I have a connecting light through LAX arriving in united airline from sydney australia then a connecting flight to Montreal Canada vis Air Canada. Do i have to go through baggae claim, immigration, custome security????
Yes, you will arrive in the International Terminal, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check them at the re-check desk, then it depends when you are traveling, if you are traveling before May 12 you will go to Terminal 2, after May 12 Terminal 6, and through security and to your departure gate.
we have an international flight from the philippines to arrive in LAX at 7:00 pm. Is it possible for us to take a connecting 9:25 pm flight of American Airlines to San Jose? considering the time to disembark, get the checked luggage, pass thru Immigration, then transfer to check-in counter of american airlines.
That would be just enough time if everything went perfectly. Personally I'd just spend the night in LAX and fly to San Jose the next morning.
I saw some people post a couple year ago that they recieved an express connection pass when they have tight connection at LAX so that they could go through immigration via special lense and could get on the next flight in time.
Is that still a thing these days? Do you know what criteria airline has when they issue that pass, i.e. How tight it has to be (lass than an hour, two hours, etc.)?
I have never heard of such a thing. What connection are you atttempting?
Due to injury, not flown since New Year 2016. Has CBP reopened at Terminal 4 for American 109 or 135 arrival from London Heathrow or is it still cleared at TBIT? Any info or update would be very helpful. Thanks
We are flying from Melbourne Australia to Quito via LAX and IAH. Is a 2hr 20m layover in LAX sufficient to clear immigration, collect bags, clear customs, re-check bags and travel from Term B to Term 7? Can bags be rechecked all way to Quito? Is there a shuttle between terminals?
If all flights are on United your bags will be tagged to Quito but you will still have to claim them at LAX to go through security. There is a shuttle to Terminal 7 but I suggest walking (the shuttle gets stuck in traffic). You won't have to do anything with your bags in Houston. You have enough time for your connection at LAX.
