Arriving 11:19 pm via Alaska Air from Honolulu connecting to American flight 6:21 an to Phila. What is easiest way to get there? Is there a shuttle? I will have carry-on that doesn’t have wheels and I have arthritis. Do they have golf cart transportation for handicapped?
Gate and terminal for Skywest flight 3338 to Omaha
Aloha. My Alaska flight lands at 9p terminal 1 and my SW flight departs 10:10p terminal 1. No checked bags. Can I make it? Do I need to go through security again?
I arrive into SAN at 845a on a Sunday. Taking Hawaiian at 1020a. If I check my luggage will i still have time to get to T2?
Yes! SAN is a small airport. You can walk (~ 10min) between terminals easily. Assuming domestic, security lines are ~ 20min for non holiday travel.
I’m flying out of terminal 1, i want to go to the united lounge in terminal 2 before my flight. Will i be able to go through security and go to the lounge?
Will be arriving SAN via SWA connecting to Vancouver via AirCanada with wheelchair passenger.
Reverse a week later via Westport Air to SWA.
I am traveling with a group; most will be flying out of T2 and me out of T1.

I'd like for us all to be able to hang in the Airspace lounge (in T2) beforehand, but I wasn't sure if I would be able to get into that terminal, or whether I could then stay airside to get to my T1 gates.

Will it be possible for us to hang out together in T2 before the flights?
There is no airside connection between T1 and T2.
Flying on SWA to San Diego and changing to Lufthansa with checked bag. How much time should I allow to get my bag from SWA and going through security in San Diego and make the gate for Lufthansa
I would want at least 2.5 hours.
Sounds like domestic to international. I would go for 2.5 - 3 hrs. Best to be safe for international flights.
Is it possible to walk from Terminal 1 to Terminal 2 and. roughly, how long does it take?
From exiting one terminal to entering the other is only like 5-10 minutes.
Is there a shuttle bus from terminal 1 to 2?
Yeah. There's a shuttle from terminal 1 to 2, but it takes less time to walk than to wait for the (very infrequent) shuttle. If you are mobility impaired in any way, you can contact airport staff and they will transport you.
I am flying on American into Terminal 2 ... Where do I meet my daughter flying in on alaska? .We are getting a ride from that terminal 1..I get in first so want to meet her at the best location .Thank you
Just walk over to the Terminal 1 baggage claim after you get your bags (if you have any).
