    I will be flying in from the UK and landing in SEA for a connecting flight to Sacramento. Will 1 hour 40 minutes be enough to time to clear immigration (US citizen),baggage claim, and to make it to the gate in time?


    If both flights are on the same reservation that is just enough time if everything goes smoothly.


  • PDX to SEA to ANC
    Jan 21, 2017
    My wife and I are flying from Minneapolis to PDX arriving at 12:49pm, our connecting flight to Seattle departs at 1:14pm. This only gives us 25 minutes before our plane leaves. Will our gate be closed? Will this be enough times to catch our flight or is it too tight and likely to be missed? Thanks!


    so you're talking about a connection in Portland? (you posted this in the Seattle forum). It's enough time if the first flight is on-time. It obviously leaves no time to spare if it's not.


    Oops. Just noticed that. Thanks for your reply.


  • Will I need to pass US imm when connecting to Vancouver?
    Jan 18, 2017
    Hello I am flying into SEA with Virgin from Heathrow and connecting on a Delta flight to Vancouver, same ticket, through check in. Will I need to pass US immigration? I am asking so that I put the correct arrival date when applying for my ESTA. Thank you in advance for your assistance. Roop


    Yes, you will 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.


    Thank you ever so much ZAP. Really appreciate you taking the time to reply. I have two hours so I guess i will be fine plus DL has later flights as well in case I miss this. Cheers and have a good day!


  • SLC -> SEA -> HKG
    Jan 18, 2017
    I fly into Seattle from Salt Lake City, but only have 1 hr and 3 minutes to get to the international terminal to fly to Hong Kong. WIll that be enough time? Will I have to recheck my bags before I go to hong kong? Thanks


    Seattle doesn't have an "International Terminal". If both flights are on Delta, all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You don't have to do anything with your bags. There is no US Customs when leaving the US. You have enough time if both flights are on the same reservation and the first flight is on-time.


    Thanks for your help! You should get a raise for all of asking the same thing in a different way:)


  • SMF to SEA to KEF
    Jan 17, 2017
    Flights were booked through Icelandair, but first leg from SMF to SEA is on Alaska Air. We land at SEA at 2:35pm, with departure to KEF Iceland at 4:00pm. Will we need to collect checked bags, re-enter security, go through customs, and re-check bags? Or do the checked bags transfer from Alaska to Icelandair automatically? If we have to do all steps, will 1 hour + 20 minutes be enough time?


    No, you do not have to do anything with your bags in Seattle on your way to Iceland. There is no US Customs when leaving the US. You have enough time. You just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • how to get from C20 to N3 at SEA
    Jan 17, 2017
    My flight arrives from YVR at 2pm on AS702 (I believe at C20) and my connection to LAX departs at 2:45pm from N3 (I gather). How long will it take me to get to N3 from C20 and how?


    There is an underground train that connects N to C and D. You have just enough time if the flight from Vancouver is on-time.

    Hi I am flying from PDX - SEA - DXB. Alaska reaches SEA by 7:19 am and my flight to DXB is by 9 am. Emirates website says the gate closes 20 minutes prior. Is this time enough for moving along with family and kid?


    That is plenty of time if both flights are on the same reservation. You just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • London to Canada through Seattle
    Jan 16, 2017
    My flight arrives from Heathrow at 10:35am and my connecting flight to Kelowna leaves at 1:53pm. Will I have enough time to get through everything?


    Yes, that should be plenty of time.


  • South satellite terminal to A terminal
    Jan 15, 2017
    How long does this take to get from south satellite to terminal A? Arrive at 5am take off 6:20AM. KOA-SEA via delta then SEA-EWR via United. I don't need to go thru security again will I? Thank you!


    If you don't have checked bags then you don't have to go through security again. The trains shouldn't take you more than 20 minutes.


    Yipes we have checked bags...


    You think the security line is long at that hour. If some of us have TSA pre will that help? Thank tou very much.


    With checked bags you have no chance of getting your bags and re-checking them with United before the bag-check cutoff. Either don't check bags or don't try this connection.


  • Tight connex to LHR
    Jan 13, 2017
    Hi, Flying from PDX to LHR via SeaTac, booked on British Air with codeshare on AlaskaAir for first leg, but only 50" connex time in SeaTac - enough time if I do carry on only? Many thanks for your kind assistance.


    Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do in Seattle is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


    Jan 13, 2017
    PDX-SEA 08:30-09:18 SEA-YYC 10:30-12:58 Both segments on AS on the same ticket with check-in baggage. Is the 1:12 transit time enough? Thanks!


    Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


    Thanks a lot!


  • IS 1 hour enough from domestic terminal to international
    Jan 13, 2017
    HI, I am traveling from seattle to delhi at 1.27 p.m. with delta and reaching seattle at 12:17.p.m. from alaska. Is 1 hour enough time to change terminals ? both tickets on same reservation.


    Seattle only has one terminal. There are no nonstop flights from Seattle to Delhi. Where are you flying first?


    Hi i am going to Shanghai first then Delhi. I am concerned what is the cut off for boarding in delta flights ?


    It'll probably close at about 15 minutes before departure. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


    thanks a lot !!


  • MSP to SEA to Victoria
    Jan 12, 2017
    will a 45 min layover be enough time assuming the flight from MSP is on time? all delta flights


    Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • Can I make it?
    Jan 12, 2017
    Coming in from AMS at 2:00pm and then fly out to SAN at 3:00pm only 1 hour but I have Global entry pass. Can I make it?


    And I will have checked baggage


    With global entry you might have a chance if your bags come out quickly, but even then it will be really difficult.


    Would it be quicker if we managed to carry on?


    Yes, that would help quite a bit.

    hi, I am flying AS2161 YYJ/SEA connecting to AS746 SEA/BOS issued on same ticket. Enough time, or best to take the DL16 at 1025 issued on separate ticket. Thank you Mehdi


    I don't know if you have enough time as you did not post the times of your flights. Always go with flights on the same ticket though.


    AS2161 gets into SSEA at 0840am and AS746 departs at 0955. Only carry on
