Personally, I would just walk from B15 to the edge of D Concourse / Security and board the tram whose next stop is.. N Gates! It should take you 5 minutes or less. When its time to depart, take that same tram from N whose next stop is.. C Gates! 🤙🏻

I'd just walk to the N loop. Take a brisk walk to the main terminal area from B15, make a left and walk toward the D gates. Almost directly across from the D lounge (which is at the base of the D pier, on your left) is a stairway / ramp (on your right) to get to the escalators down to the N train. I'd give this 15 minutes total, if you know how to walk with purpose.

I just looked at the map and was not aware there were two trains. I've only dealt with the north one but can tell you it's super quick.... like 3 mins between stops and comes every few minutes. I'd have to think you'll have time for a quick visit. I just flew through last week and was in/out in < 15 minutes (but I was arriving/departing from N). Assuming the south train is setup similarly to the north one, I can't imagine it taking for than 15 minutes to take both trains and walk across the main terminal. The airport really isn't that large compared to some.

There are actually 3 trains. The CDN Loop, the ABS loop and one from D to A to connect the two loops.

From latest reports, at least the departures level walkway remains closed between 1 and 2. You may need to go through the parking garage, or perhaps the arrivals level has landside walkway access.

B15 is at the end of B, which is a long walk, but there is an escalator right there, taking that train to central, then crossing over to the N train is quick and easy. Just not as much exercise as walking the length of B and 1/3rd of D.

Update for SFO. I couldnt see a usable sidewalk between T1 & T2 and the security guards said you had to walk through the garage. It was a 11 minute walk from my seat in the AC through T2 security (using Clear Pre-check, but there wasnt much of a TSA Pre-check line anyways). It was then 3 minutes to gate D10 for my flight. Im not a speed walker, but Im not slow IMO.
overall the AC was nice. Very open when I got there. Probably about 40% full when I left (at least on the food/bar area). Pasta Alfredo (with chicken, ham, carrots, and peas if desired) and chilli as well as utensils (plastic) were behind the bar, but prepackaged hummus, carrots, caprese salad, cheese cubes, and some other salad thing were all available to take.
overall, Id you have a bit of time at SFO its worth the walk. Overall T1 was very nice (including the well organised security area).

Great info., especially about the AC and food offerings, sounds pretty decent!

Maybe they just weren't aware of the sidewalk reopening, but I definitely saw people walking on it about 2 weeks ago...

And Clear+Pre is one of my favorite things, it's literally 5 minutes or less to any gate from there.

This AC is brand new, spacious and very comfortable with shower facilities. The food at the Amex CL is better, but it's very decent here with a pretty nice selection. It's definitely worth a visit.

Now that we have the SFO AC situation figured out, does anyone know how long it takes to get to the closest AC in PHX from the AS gates....I have a 2 hour connection (both AS metal).

I assume so, but I didn't request to use one. I'll check the next time I'm there, which should be next week.

I went to the AC back in mid-May when I had a few hours between flights. It is in a different terminal and I had to take the sky train. From AC to Alaska gate was more like 20 minutes from what I recall. But not terrible.

Food offerings were much the same, but it was much busier and self serve, which made everything a bit messier.
