  • LAS-SFO-OGG short connection

    Hi! I have a connecting flight from LAs Vegas with virgin america arriving in SFO at 8:25am and my flight to Kahului with hawaiin airlines departs at 9:55 so I only have 1hr and 30 min connection time. How far does it take to transfer from terminal 2 to international terminal? and what is the best way to get there quickly? thanks.

     

    The best way is on the AirTrain. You can make this if you don't have checked baggage or if your bags are checked through to Hawaii.

    My daughter is flying by herself for the first time. She wants to fly from Philadelphia to Seoul. United has a flight that goes Philadelphia to San Francisco to Seoul. She must transfer in San Francisco for the connection to Seoul. She only has 50 minutes to catch the connection to Seoul. Is this enough time?

     

    Yes, that is enough time if her flight from Philadelphia is on-time. All she has to do in SFO is walk from her arrival gate to her departure gate.

    I have only "38 minute connection time" in SFO to HNL. Do you think is it possible to transfer?

     

    What airlines are you flying?

     

    i flying with UA ! Thanks

     

    Yes, in that case you should have enough time as long as your flight from Vancouver is on-time. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Vancouver. All you have to do in SFO is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

     

    thanks

     

  • Enough time to catch an international flight?

    Hello, I have a flight from San Francisco to New Zealand leaving 7pm with Virgin Australia. Would a Delta flight from Salt Lake City scheduled to arrive at 4.20pm leave me enough time to catch the international flight? (2 hours, 40 minutes)

     

    Yes, that would be just about enough time. You will have to change terminals and go through security.

     

  • Traveling from New Zealand to San Francisco then to Seattle

    How long does it take to disembark from the plane once landed in San Francisco go throug customs and get to a connecting flight to Seattle, I have been allocated only 2 hours to achieve this Is this enough time ????

     

    That should be enough time if both tickets are on the same reservation.

     

    Similar routing, but starting from Europe. We will arrive around 1pm, but we will have two separate tickets. Don't know yet whether we can check our baggage trough or not. 4:10 with UA seems to risky, but the 5:30 should be alright?

    Hi, arriving SFO 16.35 on United and booked on Virgin America to Las Vegas departing 18.00. Am I likely to be able to make that?

  • Transfering from United airline to Hawaii airline

    We will travel from Dallas to SFO with United then have connecting flight with Hawaii airline. The connecting time is 2hrs. 1) What terminal we will be walking from United to Hawaii airline ? 2) Do we need to re-enter the security ? 3) Do we have enough connecting time ? Thank you

     

    You will arrive in Terminal 3 and depart from Concourse A of the International Terminal. If you have checked bags you will have to claim them from United and take them to Hawaiian. Regardless, you will have to go through security again in the International Terminal. You should have enough time, although barely if you have checked bags.

     

    Thank you for your quick response. Please note, we booked Dallas > SFO (United) > Hawaii (Hawaii Airline) thru United. 1) Do we still need to reclaim the baggages at SFO then re checkin, re enter security at International Gate A ? 2) If we only have carry on, do we have enough time ? 2

     

    If everything was booked through United then you wouldn't have to claim your bags in SFO. You will still have to go through security again in the International Terminal A concourse since it's not connected to anything else inside security. Yes, you would have enough time.

    I am flying in from DCA with a 33 minute connection to BUR. As long as my flight is on time Is that doable, even with construction?

     

    The construction is in Terminal 1. It doesn't affect United flights. You have enough time if your flight from DCA is on-time.

    If i'm coming in on United international from Sydney, Australia and need to clear customs at SFO with a US passport will 2.5 hours be enough to make it to my United domestic flight to Chicago?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time.

    I was told that there is renovation being done in the SAO airport concourses. Which concourses are affected? Will this make it difficult to make a flight connection. I am flying United 1900 Atlanta to San Francisco on March 10 and have 1 hour and 27 minutes ( if we arrive on time)to connect to United 888 to Beijing. Will that work through construction?

     

    The construction is in Terminal 1. It will not affect you. You will arrive in Terminal 3 and depart from concourse G of the International Terminal. There is a walkway connecting them inside security. You have enough time.

    I'm flying from Spain to SFO with Turkish Airlines (via Istanbul), and from SFO to Calgary with Alaska Airlines. Is 90 minutes enough time to collect my bags, check in again, security check, etc?

     

    With checked bags on two separate tickets, not I don't think that is enough time. Also Alaska airlines does not fly nonstop from San Francisco to Calgary.

     

    So, I think I'll try another flight from SFO to Calgary, with Air Canada, that leaves me 3 hours to go through all the process. Thanks for your help!

    Hi, We are flying from Philadelphia to San Francisco on United connecting to Sydney with a 45 min connection, is this do able?

     

    Yes, that is doable if the flight from PHL arrives on-time. All you have to do in SFO is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
