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.
