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.
How is a flight from SFO to YYC considered domestic?
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, could you advice me. I am flying in to SFO from Singapore on Singapore Airlines at 1940 hr. My connecting flight is on Delta Airlines at 2300 hr in Terminal 1. Could you please advice me if I have enough time between the flights? Thanks.
Yes, that is enough 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.
