  • Canada to Australia

    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.

  • delays
    May 6, 2016
    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 or

  • Delta Counter at Customs
    Apr 19, 2016
    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.

    Apr 5, 2016
    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
    Mar 23, 2016
    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.


  • Arriving at Terminal 6 and leaving from Terminal 2
    Mar 23, 2016
    We will be arriving from BNA at terminal 6 and going on to Hawaii from terminal 2. What is the quickest way to make it to terminal 2 and will we have to leave the terminal area and come back through security?


    Yes, you will have to exit security and go back through security. The fastest way way is to walk straight across the parking garages, but there is also a shuttle bus that runs on the lower level.


    Will we have to do anything with our checked luggage? Or will American arrange for it to be taken to Hawaiian Airlines?


    You will have to claim it from American and take it to Terminal 2 to re-check.

    My wife and I are flying from Cancun to Lax. Will we go through customs in Cancun or Lax? Thank you.


    If you are flying nonstop you will go through US Immigration and Customs in LAX.


  • Plane Change in LAX
    Nov 16, 2015
    I have a "Direct Flight" from JFK - Sydney via LAX. Since both flights are on Qantas, does that mean I will enter and leave from the International terminal? Will we have to go through security again? The layover is 1 hour and 25 minutes, so I'm worried about making the connecting flight.


    All you have to do in LAX is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both in the International Terminal. You have plenty of time.


  • How do I get to TErminal 4 Delata from TBIA?
    Nov 15, 2015
    I just have 2 hours to go to Terminal 4 from clearing customs after arriving from Phil Airlines to connect flight to Tucson. How do I get to Terminal 4? will i have enough time ? I have a luggage to claim too.


    You just walk from the International Terminal where you arrive to Terminal 4. Terminal 4 is right next door, to the right (with the flow of vehicle traffic). You will have to bring your bags with you to Terminal 4 to re-check them with American. You have barely enough time if your Philippine flight is on-time.


    Also, I don't know what you mean by "Delata", but if you mean Delta Air Lines, they use Terminal 5, not Terminal 4.
