Flying to Sweden, leaving SFO at 9 a.m. on Virgin America to LAX and then from LAX on SAS. How early should we be at the airport and do we check in at the international terminal in SFO? Or do we check in domestic and recheck in at LAX to the international terminal?
Virgin America uses Terminal 2 at SFO - you check in there. If it's two separate reservations you will have to claim your bags in Terminal 6 in LAX and then take them to the International Terminal to re-check them with SAS.
Thanks. What if it is all on the same ticket? Then we check in with SAS?
How do I gt from International to Terminal 3.
You can walk. They're right next to each other.
My husband needs shuttle/wheelchair assist from air train to united gates.
Then you need to contact your airline to request wheelchair service.
if i arrive at 4:45 and sucessfully use the customs passport app is it likely i will be able to catch a 5:30 shuttle?
It's possible, but it'll be close.
I am travelling Auckland to SFO then onto Calgary. When I go through Customs, do I pick up checked luggage to go through customs and then recheck it for connecting flights
Yes, 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.
Hello, I am flying from Boston to Vancouver with a 1 hour layover in SFO. I will be checking one bag in Boston, and both legs of this flight were made on the same reservation. I also noticed that I land in terminal 3 in SFO, and also depart from the same terminal to Vancouver. Will one hour be enough time to make my connection, and will it be enough time for my bags as well?
Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
We have 1h38min to get to our connecting flight. Do we have to clear security again even though both airlines use the same terminal and area G
No, you will not have to go through security again if your bags are checked through to Fiji.
Arriving gate71A departing gate 95. How long of a walk is it

I'm flying from Saskatoon to Calgary and then to Tokyo, Japan with a 1:30h layover in San Francisco. Will I have enough time to make my connecting flight to Tokyo? Any feedback would be appreciated. Thank you.
Yes, if all flights are on the same reservation that is enough time. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Calgary.
Thank you very much!
