    I arrive American gate D 10, another arrives Alaska T-3 terminal E - gates E - 14 + 15; where is the best place to meet - no checked baggage. How do we get to the Flamingo on the strip, least expensive way. Thank You

     

    Since neither of you have checked baggage, after you arrive you can take the tram to T3 arrivals. The cheapest way to the strip is the shuttle buses, but they're slow and make a lot of stops along the way, and since you pay for them by the person, you should probably just take a taxi as it will be a lot faster and only marginally more expensive.

    Does anyone know if there were delays at LAS on Sunday, March 16 (yesterday). Was told there were problems at the airport which resulted in missed flights. Did anyone have any or know of any problems? Thank you.

    How much time should I plan for the security lines in Termainal 3

     

    It depends on the time of day - the morning maybe 15-20 minutes, but I went in the afternoon a few weeks ago and there was no line. T3 is much less congested than T1.

     

  • London to Las Vegas, then on to SFO. How long layover?

    Hi Virgin Atlantic land at 2.10pm, then next connecting flight is at 5.05pm - will this be plenty of time to get the bags, clear immigration, recheck bags and get they security again?? I don't want to spend too long in the airport but after a ten hr flight, do not want to miss the connection either. Thanks

     

    Yes, that should be plenty of time. What airline are you flying to Las Vegas?

     

    Sorry, I see that you are connecting in Las Vegas to SFO. What airline are you flying to SFO?

     

    Virgin America to sfo, virgin Atlantic from England.

     

    OK, good, both of them are in the same terminal - you will have plenty of time.

     

    Thanks for replying. I was concerned about the plane being delayed or just taking a long time to retrieve bags and clear security again.

    I have trouble walking but hate the thought of a wheel chair. How far is it to get from Delta gate to ground transportation at McCarran Airport?

     

    It's not too far, you take a train for most of the distance.

    How long does it take to get from one concourse to another within terminal 1? I'm flying in on Southwest on a Tuesday (if that matters). It says that Southwest can come into concourse B or C I was wanting to know how long it takes to get from one area to another. I have about an hour lay over.

     

    At LAS, Terminal 1, a connector is between gates B6 & B9 and gate C25. Just follow signs. You have enough time.

    How do you get to terminal 3 passenger pickup?

     

    1.If picking up a passenger at LAS outside of the terminal, follow the yellow triangles to the Passenger Pick-Up curb, located across the pedestrian bridge from baggage claim. This area is designated for immediate loading only. Short-term metered parking is also available in this area. 2. If you want to pick up your party inside the terminal, follow the red triangles to Short-term Parking on Level 2M of the parking garage or follow the yellow triangles to level 1 for more short-term parking spaces. 3. Note that Terminal 3 is on Russel Road, east of Terminal 1 - on its level 0 you can meet your party at near the baggage claim & information counter.

     

  • flying in on Hawaiian Terminal 3

    When I fly in on Hawaiian Air (Terminal 3) Level 2...what is the easiest way to get to level 0 to get my baggage? I've heard there is a people walker and a tram but I can not locate that on any McCarran maps? Please be as detailed as possible because I have no sense of directions...thanks so much!!!!

     

    On arrival at LAS simply follow signs to the Arrivals level 0 (Terminal 3 has only 2 levels) you will use either one of baggage carousels 1 to 10 - the overhead screens will show the airline flight number.

     

    So there is no tram or people mover...just walk and follow signs to baggage claim one floor down? thank you so much!

  • meeting friend in different terminal

    I'm arriving on United Airlines (Gate D/T3) and my friend is arriving on Spirit (Gate B/T1). It looks like baggage claim areas for each of us are in different /opposite sections of the airport. Is it possible for one of us to get our luggage and take the inter-terminal shuttle to get to the other terminal or do we have to pick up our luggage and go outside to get to the other terminal? Where should we meet? Thanks.

     

    At LAS you will arrive at the new International Terminal; therefore, (unless you have gone through US customs clearance by participating airports in Canada, Ireland or the Caribbean), you need to go through passport check, retrieve checked bags, and go through customs clearance on the Arrivals level. Terminals 1 & 3 are connected by an outside shuttle bus. You may want to choose a meeting spot near the information counter at the Arrivals Hall of your Terminal 3.

    I left a public library book called 'the seekers' that has been found by the lost and found dept. Would anyone flying back to the 'peg be able to pick up? Apparently to ship is an outrageous price. Just need to someone to go to lost and found and pick up! TKS!!!!!!!!!

    We will be arriving at McCarran airport 9.15pm on Saturday evening, is there an outlet at the airport for last minute accommodation for one night in Vegas or should we book something beforehand.

     

    It's always a good idea to book ahead - google 'Las Vegas hotels' and see what's offered. Most of the hotels courtesy phones in the arrivals area of the airport, as well as their own shuttle service.

    Is there someplace at or nearby to store luggage for approximately 66 hours? I have a personal side trip and do not want to carry my work bag?

     

    LAS has lockers in the secured areas of Terminal 1, at the D gates satellite and T3's E gates, as well as in the baggage claim area of T3. However, for details you would have to call LAS at (702) 261 5211.

    Is there a USo at McCarran Airport? If so, what's the phone number?

     

    LAS has a 'USO Las Vegas' lounge in Terminal 1, at its esplanade. There is no telephone listing, but the general LAS telephone number is 702-261-5211 (please draw this to LAS attention to add USO telephone number on their website - we at iFly deem this very important to furnish this information to military passengers - if you get the number, I would greatly appreaciate it if you could share it with us. Thank you and good luck!).
