  • Dubai to LAX via SEA with 2 hour stop
    Mar 3, 2016
    DBX to SEA is on Emirates SEA to LAX is on Alaska Air (codeshare with Emirates) Both flights are on same ticket. 1. Will I need to clear Immigration at SEA and travel domestic to LAX? 2. Will I need to collect bags at SEA, recheck the bags at Alaska Air counter & then go through security check to catch my SEA-LAX flight? 3. Is 2 hrs enough time for the transfer? My DBX-SEA flight arrives at 7AM (0700 hrs) Thanks!


    Yes, in Seattle you will arrive in the S Satellite, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk right after customs, then go through security and take the underground trains to your departure gate in the C, D, or N concourse. You should have enough time.


  • The Distance between JetBlue Gates and Air Canada Gates
    Mar 1, 2016
    How long does it take to walk from JetBlue Gates to Air Canada Gates? ptwzhm


    Air Canada and Jetblue both use concourse A, so it should take less than 5 minutes.

    I have a 57 min between flights from Seattle to Anchorage. Coming from Boise. Will I have time?


    Yes, assuming both flights are on the same reservation that should be enough time. All gates in Seattle are connected inside security.


    I'm flying Delta. Are all their gates in the same concourse?


    Delta uses gates in S, A, and B concourses.

    Hi I have 70 mins for my connecting flight to Dubai. (Emirates) I will come from pdx Alaska. Will this be sufficient time and how far would be the destination terminal?


    No, that is completely insufficient for an International to Domestic connection through Seattle. You need at least 90 minutes if both tickets are on the same reservation (preferably 2 hours) If you are purchasing two separate reservations and have checked bags then you need 3 hours. Seattle only has one terminal.


    It is other way. I am coming from pdx and going to Dubai. So domestic to international. My check-in will be done in pdx only. Please let me know now


    Could you please guide me how to reach S16 from N16? Without security check-in? How much it will take?


    You take the underground train to C, walk to B, and then take the underground train to S. There are signs. It shouldn't take more than 20 minutes.

    Hi, I try to book at least two hour layovers because I cannot run through terminals as I used to do! Delta just changed my scheduled flight so that I arrive in SEA from DTW at 5:17 pm on June 1 and depart at 6:10 pm for Sitka. It is the only Delta numbered flight to Sitka each day so if I miss it, I miss a whole day of vacation. Is there a way to know how close together the gates will be for the arriving flight from DTW and the departing flight to SIT? Thank you!


    There's really no way of knowing, Delta's gates at SEA are spread out because they are growing so fast there. You could call delta and because of the involuntary schedule change, request that they rebook you on an earlier flight from Detroit if you can do that.


  • Flying LHR to SFO via SEA

    Hi Flying from London to San Francisco via Seattle with only 90 mins between flights - will I make it? Cheers


    That's just enough time if everything is on the same reservation and everything goes smoothly.

    Can you go from Gate N9 to Gate S12 without going through security?


    Yes, you take the train from N to C, then walk from C to A or B, then take the Train to S.


  • Is 35mins layover sufficient to change flights ?
    Feb 22, 2016
    I am coming from SFO to Seattle by united airlines UA733 which lands at 21.50 and have Air canada AC544 flight at 22.25 from seattle to toronto. Do you think 35mins is sufficient layover to change flights.? please help !


    It's enough time if your flight from SFO is on-time.


  • MSP to DXB via SEA - need info regarding transit in SEA
    Feb 20, 2016
    I am flying from MSP to SEA on Alaska airlines to catch the flight to Dubai(Emirates). How do I go to South satellite from C,D or N gates. I read there is an underground train but somehow I couldn't find in terminal maps. Could you please explain in details how to transit between C,D or N to S gates without going thru security again.


    If you arrive in C or D you will walk to A or B and take the underground train from there - there will be signs pointing to S. If you arrive in N you will have to take a different underground train to C or D first.


    I, too, am scheduling a flight from DEN via SEA to Dubai. Is 1hr 56mins enough time to make that connection?


    Yes, that should be enough time.


  • Transit in SEA
    Feb 19, 2016
    My airline just rescheduled my flight. I now only have 2 hours to connect from a flight coming in from Japan (ANA) and transit to an Alaska Airlines to Fairbanks (separate booking). Is 2 hours sufficient to clear the international immigration, customs etc, and make it for check-in at the Alaska Airlines? I will be having 1 check-in bag.


    2 hours is not enough time when on two separate reservations with checked bags because you will have to go to the main terminal to reclaim your bag after going through customs and then re-check it at the Alaska check-in counter. If ANA changed your flight time maybe have them change it to fly in the day before. If Alaska changed it have them change you to a later flight to Fairbanks.


  • Connecting flight to SFO

    I have a connecting flight from SEA to SFO with a 35min layover at 6.00am in the morning. Is it enough time to get through ?

    What airlines are you flying? Where are you flying into SEA from? I can't answer your question without that info.


    where u able to make this flight.? is 35mins sufficient? I am traveling in the same flight so wondering if its sufficient.


  • Connection
    Feb 15, 2016
    I will be flying with Delta for a Vancouver to San Jose flight. I will have a 49 minutes layover at Seattle. Would 49 minutes be enough?


    Yes, that should be enough time if your first flight is on-time. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Vancouver.


  • Connection with Delta airline with checked luggage
    Mar 2, 2016
    I will have connected flight from Denver to SEATTLE/TACOMA, and then to Shanghai, China. I will likely have one checked luggage, and the lay over time in SEATTLE/TACOMA is 64 minutes. Is that time enough for the checked luggage to transit to the next flight, and for me to make the connection? Thank you.


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


    Hi, am arriving at seatac from narita at 11.30 am and have a connecting flight with Alaska to Missoula, I believe that there are check in counters right after customs, is this correct ?
