DK Eyewitness Travel Guides for San Francisco & Las Vegas(my favourite travel guidebooks) thumbed through, highlighted and dog-eared in preparation for our trip - coupled with trawling through the San Fran and Las Vegas forums. They have all failed to give me any advice on how long we should factor between connecting flights. Most of the good rates give stopovers in New York etc travelling to San Fran (and from Las Vegas home) with layovers from 1hr 55 minutes (I think too short) to over 6 hours.
Although I have travelled to the US several times, I have yet to take connecting flights and don't want to screw it up.
So - my question is - how long of a layover should I consider? All of the flights we are considering leave from the same airports (separate terminals) which should make it easier. Do we have to clear customs at our first point of entry or when we reach San Franciso?. I'm leaning towards a flight where we have a layover of 4 hours. Just think that should give us time to find our bearings/clear customes (if necessary) and factor in flight delay etc
And before anyone says - yes I know I'm posting on the Irish forum but know I will get top tips from our American friends rather than posting on the US forums
C'mon Montana Frank and Co - help me out!!
