    We will be landing with Air Canada from Toronto and grabbing a connecting flight with United to Hawaii. Is 2h24m layover for a week day, August afternoon plenty of time? Do we have to grab our bags and go through security again? Thanks!

     

    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. All you have to do in SFO is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have plenty of time.

    Hello, we are flying in to SFO with Lufthansa at 19.00 and would like to get a flight to Las Vegas. Latest available ticket departs 22.30. Do you think that this is enough to clear the immigration and re-check the backs? Is there an inside transfer or do we have to go the way if SF is your last destination and then go back to the counter and check in. Thank you

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. Yes, you will have to take your bags outside and re-check them with your airline to Las Vegas and then go through security.

    I arrive on QF73 at 0930 and have a UA flight to ORD at 1120. Carry on luggage only. Will this be enough time? Thank you!

     

    Yes, with carry-ons only that should be enough time. Check in for your United flight online before leaving Australia.

     

    Great I will do so - thanks so much!

    Flying Qantas SYD - SFO ETA 0930, transfer to Air Canada to YVR, ETD 1205. Booking is all on one ticket. Is this sufficient to clear immigration, customs, recheck bags and re-clear security?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.

    Trave Sin-Sfo intransit-Yyc , do I need to clear custom? Is 1hr 15 min enough?

     

    Yes, you have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags, go through security and to your departure gate. That is a very difficult connection and is shorter than the recommended International to domestic connection time.

    I will flight from Houston BY united airline to San Francisco(terminal3) then go to terminal for Air China. Only 1 hr connect. any good suggestion. many thank

     

    If both flights are on the same reservation then all you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. There is walkway inside security from Terminal 3 where you arrive to Concourse G of the International Terminal where you depart.

     

    many thanks!!!

    All through United -- arriving in SFO at 7:15am, departing to YYC at 9:01am. Is 1h45min realistically long enough? Or should I look for a longer connection? It will be a teen flying by herself, and I don't want her to have to rush or panic. Thanks!

     

    Yes, that is enough time if the flight from Australia is on-time.

    Hi there, I'm flying United from CDG to SNA, with a two hour layover in SFO. If I decide to just stay in SFO, will I be able to obtain my checked luggage? Or will the luggage go directly to SNA?

     

    In SFO you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, go through security and to your departure gate.

    Flying in from Singapore eta: 9:40. Connecting to United Airlines etd: 11:21. Is that doable or I should get a later connecting flight? Thank you.

     

    If both flights are on the same reservation and you have checked bags that's just enough time.

     

    Not the same reservation and different airlines. Thank you.

     

    Then I would get a later flight.

     

  • ORD to NAN-FIji with connection in SFO

    Hello. I'm flying from O'Hare to Fiji with a connection in SFO. ORD to SFO is on American and arrives at 8:16 PM and departs for Fiji at 11:59 PM. I know we'll have enough time to make the connection, but how do we transfer to the international terminal? We'll check luggage through to our final destination if possible. But do we have to go through security again?

     

    You will take the AirTrain to the International Terminal and go through security. You have plenty of time. You may have to stop at the Fiji Airways check-in desk to get your boarding passes to Fiji before going through security.
