Question About LAS (Harry Reid) Departure Gates/Terminals

I have a flight leaving tomorrow from Terminal 3 but in the D gates (satellite terminal). My friend has a flight leaving around the same time from Terminal 1 from the D gates (same satellite terminal). Can we both use security in the same Terminal (1 or 3) and proceed to the gates together or are we likely to get sent to our ticketed terminal for security? Assume we're both already checked in?

Thanks

You should be able to do that if you aren’t checking bags. The difference in the terminals in airline check in and bag claim.

Next time, use Terminal 3 if you have no checked bags. It's newer, cleaner, quieter, and 100% free of that hideous '80s blue carpet that looks like it hasn't been cleaned since the 20th century.

That's only because it hasn't.

I've only used T1 at LAS and D gates since I fly with AA or DL.
Why would they have D gates for both T1 and T3--couldn't that cause confusion for some pax.

All D gates exist in a satellite gate area. The D gates are accessible by tram from either T1 or T3.

T3 is newer, nicer, a shorter tram ride to the D gates, and less crowded.

You can access any D gate from T3. I fly AA and DL and don't use T1 to fly out of LAS unless I have a bag to check.

I believe United checkin is terminal 3 but gates are in D. I usually use terminal 3 when flying AA with no checked luggage since the tsa lines are usually shorter at T3 and T3 has less drop off traffic.

Hey all,

Sorry for bumping this old thread, didnt want to start a new one.

I am departing from LAS on Air Canada who uses T3 and the E gates. I have access to Centurion and United lounges and also have priority pass for The Club lounge. Is it worth me going to the D gates for one of those other lounges or should I stay at the one in the E gates? Havent been to LAS for quite some time so not familiar with the quality and setup of the lounges.

Thanks

Isn't the Club Lounge open in T3?

Next time, I'd suggest using terminal 3. I normally fly on a terminal 1 airline with D gates but use terminal 3 for arrival and departure. Terminal 3 dropoff is much less crowded, TSA lines are shorter, the walk to/from the gate is shorter, and the terminal 3 bathrooms are newer and cleaner.

Worth it. Tram from E to D gates is very short, perhaps 30-40 seconds.

Thanks a lot. Actually my AC flight left from the D gates. It appears that AC widebody flights leave from the D gates and narrowbody ones leave from the E gates so I was where I was supposed to be! We hit up the Centurion lounge.

Centurion is by far the best lounge at LAS.
