Hi guys

Thinking about booking flight connecting through SFO, ASA 1713 arrives at 0912, UAL888 leaves at 1045. Is this enough time? I will have no checked bags.

btw, another option i am looking at is UAL2093 from DFW to SFO (0930), then connecting to PEK. This has shorter connection time, but will be arriving at terminal 3.

Still will be on separate ticket, since somehow when I book DFW-PEK directly, UAL wants to charge me 2.5 times more than doing separately.
With no checked bags you will be able to walk directly from your arrival gate to your departure gate if both flights are on United. 1 hr 15 is plenty of time to do that. Coming from Alaska Airlines you'll have to change terminals and go through security.
Hi, we arrive at SFO from Dulles at 2009 and have an onward flight to Auckland leaving at 2140. Is this enough time for us to make the transfer? Thanks a lot
If both flights are on the same reservation that is enough time.
We are arriving SFO on Alaska from SAN, leaving international BA to London. Have been told we will need to collect our luggage from baggage and transfer ourselves. What is the best way to move from baggage claim terminal 1 to International Terminal departure?
Alaska doesn't use Terminal 1. They use Terminal 2 and the International Terminal. If you need to change terminals, take the AirTrain.
Isn’t the Air Train inside the terminals. I need to gather my luggage from Terminal 2/Alaska and the recheck into BA in the international terminal. Looking at what kind of transportation outside the terminal that takes you to the other terminals?
Guess I do not understand if Air Train in indies the secured area of the terminal only or does it run outside around the airport as well, we could then collect our luggage and use it to move to the International terminal to check in?
The airtrain in SFO ONLY runs outside security.
Thank you for your help
I will arrive from Mexico (AeroMexico) at 9.25 pm at SFO International Terminal. I have a connection to Seoul (Korean Air) from same terminal at 00.10 am next day (2hrs 40 mins) - is this enough time? I'm not a US Citizen so have to clear immigration. Thanks!
Yes, that should be enough time. Everyone has to clear US Immigration for the transfer, even US citizens.
I have a flight arriving from Mexico with Aeromexico at 21 30, and a connecting one towards Seoul (Asiana) at 23 30. ARe 2 hours enough to make the connection - do I have to go through customs/security and would i need to check out and check in my luggage?
this is at SFO to confirm
Yes, you have to do all that stuff. That is barely possible if everything goes perfectly.

I will be travelling from Melbourne AUS to SFO via Air New Zealand in late May.

I have yet to purchase an additional flight to Vancouver, on which I hope to travel on on the same day as arriving in SFO.

My flight from Auckland arrives at SFO at 12:55pm and the flight I am looking at Air Canada AC569 departing SFO which initially had a later departure time but now departs at 16:05 which I feel might be pushing it with time..

Would this be allowing More than enough time to go through US immigration/customs then check in to the Air Canada flight and go through security again?

The next flight after that is 8pm. Would it be better to just take this flight and maybe do a few hours day trip in San Fran?

Thank you so much in advance for your advice!
16:05 departure should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.
I fly from Yyz Toronto to Kona; with 1 hour connection in SFO. It is a United flight. I have one piece of checked luggage. Would i be able to make it in time? Thanks!!
Yes, that is enough time. Since you pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto all you have to do in SFO is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Thanks so much! So no need to pick up my luggage?
That is correct.
Hello I am concerned about making my flight; I arrive in San Francisco at 9:50pm in terminal 3, and my connection to Auckland is at 10:45 at terminal 1. Will that give me enough time to make my flight? Do I have to go through both security and customs?
Your flight to Auckland departs from the International Terminal, not Terminal 1. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. There is no US Customs when leaving the US. you have enough time.
I now realize I do not have to go through customs, but do I have to pass through security again when going from one terminal to the next?
No, Terminal 3 and concourse G of the International Terminal where you depart are connected inside security.
We are traveling from Detroit on delta to San Francisco to connect on air New Zealand to Auckland. We arrive at 6:21 pm in sf and epart at 7:55. Is that enough time?
You'll have to hope your flight is on-time and your bags come out quickly then hurry with your bags to the International Terminal to re-check them and go through security.
Thank you. I was able to change so now have about 5 hour layover. Btw, delta will transfer luggage to air New Zealand. Any suggestions for the layover? I assume we don't have enough time to check out anything in San Francisco, correct?
