  • Distance between gates
    Feb 28, 2016
    Hi, I try to book at least two hour layovers because I cannot run through terminals as I used to do! Delta just changed my scheduled flight so that I arrive in SEA from DTW at 5:17 pm on June 1 and depart at 6:10 pm for Sitka. It is the only Delta numbered flight to Sitka each day so if I miss it, I miss a whole day of vacation. Is there a way to know how close together the gates will be for the arriving flight from DTW and the departing flight to SIT? Thank you!


    There's really no way of knowing, Delta's gates at SEA are spread out because they are growing so fast there. You could call delta and because of the involuntary schedule change, request that they rebook you on an earlier flight from Detroit if you can do that.


  • Flying LHR to SFO via SEA

    Hi Flying from London to San Francisco via Seattle with only 90 mins between flights - will I make it? Cheers


    That's just enough time if everything is on the same reservation and everything goes smoothly.

    Can you go from Gate N9 to Gate S12 without going through security?


    Yes, you take the train from N to C, then walk from C to A or B, then take the Train to S.

    It's enough time if your flight from SFO is on-time.


  • MSP to DXB via SEA - need info regarding transit in SEA
    Feb 20, 2016
    I am flying from MSP to SEA on Alaska airlines to catch the flight to Dubai(Emirates). How do I go to South satellite from C,D or N gates. I read there is an underground train but somehow I couldn't find in terminal maps. Could you please explain in details how to transit between C,D or N to S gates without going thru security again.


    If you arrive in C or D you will walk to A or B and take the underground train from there - there will be signs pointing to S. If you arrive in N you will have to take a different underground train to C or D first.


    I, too, am scheduling a flight from DEN via SEA to Dubai. Is 1hr 56mins enough time to make that connection?


    Yes, that should be enough time.


  • Transit in SEA
    Feb 19, 2016
    My airline just rescheduled my flight. I now only have 2 hours to connect from a flight coming in from Japan (ANA) and transit to an Alaska Airlines to Fairbanks (separate booking). Is 2 hours sufficient to clear the international immigration, customs etc, and make it for check-in at the Alaska Airlines? I will be having 1 check-in bag.


    2 hours is not enough time when on two separate reservations with checked bags because you will have to go to the main terminal to reclaim your bag after going through customs and then re-check it at the Alaska check-in counter. If ANA changed your flight time maybe have them change it to fly in the day before. If Alaska changed it have them change you to a later flight to Fairbanks.

    I will be flying with Delta for a Vancouver to San Jose flight. I will have a 49 minutes layover at Seattle. Would 49 minutes be enough?


    Yes, that should be enough time if your first flight is on-time. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Vancouver.


  • Connection with Delta airline with checked luggage
    Mar 2, 2016
    I will have connected flight from Denver to SEATTLE/TACOMA, and then to Shanghai, China. I will likely have one checked luggage, and the lay over time in SEATTLE/TACOMA is 64 minutes. Is that time enough for the checked luggage to transit to the next flight, and for me to make the connection? Thank you.


    Yes, that should be enough time. All you have to do in Seattle is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


    Hi, am arriving at seatac from narita at 11.30 am and have a connecting flight with Alaska to Missoula, I believe that there are check in counters right after customs, is this correct ?

    Flying from San Francisco to Seattle on Delta with a 30 min. layover before the next flight to Amsterdam. Is that enough time? Will we have to do go customs or immigration in Seattle?


    There is no US Immigration or customs when leaving the US. All you have to do in Seattle is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time as long as your flight from SFO is on-time.


  • Is 75 minutes enough for connection and custom?
    Feb 8, 2016
    I and my infant son will fly from Beijing to Dallas with a stop at Seattle Airport with only 75 minutes connection. We will only have one baggage. I assume we will have to go through the custom. How hard is the transfer? Will we make it?


    That is not enough time. The minimum international to domestic connection time in Seattle is 90 minutes with 2 hours recommended.

    I have 50 minutes to change planes (w/carry-on) to an Alaska Int'l flight to Cabo, will I make? I'll have my boarding pass.


    Yes, that should be enough time. All gates in Seattle are connected inside security.


  • alaska airline to emirates air.
    Feb 9, 2016
    I am coming from Calgary to Seattle on Alaska Airlines to take Emirates airline to Dubai, the layover is 3 hours. Where can I find gate terminal connection details?


    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Calgary. You will arrive in concourse C, D, or N and depart from concourse S. If all tickets are on the same reservation you just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. An underground train connects S to the other concourses inside security.


    Thank you

    How can I get Alaska air arriving to emerite air departure


    Do you have checked bags? Are all your tickets on the same reservation or not? Where is your Alaska Airlines flight from? I can't answer your question without that information.


    No checked bag I coming from phoenix going to dubai


    Then you can just take the under ground train or trains from your arrival gate in C, D, or N to your departure gate in S.
