I will fly from SFO and connecting at Seattle to Reykjavik. The layover time is just 1h25min. Would that be enough time for everything ? (Not sure if I need to go through custom again and claim bags). Thanks.

There is no US Customs when leaving the US. What airline are you flying from SFO to Seattle? Are both flights on the same reservation?
I'm thinking about booking a flight on Delta from HNL to JFK, transferring through SEA. The layover time is only 35 minutes, but it is one ticket on Delta -- is this enough time for a transfer? Based on historical flights, it seems like the flight lands in Terminal A and departs from Terminal S. Unfortunately, there's no way to see if this schedule typically "works" because the same route is currently scheduled slightly different (with a 1 hour layover between the flights), and I'm looking at booking the route for January.
It is possible if the first flight is on-time but it leaves no time to spare.
We arrive at Seattle on United at 11:39 a.m., need to get our bags and check them with Hainan Airlines for a 2:00 p.m. flight to Beijing. Can we make it? Do we need to take a shuttle to the South satellite to actually get on the plane?
You have to go to the main terminal, claim your bags, re-check your bags with Hainan, then go through security and to your departure gate via the Underground Train. You should have just enough time.
I'm arriving in Seattle Saturday October 21 at 4:48 pm Frontier Airlines from Denver and have booked the 7:27 pm flight with Alaska Airline to Walla Walla Wa. What gates do these two airlines normally use and how long should it take me to get from one gate to the other? Thanks for your help
Do you have checked bags or not? If you do you will have to go to the main terminal to claim them and then re-check them with Alaska.
I will have one carry-on bag with Frontier that I will have with me but I will need to check that bag with Alaska Airline. Also, what gates do Frontier and Alaska Airline normally use?
So then the gates don't really matter as you will have to exit security to check the bag with Alaska and then go back through security. You should still have enough time.
I would be arriving from sjc at 12:35 pm(delta) terminal B , and have a transit to an international flight - Amsterdam (delta) at 1:28 pm terminal S , is this sufficient enough time to make the connection?
Yes, those are just concourses not terminals. You just have to take the Train from B to S.
Flying on one ticket from MSP, arriving 10:45 am, departing to Seoul at 11:37 am, on Christmas Day. (This is not as it was when I booked the flight; Delta just informed me that it's moved the flight an hour and a half later.) I understand from other posts here that I'll just need to connect by train to a different concourse, but the connection seems too short to allow me to check a bag through. Also, isn't there a passport control something-or-other in Seattle before I board? I'm pretty worried about making that overseas flight.
No, there is no passport control or anything-or-other in Seattle before you board. There is no US Immigration or Customs when leaving the US. You just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.
