    Flying from San Jose, CA to Seattle and going on to Amsterdam. I have 45 minutes between connecting flight. Will I make the flight?


    If both flights are on the same reservation that is just enough time if the flight from San Jose is on-time.


  • How to get from S gates to A gates
    Nov 8, 2016
    Hi there! I am flying in on Hawaiian which always arrives into S11 but need to make my way over to the A gates for a Delta connection. I know I have to take the rail but don't know what stops to get on or off at. Can someone please help me! Thank you!


    There are only three stops, S, A, and B. Do you have checked bags?


    No, only carry-ons!


    Then yeah, that's all you have to do. Check in for your Delta flight online before you leave Hawaii.


  • FRA - SEA - YYC

    HI, I'm fying from Frankfurt to Calgary over Seattle, all flights on one ticket. 2.20h layover in SEA should be enough. Do I need to collect my luggage and go thru US customs and then recheck it again for the flight to YYC? Thx.


    Yes, you will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US customs. If your flight to Calgary is on the same reservation and your bags are tagged to YYC, then you can immediately re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then go through security and to your departure gate. You have enough time if everything goes smoothly.


  • Making a connecting flight

    Alaska flight arrives at concourse C and my connecting flight leaves 1 hr later from the North satellite gate. Must I take a train or can I walk and will I have enough time? Thanks


    You have to take the train. You have enough time if the first flight is anywhere close to on-time.


  • San Jose to Seattle to London
    Nov 5, 2016
    Flying fron San Jose, Ca to Seattle on Alaska Air then from Seattle to Heatheow on British Air. All booked on one ticket. Alaska Air flight arrives Seattle at 5:55pm; British Air flight leaves at 7:10pm. Do I have to change terminals in Seattle? Is there enough time to catch the BA flight?


    Yes, that is enough time. Seattle only has one terminal. You just have to take the underground trains from your arrival gate on C, D, or N to your departure gate on S.


  • Connection time from Vancouver Canada

    Looking into a flight from Vancouver Canada to San Fransisco with a 45 minute connection in Seattle, is this enough tiem to connect? Will I need to clear immigration/customs in seattle?


    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Vancouver. if both flights are on the same reservation you just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate in Seattle. You should have enough time.


  • 30 min connecting time

    Hello, I am flying by Delta from MSP Minneapolis to SEA, but only have 30 minutes for transit then DELTA from SEA to Narita airport in Japan. I am wondering if the connecting time is too short? Thank you for your time and consideration


    It's enough time if the flight from MSP is on-time. It obviously leaves no time to spare.

    i shall be flying from atlanta to seattle ,taking a connecting flight to vancouver on Alaskan airlines.I have 80 minutes.wil i be able to make the connection????? Do i have to collect my checked baggae in SEA and recheck again ??????????


    Are both tickets on the same reservation or two separate reservations? Are both flights on Alaska? If so then all you have to do in Seattle is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    I am flying into Seattle on Skywest and departing for Singapore on Delta. I have 39 minutes to make connection and will need a wheelchair. Ist hat enough time to connect and get luggage on?


    Is your flight into Seattle an Alaska Airlines flight number or Delta flight number? It's likely barely enough time if everything goes perfectly.

    I am flying by Alaska airlines to Seattle....the layover for the next connecting international flight (Emirates) is only 1 hr 15 min....Will this time be sufficient to board the next flight...Will there be security check again....Thanku...


    If both flights are on the same reservation and the Alaska flight is domestic then all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate, no additional security needed. You have enough time.


    Thanku so much for a quick reply.....

    I have a flight from vancouver to seattle on Alaska air, then connecting to a flight to Cancun. I have 1 hr and 10 minutes to get to the next flight. will I have enough time and will i have to go through immigration and customs for this change?


    Yes, that is plenty of time. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Vancouver. All you have to do in Seattle is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • Alaska Hawaiii to Seattle then BA to Heathrow
    Oct 24, 2016
    Hi, Arriving from Hawaii on Alaska then have 90 minutes before scheduled BA flights to Heathrow, Do my bags get routed to BA and I just have hand luggage or do I need to pick them up. Concerned by the small amount of time, think I have Concourse C then fly out of South Satellite but process a little unclear, thanks


    Its a single reservation by the way. I'vde read some threads and possibly arrive then go straight to south satellite but a little worried


    Yes, all you have to do in Seattle is take the underground train tot he South Satellite and board your BA flight. You don't have to do anything with your checked bags. There is no US Customs when leaving the US.

    Hi Guys, I am travelling to NY via Seattle from Anchorage next August. Alaska Air/American Air is suggesting i land at 22:50 then depart at 23:50. I don't need to collect my bags just change gates. In your experience do you think this is doable? I am not sure on flights from Alaska if they are notorious for being delayed? Flight priced have increased in the last month so i am wanting to book in asap. Thanks so much.


    Yes, that should be very possible. Alaska has a fairly good on-time reputation.

    What is the fastest way from South West North terminal to Icelandair South terminal


    Those are concourses, not terminals. Underground trains connect all gates inside security, however, if you have checked bags you will have to go to the main terminal to claim them from Southwest and then re-check them with Icelandair.
