My son is travelling from Calgary to Seattle and then has to connect for a flight to Santa Ana. His flight is not yet up on the board but from what I see the flight the day before (I am aware this can change) has the same flight landing in terminal B and the connecting flight out of S. He has about an hour to connect. Best way to go from B to S?

Forgot to say that he will not have any checked luggage, just carry on.
B and S are concourses, not terminals. The only way from B to S is the underground train. He should have enough time.
We are leaving from Vancouver (YVR) to Sea on Delta and we will have already gone through customs in Vancouver. We have an hour and a half to make our connecting Delta flight to Maui. Do we still have get our bags and recheck if we are flying Delta on our second leg?? And is 1.5 enough time to make the second flight (it will be a Monday morning) two adult and two children.
You don't have to do anything with your bags. Just go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You should have plenty of time.
Thanks a lot! Appreciate it :)
How much time do I need to allow when flying from AK to Sea on AK airline, then going to Europe on Condor (different ticket)?
When retuning, will arrive SEA on Condor and have to go through custioms, correct? Then how much time to leave before check in for a flight back to Alaska?
(I have the Condor reservation, but need to make the domestic one). Thanks in advance for the needed info.
On the way to Europe. 2-2.5 hours is doable. On the way back I'd want at least 3 hours. Yes, you will have to go through US Immigration and Customs upon arrival from Europe in Seattle.
I am a US citizens flying back from Vancouver, BC to Seattle on Alaska then taking flight on Southwest to Sacramento

arrival to seatac 12:41. Looking to confirm if I would be able to make a 2:20 departure
You pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Vancouver. You will have to claim your bags from Alaska, re-check them with Southwest, and then go through security. That should be just enough time.
I will be flying to SEA-TAC on Southwest and will depart on Alaska. How much time is needed to collect checked bag from Southwest and check bag with Alaska and depart on Alaska? I will be doing the opposite on the return flight.
I would want at least 2 hours. You need to go to the main terminal to claim and re-check your bags and go through security.
Thank you ZAP!
I have 1 hr 7 min to transfer from the vancouver-SEA flight to the SEA-Japan flight. Is that sufficient time? If I have check-in luggage, what are the procedures for my check-in luggage and immigration that I will have to go through? Thank you
You pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Vancouver. If both flights are on the same reservation all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Thank you. So 1 hr 7 min to make the connection would be sufficient then? Will the arrival gate be in a different terminal from the departure gate (and so would require a lengthier transit time)?
Hi, I'll be flying from SFO to SEA and I have 57 minutes at SEA before my flight to Vancouver - is this enough time if I travel with carry-on? Thanks!
I'll be flying into SEA with Virgin, flying to Vancouver with Alasaka.
Yes, that is enough time.
Arriving from Australia at Seattle at 1.25pm - want to get to Anchorage on the same day. There is a 4pm flight - is that cutting it too fine? (Staying in Seattle for a few days on way home)
That should be enough time.
We are flying from Sacramento into Seattle and then onto Helsinki. Our Helsinki flight departure changed. Now there is just 1 1/4 hours between our scheduled arrival in Seattle and our international departure. Is there enough time between these flights? There is still time to re-book our initial flight.
Is it one reservation or two separate reservations?
Hi, is 1 hour 42 min enough time between Alaska airlines flight from Victoria BC - Seattle, then Seattle- Orlando? (early Friday morning flights)
travelling with party of 4.
Thanks!
Yes, that is enough time.
