The ticket says m going to arrive from boston at SFO at 11am and have to change another international flight at 12:55pm. so it is 1h55 transit. do you guys think it is enough time for me? What happen it the flight from boston got delay? THanks
What airline are you flying from Boston? Are both flights on the same reservation or two separate reservations?
It is the same reservation. but the flight from boston is Delta airline. So i have to check the bags again when i am in SFO.
Actually you won't have to claim your bags again in SFO if everything is on the same reservation. You just have to go from Terminal 1 to the International Terminal and go through security.
so that means we just have to claim the bags again whenever we entry that country,right? when we leave the country, we dont have to check the bags again.?because last time when i entered the us at JFK, i have to check the bag again.
Correct, there is no US Customs when leaving the US.
So do think it is enough time (1h55mins) for me to catch the next flight?
Yes, that is enough time.
I am arriving from Denver on UA268 at 11:33am.
I am departing to Taiwan on UA871 at 12:35pm.
Is 1 hour enough time to make my connection? I have checked luggage.
Yes, all you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
There's a group of us arriving at different terminals. Any suggestions for a central meeting place to get the group together? Thanks
Hi, I will be arriving via SQ at 9am (due to SQ change of schedule), got to catch Virgin America to Seattle at 11.15am. Is that enough time to clear customs, check and rechecked luggages as well? We are non US citizens btw. Or should I change to later flight?
I personally would try to change the second flight if you can.
Note that it is enough time if both flights are on the same reservation, but it would be difficult on two separate reservations. Sorry I didn't mention that.
I am arriving at SFO from Osaka KIX at 11:15 am, and departing SFO to Dallas at 1:15 (US citizen) on a Friday. Is 2 hours enough time to get through customs, collect luggage, recheck luggage to Dallas, get to the domestic terminal and make it through security to domestic gate?
To clarify, my flight from SFO to Dallas leaves at 1:15pm
Yes, that should be enough time if both flights are on the same reservation.
Thank you, yes they are on the same reservation. Flying United
Hi there, I arrive from Auckland, NZ on 17 Dec at 6:30 am and then to Raleigh departing at 9:45 am that about 3h and 15 minutes. I am travelling with my 3y daughter. All flights are with United Airlines. Is that enough time to make it through immigration, baggage claim, customs and then drop off baggage and eventually get to the gate in terminal 3 I believe. Your input is appreciated. Thanks
Yes, that is enough time.
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.
