  • MFR-YVR 1 hour
    Feb 21, 2017
    i'll be arriving from MFR at 2:30pm on Alaskan and departing to YVR at 3:30pm, same airline. I'll have a checked bag. Will I have enough time?


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


  • 40minute connection

    I arrive on a United flight from Houston, then 40minutes later have an Air Canada Express/Jazz Aviation flight to Vancouver. The entire booking was made through United's website. Is 40minutes enough time to make the connection? Will I have to clear security again or just US immigration?


    Yes, that is enough time. There is no US Immigration when leaving the US. All you have to do in Seattle is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time if the flight from Houston is on-time.

    Arriving by Alaska airlines at 4:30 pm. Have a connection to Dubai in 1 hour by Emirates. Is it possible to make the connection? Thanks


    If the Alaska flight is domestic and both flights are on the same reservation that is enough time. All you'll have to do in Seattle in that case is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • LEd to LAX

    We fly from Saint Petersburg LED to Los Angeles via Amsterdam and Seattle. The first flight is operated by KLM, the other ones by Delta. We have 1 hour and 15 minutes in SEA. Is it enough for US Immigration and Customs? Where can we get our luggage? In SEA or in Los Angeles? All flights are in one ticket. Thank you


    That will be really difficult. In Seattle you will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk and go through security and to your departure gate.


  • Connection HNL-SEA-FRA

    I am arriving in SEA from HNL with Hawaiin Airlines at 9:55 p.m. with connection flight to FRA with Condor at 11:05 p.m. . Do i have to some customs check (immigration/emmigration)? Can they check in my baggage from HNL to FRA or do i have to pick it up? Is it possible to catch that flight to FRA?


    There is no US Customs when you leave the US. As far as I know Hawaiian and Condor do not have an Interline agreement. You will have to claim your bags at the main terminal, re-check them with Condor, and go through security. I do not think you have enough time if you are going to check bags.

    I will be arriving on Alaskan fron wenatchee saturday morning at 6:13 and change to Delta (domestic) leaving at 8.10 . I will only have carry-on. Is there enough time? Do I need to change terminals and go through sequrity again?


    Seattle only has one terminal. If you check in online fore your Delta flight before leaving Wenatchee, you can just walk to your departure gate. You have plenty of time.

    It's not impossible but it will be very difficult if it's two separate reservations.


    Separate reservations


  • International to Domestic
    Feb 8, 2017
    Arriving from YYJ(Canada) to SEA and transferring to SNA. I have 2 hr layover. As immigration is not pre-cleared in YYJ I'll be going through that in SEA. Will there be enough time for immigration/security and getting to the next flight in the domestic area from the international arrivals? (will be arriving in SEA around 6am PST)


    Yes, that should be enough time if everything goes smoothly, especially considering the very early morning arrival.


  • Transfer from Internation to Domestic

    I will be arriving in SeaTac from NRT on ANA airlines, then transfer to Alaska Air to PDX. My agents tells me she can not check my luggage through to PDX. I will need to get it in SEA, then checkin for the flight to PDX. I have a 3 hour layover each way. Is this enough time ? What is the best way to do this ?

    am arriving in SEA on ANA, then transit via Alaska Air to PDX. My Agent tells me she cant ticket on 1 ticket and check baggage all the way through. I have 3 hrs this enough time ? How challenging will this be ? on the return flight, similar 3 hr transit time appreciate your guidance


    3 hours should be enough time both ways, it's a little tight on the way to Portland.


  • domestic arrival to icelandair departure, is 71 minutes enought time?
    Feb 8, 2017
    alaska air from SFO and Icelandair to Kef booked on one ticket on Icelandair. our luggage will be checked all the way thru to Kef at SFO. so all we have to do is get from alaska domestic arrival to icelandair international departure in another terminal. is 71 minutes really enough time to accomplish this? should we trust icelandair that it works, since this is sold on their website?


    You should be fine.


    if the alaska airlines flight from SFO is delayed, will the icelandair hold their flight to wait for us? or would we still make it, if alaska flight is delayed half an hour? thanks for your input.


    They likely won't wait for you.


  • Enough time to transfer flights
    Feb 4, 2017
    I am flying into SEA at 7am and connecting flight departs at 8:15am to Charleston, NC. All flights are through Alaska. Will I have enough time to transfer between the two flights?


    Yes, that should be enough time if your first flight is domestic. You just have to walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. Also Charleston is in South Carolina.


  • Enuf time?
    Feb 4, 2017
    I'm traveling from Sacramento to Seattle then on to Iceland on one ticket, but two airlines (Alaska and Icelandic). My layover is approx 1 hr 50 min. Will I have time to get to the International terminal?


    Yes that is enough time. All you have to do in Seattle is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. Seattle doesn't have a separate international terminal.

    If I arrive on Hawaiian Air at 11:15 pm with one checked bag will I be able to make a connection to Alaska air at 12:30 am?


    That's barely enough time if you have checked bags


  • Luggage question
    Feb 2, 2017
    I'm traveling from Vancouver to Frankfurt but I have a 4 hour layover in Seattle. Should I pick up my luggage in Seattle or will it go straight to Frankfurt


    If both flights are on the same reservation your bags will go straight to Frankfurt as you will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Vancouver.
