Arriving into SEA from LHR on March 22 @ 15.55: allowing for Customs and immigration how long should I allow for a connecting flight to YVR ?....(which I will be booking on a separate return ticket)
I would allow 3 hours at Seattle on your way to Vancouver and at least 2.5 on the way back to London if it's two separate reservations.
Excellent,many thanks indeed,I will allow that in my planning for my connection to YVR!
i will fly from pullman to seattle with alaska. and continue my trip to jakarta with Eva air.
do I have to go to baggage claim and bring all my luggage to international check in? or I can do directly in Pullman to my final destination? and how to go to eva air check in if i fly with alaska from pullman?
Is it all on one reservation or did you purchase two separate reservations?
i have different tickets. with 2 reservation.
one is alaska
the other on is eva air as return ticket from jakarta
Then yes, you will have to claim your bags from Alaska and re-check them with EVA in the main terminal.
I'm flying Delta to Anchorage with a stop in Seattle but only have 42 min between arrival and departure. Will I make it?
Where are you coming from? If it's domestic that should be just enough time.
I have a Delta flight from SFO to SEA then flying to AMS. Delta shows a layover time of 58min. Will that be enough?
Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do in Seattle on your way to Amsterdam is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
My fiance and I are traveling from Bangkok to Seattle on Delta (in economy plus seating) and arrive on a Monday at 1:25PM. We have a Southwest flight booked at 3:25PM from SEA to Nashville.

Will we have enough time to clear customs and make our next flight? (I have pre-check, he does not).

Thanks for your help!
That is just enough time if everything goes perfectly.
I will be flying from Hong Kong connecting in Seattle and then on to Detroit. Delta is showing a 1:23 connection time. Is that enough or do I need to wait for the next flight? (3:38 connection time). We will need to clear immigration and recheck our bags.

That's barely enough time if everything goes perfectly. I would probably book the longer connection.
I will be flying on Southwest with check in luggage & flying out on EVA air. How do I get from gate B to baggage claim & then to EVA ticket counter on to S gate?
the baggage claim and EVA ticket counter are just on different levels of the same building. When you arrive, just follow signs to baggage claim, then claim your bags, take them upstairs to EVA, check them with them, then go through security and to your departure gate in S on the train.
Thank yoi ZAP
Flying in Alaska air from YVR to Sea tac and the change flights to MCO (also in Alaska air) is 50min enough time to get from one flight to the next?
Yes, that is enough time. You just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate in Seattle. You pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Vancouver.
Coming from Vancouver to Seattle on Delta do I have to get my checked bags and re check them to continue on Delta to Orlando?
You pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Vancouver. All you have to do in Seattle is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Thank you so much
I'm flying from Anchorage on Delta to Seattle to catch a Southwest flight. I have two hours between flights. Are two hours enough time to accomplish deplaning on Delta, going to Delta baggage claim to retrieve my checked bag, then checking into SW and checking my bag and get to the SW gate 45 minutes before takeoff?
Yes, that should be enough time if the Delta flight is on-time. Seattle only has one Terminal.
Thank you for your quick response!
