He is landing at terminal 3, I am landing at terminal 1; we are staying in LV. Is there a best place to meet? Thanks!
There's no good central place to meet if you have checked bags.
After I collect my luggage from Southwest and need to go where Virgin Atlantic flys out from, where is the shuttle bus for that terminal?
It's just outside the baggage claim area on that lower level roadway that the shuttles use.
Flying into 3 at midnight.

Need to get bags and then go to T1 for check-in, then proceed back to D gates for next flight.

Is this doable w/in 1 hour and 10 minutes?
I think that will be really difficult if not impossible.
I'm traveling from the UK to T3 and have another flight to catch from T1, I have four hours to do this. It's my first time traveling on my own so I'm hoping you can tell me what I need to do when I get off the plane in T3. Thanks
You will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, and go through US Customs then take your bags with you on the shuttle bus to T1, check them with your second airline, and go through security.
Leaving on Hawaiian airline
I believe possibly from D gate
You'll want to go to Terminal 3.
Does Terminal 3 have security check in there or at D gates?
The Security checkpoint is within Terminal 3.
Direct from LAS customer service.
"Moving between gates and the two terminals is easy and does not require you to exit security. Gates are in alphabetical order (A-B-C-D-E) and Southwest generally uses the C Gates and occasionally a couple gates at B. Terminal 3 is also known as E Gates.

From B Gates, locate the walkway toward C Gates (do not go toward Baggage Claim).
This walk is about 5 minutes depending on how fast you walk.
You will pass a security checkpoint entering the C Gates, keep walking forward toward Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf.
Turn to your left and go up the short escalator.
Walk toward Baggage Claim but do not go down the escalator.
Turn to your right and go past the tram for the C Gates (Green Line).
The next set of trams is the Blue Line for the D Gates (this is about a 90 second ride).
Exit the tram and enter the rotunda, turn to the left and take the Red Line tram to Terminal 3/E Gates (this is about a 30 second ride).
Exit the tram and locate the elevator on either side of the escalators.
Take the elevator to the second floor and you will be in the middle of Terminal 3. Just locate your gate from there!

From C Gates you can take the Green Line or walk. If you arrive at gates 1 – 22 I would take the tram. If you arrive at gates 23 – 25 I would walk, either way follow signs toward Baggage Claim but do not go down the escalator.

Thank you. I have thought that this was was possible but have never needed to do it myself, but it's good to hear from an official source that it is possible. Now only if they would properly sign the path!
I'm fling in on Southwest from Wichita KS then flying back out to Bellingham on Allegiant with 2 checked bags how much connecting time between flights do I need is 1.5 hours enough? Do I have to go back through security I'm assuming I do with checked on baggage
Yes, you will have to claim your bags, re-check them with Allegiant, and go back through security. 1.5 hours is barely enough time.
thank you I double checked have 2 hours and a couple of minutes
I'm flying in from Wichita KS on Southwest and then flying out on Allegiant to Bellingham How much time is needed for connections and do I have to go through security again 2 checked in bags? Thank you
I have a flight on Southwest arriving from Kansas City at 6:40 a.m. Would that give me enough time to connect with carry on bag only to a Hawaiian Airlines flight to HNL at 8:35 a.m.? I'm trying to decide if I need to arrive the night before, but I'd really like to avoid the cost of a hotel room. Thanks so much!
That is possible if everything goes smoothly.
Whew! Thank you! I'm going to give it a try, thanks to you! I checked Southwest flight history and their early morning non-stop usually arrives early.
If flying out of D gate do I enter the airport from terminal 1 or 3
Confused on drop off for shuttle
It depends what airline you're flying.
