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

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.
I found a flight from Kailua KOA to SAN Diego with a 49 minute layover in SFO.
Is that enough time?
Airline is United.
Dear team,

My Delta flight from Denver is to arrive at SFO at 9:39 am. The next flight is an international flight to Bangkok at 12:15 pm by United Airline.

Is two and a half hours connecting time enough?

The trip is next month. And would it help (or is it possible) if I ask the ticket agent to combine the two legs by two different airlines into one itinerary so that my bags can be checked through?

Your answer would be much appreciated. Thank you.

I will be arriving in SFO from Japan on American Airlines at 10:30 am. I will need to collect baggage and clear customs, would I be allowing enough time to do this and get to the SW terminal for a 1:00 pm departure?
