Last Monday (May 9), it took a full 60 minutes to get through security in Terminal 3- American, at 1:30 pm. I made my flight by 2 minutes. There were empty seats in the plane although the flight was fully booked because other passengers didn't get through in time. On my return to O'hare on Wed May 11 at 3:00 PM, those lines were even longer, especially the TSA Pre check line, which looked to be at least an hour wait. It was crazy.
taking SBairbus ground xport scheduled to arrive LAX on Sunday 5/29 at 12:45 p.m to depart at 3:30p.m. on flight BA282 from Lax to LHR continuing on BA 560 to FCO.. This gives us 2 hrs. 45 min.
I'm concerned with recent news reports at other airports that security can take hours now. However, a check today on your site seemed to indicate todays flight at the same time that security was 10 minutes, which seems very short.
We are a family of 4 2 seniors, 2 teens. We have handcarry-on only, no checked luggage. And we are on nonrefundable cheap tickets.
Do we have enough time? or do we need to take the earlier bus to arrive 4.5 hours early to lax instead? Is 2 hrs. 45 minutes in advance on BA 282 for international terminal B flight out of lax enough time - given security issues?.
LAX doesn't see to be as bad as some other airports. 2:45 should be enough time.
Thank you. Would that still be the case on Sunday of memorial day weekend at the intl terminal at lax?
Arriving at 7:15 (LAN from Chile) and connecting with AA at 10:00 (domestic), non resident alien on tourist visa, - will I make it comfortably? different reservations and checked luggage. Returning flight, domestic AA 8:52 PM arrival and Intl LAN 10:20 PM departure? Different reservations and checked luggage. Thank you!
Your return flight will be pretty much impossible unless you don't check any bags.
