YVR International Connection...Help, Please

Hi, your help is appreciated.

I have 1.5 hours to connect between my AC flight from Hong Kong and UA flight to SFO...mid-afternoon on a Monday. I will have a checked bag. I am US citizen. Will that work? Thank you.

Probably. The minimum connection time (MCT) is 1hr 10mins which is plenty if you arrive on time. If it's a single (one ticket) itinerary, even if you miss the connection AC will get you on the next flight.

Thank you. I should have mentioned I had reviewed the MCT info. Not having done an Int transfer in YVR, per se, I was interested in whether the 1.5 hrs. was really doable despite the MCT info. Thanks, again.
