  • Connecting from PDX-SEA-FRA
    Jun 5, 2015

    I have a flight from PDX and arrives at SEA at 12:17p and have a connecting flight to FRA at 1:40p. Will I be able to make it to this flight no problem? Should I re check in my baggage or I don't have to worry about my baggage?

     

    oh and also, the flight from PDX-SEA is operated by Alaska and from SEA-FRA is operated by Lufthansa. If I miss this flight do they offer me a next available flight or am I on my own? I booked my flight ticket on online booking site.

    Husband & I flying from SMF to SEA on Alaska Air arriving at 9:14am. Connecting Horizon flight to PSC departs at 10 am. Will 45 min be enough time? He will have wheelchair assist. Will connecting gates be in same satellite?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time if your first flight is on-time. Alaska uses 3 different concourses at SEA so it's unsure whether flights will be in the same concourse.

    Hi - I am travelling from Dublin to Vancouver through Frankfurt and Seattle. Do I have to clear US immigration in Seattle even though my final destination is not the USA, or is there some transfer area in the airport for folks with onwards flights to Canada ?

     

    Yes, in Seattle you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the transfer desk, go through security, and go to your departure gate. If you're an Irish citizen be sure to complete ESTA before your trip.

    How do u get from n1 to concourse c for Alaska via horizon, is it same levels?

     

    Seattle only has one departure "level" but to get from N to C you need to take an underground train, which is by nature, underground.

    My wife is traveling from PDX to SEA. the flight arrives at 2:15 PM to SEA. She has to collect the baggage and recheck in with Emirates. The Emirate Flight to DXB departs at 5:40 PM. I assume she has to collect her baggage from Main Terminal. Then she will have to checkin at Emirates. Then take train to S terminal. I have couple of questions a. will there be enough time for getting the baggage and recheckin at Emirates and go to S terminal? b. what's the best way to navigate from C concourse to Main and then Main to S? - M

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. There are signs showing how to go everywhere she needs to go. You can just walk from C to the baggage claim. There is an underground train to S.

    hi, im flying London-Fairbanks. changing at kef and Seattle.My Seattle change over is 2hours 15minutes where im then getting a Alaska airline flight to Fairbanks. im wanting to know if this is enough time for my connecting flight?what will I have to do when I get to seattle?ive been told I may need get my boarding pass for the last part of the flight at the airport(seattle to Fairbanks) is there a desk when I get off my flight from Iceland? thanks

     

    Did you purchase your tickets together or separately? Will you have checked bags? You can get your Alaska Airlines boarding pass online before you leave London.

     

    Yeah all in one ticket.yes will have a checked bag.what will I have to do when get to Seattle?i have 2 hours 15mins,is this enough time?

     

    After arriving in Seattle's S Satellite you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bag at the re-check desk, then go through security and take the underground train to your departure concourse. Alaska Airlines uses concourses C, D, and N.

     

    Thank you! Does this all happen in a connecting flight area within the airport-you don't need go out the airport to go back in?how long does the train take?have I enough time-the airline says I do but am a bit worried Thanks

     

    If I have purchased all flights on one itinerary will the checked bag go from London to Fairbanks-and just recheck it in Seattle?

     

    Yes, it will be tagged to Fairbanks in London, in Seattle you will just have to claim it in order to go through US Customs, then re-check it right after. All of this stuff happens in the basement of the S Satellite. You will not have to go to the main terminal building. Getting from the S Satellite to your Alaska Airlines gate will probably take somewhere between 5 and 15 minutes.

     

    Thanks.so 2hours 15 minutes be enough time?

     

    Yes, it should be

     

  • Time to go through immigration and customs?

    Flying CDG to Redmond OR, through SEA. Will a 2 hour 28 min connection in SEA be enough time to deplane in International terminal, go through immigration and customs, and make the domestic flight on Alaska Airlines to Redmond?

     

    Seattle does not have an International Terminal. If all your tickets were purchased on one reservation you will arrive in the S Satellite, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the transfer desk, then go through security and to your departure gate in the C, D or N concourse. They are all connected inside security by the Underground trains. You should have enough time if all your tickets were purchased on one reservation.

    I'm flying Delta- arriving at B6 and think I depart from S2 I have a 36 minute lag between flights- though it is a pair by Delta. Anyone have an idea how long to get between the two? I'll have my luggage with me.

     

    It's possible, It will take you maybe 10 minutes to get from B to S. It leaves no time to spare for the first flight to be delayed.

    I have a flight from PDX to SEA landing at 3.15pm, and a connecting flight to DXB at 5.40pm. I'm checking in the bags in PDX all the way to DXB, but need to collect boarding passes for my SEA-DXB flight at the Emirates departure gates. What is the quickest way to get from Alaska Horizon Concourse C to the Emirates departure gate (Gate S) in SeaTac? I'm hoping I'll have enough time to collect boarding passes and get through security.

     

    Walk to the A or B concourse and then take the underground train to S. There should be signs showing the fastest way to S when you arrive.

     

  • SEA to CDG 40 min layover?

    We fly from GEG (Spokane) to SEA and have 39 minutes to get from a SkyWest (booked through Delta) flight to the Delta flight to Paris. Are we going to arrive at the south satellite and catch our departure to paris there, too? Any chance our luggage will make the connection?

     

    Yes, if the first flight is on-time you should be OK. Delta and Delta Connection use gates in A and S. They are connected inside security by an underground train.

     

    Thank you. And the luggage? Any prediction?

    I'm flying back to LAX from HKG through Seattle. I fly Delta to seattle and then fly on Alaska Airlines through to LAX. Will 1hr45min be enough time to make the connecting flight? The flight is booked through one website.

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. Your bags should be tagged through to LAX, so once you clear customs you can just re-check your bags at the transfer desk, go through security, and take the underground trains to your departure gate.

    Hi there, I'm flying Alaska Airlines from YVR-SEA then on to Orlando (also on Alaska). Is one hour between the SEA and MCO flights enough time to make the connection? I don't have any gate information to know how far apart they are. Will my bags be checked right through or do I have to get them in between flights? Thanks in advance for your help.

     

    You will 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. Alaska uses gates in the C, D, and N concourses. They are all connected inside security. N is connected to C and D by an underground train.

    Yes, that should be enough time. You can re-check your baggage at the re-check desk right after customs, then go through security and straight to your departure gate.

    HI there, I am flying from Vancouver, BC to Seattle to Amsterdam via Delta Airlines. These are all paid together as one ticket. How will the connection be through Seattle? Will I have to get my luggage and/or clear customs? Thanks!

     

    You will 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. All gates in Seattle are connected inside security.

    I am traveling compass dba delta from San Diego to Seattle with only 65 minutes layover time to delta Hong Kong. Do I have enough time for connecting flight? Do I have to claim baggage or go through custom in Seattle?

     

    You do not go through US Customs when leaving the US. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. All gates at SEA are connected inside security. You have enough time if your first flight is on-time.
