  • Seattle to Denver via Inchon
    Jul 5, 2014

    I am flying into Seattle from Inchon South Korea. I booked a separate flight on United the same day. I arrive at 1:10pm and then my domestic flight is at 5:00pm. Is that enough time to get through immigration, recheck in, security etc? thanks

     

    You will arrive at the South Satellite of SEA, where you will go through immigration clearance, pick up checked luggage, continue to customs (taking 30-60 minutes), then re-check-in your bags and go through TSA security screening prior to proceeding to your connecting flight. ( If you have duty-free liquid items, put them in our checked luggage to prevent confiscation at the security checkpoint.) United uses both the North Satellite (gates N1-6) & Concourse A (gates A1-14.) A shuttle train runs between N & S gates, and between the South Satellite and the main terminal. As you bought 2 separate tickets, you may need 2 boarding passes. You have plenty of time.

    DEARS I HAVE THE BELOW FLIGHT: BA 049 28JUN LONDON SEATTLE 15:05 16:40 09:35 AS 2627 28JUN SEATTLE PORTLAND 19:15 20:02 00:50 DO I HAVE ENOUGH CONNECTION TIME IN SEATTLE FOR IMMIGRATION PROCEDURES

     

    Yes, that should be plenty of time to make your connection.

     

    JetBlue uses Terminal 5 /T5 (and may sometimes use T4); Air Berlin uses T8. International Arrivals need to go through passport check, pick up bags, go through customs clearance. Since you bought separate tickets, you will need to take your bags thereafter along to the connecting terminal, proceed to the Departures level & check it in with JetBlue; then proceed through security check on to your connecting gate. The 'Airline Terminals Train' on the upper level (follow signs) runs counter-clockwise between all terminals, on average every 10. minutes. After baggage re-check-in at T8 go through security check & on to your connecting gate. A 2-hr transfer time is advisable, but your afternoon arrival/departure may help you get to your connecting gate in time.

    Situation 1- Arrive at SEA from YVR via Alaska Airlines with 2 hours and 33 mins to connect to Delta flight to ICN. Not sure whether to have checked bags or not. Situation 2- Arrive at SEA from ICN via Delta with 1 hour and 15 mins to connect to another Delta flight to YVR. Is this enough time, do I have to claim checked bags and re-check them again? Situation 3- Arrive at SEA from ICN via Delta with 1 hour and 55 mins to connect to Alaska Airlines to YVR. Enough connecting time? Have to claim checked bags? Thanks

     

  • is one hour enough time to get from southwest to alaska air

    arriving on southwest air may 10th 1:40 pm .. flight to victoria bc on Alaska Air leaves at 2:20 . This gives an hour to get to AA flight, is this enough time? thanks

     

    That's only 40 minutes. It's possible if you have no checked bags, but impossible if you have checked bags. You will need to check in for your Alaska flight online before you depart on your first flight. If there's any delay you will miss your connection and Alaska Airlines will be of no obligation to rebook you.

     

    thanks so much for your help ZAP, and for the math correction! and for the reminder that AA has no obligation to rebook for me. be well

     

  • Need help finding connections

    Traveling on Alaska Airlines, arriving in Seattle at 4:05 pm, and planning to share a taxi with someone arriving on Southwest Airlines at 4:00 pm. Where meet after we claim our luggage to get a taxi?

     

    AT SEA, Alaska uses Satellite North, and Concourses C & D, while Southwest uses Concourse B - Concourses A, B, C & D are connected at post-security, enabling passengers to freely move around without having to leave the secured area. Satellite N (N gates) is linked to the main terminal's North station by continuously running underground loop trains. Best place to meet: Baggage claim level, Arrivals Hall.

     

  • 1 hour connection time in SEA: domestic Alaska to International Delta
    Sep 18, 2013

    Please help.Delta airlines is offering me a flight on October 27 from San Francisco to Osaka through SEA as follows: DL9122 (operated by Alaska) arrives in SEA at 11:16 a.m. DL183 to Osaka departs at 12:20 p.m. There is only 1h4' transit time from domestic (Alaska) to international (Delta). Do you think this is reasonable ? I will be able ti check my luggage directly to Osaka from San Francisco ? Please help. Cheers, CM

     

    Yes, you will be able to check your bags all the way though to Osaka. If your first flight is on-time you will be OK however you will have to hurry. You will arrive in C, D, or N and depart from S. You might want to look at United's non-stop SFO-Osaka flight if you're worried too much about the connection.

    I hear there is a shuttle from seatac to ferry piers (almost). Where do I find shuttle pickup at SEATAC? Is there cost? How much? is there a schedule that shuttle runs? Has anyone got info or comments about this service?

    need to return the retal car and am traveling with someone in a wheelchair plus bags. Should I drop them off then return car? Flying Alaska renting with Hertz

     

    Large accessible buses run between the new rental car facility & the terminals. Contact Hertz at 1-800-654-3131 if they have buses from their return lots. (When returning the rental car, take SR518 and follow signs for the Rental Car Facility).

     

  • Landmark to meet in the Concourse A area

    I'm meeting several people in concourse A and I'm just wondering where would be the easiest place for all of us to meet without getting lost. A landmark in concourse A to be specific Thanks

     

    On arrival at SEA the best place to meet is on the Main Terminal's baggage claim level, in the Arrivals Hall (with exit doors 00 to 26)at the information counter. I strongly suggest you open www.ifly.com/sea, click on "Terminal Map" under QUICK LINKS, and scroll down to the detailed text as connections within the terminal complex are quite complicated.
