How long does it take to get from terminal (C) Alaskan Airlines to baggage claim?
Maybe 10 minutes. C is a concourse, not a terminal.
Hi There,
we are flying from FAI to SEA arriving at 1929 on DL and then on a separate ticket we depart at 2125 from SEA to YVR with AC.
is this enough transit time (2hrs) in SEA?
With no checked bags that should be plenty of time. With checked bags that should be enough time.
I am looking at a flight with Delta from Calgary to Atlanta. It has a layover in Seattle of just 41 min.
I will have 1 checked bag.
Will this be enough time?
It is all 1 ticket
Yes, that is just enough time if the first flight is on-time. You pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Calgary.
Hello, we are flying Norwegian from London Gatwick to Seattle landing at 11.30am, we are booked on an Alaska flight to Missoula at 3.30pm. We have carry on luggage only. Should we go through immigration and then check in for our Missoula flight or is there a transit desk where we can check in? Or should we go through immigration so we can get something to eat etc?
Hope you can help!
You have to go through US Immigration and Customs upon arrival, then you are outside security. Then you can check in for your Missoula flight and go through security and get something to eat if you have time.
I will fly from SFO and connecting at Seattle to Reykjavik. The layover time is just 1h25min. Would that be enough time for everything ? (Not sure if I need to go through custom again and claim bags).
There is no US Customs when leaving the US. What airline are you flying from SFO to Seattle? Are both flights on the same reservation?
I'm thinking about booking a flight on Delta from HNL to JFK, transferring through SEA. The layover time is only 35 minutes, but it is one ticket on Delta -- is this enough time for a transfer? Based on historical flights, it seems like the flight lands in Terminal A and departs from Terminal S. Unfortunately, there's no way to see if this schedule typically "works" because the same route is currently scheduled slightly different (with a 1 hour layover between the flights), and I'm looking at booking the route for January.
It is possible if the first flight is on-time but it leaves no time to spare.
We arrive at Seattle on United at 11:39 a.m., need to get our bags and check them with Hainan Airlines for a 2:00 p.m. flight to Beijing. Can we make it? Do we need to take a shuttle to the South satellite to actually get on the plane?
You have to go to the main terminal, claim your bags, re-check your bags with Hainan, then go through security and to your departure gate via the Underground Train. You should have just enough time.
We will arrive on Alaska Air from Juneau in early August 2018 at 8:25 am. We need to connect to a Delta flight at 9:30am. Will we have enough time to make it to the flight?
Is it one reservation or two separate reservations? Do you have checked bags?
Our tickets are issued separately from Delta and Alaska Airlines. We were planning to use only carry on luggage unless there is a possibility that Alaska Airlines would transfer checked bags to Delta if requested.
I'm arriving in Seattle Saturday October 21 at 4:48 pm Frontier Airlines from Denver and have booked the 7:27 pm flight with Alaska Airline to Walla Walla Wa. What gates do these two airlines normally use and how long should it take me to get from one gate to the other?
Thanks for your help
Do you have checked bags or not? If you do you will have to go to the main terminal to claim them and then re-check them with Alaska.
I will have one carry-on bag with Frontier that I will have with me but I will need to check that bag with Alaska Airline. Also, what gates do Frontier and Alaska Airline normally use?
So then the gates don't really matter as you will have to exit security to check the bag with Alaska and then go back through security. You should still have enough time.
I would be arriving from sjc at 12:35 pm(delta) terminal B , and have a transit to an international flight - Amsterdam (delta) at 1:28 pm terminal S , is this sufficient enough time to make the connection?
Yes, those are just concourses not terminals. You just have to take the Train from B to S.
