Domestic to International - not booked through

    We are traveling in on SouthWest and leaving on China Eastern 3 hours later. The flights are not booked through.
    My question will we have enough time to go to SouthWest baggage claim and then go back through security to get to our international flight ?

    At which airport? Do you have TSA-Pre? Any status?

    I think the answer is yes - 3 hours absolutely should be enough. The one caveat is that if the Southwest flight is delayed, you could be rushing (or miss the flight entirely. Not likely, but....).

    Agree with OCTinPHL. You should have enough time. What airport are you connecting in?

    You should also look at paying for early bird check-in with Southwest, so that you can ideally get A boarding group, and sit as close to the front of the plane as possible. Could give you an extra 15 minute buffer.

    Should be enough time at most airports.
