    Last trip I flew on United, which goes from T3. This coming trip I'm on American which goes from T1. Both, however, fly out of the D gates. My shuttle stops at T3 first. Any reason I can't go from T3 to the D gates with an AA ticket? I can't see any reason it wouldn't be fine.

    I use T3 for any airline that goes out of the D gates. As long as you aren’t checking a bag and need to do anything at the American counter in T1, there’s no reason you can’t go through security at T3. I’ve always found T3’s security to be shorter (especially pre check), and with COVID, I’ve found that I like the extra space and less shops and people milling around in T3 versus T1.

    Did this last week - heading to "D" gates. Way easier to transit. Less people, especially since almost no intl flights right now.

    Make sure you get dropped off near the MIDDLE of the terminal to shorten your walk. United is the first stop, so get past that for sure.

    If you use CLEAR, note that the checkin is across from the TSA lines, not next to it like T-1.

    (we usually fly SWA and go to AMEX lounge in "D" terminal before flight - and never check bags)

    Has SWA gone to outside baggage checkin or is it all inside now?

    If you have to check bags for SWA - you have to go to Terminal 1 - NOT to Terminal 3
