minutes. I am booking a tight connection between allegiant and delta with carryon luggage only


    No, I really don't advise you try that.


  • Time to Transfer between American & South West
    Nov 23, 2015
    Hi - we are travelling on 16th January - arriving from NY into Las Vegas at 10.30am and need to transfer to Southwest flight to Reno departing at 12.40pm. We will have luggage - will we have enough time to make our connection?


    Yes, that should be enough time. Both airlines use Terminal 1. Note that you'll have to claim your bags from American and re-check them with Southwest.


    Thank you!


  • Southwest Connection at las vegas
    Nov 17, 2015
    I have a connection at las vegas, arriving SouthWest at B Gates and connecting southwest flight at C gate. Would I have to go through security? I only have about an hour between the flights.


    All Southwest gates at LAS are connected inside security and walkable. You have enough time as long as your first flight is on-time.


  • different arriving airlines

    I'm hoping to meet up with a friend at the airport before heading to our hotel. I'm arriving on United and she's on American. Would there be anywhere we can meetup after landing?
