  • meeting other parties arriving at different terminals

    Flying into LAS on Delta, want to meet our son arriving on United, and then meet our parents arriving on Southwest. Is it possible to meet them without leaving terminal security?

     

    Yes, if none of you have checked baggage. You need to go to your son's gate in the D gates (you will also arrive in the D gates) - then take the train to Terminal 1 (follow signs for Delta baggage claim) and then meet your parents in the Delta or Southwest baggage claim.

     

    If your son has checked bags, it won't be possible since he will have to claim his bags in Terminal 3.

    Hi! My flight on Southwest will be arriving 3 hours or so before husbands on American....I'll have checked luggage (car seat, suitcase) & he won't. Is there a place in the baggage area for storing the luggage while I wait with our 16 month the old daughter? Thanks!

    I'm arriving at T3 D gates and my friend is arriving at T3 E gates. How and where would we meet to grab a taxi to the strip?

     

    If you are arriving on a D-gate airline that uses Terminal 3, you will use the same baggage claim as passengers who arrive in the E gates. Just meet in the baggage claim.

    You will have to take the inter-terminal shuttle bus.

    Hi, we are picking up my mother tomorrow, arriving in 4:35pm at T3, we never been to T3. She is Korean, so expecting a waiting time for her at passport control. Where should we park to pick her up and how much that cost? And how long later after her arrival time will be the best for us to minimize our waiting time at the carrousel to pick my mom up? And any Wifi Zone after her arrival at T3? Thank you so much!

     

    She will actually claim her baggage before going through customs, so you won't be waiting for her at the carousel, you will meet her at the exit of customs. I would expect that she would come out of customs sometime between 5 and 5:15 if her flight is on-time. I'm sure there is a short term parking lot.

    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.
