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.
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.
I am flying into t1 gates d from detroit at 520pm and my brother is flying into las terminal 3 at 620pm. Can i meet him over in terminal 3 without having to go through customs. 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.
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?
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.
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.
