Flying United/Hawaiian, EWR-SFO-OGG, landing at Terminal A, then connection of 1 hr 20min, and have to get to Intl Terminal. Flights are all domestic, but is there extra security to get into Intl Terminal? Is 1hr 20 ok? Luggage should be checked through since UA and HA have the same ticket numbers, but a biz upgrade request looks like it split the PNRs. Anything to be concerned about?

I'll fly to SFO to terminal 3 and my next flight to Chengdu China will be in the international terminal. I'll have 1.5 hour layover. Do I need to pass the security check when enter the international terminal? Is 1.5 hour layover long enough?

Thank you!
About my question above, more details: I'll fly from Seattle, and both flights are on the same reservation, if that matters. Is there a way to walk from terminal 3 to international terminal? I hope I don't need to pass security check.

I have flight from montreal to SFO with layover only 1.5hr to sydney. Do i need to go through baggage claim and custom and recheck my baggage?
You pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Montreal. If both flights are on the same reservation all you have to do in San Francisco is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Hi, I'll be arriving in SFO at 1710 on British Airways from London. Am planning to book a flight on a different reservation to Las Vegas and am contemplating between 3 options:
1945 Virgin
2010 United
2035 Southwest

Will I have enough time to make the Virgin flight or should I go with the later options?

Any of those should work.

Looking at an intinerary where I'll be arriving from Copenhagen with Scandinavian and have 1.50 for transferring to a domestic United flight. The same booking and should be checked through. Is that too tight. MCT is 1.45.

You will have to claim your bags to take them through US Customs in San Francisco then immediately re-check them. You have just enough time if everything goes perfectly.
UAL changed my reservation. I now have 30 minutes between a flight arriving at gate 78 and departing from gate 62. Does anyone know the approximate walking distance? Bilateral knee replacements don't allow for race walking!
That's about a 10-15 minute walk. However, as far as I know, United doesn't use gates in Terminal 6.
Sorry, disregard what I said about "Terminal 6". It's more like a 5-10 minute walk too.
We are flying UA Express SMF to SFO, then UA to Frankfurt, before connecting to Lufthansa to Basel Switzerland. Will UA at SMF check our bags thru to Basel? Will we have to check in again at SFO to show passports when we go to Int. Terminal?
Your bags will be checked through to Basel in Sacramento. All you have to do in SFO is walk to your departure gate - you will show your passports when you board. You will go through Schengen entry passport control in Frankfurt.
Am flying from Denver to sfo on United then flying to panama on Copa airline with 3.5 hour layover. Do I collect bags from United then walk to International and recheck? I have a bike bag.
If both flights are on the same reservation you just have to walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
I'm flying in to SFO 7.10 am from Sydney with a connection to Austin at 8.40 am with United Airlines. Regular economy ticket with baggage. This transfer was the only available option when I booked my ticket. Will there be enough time to get to my connecting flight? Are all united flight in the same terminal at SFO?
You arrive in the International terminal and depart from Terminal 3. They are right next to each other. You should have just enough time.
But we will still have to go trough immigration, baggage claim and security? I've never been to SFO, just thought this was a tight transfer based on experience from big US airports.
Yes, you have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, and go through security. Like I said, it's just enough time if everything goes perfectly.
Thank you! I wonder why United made my booking with such short time in between flights. There should be many flights from SFO to AUS?
There are not many flights between SFO and AUS. If you miss your connection you will be rebooked to AUS through Denver or Houston.
