  • Transfer time to Lihue, Kauai
    Jun 10, 2016
    I'm travelling from Chicago to SFO on United airlines. Flight arrives at 3:56 p.m. but I need to catch my next flight to Lihue Kauai at 5:05 p.m. Is this enough time? Also, do I collect my luggage in SFO for another security check?


    All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.


  • Enough transit time
    May 23, 2016
    I will be flying back from Phoenix - SFO- SIN by UA business class. I will arrive into SFO at 925pm at T3 and next flight to sin is at 1055pm at T1. Is 1.5hr transit time sufficient? Do I need to clear security or immigration at SFO ? I am on UA flight all the way to sin. Thank you !


    Your flight to Singapore does not leave from T1, it leaves from the International Terminal. There is no US Immigration when departing the US. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.


  • Security Wait Time
    May 19, 2016
    If I am flying standby and going to EWR on Saturday. I can go either at 7:25 am or at 3:00 pm OR Sunday 7:25 am on United. Do you think the lines at Security are longer in the afternoons than in early morning on weekends generally?


    the Saturday 3 PM flight will be by far the easiest.


  • Baggage Claim
    Apr 26, 2016
    I will fly back from Seoul by Asiana flight to SFO and connect Air Canada flight to Toronto. I know I have to clear the security from the US custom, but do I have to claim my baggage in SFO?


    Yes, you will have to claim your bags to go through US customs, then re-check them at the re-check desk.


  • Baggage checkin/TSA wait times

    Heading out of SFO on red eye 11:30pm Saturday. Recommended arrival time to be dropped off at airport? is there curbside bag checkin? flying JetBlue


    I recommend arriving to the airport at about 10 PM, maybe a little before. I don't believe JetBlue has curbside checkin.


  • Layover
    Apr 1, 2016
    We are travelling from Toronto and will have cleared US customs, our layover In SanFrancisco is 8 hrs and then on to New Zealand. My brother who lives in the area has offered to take us sight seeing and then dinner. Would we have to collect our checked baggage and re-enter the airport and check-in again, or can we assume that we just pass through security with our boarding passes.


    What airlines are you flying? Are both tickets on the same reservation or do you have two separate reservations?


    All our flights are on the same booking, the flight to SanFrancisco is Air Canada and the connecting flight to New Zealand is Air New Zealand.


    You won't have to do anything with your baggage and you will be issued both boarding passes by Air Canada.


  • Day after Super Bowl 8:45 flight
    Feb 7, 2016
    Does Sfo expect delays tomorrow due to volume of people departing.


    Outbound morning flights are rarely delayed, however, be sure to arrive at the airport extra early because the security lines will be long.

    Probably about an hour.


    Thanks for the fast response! Good Day!!!


  • arriving from vegas terminal
    Nov 15, 2015
    Please could anyone tell me how long it takes from departing aircraft SFO from terminal 3 flight from vegas to taxi, as I have booked an appointment.


    What are you talking about? Are you trying to estimate how long it will take you to get into a taxi after your scheduled arrival time? If you don't have any checked bags it should be about 10 minutes, assuming your flight arrives on-time.
