Connecting two different airlines to intl flight at Seattle
My parents are trying to book an award from Spokane, WA to Amman, Jordan on United but there is no space out of Spokane. They are trying to then do a flight from Spokane to Seattle on Alaska Airlines on BA Avios arriving in Seattle at 6am, and their United award would leave Seattle at 8:15am. Would that be enough time to make that connection? Is there some counter they could go to airside and check in for their next flight without having to go out to the ticketing counters and then re clear security? I’ve never done that before, so I was just wondering if it would be realistic for them to make the flight. Thanks!
In theory that could work, as they may be able to check in for their United flights online. However, that’s a [I]very[/I] tight connection, and those Spokane flights can be delayed due to weather and such.
If it were my parents, I’d have them fly in the night before, or find another airport where they can have a longer connection.
