SFO Gate Connections DISCUSSION

Hello,

I will arrive at 8:40AM at SFO from Tokyo with United. Then, my departure time is at 10:35AM with Air Canada to Edmonton Canada. So, I will have very short connection of 1h 55m.
Will I have enough time for this connection? This is international flight connection

Thanks,
B
That should be enough time to get you thru SFO's international terminal.
I’m booked to arrive SFO Terminal 1 on QF73 at 12.25pm on 9 January. I will have checked oversized baggage (snow skis) to collect after clearing immigration/passport control. I then want to transfer immediately to a domestic flight to LAX. This domestic flight will be on a separate ticket so I assume I’ll have to make my way to a different terminal, re-check my bags, clear security etc. I’m wondering how much time should I allow between my 12.25pm ETA on the international flight and the forwarding domestic flight to LAX when my bags won’t be checked through? Would a 3pm flight to LAX be cutting it too fine?
If your domestic flight into SFO is on a partner carrier to QF73, then your bags will be checked thru, but since your port of entry into the US will be SFO, you will still need to get your bags, clear customs, then recheck in. 2.5 hours will be more than enough, as SFO isnt that busy at that time.
Hello...I am flying in from LAX UA, 11-1 on the 2pm flight, arriving at SFO at 323pm
I then need to be on flight 901 leaving SFO to LHR at 410pm departure. Will I have enough time to make this connection and will my luggage arrive with me in London? What terminals will I have to trot to. Mind you, I am not an athlete so running from gate to gate is not possible. Should I ask the airlines for a shuttle to get me to my plane on time once we land?
I have booked UA 748 arrived at 9.40pm at SFO and transfer to UA 1 at 10.40pm. Is it enough time to walk from domestic terminal to international terminal?
My friend and I are departing SFO. She is on United (terminal 3) and I am on Southwest (Terminal 1). Her flight is 1 1/2 hours before mine. I wanted to go with her to her gate post security and then head to my flight afterwards. Can I access terminal 1 from terminal 3 post security?
will I make it if I need to claim baggage at Hawaiian and re check in at United
high i'm flying UA872 from TPE to SFO arriving 6:35AM then catching UA233 from SFO to EWR, US citizen with checked bags. all one reservation. is that enough time? do i need to change my flight?
SFO>EWR departing 8:05AM
Arriving SFO on a Southwest flight and departing SFO on an Alaska flight. Not checking bags. Booked separately. Must I leave security before Alaska flight?
Hello ,
I will have United flights from Osaka (KIX) to Toronto (YYZ) via San. Fran (SFO).I understand I have to go through customs, claim and recheck baggages and go thru security in SFO .However I only will have 1h 56m layover time in SFO to get another United connection flight to ORD ,then layover there for 1hr 40m to take next United back to YYZ, May I know if I have enough time for all of that transition? Will I have to change terminals in SFO and ORD ? How about my checked baggages from SFO to YYZ via ORD ? Should I need to recheck my baggages at ORD again? Thank you :)
Change made today. Domestic UAL flight to LIH (Hawaii) is now departing from an International gate (99A). Does this mean leaving the secure area? If so, time values?
Itinerary is already active and today.
