  • Baggage claim

    I will be arriving at LAX to attend a conference, I will be in early before the shuttles start. Is there anything like a restaurant available at the terminal 7 baggage claim? Or are they all within the secured area?

     

    The Terminal 7 baggage claim is a crowded space that barely has enough room for the baggage carousels. There isn't even really anywhere to wait there.

     

  • TSA time in terminal 1 between 5 and 6

    I am flying out on Southwest tomorrow at 6. IFly's estimated time shows only that the wait is longer than 21 minutes. Any idea what a realistic time frame is?

     

    Try to arrive by at least 4:30, preferably closer to 4.

    What are the Hours of the 1st Class Lounge At LAX? Where is it located?

     

    What airline? What Terminal? You have to be more specific

     

    American, I think Terminal 6.

     

    No American flights that give you access to a first class lounge depart from Terminal 6. Where are you flying?

     

    HNL - LAX - CLT ALL ON AA

     

    Also it's overnight flight to CLT.

     

    That is all domestic. Unless you are an Admirals Club member you don't get lounge access from that ticket, even if you buy First Class.

     

  • 3 hr 20 minute layover

    I am looking at an itinerary. For my budget I must use two separate tickets. I leave BNA Nashville and arrive at LAX at 9:55am. The flight to Tokyo leaves at 1:10pm. I feel this is plenty of time, but I also feel that everything needs to run smoothly as well. Any tips or advisories to any current situations I should be aware of that make this risky? I've taken this route before and everything went smoothly. Except last time my layover was 8 hrs and I was bored as heck because I couldn't check in until 2 hrs before departure.

     

    THat should be enough time. What airlines are you flying?

     

    Thanks for replying. I'm not 100% sure just yet. Most like United (or perhaps ANA) from LAX to NRT. From Nashville most likely Delta or perhaps American Airlines. I feel its enough time. I just worry about a unforeseen mechanical delay or perhaps something weather related in Tennessee. I understand the weather is near perfect in LA that time of year.

    Hi, Im flying Toronto YYZ to Melbourne MEL with a stopover in LAX for 3.5hrs. Do I need to go through USA immigration and customs, get my luggage and check in at the counters in LAX for the journey to MEL, or will my luggage be booked through to MEL from YYZ and I won't have to go through border control in the US? Im on an Australian passport. Thanks!

     

    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. You won't have to do anything with your bags in LAX if both flights are on the same reservation. What airlines are you flying?

     

    Flying Air NZ.

     

    Sorry, Air Canada to LAX and then Air NZ to MEL.

    will 45 mins be enough time to change from a United Vancouver -lax to lax - Houston flight assuming the flight is on time. am using points so i have little control over which flights i take. thank you

     

    Yes, you will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Vancouver. All you have to do in LAX is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both in Terminal 7/8.

    Your site states no delay. Almost every flight IS delayed. AA 170 to Vegas delayed over 110 minutes. Should have left at 1400hrs

     

    The FAA never issued a Ground Delay or Ground Stop Program for LAX. That's what the site reports. For more advanced delay analytics, look at a site that specializes in that such as flightaware.com or flightstats.com

  • Delta Counter at Customs

    Hey everyone-- I am planning a return flight from SYD > LAX and then onto CVG. The only issue is my SYD > LAX flight is actually onward to DTW then EWR, so my bag will be tagged all the way through to EWR. Last time I did this in DTW, I didn't have any issues but was hoping someone could clarify that I will be okay. I assume there is a Delta desk with an agent in the customs area that will recheck my bag on this new reservation, is this correct? Additionally, will I have any issues pulling my bag at LAX even though that is not my final? Appreciate any help! Thanks!

     

    You will have to claim your bags to go through Customs in LAX. There may not be a Delta agent in the International Terminal at LAX to re-tag your bag, in which case you will have to take your bag to the Delta counter in T5 to be re-tagged.

    Hi there, I am doing the super crazy act of surprising my girlfriend at LAX and then joining her to fly back to Syd - Flight wise it has me arrive in from SYD on virgin VA1 arriving in @ 0630 Thursday 7th April - Then Flying Back on VA2 @ 2235 on Thursday 7th April, I really want to surprise her at her gate @ the Delta Terminal - will this possible with screening etc? I will only have a small carry on bag. thank you. :)

     

    No, you can't meet someone at the gate who is arriving on an International flight. Where is she arriving into LAX from and when does she arrive?

     

  • Delay because of Brussels attack

    We plan on flying to S. Korea this THU (March 24) from LAX and was wondering if there were any extended delays because of security reasons. How much extra time should we give ourselves?

     

    There are no changes to security. The only difference is more security guards/police in the lobbies.
