I'm traveling on Air Canada (codeshare with United) from YYZ to SFO at 8am arriving at 10:40am in the International terminal with an onward connection to PDX on United at 12:30pm. Considering I would have cleared US immigration at YYZ, what would the procedure be to connect for my PDX flight?
All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have plenty of time.
Thanks for that ZAP, appreciate it.
I am flying into SFO from Redding, CA and only have 44 minutes to get my connecting flight to LHR. Is this enough time???
Sorry, connecting flight is from SFO to IAD (Washington Dulles).
Yes, that is enough time. If both flights are on United all you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both in Terminal 3.
Yes both are United. Thanks for your help!
I am planning soon on going on a flight to Canada and I might use the airtrain. Does it require me to exit and re-enter security? And as well how do I find it?
The AirTrain runs outside security. What airlines are you flying?
Arriving into SFO from LHR on United flight on the 10th December at 16:40 - will 2 hr 13 min be enough to clear US customs (have an ESTA) collect baggage and get my flight to San Diego at 18:53?
Thanks very much
Yes, that should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Arriving 5:02am on United from KOA on a Wednesday morning. Connecting to Virgin Atlantic at 6:55am. Is time sufficient for connection? Any experience with delays on the incoming United flight?
Virgin Atlantic uses the International Terminal, not Terminal 2. Do you mean Virgin America? (Virgin Atlantic also doesn't have any morning flights from SFO). Do you have checked bags?
Thanks for the correction. It's virgin Atlantic, No checked bags.
Sorry, I'm obviously not paying attention. It's Virgin AMERICA (not Atlantic). No checked bags. Thanks for your assistance.
Then yes, that should be enough time if the United flight is on-time (flights from Hawaii usually are). You will have to go through security again in Terminal 2.
Thank you , and apologies for the confusion.
What is the distance between Terminal 3, Gate 63 and International Terminal Gate 98? How many minutes do it take? Please help! Thanks
It should take less than 10 minutes to walk, maybe 15 if you are exceptionally slow.
Flying from YVR to SFO landing at 21.49. Outbound flight to SYD leaving at 23.25. Is this enough time to transit with 3 checked bags?
If both tickets are on the same reservation, yes, that is enough time. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Vancouver.
Hei, I am arriving from San diego by Virgin America at 1.30pm and connecting a flight by Emirates at 3.20pm. I have 3 checked in luggages. Will these luggages will checked through or do i have recheck with the Emirates? Thank You.
Are your tickets on the same reservation or two separate reservations? If it's all one reservation then your bags will be checked through and you do not have to claim them in San Francisco.
I will be arriving at 4.35pm with Swiss and have a connecting flight with Air Canada to Vancouver at 6.55pm. Is this sufficient time for the Connection?
Yes, that should be enough time.
Hi, We are flying into SFO on a Qantas flight, arriving at 9.30am on 14 December.
United has just changed our flight time to Denver and it is now leaving at 11.10am. Will we have enough time to make that flight or should I try to change it to the later one at 12.55pm? Thanks
I would ask for the later flight.
