  • VICTORIA to Seattle to LAX
    Sep 7, 2016
    We are Canadian coming from Victoria BC to Seattle then connecting to LAX. We have 1.5hrs between arriving in Seattle and taking our connection flight to LAX> Can someone explain to me where I go to grab my luggage, then to customs, then drop off baggage, then go thru security. is this all in the same area, different floors etc.... I am worried if I don't know my way around we wont have time. There is 5 adults and 4 children in our group.


    You will arrive in the S Satellite, all of those procedures will take place in the basement of the S Satellite. If your flight to LAX also departs from the S Satellite you will then just go upstairs. If you depart from a different concourse you will take the underground train there after going through security. You should have enough time.


  • Return to US from Victoria, BC
    Sep 7, 2016
    My Delta flight from Victoria, BC arrives on a Monday at 5:05pm, and my connection (domestic flight) departs at 6:15pm. My luggage is a carry-on, and I am a US citizen. Will that be enough time for re-entry and connection to my flight? Any idea what the wait times are like at SEA-TAC immigration/customs? Thanks!


    With carry-ons only you should be OK.


  • Alaska Air connection time
    Sep 5, 2016
    Greetings, I'm looking at a flight from DEN to SEA with a 40 min time between the next Alaska Air flight to FAI. No checked luggage. Any chance I'll actually make the connecting flight? Thanks in advance!


    Yes, all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. If your flight from Denver is on-time you have a good chance of making it.


    As long as the gates are in the same terminal! ;-) Thanks.


    Seattle fortunately, only has one terminal.


    Perhaps I misspoke. Same concourse. ;-)

    Hi, I am french, I am flying from London to Juneau with BA (code share with alaska airlines). They gave me only 1h20min in Seattle... Can I make it?


    That is below the minimum recommended International to Domestic connection time in Seattle. It will be very difficult.


  • Delta transfer Victoria-Sea-Tac
    Sep 4, 2016
    Hi Flying on Delta from Victoria B.C. to San Jose Costa Rica with transfers at Sea-Tac and LAX. We have 1h 15 mins to make our connection at Sea-Tac mid afternoon on a Monday. Enough time as no pre-clearance in Victoria ?


    Yes, that should be just enough time if everything goes smoothly.


    Sep 3, 2016
    I will arrive SEA via BA at 1700 and leave on Alaska at 1900. Is that enough time? First time int'l flyer and nervous!!


    That's enough time if the first flight is on-time and both flights are on the same reservation.


    Thank you. So, baggage is checked through on same reservation. I do have to go through customs/immigration, right? The flight is on October 14th, a Friday..


    Yes, you have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, and go through security and to your departure gate.


  • Late arrival from Heathrow, connection to Anchorage
    Sep 2, 2016
    Hi, BA flight due to arrive 17.05 now delayed nearly 2 hours. Due to depart for Anchorage at 19.55. Is there enough time to collect luggage and do check in in time to get flight?


    You won't make that. However, there may be a later flight to Anchorage that you can be rebooked on. Alaska Airlines flies lots of flights between Seattle and Anchorage, especially during the summer.


  • 2 hrs and 40 minute connection time
    Sep 2, 2016
    Hi. I will be coming from Paris airport and got 2 hrs and 45 minutes connection time to get to my next flight to Lihue both via Delta air. Is it enough time?


    Yes, that is enough time.


  • minimum connecting time
    Sep 1, 2016
    I am arriving from Dubai on Emirates at 12h05 and connecting to Los angeles on AA at 14h40 - 2h35 min connecting time but have 2 separate tickets = is this enough time ?


    With checked bags that will be difficult but not impossible. Without checked bags you should be OK. Check in online for your AA flight online before leaving your origin.


  • Help - do I have enough time?
    Aug 31, 2016
    FLIGHT: Depart Anchorage at 13:30 / Arrive Seattle at 17:50 AS120 Depart Seattle at 19:10 / Arrive London Heathrow at 12:25 THU 01 SEP BA48


    If both flights are on the same reservation that is enough time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • Enough time for immigration
    Aug 31, 2016
    I am arriving in Seattle on Delta from Victoria BC and I only have one hour and ten mins to catch my Connection to New York. Is that enough time to go through customs and immigration?


    It's not impossible but it will be fairly difficult.


    So I do go through customs there then? Would you recommend that I change my flight? I'm starting to have anxiety over missing my plane.


    I arrive at 6:35 am. Wasn't sure if you needed the time. Thank you


    Yes, since Victoria doesn't have preclearance you will have to go through Immigration and Customs in Seattle. Due to the early morning arrival you should have enough time.


  • alaska connectionsto cancun
    Aug 23, 2016
    I will be arriving in Seattle from Portland on Alaska airlines and have only 40 minutes to make my Alaska connection to Cancun. Will I have enough time to catch my Cancun flight with only 40 minutes?


    That is enough time if the flight from Portland is on-time. Obviously it leaves no time to spare if it is not.

  • London (YXU) to Toronto (YYZ) to Seattle (SEA)
    Aug 20, 2016
    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.


  • Which terminal for flights to Canada (Kelowna)
    Aug 19, 2016
    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.
