    I will arrive SEA via BA at 1700 and leave on Alaska at 1900. Is that enough time? First time int'l flyer and nervous!!


    That's enough time if the first flight is on-time and both flights are on the same reservation.


    Thank you. So, baggage is checked through on same reservation. I do have to go through customs/immigration, right? The flight is on October 14th, a Friday..


    Yes, you 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.


  • Late arrival from Heathrow, connection to Anchorage
    Sep 2, 2016
    Hi, BA flight due to arrive 17.05 now delayed nearly 2 hours. Due to depart for Anchorage at 19.55. Is there enough time to collect luggage and do check in in time to get flight?


    You won't make that. However, there may be a later flight to Anchorage that you can be rebooked on. Alaska Airlines flies lots of flights between Seattle and Anchorage, especially during the summer.

    Hi. I will be coming from Paris airport and got 2 hrs and 45 minutes connection time to get to my next flight to Lihue both via Delta air. Is it enough time?

  • minimum connecting time
    Sep 1, 2016
    I am arriving from Dubai on Emirates at 12h05 and connecting to Los angeles on AA at 14h40 - 2h35 min connecting time but have 2 separate tickets = is this enough time ?


    With checked bags that will be difficult but not impossible. Without checked bags you should be OK. Check in online for your AA flight online before leaving your origin.


  • Help - do I have enough time?
    Aug 31, 2016
    FLIGHT: Depart Anchorage at 13:30 / Arrive Seattle at 17:50 AS120 Depart Seattle at 19:10 / Arrive London Heathrow at 12:25 THU 01 SEP BA48


    If both flights are on the same reservation that is enough time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • Enough time for immigration
    Aug 31, 2016
    I am arriving in Seattle on Delta from Victoria BC and I only have one hour and ten mins to catch my Connection to New York. Is that enough time to go through customs and immigration?


    It's not impossible but it will be fairly difficult.


    So I do go through customs there then? Would you recommend that I change my flight? I'm starting to have anxiety over missing my plane.


    I arrive at 6:35 am. Wasn't sure if you needed the time. Thank you


    Yes, since Victoria doesn't have preclearance you will have to go through Immigration and Customs in Seattle. Due to the early morning arrival you should have enough time.

    I will be arriving in Seattle from Portland on Alaska airlines and have only 40 minutes to make my Alaska connection to Cancun. Will I have enough time to catch my Cancun flight with only 40 minutes?


    That is enough time if the flight from Portland is on-time. Obviously it leaves no time to spare if it is not.

  • London (YXU) to Toronto (YYZ) to Seattle (SEA)
    Aug 20, 2016
    I'm connecting from London (YXU) arriving at 6:10 am (terminal 1) in Toronto (YYZ), then departing at 8:00 am to Seattle (SEA) all through Air Canada. Will I have enough time transferring to my flight to Seattle? When will I experience customs/security checks during this trip?


    *Departure from terminal 1 in Toronto


    Yes, that is enough time. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto.


  • Which terminal for flights to Canada (Kelowna)
    Aug 19, 2016
    I want to go to a lounge before my Horizon flight to Kelowna on AS2670 on September 21. Which terminal will the flight leave from? I am arriving from Dubai and have a 6.5 hour layover.


    Seattle only has one Terminal. Once you go through security, all gates are connected.


  • Layover Time Query
    Aug 18, 2016
    Hi All, I'll be travelling from Delhi -> Dubai -> Seattle -> Boise in December end this year. My Emirates flight will be reaching at Seattle airport at 6.35 AM and then I've ongoing flight to Boise at 8.00 AM with Alaska. I have several questions about this short layover at Seattle: 1. Is this layover time of 1.25 Hr is sufficient to catch the flight for Boise ? 2. What could be chances of delay/crowd at Seattle in morning time after 6.35 AM ?


    If both flight are on the same reservation then that should be enough time. Your flight should be the only international flight arriving at that time. If you do miss your connection, then Alaska has several daily flights from Seattle to Boise. If this is two separate reservations then it's not enough time.


    Thanks ZAP for prompt reply. Yes, its the same reservation and minimum connection time is also 1.20 Hrs at Seattle. I considered average delay time for Emirates flight which is 20 minutes, so I left with only 1 Hr for everything (port of entry, terminal transport, luggage check-in, security) and that seems to be neck-to-neck. I also checked for next Alaska flight and it is after 5 hours :(


    Quick tip- Try and get seats near the front of the plane if possible. If not, get off the plane quick and walk to customs faster than your fellow passengers. Beat most of them and you should be able to make the connection. If you get off slowly and get behind the 600+ people probably on your flight in the customs line, you will probably fail to catch your connection to Boise.

    I'm travelling from Cancun via Houston (2hr 20 minutes connection and then from Houston to SEA (1hr 16 minutes connection) I'm from the UK travelling, will I be able to make it? I'm flying with United Airlines all the way.


    In Houston, you will clear customs and immigrations. In Seattle, you will simply walk from your arrival gate in concourse A to your Air Canada (operated by United) gate to Vancouver, A7. You have enough time in both Houston and Seattle.


    Also, note that the code for Cancun is CUN. CAN is Guangzhou, China.

    I will have a flight from dallas to Vancouver, I will arrive in Seatle at 10:05 and the next flight to Vancouver is 10:55. Only 50 connection. Is it enough time for me to rush to the gate. I think the two are from diffrent concourse


    Yes, if both flights are on the same reservation that is enough time.


  • Concourse Change in SEA
    Aug 11, 2016
    I'm flying Alaska Air from LAX to Victoria, BC and have a very short connection time, about 45 minutes. I'm guessing I will need to go to a gate in a different concourse. I won't be checking bags. Any idea how much time I will need to switch planes?


    That should be enough time if the flight from LAX is on-time.


  • How early to arrive?
    Aug 10, 2016

    About 4 should be sufficient.
