I'm flying in with JetBlue to Terminal 3, but my friend is at Terminal 1 with Air Canada, can I meet him at his gate without going through security? Can I get through security with my existing boarding pass?
Getting from Terminal 3 to Terminal 1 inside security is difficult and requires going through the D gates. You cannot get through security without a boarding pass DEPARTING Las Vegas that day.
So it's difficult, but not impossible?
It's theoretically possible, but I have no confirmation of actually reading about anybody who went from T3 to T1 inside security through the D-gate trains. If you successfully do it, please let me know.
I am flying into C in Las Vegas at night with one hour until a connecting flight on a different airlines in Terminal D....how do I go from C to D quickly without going back through security?! Thanks!
Follow signs to the D gates. There is a train from T1 to D for Delta and American passengers.
I have a flight with Delta arriving at 6.35PM and a connecting flight with Southwest departing at 8PM. I have only carry on luggage, will I be able to make it?
I supposed it's possible, check in online for your Southwest flight and follow the signs to the Delta baggage claim and get on the train to Terminal 1 but then don't exit security, instead follow the signs to the B and C gates.
San Diego to Vegas. Southwest. Arrives Vegas at 10:05 pm at Terminal 1. Connection Vegas to Milwaukee. Frontier. Departs Vegas at 11:25 pm from Terminal 3. Have TSA precheck. No checked bags. Only carry on. Do I have enough time to make my connection?
If the first flight is on-time, then yes, you should be able to make that. Note however, that you won't get pre-check in Las Vegas because Frontier is still not a pre-check participant.
Frontier website says they do participate in pre check!
Thanks for that info - that's a recent occurrence.
My friend and I are flying in at the same time me in Terminal 3 and her in terminal 1. I don't have any checked lugguage, could I take the tram to terminal 1 to meet her or do I have to take the shuttle?
If you are arriving in concourse D, you could follow the signs to the American baggage claim and that would take you to the same area as she arrives in.
Arriving on BA flight from London at 18:35 and changing to JetBlue flight to San Francisco at 19:59, a British citizen, now bags. Will I have enough time to go through Immigration and then checkin for the JetBlue flight? Thanks in advance
with no bags
That should be just possible. You can check in for your JetBlue flight online before leaving London. In Las Vegas you will have to go through US Immigration, Customs, and Security.
Looking at flights - first one gets in on Alaska Air from Seattle at 9:00 PM, and departs at 11:35 PM to Cincinnati. The flight coming home gets into Vegas via Delta at 5:30, then departs from Alaska Air to Seattle at 7:50 PM. Are both of these long enough to make it if we only bring carry-ons?
Yes, both of those connections would be sufficient.
