Is there a Saturday afternoon mass at SFO
Not at SFO Airport, but you can search for churches nearby if your flight time allows


With the increase in travelling, comes the utter inconvenience of luggage. When there really is no place or time to store luggage, travellers are burdened with either lugging their bags around while their precious vacation time flies by, or sacrificing that time for convenience. Think about it: how many times have you gone to the airport early because that window of time was just inconvenient enough, and you had nowhere to store your bags?

Luckily, there is a solution for this growing and cumbersome problem. I introduce to you: qulli™, the first-ever luggage-handling service providing a complete storage and delivery solution in the Bay Area. They take care of the luggage so you have the freedom to go where you want, when you want.

The way it works is simple: a qulli™ Captain picks up the luggage at a specified time from anywhere in the Bay Area. Travelers are free to enjoy the last remaining hours of their trip while their luggage is safely and securely stored. When it’s time, the qulli™ Captain meets the traveler at the airport and delivers their luggage. The minimal storage fee is a small price to pay for convenience and increased time exploring and enjoying the beautiful and scenic city of San Francisco. Try it out.
1 1/2 hr layover terminal 3 will I have time to go for a smome and get back thru the line to my terminal?
If the first flight is domestic that is just enough time to leave security and go outside, have a smoke, and go back through security.

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! :)
Hi Lesli,

Try qulli for your luggage. It may help you with your luggage situation and give you more time to enjoy San Fran.

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.
