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.
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.
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.
Arriving in SEA from Honolulu on Delta DL 2218 at 6:55, is there enough time to connect to Delta DL 4758 to Spokane At 7:30??
THank you very much.
8/25  DL 4758 Seattle(07:30)-Spokane(08:42)
Yes, that is enough time if the first flight is on-time.
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.
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.
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.
