Topic Discussion

Since I have a one-hour window to debark Alaska and board AA (separate reservations & no checked bags):
1) Which gates in T1-C do Alaska and American generally use?
2) How far is the longest possible distance (like, from gate1 to 23)?
3) How long before the AA flight can I do an online check-in?
4) Can I simply walk from my Alaska flight to the AA gate and board?

Thank you ever so much!
Maybe someone could answer a simpler question: since I'm arriving on Alaska then leaving on American, both in PDX T1-C - with just a carry-on - is one hour enough? Can I just walk from one plane to the next, or do I need to go elsewhere first?
CORRECTION, it's in ST LOUIS MO Lambert airport! Thanks for any responses!
Yes Janna, you can just walk from one plane to the next.
Thank you most kindly, ZAP! :-)
I am arriving so airlines and connecting to airchoice one. Do I have to go through tsa again. How do I get to terminal 2
You will have to take the shuttle to the other terminal and go through security again. It's possible that if you have a tight connection you could call Air Choice One and let them know and they can pick you up at your gate and take you on the tarmac to the air choice one plane.
What terminal is charter flights Swift Air located and can I check my bags in on curbside.
I'm 95% sure they use Terminal 1. They do not have curbside check-in.
Flying in on Delta(T1-A gate) connecting to Air Choice One(T1 - C gate). Will I have to go through security again? Or do I just walk up to C-gates?
Yes, you have to go through security again unless you are able to get Air Choice One to pick you up at your gate (which they are known to do if you have a tight connection).
My flight get in to Southwest at 3:40 PM and I depart from Air One at 4:30 - no checked bag - is that going to be enough time to make my connection?
That's barely enough time. Maybe call Air Choice One to tell them about your connection and see if they can pick you up at your Southwest gate and help you get over to their aircraft.
My flight is scheduled to arrive in STL at 7:40am and depart for LGA at 8:15am. Both Southwest. Late July on a Friday. Early bird check-in. 2 total travelers.
1. Is that enough time (I imagine it is since SW had it set up like that)?
2. What is the common practice for assuring that we get 2 seats together on the connecting flight to LGA?
3. Any recommendations on how to make the switch between planes as stress-free as possible?
Yes, that is enough time but doesn't leave much time to spare. You can board as soon as you get to your gate with Early Bird, however, there's no guarantee you can get seats together if you are delayed getting to your departure gate.
flying Delta, i check in online but I have luggage that needs to be check-in.
I arrive at the airport an hour prior to the flight time, is it possible that i make it?
Yes, that's just enough time.
I have a connection incoming and outgoing via Southwest. I am seeing that the departure gate for my connection is at gate E38, but don't see that indicated on the Terminal Map. Is it beyond E33?
I will be arriving in Terminal 1 (AirChoice One) and departing Terminal 2 (Southwest). How long does it take to get between terminals? I'm arriving at 2:15 and have a 3:00 flight.
With checked bags that's not reasonably enough time. Without checked bags you can probably only make it if Air Choice One can drive you to your departure gate (which they sometimes do for tight connections).
Thank you!
I have a similar issue. However, my Air Choice flight arrives at 2:20 p.m. and my departing flight with Southwest is at 3:45. Is this enough time to make the departing flight?
I have never flown CapeAir. Is it generally on-time (from Kirksville)? If I need to make a connection from CapeAir (is it in Terminal 1?) to Southwest (Terminal 2) and I have only a roller carry-on and a big purse - is 40 minutes enough time? (CapeAir Scheduled arrive 1:20; SW departure 2:00 p.m.)
Cape Air does a pretty good job being on-time. They will take you directly to your Southwest gate so you can make your connection if it is on-time.
