Worries about a LAX - SEA - KIX trip

Jump to last reply

So in the near future I will be making a trip from LAX (Los Angeles int'l) to SEA (Seattle-Tacoma Int'l) with a layover of 1hr 50min, and will fly into KIX (Osaka Kansai Int'l).

A bit of personal travel history: I've never travelled on two different company planes before, codeshare or not. Only EVA AIR before and after the layover, or JAL before and after the layover.

My travel agent told me I would be flying Delta, but when ai got my itinerary, it said "Operated by Alaska Air"...

I have some worries about my flight, which seems will be a codeshare flight with Alaska Air the LAX - SEA leg, then Delta for the trans-Pacific leg.

I have a few questions...:

1. At LAX, should I check into an Alaska Air desk? Delta desk??

2. I have to check and see what the differences are, but in the case they are different, which airline's luggage policy do I go by?

3. Will they properly transfer my checked bags from the Alaska Air plane to my next Delta plane?? Or will I have to go hunt my things down and re-check in with Delta?

4. For those of you familiar with Seattle-Tacoma airport, how complicated is it to go from Domestic to International gates & security in a short amount of time? (Shorter if the plane is late??) (its my first time at SEA so I'm clueless!)

Lastly, 5. IN the case The first flight is late to leave and the connecting flight leaves without me, what will I do?
Last year when my sister made a LAX-SFO-KIX flight and the plane at SFO left without her, she was lucky enough to have me living really close to SFO to come pick her up, feed her, and give her a couch to crash on. She had a 1hr 30min layover, and then airline staff called to let them know that she and a few others will be late to the flight, but they still left without them, nonetheless.

To whoever can answer/help me with any of these questions, thank you so much in advance! I look forward to hearing from some of you soon!
