Hello, I'm traveling on Nov and arriving from Narita Japan, my layover in PDX is only 54 mins and connecting to Detroit. I will have carry on and checked bags. I'm flying Delta airlines. Would that be enough time to go through customs and catch my next flight? Thanks!
It might be possible, Immigration and Customs in Portland in November is very unlikely to be very crowded and it's likely there will be only maybe 100 people on your flight.
Coming from LAX on Alaska Airlines then on Icelandia to Reykjavik. Do I have to go through TSA again? Use a wheelchair. How difficult is it to get to the correct concourse for Iceland flight?
If it's one reservation then all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
I am typing in-flight from IAD to PDX (United flight # 326) scheduled to land 11:07pm PST local time. I am on Alaskan flight # 2019 that is scheduled to depart 11:10pm PST tonight Thursday 3 August.

Would please ask the crew at Alaskan Airlines flight #2303 from PDX to RDM to wait 5-minutes for me to catch this flight?

Please help me! We had over 8-hours of flight delays today because of the weather - I need to make this flight from PDX to Redmond tonight.

Please let me know if this is possible or please get me in contact with somebody who can help me communicate this message to the AA2303 crew (email, not phone because I'm in-flight).

Thank you!!

Correction: Please ask Alaskan Air #2303 PDX-RDM to wait 5-minutes for my delayed arrival. I need to make this flight to Redmond!!
I am flying Alaskan Airlines SMF-PDX arriving at 11:45am and connecting flight also Alaskan is departing at 12:15. Will a 30 minute layover be enough time to make connecting flight. No carry-on checked bags.
Yes, that's enough time if the first flight is on-time, but it leaves no time to spare.

I'm looking at the following flights, with 2 checked-in bags:
1802 Vancouver - Portland 1910
1955 Portland - Spokane 2100

Is 45m enough to make this connection? Will I have to go through passport control?

I would appreciate anyone who can make a swift response!

Many thanks,

You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Vancouver. All you have to do in Portland is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.
I have a flight coming in from gate c18 and then a connecting flight going out of gate d4. How long of a walk is it from gate to gate?
That should take less than 10 minutes.
I have a flight on Alaska that gets in from Redmond Or at 2:08 and a flight out with Southwest the same day at 2:50 . Is that cutting it too close?
With no checked bags it's possible but risky. With checked bags it's impossible.
I have 1/2 hour between connections on Horizon and United! Will this give me enough time to catch my connecting flight? Thank You
With no checked bags that is barely enough time if everything goes perfectly and the Horizon flight is on-time and you are checked in online for your United flight.
We are flying from Pasco WA to Portland arriving at 8:00 AM with a connecting flight at 8:30 AM to LAX. Can we make the connection in time? Airline changed are original flight and there is nothing I can do. Both are on Alaska.
Yes, that is possible if the flight from Pasco is on-time.
I have a flight from Amsterdam to PDX, and then a flight from PDX to LAX. Is 1 hour and 25 min enough time to make my connecting flight or will I need more time and have to go through customs?
Yes, that should be enough time. Portland is a fairly uncongested airport.
