I have a 1 hour layover in SFO where i arrive at International Terminal A(Hawaiian Airlines) and need to catch a connecting Flight with United Airlines at Domestic Terminal 3. Is one hour enough time and is there a way to avoid going through the security again?
There is no way to avoid going through security again. It's barely enough time without checked bags and impossible with checked bags.
I will have checked bags as well :( Do i need to re-check them? I don't understand why Expedia site would come up with such an itinerary when it is so difficult to get to the connecting flight.
I found another itinerary with a 1hr 55min layover in SFO connecting from Intl Terminal A to domestic terminal 3 (United airlines). With checked bags,would it be possible to make it ? Thank you
I'm a us citizen returning from SYD to SFO and have a 1:20 layover to get to my connecting flight to SAN. I won't be checking bags and will be flying first and business class so reentry through security is through the expedited lines. Is this enough time? I land on a Friday morning at 7:20 am and next flight departs about 8:30 am, all united.
It's barely enough time if everything goes smoothly.
We are flying a United from Denver to Kauai in January with only a 55 minute layover. Is that a safe connection with a mother who needs a wheelchair and given the fact that deicing may have to be done before the plane leaves Denver? With as popular as Hawaii is, Im afraid three of us may not be able to get out on the next flight if we miss our connection?
Yes, that should be enough time. Denver is pretty efficient at De-Icing.
I'm traveling from Mexico City to NY via SFO I land in San Fran at 22:28 & my connecting flight to NY leaves at 23:25. I have been told my bags with go through but will I get to my flight on time? I didn't choose this flight my travel agent arranged it & told me it's plenty of time but I'm a little worried, as I'm assuming I have to go through immagration & I know that can sometimes take awhile. Any advice would be helpful thanks in advance.
you have been told completely wrong. You have to 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. 58 minutes is not enough time for that, even late in the evening.
Thanks for that, I have made my travel agent change the flight that has me flying into San Fran @ 19:05 & out @ 23:25 still.
I am going to travel IND-SFO-NRT in Dec. I have 65 min. connection in SFO to board the flight to Narita, Japan. All flight tickets are under United airlines reservation and SFO to NRT is operated by ANA. ANA boarding time is normally 40 min before departure time. Will I able to make this connection?
All you have to do in SFO is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time if the flight from Indianapolis is on-time.
I am going to fly PVG-SFO-ATL. However United changed the time of the second flight. So I only have 2hr15min connection time. I am a Chinese citizen. Is it enough for me to go through the custom, take my baggage and get on the next flight?
Yes, that should be enough time if the flight from Shanghai is on-time.
