Delta 30min connection in SEA
« Reply #260 on: December 30, 2015, 12:45:14 AM »
Would it be enough time to switch planes between SkyWest DBA Delta Connection and Compass DBA Delta Connection? Delta allows to book the two flights together but it seems like a very short connection

is it one ticket or two? if its one ticket, they are responsible if anything goes wrong
If you think nobody cares about you... just forget to pay your credit card bill

3 tickets. Why there is difference between one or two?

2 legs on 3 tickets - how'd you pull that one off?

You completely missed @Einstein's question, so let me rephrase it.
Are you booking the 2 legs as 1 reservation with a connection or are you booking it as 2 seperate reservations?

Then there is nothing to worry about, if you miss your connection, Delta will rebook you.

AZ charges YQ on DL?
$300 on DL J JFK-TLV (RT required). There's close to a chance of nil that that award is ever bookable.
