Taking Alaskan Airlines 2487 from BLI to SEA arriving 8:30am
Next Flight is Delta Airlines 815 SEA to DTW leaves at 9:30am
Do I have enough time to make this connection with checked baggage?
Is it one reservation or two separate reservations?
Technically 1 reservation but it requires connections between 2 different airlines
If your bags are checked through it should be enough time.
Hi there,

I am traveling from Korea (using Korean Airline) to Denver thru Seattle.
After getting my luggage in SEA, and checking out of custom, how can I recheck my luggage to Alaska Airline and how can I get to the terminal for Alaska airline?
Seattle only has one terminal. if you have two separate reservations you will have to put your bags on the belt to leave the airport, then re-claim them in the main terminal, then re-check them at the Alaska airlines check in desk. If it's one reservation then you can re-check them at the re-check desk right after clearing Customs.
hi
my mom is coming from South Korea to seattle to connect to caglgary for visiting me.
We bought separate ticket, one for ICN to SEA the other one is for SEA to YYC.
My mom doesn't speak English, seems hard to transfer flight in seattle.
I want to go Seattle to help my mom to connect flight,but someone told me that the flight from canada IS considered domestic airline
so terminal is separated from international terminal(S satelite), which makes me can't find your mom inside the airport,
in order to see your mom I have to get out of airport then I can meet her outside airport.
Do you think it is true?
I am planning to buy delta or air canada ticket to go seattle. I think Delta arrives at S sattelite whether it is domestic or not, then
I can meet my mom at the main terminal or custom place. This is my guessing.
If I can't see my mom inside airport, we are going to use different way
Please share your idea. Thank you
Yes, the only place you'd be able to meet your mom is at the exit of customs in the main terminal, meaning you would be able to help her re-check her bag and go through security and board the flight to Canada. Delta flights arrive in A, B, and S.
Thank you, it's great help for me.
I am flying to Seattle on Delta, and then connecting to Amsterdam on Iceland Air. I have a little over two hours layover. My question is: if I am carrying on my bag to Seattle, but checking it to Amsterdam, do I need to go back out through security to the front desk, or can I gate check the bag?
Yes, if you want to check your bag on Icelandair you will have to exit security, check it, and go back through security.
Thank you for the response!
On August 23, we arrive at SEA from YYJ on Alaska 2385 to connect to Icelandair FI 0680.
Do we go through US immigration? We only have carry on. My wife has mobility issues and has a small lithium battery powered cart. Can you tell us the routine we must use. Thank you.
Is it two separate reservations or one reservation? How much time do you have between flights?
Two reservations, otherwise we would have had to fly to Vancouver and then Seattle.
Lots of time, but mobility is an issue.
I am arriving on Alaska Air from Medford Oregon and departing 3 hours later on a Virgin Atlantic Flight. Which terminal do I go to to connect and will I have to go through TSA again?
Thank you
Seattle only has one terminal. If both flights are on the same reservation you just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. If it's two separate reservation and you have checked bags you have to claim your bags, re-check them with Virgin Atlantic, and then go through security.
MY SELF AND WIFE COMING FROM PORTLAND TO SEATTLE BY ALASKA AIRLINES AND CATCH EMIRATES FLIGHT TO INDIA VIA DUBAI. ALL BOOKING IN SAME ONE TICKET .
I HAVE ONLY ONE HOUR AND 15 MINTUES TIME
HOW I HAVE TO TRANSFER FROM INTERNAL AIRPORT AND TIME IS OK FOR BAGGAGE COLLECTION AND IMMIGRATION CHECK ETC..IF I WEB CHECK IN IT IS OK
There is no US Immigration when leaving the US. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.
thanks lot for your reply
where ALASKA ARRIVAL GATE and departure GATE for EMIRATES?
WEATHER I HAVE TO RECHECK BAGGAGE FOR EMIRATES. MY TICKET ALL IN ONE PURCHASED THROUGH EMIRATES AT INDIA
I am flying in with Delta and my friend is flying with American are we in the same concourse so I can get to his arrival gate.
Delta uses 3 different concourses in Seattle. However, all gates are connected inside security.
Hi I'm on flt DL 2218 from HNL connecting in SEA flt DL 2397 to SLC will I have enough time to make my connection? Its only 30 minutes, landing at 5:30 am and departing at 6:00 am. Will my luggage even make it on the plane????
It's possible but it leaves no time to spare if the flight from Honolulu is late.
My parents will take flight DL128 from Beijing to Seattle. Then they connect flight DL4622 from Seattle to Victoria. They don't know if they need to claim baggage to re-check in in Seattle. Two flights are on the same booking.

Thanks,
Angela
Yes, in Seattle they will go through US Immigration, claim their bags, go through US Customs, re-check their bags at the re-check desk, go through security and to their departure gate.
