  • baggage transfer for connecting flights

    Hi I am flying Delta to Seattle fro LHR London and then my connection is Alaska airlines to Las Vegas will my checked baggage be transferred? And is 90 mins enough time between flights and are the gates far apart?

     

    You will arrive in the S Satellite go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US customs, re-check your bags at the recheck desk then go through security and to your departure gate in C, D, or N.

    Hi all, I am flying from PDX to Wentachee (EAT) via Seattle on Alaska Airlines. I have an option to give myself a 51 min layover, a 1h 21min layover or a 1h 51 min layover. I am thinking the 1h 21 is sufficient and leaves enough cushion. What do you advise?

     

    Yes, I would do the 1 hr 21.

    Traveling on Delta and would like to know if 1.5 hrs. is enough connect time if arriving in A or S terminal and departing B terminal. Also, on the return flight from Vancouver to Seattle to San Diego, where do I clear customs? Thanks in advance for your help.

     

    A, B, and S are concourses, not terminals. You will preclear US immigration and customs in Vancouver. All you have to do in Seattle is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    Hi I have a flight from Phoenix to San Jose with no plane change and then to Seattle and arrive at 9:40am. My flight to Shanghai from Seattle is at 11am. Is 80 minutes connection time enough? With the new years coming up is the airport extra busy? Thanks

     

    If both tickets are on the same reservation then that is enough time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. All gates are connected inside security.

    HI, I am traveling from Edmonton, Canada to San Francisco with a layover in Seattle for 55 mins. I think I will be going through customs in Edmonton. Is this enough time? Do I have to grab my bag when I get to Seattle? Thanks!

     

    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Edmonton. All you have to do in Seattle is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate, nothing with your bags as long as all tickets are on the same reservation.

    Hi there, am Travelling back from Las vegas to Edmonton(Canada) via seatle where I have a 36 min layover..will this time be enough for the connecting flights where both the flights are operated by delta airlines

     

    That should be just enough time if your first flight is on-time.

    Hi there, I am travelling from SFO to SEA and then SEA to YYJ (Victoria, Canada). I have a 45 min layover between my two flights and I am flying with Alaska Airlines for both. Will 45 min be enough time to make my connection flight?

     

    No need to post the same question twice.

     

    You will most likely have time, but your gonna have to book it. The only big thing I would be worried about is if your flight before that gets delayed, that could be problematic

     

  • PDX - SEA, then SEA to Frankfurt

    Hello, I am traveling form PDX to SEA on Alaska airline and then will take Lufthansa from SEA to Frankfurt. I have a 45 mins layover (connection time). I want to know whether it is enough for me to catch the Lufthansa flight. Also, is it enough connection time for my checked luggage to be transferred. Thanks

     

    Sorry the layover time is 1h06mins

     

    We're all your tickets purchased on the same reservation or were they purchased separately?

     

    They were purchased together on the same reservation.

     

    Then your bags will be transferred and all you have to do in Seattle is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate via the underground train. You should have enough time.

    Hi, going from London Heathrow to Vancouver with a change at Seattle for 1hour15mins (assuming flights are on time). British Citizen with valid American Visa. Both flights on same itinerary. Can I make the connecting flight within the hour?

     

    Unless your flight from London is quite early you won't make it. The Minimum International to International connection time at SEA is 90 minutes. If you are flying Alaska to Vancouver there are almost hourly flights from Seattle to Vancouver. Contact your airline or travel agent to be rebooked on a later flight to Vancouver. You will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, go through security and to your departure gate at the other side of the airport.

     

    Thanks a lot. Will ring them up and talk to them

    Dear all, I have an Emirates flight Dubai to Seattle and Seattle to Portland by Alaskan Airlines. In Seattle I have a connection of 1h25. Is it enough time to make it to the Portland flight given I have to go through customs? Thank you very much in advance!

     

    The minimum international to domestic connection time at Seattle is 90 minutes. There are hourly Alaska Airlines flights from Seattle to Portland. Contact your travel agent or whoever you booked the tickets through to be put on a later flight to Portland.

    I am arriving SEA by Delta airlines and need to take Delta again to Alaska. In what concourse will I arrive and can you also guide me how can I make it to s satellite ? Thank you

     

    Delta uses both the A an S satellite. They are connected inside security by an underground train.

  • Going through Concourse C to South Satellite within secured area

    Will Alaska airline flight # 2250 land in Concourse C on Saturday? If so, can you give me directions to reach South Satellite station within your secured area? Thanks in advance!

     

    All gates in Seattle are connected inside the secure area. You will walk to the B Concourse and then board a train to the S Satellite. Just follow the signs pointing to the S Satellite.

    I am arriving SEA by Alaska airline and need to take Delta to Shanghai. What Concourse do I go for the connection flight? Do I use South station for international departure, or is it just for arrival?

     

    Yes, Delta International flights depart from the S Satellite.

    I need to take Alaska flight #2250 to SEA and get on Delta flight #589. Do I need to re-check in through TSA? Can you guide me to make the fastest terminal connection within 90 minutes assuming my first leg will be on time?

     

    If both flights are purchased on the same reservation then you just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You will arrive in C, D, or N and depart from S. S is connected to A and B by an underground train and A and B are directly connected to C and D. Just follow the signs. You have enough time, again if the tickets are on the same reservation. If they are two separate itineraries this is not enough time.
