  • DELTA flight from ANC to SEA then SEA to Honolulu
    Apr 7, 2016
    Im traveling from ANC DELTA flight to Honolulu--But 1 stop at SEA airport that lands at 6:00AM(SEA) and my next DELTA flight leaves at 8:00AM. So probably one hour I guess, to find my next flight. This is my first time to SEA airport, please where should I go as soon as I land for my next DELTA flight? I don't need to go to a baggage claim, I only have a carry on bag. Which gate to the DELTA flight? n should I take a train? Is the train free? I'm worried, I don't know if I have that much time..


    According to your post you have 2 hours. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. Yes, some Delta gates require taking an underground train to get to. Yes, it is free. You have plenty of time.


  • Calgary to Sea to Southwest connection
    Apr 6, 2016
    We have an incoming flight from Calgary (air Canada Jazz) arriving at 8:29am...outbound with SW at 10:05. Will we have to get our luggage from the carousel...go through customs, and recheck baggage? Will we have enough time?


    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Calgary. However, you will have to go to the main terminal, claim your bags, take them to the Southwest counter, re-check them, and go through security. I really don't think that's enough time for that connection with checked baggage.


    Thank you for your thoughts on that issue. Yes, I got a little worried after I started reading some of the posts, just changed the flight for another hour later. Hopefully that will allow ample time.


  • Seattle-Mexico how much connection time?
    Apr 2, 2016
    Hi, I'm from Australia and will be flying Seattle to Mexico City. How long layover will I need at connecting airport so I don't miss the flight? Do you go through immigration to go to Mexico? And do you go through immigration return? Thanks for any advice!


    Assuming your flight into Seattle is from the US, then all you have to do in Seattle on your way to Mexico is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. There is no US Immigration when leaving the US. You will go through Mexican immigration in Mexico. On the return, when you land in Seattle you will 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. I recommend 2 hours minimum for such a connection.


  • Domestic travel Delta to Alaska Airlines
    Mar 13, 2016
    No checked bags, domestic flight, 2.5 hour layover, two separate reservations: enough time to transfer? What is procedure for security? How far away are gates likely to be? Hoping first trip for 16 year old daughter goes smoothly.


    If she prints out her Alaska boarding pass at home then all she has to do is walk from her arrival gate to her departure gate. All gates in Seattle are connected inside security. She should have plenty of time.


  • process for customs and connecting to domestic flight

    going from cdg to sea then on to hnl on delta. 1 1/2 hr layover. what is the process of going through customs then on to board flight to hnl. do they give boarding pass for the hnl portion when checking in at cdg?


    Yes, you should get both boarding passes at CDG. In Seattle you will arrive, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then go through security and to your departure gate. You should have just enough time.

    Yes, that should be enough time with carry on only. You will go through US Immigration and Customs and security and then take the underground trains to your departure concourse.

    On Your way to Vancouver you will go through Canadian Immigration and Customs when you get to Vancouver. There is no US Customs when exiting the US.

    Will be arriving Seattle (Horizon/Alaska) concourse C2. Will be departing from D concourse (Alaska Air. Will 30-40 min be enough time?


    Yes, that should be enough time as long as your first flight is on-time. Obviously it leaves no time to spare if it is delayed.


  • Flying from Seattle to San Francisco
    Nov 22, 2015
    Hi! I am an Australian citizen and currently residing in Vancouver, BC. I am planning to drive to Seattle and take a plane from Seattle to get to San Francisco. I have an ESTA. Is this plan possible? Will I run into problems with customs and immigration at any of these airports?


    There should be no issue. You won't have to go through immigration or customs at the airports because your flight is domestic. You will go through US Immigration at the road border on your way to Seattle. You will just have to show your passport to go through security at the airport.

    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.
