I am travelling from YVR to Amsterdam through Seattle by delta airlines. Is one hour layover enough? Do we need to collect baggage and re check in in Seattle?
You pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Vancouver. All you have to do in Seattle on the way to Amsterdam is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.
I am looking at going to Iceland next year and looking at the plane tickets. There is an Alaska Airlines to Icelandair combination, with a layover in Seattle both coming and going. The layover can range from from 1.5 hours to 6 hours. Does anyone have any experience with going from Domestic to International at this airport and can recommend a minimum time for a layover? Thanks!
We have 50 minutes from arrival on Delta Connection to make our Delta flight to Paris. Is that enough time assuming flights are on time ? Thanks
We need to meet friends at the Main Terminal and stop for breakfast. Where would be a location where they could meet us without them having to go through Security?
Where if the lounge for Icelandair located?
Im traveling to canada for the week and have a connecting flight in Seattle from LA. Do i need to get my bags and get them re-checked? i have a 47min wait.
I'm trying to book my flight from Edmonton to Sacramento. They are giving me a layover of 55 min in Seattle. All flights are on Delta. I don't plan on checking bags. Is this enough time?
I am flying from Köln Germany to SEA and then from SEA to MSO on two separate reservations. My flight from CGN (Eurowings) arrives in SEA at 2 pm and my flight to MSO (Alaska Air) leaves at 3:35 pm... Any tips or suggestions you guys have to help me make my connection?
I also forgot to mention that I have a checked bag.
With checked baggage that connection isn't really possible.
Flying into Seattle with Virgin from LHR, then out to SLC with Delta. Layover time is 1 hour 40, and both trips are on the same ticket. Travelling with hand luggage only. Is this enough time? Assuming I need to clear customs / immigration but with no bags to collect. Thanks
My mother is going to fly Alaska Airlines from Missoula to Seattle, then Seattle (with 6 hours layover) fly Xiamen Airlines to Shenzhen, China. All flights are under one reservation. Will she need to pick up her luggages in Seattle and re-checkin them? Thank you!
If everything is on the same reservation then she won't have to claim her bags in Seattle on the way to Shenzhen.
