Topic Discussion

I'll be arriving on Alaska air on Wednesday and doing a separate one-way to Vancouver BC on Air Canada with approximately three hours between the two flights. Will this be enough time? Do I need to go through TSA/leave the airport and come back for international instead? Lastly, would this be enough time if able to leave the airport for an errand and come back before the necessary check in time? Traveling with a personal bag and carry on only. Please help. Thank you.
Yes, that is enough time to make your connection but probably not enough time to leave the airport except perhaps very briefly.
Hello, I have an Indian Passport. Booked my flights with Delta airlines under one ticket. Flying from Delhi to Hong kong and then Hong kong to Seattle. I have a layover of 1hr 25 mins at Seattle airport for my next connecting flight to Edmonton (Canada).
Is the layover time sufficient? I will be having 2 checked in bags. Would you be able to provide additional information on gate/terminal numbers for me to save some time?
Thank you.
That is very difficult. You will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, go through security and to your departure gate.
Hello, I am flying from Hong kong to Seattle via delta airlines and need to leave for final destination (canada) with a layover time of 1hr 25 mins. Is this time sufficient to clear immigrations at SEA airport and catch connecting flight? And what exactly do I need to do on the airport apart from check in my baggage again?

Thank you in advance.
That is very difficult. You will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, go through security and to your departure gate.
Arriving from Victoria BC Canada with Delta and going to Kona? One hour between scheduled arrival and departure. Is this enough time for security, customs, immigration assuming I have full 60 minutes?
That will be very difficult but it's not impossible. I believe they time the Victoria flights to arrive when immigration isn't busy.
Arriving on southwest at 4:10 pm on Tuesday, Aug. 8.
Have a connecting Alaskan Airline flight at 5:50 same evening. (not sure which concourse but could be C, D or N I believe )

Will I be able to make it? Thanks
two separate reservations
With no checked bags that's enough time if you check in for your Alaska flight online. With checked bags that will be quite a bit more difficult as you will have to transfer your bags yourself.
How can I get from D8 to A14 quickly?
Running is probably the best way.
Arriving in Seattle on Delta from SLC. I arrive at 4.19pm. My virgin flight (all on same ticket) to LHR departs at 5.40pm. Is 1 hour 20 enough time? Hand luggage only.
Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Is 40 minutes enough connection time for this(see below)?
What steps must I take to go from arrival to the departure gate?

DEPARTS 05:45 AM from Eugene (EUG)
ARRIVES 06:50 AM at Seattle-Tacoma Intl (SEA)

40m Layover in Seattle, WA | You change planes in SEA

FROM SEA TO YVR
DEPARTS 07:30 AM from Seattle-Tacoma Intl (SEA)
Both flights are with Delta Airlines
All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time if the first flight is on-time.
I have 1 hour to get from concourse s to a . What is the fastest way? And do I need to check in again?
Where are you flying from and to? On what airlines?
On Delta from Seattle to SLC
Where are you flying into Seattle from?
I am flying from Sacramento (SMF) to Vancouver (YVR) and i will be stopping in Seattle. I leave very early from Sacramento to Seattle, so is this leg going to be considered an international flight, or will the Seattle to Vancouver leg the international portion? I only have 1 hour in Seattle, will this be enough time to go through customs if i have to go through customs in Seattle? Thank you for your help.
The Seattle to Vancouver leg is considered international. There is no US Customs when leaving the US. All you have to do in Seattle is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You just show your passport when boarding the plane to Vancouver.
