I'm arriving Alaska Airlines concourse B i guess and my partner will arrive 1 hour later on Southwest concourse D. How do I pickup my baggage and get to meet her

Asked by Scott - Sat, 7 January

When you arrive on Alaska Airlines in concourse B, you can pick up your baggage from the baggage claim area, which is located on the lower level of the terminal. After collecting your luggage, you can then proceed to the airport's terminal connector, which is a walkway that connects concourse B to the other concourses.

Once you reach the connector, you should look for the signs that lead you to the D Gates. You can also ask one of the airport's customer service representative, they'll be able to guide you to the right direction.

When you reach the D gates, you can then wait in the designated waiting area for your partner to arrive. Please note that you might not be able to go inside the security checkpoint in the concourse D because you need to pass through security screening again if you want to go in that area. However, you can wait outside the security area, or you can ask your partner to call or text you when they are ready to be picked up.

It's also worth noting that LAS airport is a relatively small airport so the distance between terminals should not be long. It should take you no more than 15-20 minutes to walk to the connector.

Does flying first class offer a tsa priority line?

Asked by Sherry - Fri, 6 January

Flying first class on a commercial airline does not automatically entitle you to use the TSA PreCheck priority line at McCarran International Airport (LAS) or any other airport. TSA PreCheck is a separate program that allows eligible passengers to undergo expedited security screening at participating airports.

To be eligible for TSA PreCheck, you must enroll in the program and pay a fee. To enroll, you will need to complete an online application and schedule an in-person appointment to provide biographic and biometric information. If you are approved for TSA PreCheck, you will receive a Known Traveler Number (KTN) that you can use when booking flights. When you fly, you will be able to use the TSA PreCheck lane at participating airports by providing your KTN or by using a boarding pass that displays the TSA PreCheck logo.

If you are not enrolled in TSA PreCheck, you will need to use the regular security lanes at the airport. Some credit card companies and other loyalty programs offer benefits such as TSA PreCheck enrollment fee credits or priority security lane access as part of their programs, but these benefits are not automatically provided with first class travel.

Need help tracking down a missing cell phone lost Friday night (10/1) possibly on one of the transit buses or at the rental car center. Is there someone I could talk to for help? Doesn't appear to have been turned in at the rental car counter at this time.

Asked by Robert McDonald - Tue, 5 October

Just in case someone returned it at the airport, I suggest submitting a lost item report on our website: Make sure to add as many details as possible.  For items lost in public areas of Rent A Car Center, including the lobby and curbs, call 702.261.6001. For items lost in shuttle buses, call 702.261.6630. And for items left in rental cars or the garage, contact the rental car agency.

How do I pick a passenger up who is flying on Delta at McCarran Airport?

Asked by Elizabeth Stewart - Mon, 4 October

Delta Airlines uses Terminal 1. You can pick up a passenger on Level 1 at baggage claim area, across from the across the pedestrian bridge of the parking garage. This area is patrolled so you will need to be ready to pick up your passenger. Another option is to use Short Term Parking lot.  

If I have a 6 hour layover and arriving and departing on southwest do I need to go through security again?

Asked by Helen - Fri, 1 October

No, as long as you don't leave the secure side you do not need to re-enter security. Both flights will be out of the C Concourse.

From Terminal 1 Long Term parking, what level do we need to user for check in 1, 3. 4, 5, OR 6?

Asked by Frankie - Mon, 20 September

I don't understand. If you are making a connection flight, why would you be going to Long Term parking? It's not too far of a walk from C3 to B19, but its a tight time frame so you should move fast. You can also refer to our website for more maps.
