Hi, my family and I will be arriving from Sydney Australia and will be in SFO for 4 hour stopover before catching another flight (UA) to Orlando Florida. We are hoping to pop for a quick burger at In and Out at Millbrae as my husband has never tried this before. Will 4 hours be enough? Would we have to pick up our luggage and take it with us as exit or would it automatically be loaded onto the connecting flight? If we have to pick up our luggage and check in again with UA, would it be worth putting the luggage in storage. What is the process of leaving SFO and coming back? Thanks! :)
You have to claim your bags to take them through US Customs, you can then immediately re-check them, Then if you have at least 2.5 hours before your next flight, you could probably take a taxi to In N Out, eat and take an Uber or Lyft back to SFO. You'll obviously have to go through security again when you return so you'll want to be back at SFO at least 60 minutes before your flight to Orlando, preferably a bit more.
Thank you! :)
Is there time to see any part of San Francisco during a 5 hour layover? If so, what would you recommend? If not, what would you recommend at the airport?

I just posted a question about flying from Sydney to Newark via SFO. I should have mentioned that I am flying United all the way. Do I have to change terminals? I have a 3 hour 40 minute layover. Is that enough time after clearing customs to meet up at the airport with a friend who lives in San Francisco?
I am flying on United from Sydney, arriving in San Francisco at 7:10 a.m.for a flight to Newark that leaves at 10:50. Is it possible to clear customs before boarding in Sydney, and if not, would there be enough time after clearing in SFO to meet a local friend (at the airport) before the 10:50 flight? I assume we'd have to exit the secured area.
I am traveling from Toronto canada to Sydney via San fransesco with 1:30 layover same reservation air canada then United airlines
Is that enough
Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto.
I'm flying in from Reno (arriving 12:45AM) for a connecting flight to Macau (departing 1:30PM). I'm with UA for the whole itinerary. My layover is 45 min if there are no delays. Is this enough time to make the connection?
Yes, that is enough time if the first flight is on-time, all you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
my family of 4 is traveling from ICN to SFO then from SFO to MCO using american airline. they will have 1 child and 1 elder. they are not US citizen, would 1 hour and 25 minutes enough time to change plane? if not, then what should i do?
American Airlines does not operate either of those routes. Please double check your reservation. 1 hr 25 minutes is not enough time for an International to Domestic connection in San Francisco. You need to contact whoever you booked that reservation through and tell them that it is unacceptable.
I have a layover in sfo for 51 min. My flight is booked all through United. Do I need to pass through customs in SFO or do I just have to walk to my departure gate? Assuming that I pass through customs at LAX. Do I have enough time as well?
There is no US Customs when leaving the US. All you have to do in SFO is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. That is enough time.
I have a 45 minute layover to change planes going from LAX to Honolulu. Is this enough time?
What airlines are you flying? Are both flights on the same reservation? Where are you flying into LAX from? You provided very little information with which to answer your question.
