I will be arriving at SFO International terminal at 11.50am, and connecting to Southwest Airline at SFO domestic Terminal 1 departing at 2pm on the same day, which is a Tuesday. Do you think I can make it?
That's only enough time if you have no checked bags and everything goes extremely smoothly.
I am meeting another traveler who is coming into Int. terminal on Alaskan Airlines. I am coming in on Delta (Terminal one?) We are meeting to take a cruise. How far are these terminals and what would be the best method to meet?
They are right next to each other. You can meet on the curbfront between them or meet in the baggage claim of the later arrival.
I have a 45min layover and am flying with United. is this enough time? Not sure which terminals I would be flying in/out of.
That's possible but it leaves no time to spare. You arrive in Terminal 3 or I-G and depart from I-G. They are connected inside security so all you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Arriving on Air New Zealand at 11:55 a.m. from Auckland. Connecting on United to Chicago. United changed our connecting flight to 12:45 p.m. Leaves 50 minutes. We have global entry and likely only carry on . . . is that enough time to make the connection? Flight originally booked as one ticket (Air New Zealand is a code share).
That's not sufficient time. You need to contact Whoever you booked your ticket through to get your reservation changed.
Can I go to virgin clubhouse lounge before clearing immigration and obtain my domestic flight boarding card, then clear immigration and go to terminal 2 to catch my domestic flight? Time is not an issue.
No, you can't. You go to immigration directly after arriving on an International flight.
I will be arriving at San Francisco airport via SW at Terminal 1 and need to meet friends at Terminal 3. Can I do this without exiting security? If I exit Terminal 1 than I cannot get into Terminal 3 due to security. Txs
