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?
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.
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.
