BA FIRST CLASS TO SAN JOSE AND TRANS­FER TO SAN FRAN­CISCO

Business Traveller - - INBOX -

I’ll be trav­el­ling in First with BA into San Jose [Cal­i­for­nia] and hoped to find out the fol­low­ing: 1. Do BA First fly­ers get pri­or­ity bag­gage re­claim? 2. Is there a fast-track cus­toms option for First arrivals? I’m a UK na­tional with a UK pass­port. 3. Ap­prox­i­mately how long does it take for First pas­sen­gers to clear cus­toms and bag­gage re­claim from ar­rival time? 4. I was think­ing of us­ing So­cialDrv for trans­fer to San Fran­cisco. Views?

1. Yes, but it isn’t usu­ally pri­or­ity de­liv­ery and the bags of­ten come out with ev­ery­one else’s. 2. No. 3. Al­low about an hour – by ex­it­ing the air­craft first you should, un­less you are be­hind an­other in­ter­na­tional ar­rival, clear im­mi­gra­tion quickly. 4. Yes, the drive takes about an hour. How­ever, the Cal­train is pretty good.

I’ve flown this route a num­ber of times in the past year in First and never been de­layed at San Jose pass­port con­trol. No other flights ar­rive at this time (un­less this has changed re­cently) so you should be through fast. If you are us­ing a car ser­vice from San Fran­cisco back to San Jose, note that 101 South can be like a car park be­tween 4pm and 6pm so al­low plenty of time. I’ve done it in 75 min­utes but it once took nearly three hours and I made it just in time for the flight. The third-party lounge at San Jose is not bad if you ar­rive early and have to kill time.
