  • Changing Airlines after Customs
    May 21, 2015
    1
    Hi, I will be flying from Brussels to ORD and then changing airlines (separate ticket) to my final destination. Will I have to go out to general ticketing, recheck and go through security again or can I check into my next flight within security?

     

    You will arrive in Terminal 5, go through US Immigration, claim your bags and go through US Customs. You will then be outside security on the lower level of Terminal 5. Your next step depends on what airline you are taking for your next flight. What airline are you taking and where are you going? I hope you left at least 2.5 hours between flights.

    Hi, I am arriving on AA (operated by JAL) at 11.40 AM from Tokyo. My connecting flight is on AA (operated by mesa airlines as american eagle) to phoenix at 02.05 PM. Should I go through immigration and would i have enough time to catch the flight to PHX? thanks (first time being in the u.s.)

     

    Yes, upon arrival in LAX you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the transfer desk, then go to Terminal 4, go through security, then you will likely have to take the shuttle bus to the American Eagle satellite terminal. You barely have enough time.

     

    wow okay now I'm worried. Any suggestions to speed things up?

     

    but the jal flight and the mesa air flight is within one reservation. Wouldn't they transfer the bags for me?

     

    They do transfer your bags for you - from the re-check desk in the International Terminal to your Mesa flight. You have to claim your bags to go through US Customs when entering the United States. There's really nothing you can do to speed up the process other than not wasting any time and moving as quickly as you can.

     

    Thank you!

    Hello, please advise. I have a relative landing into Terminal 4 around 3:30 PM. He is traveling in a student group from Israel. How much time should I allow after the plane is scheduled to land for him to get through Customs and Immigration?

     

    45 minutes to an hour, assuming the flight is on-time.

    Walking distance from terminal 2 to terminal 7. Is 3 hours enough time to reach terminal 7 by walking. First time at LAX. Arriving from Toronto. Connecting at terminal 7 to Santa Barbara. Thanx.

     

    Yes, that should be plenty of time. You will pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Toronto. If you walk straight across the parking garages you can walk from T2 to T7 in less than 10 minutes. You can also take the shuttle bus on the lower level. that might take 20 minutes.

     

    Thank you.

    Hello, We have lost our camera inside Flight SN-3294 Tel Aviv du Brussels. The cleaning team did not find it in Brussel so maybe they found it the flight after when the plane landed again in tel Aviv. Thanks...

    I'm not familiar with any place named "Buellton". Also, no flights from Toronto to LAX arrive in Terminal 3. What airlines are you flying?

    I will be arriving from Italy at 9:03 pm. Will I be able to clear customs and catch a flight to Mexico that takes off at 12:50am?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time.

    Traveling through Detroit I have 39 minutes between take off and landing on Skywest and delta will I make it? That is hoping all other planes are on time.

     

    That is barely enough time if your first flight is on-time. All Delta and Delta Connection flights are located in the McNamara Terminal and connected inside security.

     

  • How long to clear immigration
    May 20, 2015

    Hi, I wondered if someone could help me please, I land just before 7pm on Friday the 29th of May into terminal 4. I have a British passport and was just wondering how long I should allow to clear immigration/customs? As I have two options for my pick up from the airport, either 8:30pm or 9:30pm and I know it can take a long time to get through. Any advice would be appreciated!

     

    You should be curbside within an hour after you arrive. So 8:30 should be fine.

     

    Great, thanks for your help

    I am connecting in PHL on a US Airways flight from Montreal to Barcelona? What is the process and how much time do I need for the connection? Do I have to go through passport control on arrival in PHL? Do I have to pick up and recheck my bag in PHL? Will I have to go through TSA security again?

     

    You will pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Montreal. All you have to do in PHL is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You will depart from Terminal A. You will likely arrive in Terminal F. Terminal F is connected to the other terminals inside security by a shuttle bus.

     

  • Enough time to clear customs from Australia for connection

    Our daughter will be flying in to LAX terminal B on Qantas at 0630 on a Saturday. I need to book her flight home to HOU. Southwest has a 10:20 am flight. Even if the flight is slightly delayed, do you think almost 4 hours gives her time to clear customs, recheck bags and get to Terminal 1? I was hoping customs would not be very busy at 0630 on a Saturday....

     

    Yes, 4 hours should be enough time to make the transfer. She will have to take her bags with her to Terminal 1. If she drops her bags at the re-check desk in the international terminal, they will be lost.

     

    Oh that is good to know. Thanks so much for your help!!
