  • International to Domestic connection time
    Apr 1, 2015
    I will be arriving at 11:35 at Seattle airport from China with a connecting flight on Alaska airline departing at 1400 to DEN. Will this give me enough time to make this connection?


    Yes, this should be plenty of time if tickets were purchased together and enough time, if tickets were purchased separately.


  • Confused by AS baggage policy
    Mar 30, 2015
    AS phone agent said it is possible to thru check my baggage from YVR to SFO but the web policy does not agree. I have separate bookings travelling AS 2033 YVR - SEA and then AS 308 SEA - SFO Thu 7 May. Connection time 75mins. Do you know if bags are transhipped and if not is 75mins enough time to collect bags and recheck.


    Since both flights are on AS the agent in Vancouver should be able to handle joining the two bookings and checking your bags through to SFO. Even if they are not, 75 mins is probably sufficient time to claim and re-check your bags.


    Thanks ZAP.


  • Enough time to make my connection
    Mar 29, 2015
    I have a UK passport and will be arriving on a BA flight from LHR on 11 Sept at 17.05. I have an Alaskan flight for Portland departing at 19.00. Will I have enough time to make this flight - and what is the best way to transfer between the arrival and departure terminal. Will I have to collect my luggage and check in again with Alaskan? Many thanks for your help.


    You will arrive in the S satellite, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, and go through US Customs. Then if your bags are tagged through to Portland you can re-check your bags at the transfer desk, then go through security and take the underground trains to your departure gate in the C, D, or N concourse.


    Many thanks for that reply. Do you think I will have enough time to make the connections bearing in mind it is international transferring to domestic?


    Yes, if you purchased your tickets together that is enough time.


  • Domestic transfer to international
    Mar 27, 2015
    My domestic flight (Southwest airline) arrive in Tacoma airport on 10:30am. My next international flight (Korean airline) departing on 2:15pm. I need to claim the baggage and check the baggage for my international flight. Do I have enough time????


    Yes, that should be enough time. Everything is in the same Terminal building so after you claim your bags you'll just have to find your way to the Korean check-in desk.


  • short transfer time in SEA to amsterdam flight
    Mar 19, 2015
    Hi - I am flying SMF to SEA, then on to Amsterdam. Time in Seattle has just been shortened to 43 minutes. It makes me a little nervous. Any advice/comment? Thanks so much.


    That should be enough time if your first flight is on-time. both flights should be in the S Satellite.


  • 30 minute connection- is it possible?
    Mar 19, 2015
    I will be arriving from SFO with a 30 minute connection at SEA to HND. I talked to a DeltaAssist rep on Twitter and she said it would be enough time. I see that traditionally the flight arrives to gate S4 and the next flight departs from S8. Community- what do you think? Is this doable? Would it be unwise to check a bag? Thank you!


    Yes, that would be enough time if the first flight is on-time.

    Hello! i'm citizen and flying UA on purchased ticket to SEA arrival at 10:34 am Connecting with Award Ticket on DELTA (international - to ICN) departing 12.12pm. Not purchased together.different ticket numbers. Will I have to claim baggage and check-in and if so, is there enough time? thanks!


    sorry its 12:12am


    sorry again! its 12:21 pm .I was right. (sorry for confusing )


    Yes, you will have to claim your baggage. You will BARELY have enough time to make this connection with checked baggage as the checked bag cutoff will be 11:21 AM. You will need to arrive, go to the main terminal, claim your bags, and bring them to the Delta counter by this time or you will have missed your flight.


  • Las Vegas-Seattle-Seattle-VIctoria
    Mar 16, 2015
    Hi. My flight is entirely with Alaska Airlines. I am leaving Las Vegas and arriving in Seattle (domestic flight) at 12:25pm. I am then leaving 60 minutes later, at 1:25pm to Vancouver BC (international flight.) Will this layover be enough time to make the connection? Also, how long of a walk is it from the 2 gates. cheers


    That should be plenty of time. It shouldn't take more than 10-15 minutes to get between gates.


  • enough time?
    Mar 12, 2015
    I'm a Cdn. citizen and am flying from Malaga spain to Vancouver. I arrive in seattle at 14:22 and my Vancouver flight leaves at 15:22. Will I have enought time to get my luggage and make the connection?


    NO! 1 hour is not enough time for an International to International connection at any US Airport, especially Seattle. You need to book a later flight to Vancouver. If you are booking a separate flight to Vancouver from your Malaga-Seattle flights, you need to leave at least 3 hours between flights in Seattle. If it's all one booking, leave at least 2 hours.

    I will be taking a flight from honolulu to seattle and reach seattle at 05:59 and i need to catch another flight at 07:10 from seattle to New York City. Is this enough time? Thank you!


    If your tickets were purchased together or if you aren't checking any bags that should be enough time. If you purchased separate tickets and have checked bags, you won't have enough time to transfer the bags.


    Thank you ZAP. Tickets are purchased together and same airline (delta) but i will have bags to check in. Is it possible that i can request for the bags to reach New York City directly from Honolulu when i check in at Honolulu? Much appreciated reply! Thank you!


    Yes, since you purchased your tickets together your bags will be checked through to NYC. You don't have to do anything with them in Seattle. All you have to do in Seattle is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You should have plenty of time.


  • Amsterdam - Seattle - Sacrmento
    Mar 10, 2015
    I am considering a flight from Amsterdam - Seattle with a 1.21 min stopover for my connecting flight to Sacramento. All flights with KLM/Delta. Will this be enough time?


    That's 9 minutes below the minimum recommended connection time for an International to Domestic connection at SEA.


    :( I was hoping that 1 hour 21 mins would be enough. Thanks for letting me know.


  • Domestic connection at seatac
    Mar 9, 2015
    My 16 year old son needs to make the last connecting flight from SEA to BLI after flying in from LAX. Lands from LAX at 1020, flight from BLI leaves at 11:15pm. Is this enough time to make the connecting flight to BLI?


    Yes, that should be plenty of time if the flight is on-time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • IAH - SEA - ICN - Different Airlines - Enough time to connect?
    Mar 8, 2015
    Flying UA on purchased ticket to SEA; arrival at 1213. Connecting with Award Ticket on OZ (Asiana - a star alliance partner); departing 1400. Different ticket numbers. Will I have to claim baggage and check-in and if so, is there enough time?


    You can show your Asiana ticket to the UA agent in Houston to see if they will check your bag through to ICN but they are not obligated to. Otherwise, yes, you will have to go back to the main terminal to get your baggage and re-check it. Which you would barely have enough time to do.
