Looking at a flight YVR-SEA-AMS-PRG. First flight is KL7773 arrives at 12:25, leaving me 1 hour to catch the 13:25 KL6032 SEA-AMS. I will be travelling with a checked bag. Is this enough time.
Yes, that is enough time. Both flights are operated by Delta. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Vancouver. All you have to do in Seattle is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
My daughter will fly from Detroit to Seattle, connecting to international flight to Hong Kong, all on Delta. She only has one hour from arriving in Seattle to her international departure. Is this enough time? Don't know if domestic arrival and international departure (all Delta) are in the same concourse and if she will have to go through security again.
That is enough time. She likely will have to change concourses, but all concourses in Seattle are connected inside security. She will likely depart from S which is connected to A or B where she will arrive by an underground train.
Thank you, that's reassuring.
Flying Alaska Flt 2337 to SEA arrive 6:44pm. Depart Alaska Flt 678 at 7:40pm to DEN. Wednesday 12/28. 56 min to switch flights. Is that enough time? Slow walker carrying CPAP bag.
Yes, that is enough time.
I'm flying into Seattle with BA from Heathrow on Sunday Jauary 22nd. ETA 16.15. Connecting flight to Kona (Alaska Airlines) is 18.20. Flights are on the same itinerary.

I'll have to go through immigration and customs then recheck my bag.

Will I make it in time?
Yes, that should be enough time.
Thanks for the reassurance.
I'm flying economy so unlikely to get off the plane quickly. I prefer a window seat but may select an aisle one to save a few minutes.
Update,

All went well. Some pax with very short MCT were met by ground staff to expedite transfer.

I made it with one hour to spare.

Thanks for your help!
I arrive into Seattle on Saturday 21st Jan at 10.35am, flying with BA from London. I want to get a separate flight to Vancouver at 11.50am, giving 1hr 15 for connection. So they won't be connecting flights, and I will have checked luggage. Is this long enough or am I cutting it fine? Thanks
No, that's pretty much impossible. You need at least 2.5 hours if you're making this connection on two separate reservations with checked bags.
I fly with United from Denver to Seattle and from Seattle to Tokyo with ANA. Could someone please tell me which terminal I will arrive and depart at SEA? Also, what type of transportation I need to take and how long would it take to go from my arrival terminal to the departure terminal (I have a 2h22 connection)? One last question, do i need to recheck in with ANA to get my boarding pass and seat? Thanks!!
Seattle only has one terminal. You will arrive in concourse A and depart from concourse S. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate if both flights are on the same reservation.
1. Hi, Is 1 Hour 55 Minutes sufficient to transfer from Alaska Airlines (YEG - SEA) to Emirates (DXB)? Will be completing US Customs check at YEG.
2. Do we need to collect bags at SEA and re-checkin at SEA?
3. Do we need to go through security check again at SEA?

Thanks.
That is plenty of time. You do not have to do anything with your bags or go through security in Seattle if both flights are on the same reservation. Yes, you will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Edmonton.
Arriving SEA through emirates and have a connection time of 2 hours to board Alaska air to SFO.. Is the time sufficient?
Yes, that should be enough time if the Emirates flight is on-time.
THANKS A TON
We will be travelling on route YEG-SEA-DXB-DAC. US Immigration check and luggage tagging will be completed at YEG (YEG has US immigration counters). Do we need to collect luggage again at SEA during transit? Thank you.
If everything is on the same reservation then you don't have to claim your bags in Seattle.
Good point! Yes on the same reservation. Thank you for your response.
I am travelling from Victoria to Kona with a connection in Seattle. It is only 1:15min between flights. Do I have to get my luggage in Seattle and go through customs. Will this be enough time?
Thanks!
Yes, 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. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
