I am arriving on Alaska Airlines at 8:30pm from Bozeman, MT and want to know if I can make a 9:10 pm flight on Southwest Airlines.
With checked bags, absolutely not. With no checked bags, barely, if the first flight is on-time and you run and you check in online for your Southwest flight.
Will a layover of 40 minutes be enough for transferring at SEA to another Delta plane at 7 A.M. and do I need to claim baggage at SEA, or will the Delta airline automatically transfer it to the flight going to JFK?
You 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. You have enough time if the flight from Vancouver is on-time. You don't have to do anything with your bags.
HI - i am coming on a Icelandair flight to Seattle 6th november and taking an air canada flight to vancouver. The air canada flight was supposed to leave at 9 pm but leaves now at 6:30pm - Is there a enough time , 1,5 hour , for transit at the airport? thank you
With no checked bags that is barely enough time. With checked bags that is now impossible. You can request the Air Canada schedule change and ask to be rebooked on the flight the next morning or get a refund and see if there's a later flight on Alaska or Delta.
Hi, We booked with virgin Atlantic from LHR to HNL, changing planes in Seattle to continue to HNL (Delta flight), we will be checked in the whole way.. Originally transfer time was 3 hours, it is now 90 minutes, is this enough time to clear customs, immigration, collect baggage and drop it off again?
Yes, that should be just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
I will be arriving from FRA at 11.50 am. I will only have carry on luggage. Will I be able to make a flight to RDM with Delta at 2 pm with going through customs and all? Looking forward to your reply.
Btw, I have two separate tickets.
With carry-ons only that should be just enough time. Check in online for your flight to Redmond before leaving Europe.
Hello, we are flying from YYJ to ORD on November 11through Seattle. Our flight gets into Seattle at 1:56pm and we have 1:14 connection time for our flight to ORD. Will we have enough time???
If both flights are on the same reservation that should be just enough time.
They are. So yay!
Planning to take United flight from Boston arriving in SEA at 10:39 am, and then hoping to make an 11:40 Alaskan Air flight to Sitka. These will be two separate tickets, as we're using miles for the United flight and buying the Alaskan one. However, United in Boston says they can transfer the luggage once it arrives in Seattle. Is one hour enough tie to make the connection? Thank you.
United doesn't fly from Boston to Seattle - are you stopping somewhere else first? United won't check your bags through to Alaska Air for you. With two separate reservations and checked bags I see no way you can make this.
I will be flying into SeaTac from YYJ on Monday in November early morning (arriving around 6-630 am)...with an hour and a half layover before leaving SeaTac for DEN. I have only one bag and it is usually not checcked,unless it is on a valet cart. Delta airlines. Is one and a half hours to get from the plane in SeaTac to the DEN gate (including chexkpoi ts) enough time? I have flown this route more tgan once, but this is the first time leaving myself only 1.5 hrs. Thanks
Yes, that should be enough time.
How long does it take to get from terminal (C) Alaskan Airlines to baggage claim?
Maybe 10 minutes. C is a concourse, not a terminal.
Hi There,
we are flying from FAI to SEA arriving at 1929 on DL and then on a separate ticket we depart at 2125 from SEA to YVR with AC.
is this enough transit time (2hrs) in SEA?
With no checked bags that should be plenty of time. With checked bags that should be enough time.
