I need guidance on the process. When I arrive from Canada, collect my bag do I clear customs in the same terminal? Then drop bag and catch tram to next terminal for connecting flight? Or do I collect bag and catch tram to another terminal to clear customs, drop bag and head to departure gate all in that terminal?
I assume I don't need to pass through security again.
I go from Burbank BUR with Alaska 165, and I need to meet someone who comes from Paris Charles De Gaulle CDG with Air France AF 3622 (operated by Delta). How can I get from Alaska terminal to Air France terminal?
What help can I get. i am traveling on 10th May and meeting other party at American. I am a wheel chair traveller.
I’m flying from puerto Vallarta to Vancouver BC with a 1 hr 15 min stopover in Seattle will there be a time problem making my second flight
If both flights are on the same reservation that is barely enough time if everything goes perfectly. If it's two separate reservations you have no chance.
It was booked at the same time and I asked numerous times if it was enough time and was told no problem. Now I don’t know what will happen if we miss our connecting flight from Seattle to Vancouver.
We will only be using carry-on bags so hopefully that will help us make our connecting flight
meeting family members coming in from Gatwick. Would like to know where to meet them?
Seattle only has one terminal. They will come out on the arrivals level of the only terminal.
I will be meeting an arriving Military charter from South Korea called the Patriot Express, do you know what terminal this flight will be arriving at or how I can track this flight on the arrival board?
Seattle only has one terminal. Assuming they have to clear US Immigration and Customs, they will arrive at the terminal just like any other flight. You likely won't be able to track it, but it's possible that they will have it on the airport's arrival board, likely listed as an Atlas Air or Omni Air flight (they seem to operate all the Military charters from South Korea). However, it's also possible that they will not have to clear Immigration upon arrival and will instead arrive at a remote apron and take buses somewhere where they can meet their family or access ground transportation or onward airline flights.
I am travelling from Denver, CO to Victoria, BC Canada with a connecting flight in Seattle, WA. Where do I go through Customs and how long should I allow for the layover?
There is no US Customs when leaving the US. You go directly to your departure gate.

THANKS AND REGARDS,
Uber can only be booked using a mobile device. You could do so by logging onto wifi without a mobile sim. However, if you are wheelchair-bound (ie you can't get out to sit in a regular seat), then you cannot use Uber in Seattle.
Thanks for support.
Though wheel chair has been requested to air lines,I can sit in a regular seat.Please help in making me understand, how without mobile sim,logging on to wi fi,how Uber can be booked and how to call the uber driver without sim?
Will the wheel chair assistant help me to connect to the Uber staff,as I am new to airport ?
How much time would I likely need to collect baggage from a Delta flight arriving in Concourse A and be able to check into a SWA flight (with checked luggage) departing from concourse B?
This question pertains to Seattle airport.
I would want at least 90 minutes, preferably closer to 2 hours between flights.
Flying on KLM from Amesterand to SEA. The layover is then only an 1hour 50 min to get to KLM/DELTA flight to AGO. All is booked as 1 ticket. I'm assuming that I need to get luggage, go through customes, check in for sea-sfo. Is this enough time?
Not AGO but SFO ....my phone does auto correct but messes up my question sorry.
That should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.
