Flying on Alaska Airlines from Calgary to Seattle, collecting luggage, clearing immigration and customs then flying Alaskan Airlines domestic flight from Seattle to Sitka. 1hr 12mins. Is it enough time?
ZAP3 hr ago
You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Calgary. All you have to do in Seattle is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.
International arrival at 1 PM - Domestic connection 3.25 PM in southwest. I assume it is good enough time in Seattle airport to go through immigration and customs and catch the connection.
Question - Does southwest have a location to drop in my bags for domestic flight inside the international terminal after I go through the customs? If not, should I exit international terminal and go to southwest terminal to drop my bags and then is 2 1/2 hours still enough?
You will have to go to the main terminal with your bags to re-check them with Southwest. You have barely enough time if everything goes perfectly.
Delta changed layover in SEA to 44 mins. Flight from ATL has arrived late 8 out of 10 times, leaving only 15 mins in most cases to make it to next gate, if gate close 15 early, no one could possibly make this connection. What are my options
Can I make connection in 15 mins?.
If you miss your connection then you will be rebooked. That's the risk you take booking tight connections.
I haad 1 hour before which should be enough iN SEA I was told. Delta changed the time and since I seldom fly I did not think to check the times the incoming flights were arriving
How much time is needed and how far between terminals?
Seattle only has one Terminal. However, you will have to go through US immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags with Alaska Airlines, go through security and to your departure gate. You need at least 90 minutes, with 2 hours preferable.
