how can I get to SWA baggage claim after I arrive on Hawaiian Airlines. Need to meet my family there.
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.
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.

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.
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!
