  • Enough time?
    Oct 27, 2015
    Arriving sea 13.11 with dl2044 from lax . . . Change to dl142 to ams etd 14.23. Doable? Which gates?


    You will arrive in A or S and depart from S. All gates in Seattle are connected inside security. You should have enough time if your flight from LAX is on-time.

    I am arriving from Vancouver on Air Canada at 12:16 on 21st Oct. I have a connecting flight to Frankfurt at 13:40 same day. Do I have to go through immigration, do I have to collect my bag, do I have enough time to transfer, what terminal do I depart from?


    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Vancouver. All you have to do is take the underground train from your arrival gate in Concourse A to your departure gate in the S Satellite. You do not have to go through security.

    I am a canadian travelling alaska from hawaii to canada via seattle. Is 40 min enough connection time? Will i need to collect my luggage? Tnx!


    Yes, that should be enough time if your first flight is on-time. All you have to do in Seattle is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. If your flight is late and you miss your connection Alaska has very frequent flights from Seattle to Vancouver.


  • What to do in layover time
    Dec 10, 2014
    Hi, I have 5hour layover at SEA before i take emirates to dubai. I will be fying from SLC in Alaska airlines. What is the best way I can spend my time. Can i leave the airport after checking my baggage and go sight seeing at seattle for about 3 hours.


    The Emirates check-in counter will probably not open until about 3 hours before your flight, so you will not be able to check your bags when you arrive. It takes 45 minutes each way to get from the airport to any sights you would want to see, so you would have very little time to see anything.


    Thanks ZAP. That was useful.


  • Underground tram
    Nov 5, 2014
    I am very claustrophobic and will be flying from NY to Seattle in January. I see that I may need to use an underground tram to get to main terminal. Are there any other options? Thank you.


    There are no other options if you arrive in the S or N Satellite. You'll have to suck it up and deal with it if you arrive at one of those concourses. Your only way to avoid it is to fly an airline that does not use those concourses, the airlines that don't use N or S are American, JetBlue, Southwest, Sun Country, United, US Airways, and Virgin America. All of those would at least offer a single connection itinerary between NY and Seattle and American, JetBlue and United offer non-stops.


    Thanks very much. I tried to find a phone number for the airport related to "medical" or "disability" but no luck. I will check out the airlines you suggest.

  • transfer from Alaska Air to Korean Airlines Departure area
    Oct 28, 2014
    Good day. I will be arriving from Anchorage, AK via Alaska Air on Nov. 2 5 a.m. and I have flight via Korean Air on Nov. 2 12:p.m. Can you help me to locate Korean Air departure area. Thanx


    The Korean flight will leave from the S Satellite. You will arrive at the C or D concourse or N Satellite. If you purchased separate tickets and have checked baggage you will have to go to the main terminal to claim your bags and then take them to the Korean check-in counter.
