Hi I arrive from Seattle at 14.09 next Friday with Delta (I understand this is Gate D T1) and leave at 15.50 with Virgin Atlantic (gate E t3?) - do I need to go through security and if this enough time? Currently deciding between checked bag and not..
Can anyone please advise - my son is travelling alone (he’s 21 and a nervepus flyer )
He’s arriving at LAS at 2pm T3 gate D frontier airline
Needs to claim bags , and re-check for Norwegian by 3.30pm
How far is gate D to E ?
Do baggage come quickly ?
will he have to re-do security ?
Thanks any tips helpful
Luckily, the baggage claim for Frontier is just 1 level below where you have to check in for Norwegian. He will have to go through security again after he re-checks his bags with Norwegian. He has just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Arriving flight 536 from DFW @10:19am, departing LAS @10:49am. Both on same reservation through American, carry-on bag only. Is that enough time?
Yes, that is enough time if the first flight is on-time. You just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Can I get from D gates to E gates without exiting and re-entering through security?
Yes, you can.
We arrive at 6:35am on Hawaiian Air - gate D35 in Terminal 3, and are supposed to leave at 7:30 am on Allegiant Air (I can't find the info on this but everything I see looks like it will be Terminal 1 - A Gates... fastest possible route?
If you have checked bags you have no chance. With no checked bags you absolutely have to check in for your Allegiant flight online, then take the train towards the Terminal 1 baggage claim but don't head towards the security exit and baggage claim when you arrive in Terminal 1, instead follow the signs for Concourse A and RUN. I wouldn't try this if I were you.
ok, no checked bags - but we will try to make a change. Thanks for the info!
What level is the train on? Are there signs when we get off the plane, and if so, what wording?
The train departs concourse D underground. The signs will be towards Terminal 1 baggage claim or American Airlines baggage claim. It's literally the only way out of Concourse D.
We made it! Thanks for your help !
We are considering something similar... did you find it manageable?
I probably wouldn't plan that again without having an hour and a half at least between landing and taking off. We hit the tram right on time and literally ran the rest of the way. But proved it could be done! No checked bags though.
I,m arriving to LAS from Midway (Chicago) with Southwest at 10.25 AM and my Southwest connection flight to San Diego departs at 11:10 AM.. It,s a short time, Do I need to go through security?
No, you do not have to go through security again. Just go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Hi I’ll be arriving tonight flying in with Southwest and I need to get to where Hawaiian Airlines Gate is at. It’s my husband’s first time to America and I don’t want him to get lost. Any tips where I get meet him at his gate?
I arrive on a Hawaiian flight (D gates). I will have no checked baggage and will be seated towards the front of the aircraft. Is a 60 minutes layover enough to make it to a Southwest flight (C or B gate) without wildly sprinting through the airport? As I understand it, we do NOT have to go through security again, correct? Thank you!
You will probably still have to wildly sprint through the airport, but it is possible. You have to take the train that is marked for the baggage claim for American and Delta, but instead of exiting security, turn around and find signs that point for the C gates.
Is it possible to get from the gate area in concourse A to concourse D without exiting security?
Yes, but the route is not well marked. You have to walk towards the C gates and then there will be a train to the D gates near the security checkpoint near C.
I am arriving on a Virgin flight arriving at 6 PM from LA and connecting to a Southwest flight to Phoenix at 750 PM with no check bag. How do I make the connection and do I have to go through security. Please let me know, Thanks
It is possible to go from Terminal 3 through the D gates to Terminal 1 and then to your southwest departure gate using the trains all inside security, but it's somewhat convoluted. That is enough time though without checked bags if everything goes smoothly.
