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 looking at reservations for flight connecting in SFO with only 38 mins. Is this enough time? It's with United Airlines.
It's possible but leaves absolutely no time to spare.
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.
How much time would I need to get from Virgin Air terminal 2 to Singapore Air international terminal
If it's one reservation, 90 minutes, if it's two separate reservations, 2.5 hours.
Well, I have 90 minutes between flights. I arrive with Virgin Air,transfer to Singapore Air one reservation. I believe bags are checked through, I'm flying business class and I have fastpass.
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
You cannot go from T1 to T3 inside security.
I am arriving at SFO from Tel Aviv at 6:00am. Leaving at 8:15 am. to Minneapolis terminal 1.
This not on the same reservation is this enough time?
I forgot to say I have a carry only.
With carry-ons only it might be just enough time if you check in for your Delta flight online before leaving Israel.
Hi, we arrive at the International Terminal. Our friend is arriving at Ternimal 3. Can she walk to baggage claim at the International Terminal to meet us? If yes, how? Thank you.
Yes, she can. She can walk by following signs to the International terminal and walking [with her feet].
