Does anyone know if Aer Lingus delivers arriving passengers into the International Terminal G gates straight into the secure airside terminal area so they can connect straight to United's flights in Terminal 3? The Aer Lingus flight arrives as a domestic flight because of pre-clearance in Dublin. Thanks.
There is a United Airlines flight coming from Honolulu connecting to Seattle with 44 min connection time. Is that enough time?

Yes, that is possible. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate at LAX.
I will be arriving at SFO at 9:30 AM and have connecting flight at 12PM, Both are international flight as I am making transit from US. itinerary for the flights are separate. Will I have enough time for connecting flight?
Where are you flying from and where are you flying to and on what airlines? Do you have checked bags?
I will be flying from Mexico on volaris airline and heading towards shanghai on china eastern airlines. Yes I will have checked bags.
That is barely enough time if everything goes perfectly.
Option #1 - Taking UA from YVR to SFO arrival time 8:20 then leaving 47 min later (also on UA) for AUS. Arrival 2:40pm Option #2 - same arrival time but departure is 11am so arrive at 4:45pm. Will be booking (most likely) through United's website or possibly Westjet so I could get points. Either way - I compared and flight info is same. Would prefer to get their earlier of course but if I can't run so if there's chance I won't make it I think I'd rather arrive later. Another question - not sure if right place - would UA transfer our luggage or because it's international flight do I need to pick up and then clear customs again? This is what i get for taking too long to decide - all the non stop flights are gone :-(
I'm guessing by "AUS" you're meaning Australia - not Austin, Texas?
If both flights are on United on the same reservation 47 minutes is doable, but Westjet doesn't transfer bags to United.
You will pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Vancouver.
Actually I did mean Austin, Texas. Sorry AUS is the IATA code that came up on website. It's through westjet website but both flights are United. It's $25 ticket cheaper to go westjet website than United own. Yes we have our NEXUS cards so clearing in Vancouver should be easy (I hope :-)
