Flight concerns. Have I got time

I will be flying from Anaheim to Vancouver via Seattle, flying on Alaska Air.

My concern is that I have 55minutes from when we land in Seattle to take off for Vancouver.

Luggage will be checked straight through but I am concerned we still won't have time. Surely Alaska Air would not have allowed the booking to go through if it was not possible. I booked online through Alaska air and these are the flights they allocated.

G'day Daniel,

I would also post this question on the Air Travel forum if I were you. There are very experienced advisers there as well.

I would suggest that you re-title your message to something like:

"Have I got time - LAX to SEA to YVR"

They love airport codes on that forum. Leave the rest of your message the same as above. The Air Travel forum is here:

seatac is pretty small so no problem. You don't do customs till Vanc so you just get off your plane and board the Vanc plane. Horizon will be in the C concourse and your plane may land in the N satelite. There is a train and there shouldn't be any issues.

For years I did the trip from either sfo or oak to Vancouver through Seattle at least once a month or more...only missed connection like yours 1 time. There are lots of flights from SEA to Vancouver so if you do have a problem they'll get you on the next flight. Alaska has a pretty good on time record and as David has said it's not that big an airport.

Since it's all through Alaska Air, even if you miss your flight they are required to put you on another flight.
