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.
I'm flying Alaska Air from LAX to Victoria, BC and have a very short connection time, about 45 minutes. I'm guessing I will need to go to a gate in a different concourse. I won't be checking bags. Any idea how much time I will need to switch planes?
That should be enough time if the flight from LAX is on-time.
I have a 5:30 am flight. How early do I need to arrive at the airport?
About 4 should be sufficient.
I have 1:20 connection in SEA to go onwards to Canada (Vancouver then onto Edmonton). Do I need to collect luggage and clear US customs just to connect or are the bags checked through? This would all be on the same ticket.
Yes, you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags, go through security and to your departure gate. Even if all your flights are on the same reservation that's not reasonably enough time.
We are flying from LHR to SEA and then have 2 hours to get on an Alaskan airlines flight to Bellingham, is this enough time? We will have 2 checked bags and the bookings were made separately our international flight is with BA...what will we need to do? Thanks
You will arrive in the S Satellite, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, put your bags on another belt to go to the main terminal, take a train to the main terminal, then go to the baggage claim and claim your bags again then take them to the Alaska Airlines check-in desk, check your bags, go through security and to your departure gate. I would just drive to Bellingham.
Also, I don't know if i was clear but it's practically impossible to do that in 2 hours.
