  • Flying from YUL - SFO - SYD

    We are flying from Montreal to SFO and have a layover of 75 min. We have checked baggage. Do we have to claim our baggage or just go to our departure gate? Will 75 min be long enough? Thanks!

     

    Fotgot to mentiom that we might have to go from Gate G to Gate A in International Terminsl. So is 75 min enough?

     

    What airlines are you flying? You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Montreal.

     

    Air canada Fom YUL to SFO and Qantas from SFO to SYD.

     

    With checked baggage you have no chance if the two flights are on separate reservations. If you have one reservation, you have a chance.

    I booked a flight from FAT-SFO-ICN with United and its connection time is only 45 minutes. Is it enough time?

     

    Yes, that is enough time if the flight from Fresno is on-time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

     

  • Travelling from PVG to SFO to SAN via United Airlines

    I'll have 2 hours layover in SFO. According to United Airline's website, 45 minutes is the minimum check-in time prior to departure, so technically I will have 1 hour and 15 minutes to clear immigration, obtain my luggage, then check them back in. Will that be enough time to make the connection?

     

    You will already be checked in for your flight to SAN. You have enough time. You just 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.

    If I book a domestic flight from LAS arriving SFO at 21.15 do I have enough time to connect with my pre-booked Qantas SFO to SYD leaving at 23.25 10/29/16? Assuming I will not be able to check my baggage all the way through as will not on same ticket.

     

    That should be just enough time if the flight from LAS is on-time.

    If both flights are on United, then you have to go through US Immigration, claim your bag, go through US Customs, re-check your bag at the re-check desk, go through security and to your departure gate. You should have enough time.

    I am traveling in from Hawaii on united and will have a 2 hour window to get to my southwest flight, I need to collect my luggage. Is that enough time to make the connection?

     

    You have just enough time if everything goes perfectly.

     

    Thank you, I didn't know if I would have enough time to get my luggage from United and run across from terminal 3 to terminal 1 to check in my luggage with southwest.

    Hi, with a 2 hour connection from ICN to SFO to LAX, will 2 hours be sufficient in going through immigration/customs (no checkin baggage), and walk over to terminal 2 across the way? Thanks!

     

    That should be just enough time if both flights are on the same reservation and your first flight is on-time.

    My sister will go to San Francisco, but before she will stay in Vancouver for a week. She is coming from Paris to Vancouver and will make a connecting flight in SFO A week later she will fight form Vancouver to SFO. How should she fill up the ESTA application forms? Is she in transit or not, dos she need to apply ESTA twice? - Thank you

     

    She only has to apply for ESTA once. She is not considered in-transit if she is staying the night in SFO either way.

    Arriving SFO at 5:15 PM terminal 1, connecting to British Airways flight leaves at 7:15, apparently I have to go thru 2 security checkpoints. Do I have enough tiime to make my London flight? Carryon bag only. Thanks!

     

    You do not have to go through 2 security checkpoints. Where are you flying into SFO from and what airline are you flying into SFO on?

     

    Flying into SFO from seattle, on Delta. Arrival is 5:15 PM 9/6 Flying out at 7:15 on British Airways International terminial gates a-1 thru a-12. I should be at the British Airways gate at 6:50 at the latest though as the flight leaves at 7:15.Thank you!

     

    So all you have to do is walk from Terminal 1 where you arrive to the International Terminal, get your BA boarding pass if you don't already have it, and go through security. You should have enough time.

     

    Thanks! But I still have to go through a security check line right? On a map for security checkpoints at SFO there are 2 checkpoints from Terminal 1 to International terminal, so I'm a little confused.

     

    Yes, you will go through security once in the International Terminal.

    We have 75 minutes to make a connection flying from Phoenix AZ to London Heathrow. Is that enough time? We have to change terminal and I guess we shall have to go through security too.

     

    You have enough time. You do not have to go through security again. There is a walkway inside security from Terminal 3 where you arrive to Concourse G of the International Terminal where you depart.

    I have an elderly female traveling from SMF connecting to SFO arriving in terminal 3 United Airlines and connecting to terminal 1 United Airlines operated by Air Canada to Montréal. How will she get from terminal 3 to terminal 1? How long will it take and will she have to go through security again. Thank you!

     

    tickets purchased on one reservation. She has 1:25mins layover. Is that enough time?

     

    She does not depart from Terminal 1. she departs from concourse G of the International Terminal. All she has to do is walk from her arrival gate to her departure gate. She has plenty of time.
