SFO terminal question

Jump to last reply

We are flying to South Korea and Japan this October. We found a great flight with Sinagpore Airlines that will save us 25%-30% of the price of the tickets. However, we will have to book separate tickets to get us from Kansas City to San Fran to take the flight. We will arrive at SFO on Southwest and since they are not partners with Singapore will we have to recheck our bags? The flight arrives in SFO at 10:30am and the departing Seoul flights is at 2:20pm. This seems like enough time to deboard, claim luggage, transfer terminals, recheck in and go through security and eat lunch. Would you do this? I would love some advice and thoughts on booking a trip this way.

Also, the return flight would be from Tokyo to LAX and our LAX-Kansas City flight would be on US Air which is a partner so we wouldn't have the luggage issue. We would have 4 hours inbetween flights for customs and transfering terminals.
