    Is it possible to get from terminal 1 to terminal 3 without having to reclear security.


    Theoretically yes, but it's not well marked and I haven't done it. You basically have to walk back towards the security checkpoint and then follow signs to the D-gates, take the train to D, then follow signs to the United baggage claim which will take you to the E-gates/Terminal 3.


  • Allegiant connecting with Southwest

    Flying in on Allegiant with carry on luggage landing at 3:30. Switching airlines to Southwest. Is two hours enough time between flights? Do I have to go thru security again? Or do I just go directly to Southwest gate? Both are terminal one. Thanks for the help.

    what is the easy way to get to D gates with no checked bags, I hate terminal 1, can I go to T3 and then take the train?


    As long as you already printed out your boarding pass or you have it on your phone, yes, you can.

    How far is Gate A15 from the baggage claim area.


    It's not that far.


  • Meeting up with family past security
    Jul 15, 2016
    My daughter flies into C9 at LAS. She is a little nervous on where she will walk to in order to meet them. I told her to walk toward "baggage" and once she passes security, they will be standing there. I am unfamiliar with the LAS airport. Can anyone familiar with LAS help me to reassure her? Thank you.


    Yes, this is pretty hard to screw up. LAS Terminal 1 has one large baggage hall.

    I'm flying to LAS on United on the 8th of June, and I'm meeting up with family flying in from Toronto on Air Canada. We're staying at the same hotel (my uncle made these bookings). So where should I meet my uncle after I land, and is there a way I can carry a suitcase, a duffel bag, and a 20" guitar without making a mess of myself?


  • Check-In Counter of American Airlines and Going to D Gates
    Apr 17, 2016
    I am flying with American Airlines from Las Vegas to Chicago. Where are the check in counters of American Airlines located? and how do I go to D Gates of Terminal 1.


    They are located in the main area of Terminal 1. There is a very easy to find train that leads from the security checkpoint in Terminal 1 to the D gates.


  • T1 to T3

    Am flying in on United concourse D meeting someone coming in on Southwest - do these airlines share the same baggage area? Best place or way to meet?


    No, the Southwest baggage claim is in Terminal 1 and the United baggage claim is in Terminal 3. If you are intent in meeting at the airport I suggest whoever arrives first rides the shuttle bus between terminals to the later-arrivals' terminal baggage claim.

We both havn or e carryons only. We would like to take same shuttle service to our hotel. Or Would it be easier for him to go to terminal 1.


    Yes after you arrive follow the signs to the train to the United baggage claim. That will take you to Terminal 3 where you can meet your brother.


  • Curbside check-in
    Jan 12, 2016
    Question: Am elderly and will be dropped off at curb with 1 large bag, 1 med. bag, 1 carry-on plus purse. How can I navigate alone with all this luggage if there is a long line. In the past, it has been a nightmare trying to drag luggage along. Any suggestions?
