Hi,

I'm looking at a flight from Frankfurt to SFO, and then 2 hours later a connecting flight to Las Vegas. The international flight is aboard a A380. We would have checked bags and the immigration & customs to go through. Seems like a pretty narrow window... Is it worth taking the risk?

Thanks

That is possible if both flights are on the same reservation and the first flight is on-time.
We are flying into San Francisco on united then connecting onto another united flight to Cancun. We obviously arrive at the international terminal but I think the Cancun flight is from terminal 3. Do we have to clear security for this? Thanks
The Cancun flight will depart from the International Terminal as well. Where are you flying into San Francisco from?
Sydney AU but on my itinerary it says the cancun flight was from terminal 3 which surprised me.
I am flying United from Toronto to SFO then United to Honolulu. Will i need to go through security again and re check my luggage?
You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
How long does it take, and how can I go in San Francisco from the International Terminal to Terminal 2 ?
The airTrain connects all terminals outside security. It doesn't take very long. What airlines are you flying?
I am flying on united from PHIL to SFO arriving at 2146 in T3, and then SFO to Singapore on United at 2250 from T1. Will the 1hr transit time be sufficient to travel from T3 to T1.

Many thanks
You do not depart from T1, you depart from the International Terminal. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. There is a walkway inside security between T3 and concourse G of the International Terminal. You have enough time.

Flying in on SW (MKE-SFO) at 1:30, and then departing on United (SFO-OGG) at 4:30. What would all be involved in baggage and terminal change? Would I have plenty of time if flights are on time?
That should be enough time. You will have to claim your bags from Southwest, take them to United in Terminal 3 and re-check them and go through security.
Travelling on Qantas to SFO, landing at 9.30am but need to get to Kansas City. Have the option of booking Americal Airlines with one stop (with the advantage the AA is a One World Partner and the luggage is tagged) or booking a direct flight with United. Prefer the United option which departs at 1.18pm. Will I make this connection with transfers and checking in luggage for the domestic route?
Yes, that would be enough time.
just checking our flights from Sydney Aus on Qantas QF73 with connection flight Qantas/American airlines QF3120. we arrive San Fran at 9:30am with departure at 11:00am. Is this enough time to transfer 2 adults and 2 kids? what terminals are involved and what else do we need to consider? this was how the booking was given to us.
I'm arriving from Minneapolis to sfo at 813am and connecting for a flight to Hawaii at 900am. Is that enough time
Yes, that is enough time if the first flight is on-time. You just have to walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate if they're on the same airline.
