I will be meeting a friend at the Seattle Airport to fly on to Las Vegas. We will both be flying Alaska Airlines. She will be flying from Anchorage, AK and I will fly from Pasco, WA. Do all Alaska domestic flights arrive and depart from the same terminal? Which one? My friend has MS so walking long distances can be difficult. Where would be a good place for us to plan to meet?
Seattle only has one terminal. Just meet at your Las Vegas gate.
I guess what I really was asking was, do all Alaska flights arrive and depart from the same concourse? We have a long layover and would like to get a bit to eat between flights.
I'm going to have an almost 2 hour layover (connecting from Medford to Vancouver). Would I have time to go outside security to meet some friends for lunch? Or is it possible to meet in Baggage Claim (or would I have to go through security again anyway)?
No, that's not really enough time and there aren't really any restaurants outside security anyway.
That's what I thought--would've been nice to be wrong, though!
Is my 3 hour layover on the way back long enough to meet anyone?
Yeah, 3 hours would be long enough but doesn't really solve the problem of there not being anywhere really to go.
If you making an international connection through Seattle, arriving from Kelowna Canada travelling to Australia....all on same ticket with same airline codeshare flights. Do you have to clear customs and redo security or do they have a fast connections line to make your connecting flight. Just over an hour. Thanks
Yes, you will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then go through security and to your departure gate. There is no "fast connections line". That is a very difficult connection. Also there are no nonstop flights from Seattle to Australia, so you must be flying somewhere else first.
The English-second-language employees couldn't care less about you. They will stop cooking 15 minutes before closing, turning patrons away even if there are 20 people in line. They want to be able to walk away at closing time. But they closed two hours early (10 pm) not the posted 12 pm.
Qboda the Mexican taco place in the main terminal was a complete disappointment. The staff was rude and the food was bland. The tortillas tasted undercooked while the steak tasted like it was old. I know it is airport food but usually for the amount I paid I expected something eatable.
