Hi, I have a flight from Terminal 5 on Delta. After clearing customs/ bag checks will I be able to walk over to Terminal 6 and back? I have a long transit and would like to access the Alaska Airlines Board Room which is in Terminal 6.
You will be outside the secure area once you clear customs. Do you have another flight leaving LAX that day? Terminal 5 and 6 are connected by a tunnel inside security.
Thanks @ZAP. Actually to clarify I will be arriving at the international terminal then will walk to terminal 5 where my connection is. I was hoping to walk over to terminal 6 where my preferred lounge is after I clear the necessary customs in terminal 5. Will that be possible?
You won't clear customs in Terminal 5. You will go through security in Terminal 5. You will go through customs in the International Terminal when you arrive. There is no US Customs when exiting the US. Yes, you can walk between Terminal 5 and Terminal 6 inside security through a tunnel.
Hello - I land in LAX on a domestic flight from New York. My friend is leaving the country for good and moving back to Australia. I want to have a goodbye drink with her and she leaves from Tom Bradley International Terminal - can I go though security and meet her in the departures area without having a ticket to fly out of that Terminal?
No, you will not be able to go through security at LAX in any terminal unless you have a ticket departing LAX that day.
I have a 2 hour connection at LAX tomorrow (coming in from T2, leaving from T4). Flight out from LAX is a later one. Would it be worth it to buy a pass to the AA Admiral's Club?
Probably not, considering it will take you about 40 minutes to get from T2 to T4 and through security, and that you should leave the club 30 minutes before your flight, you would only be in the club about 45-50 minutes.
Is there anywhere on the arrivals level of any of T's 6,5,4, or TBIT that sells soft drinks? The starbucks I found in T5 didn't have soft drinks.
The TBIT lobby just has one level - you could walk into the food court in the TBIT.
Thanks again ZAP!
Is the foodcourt in TBIT on the departures or arrivals level?
Just as ZAP said there is a food court with a variety of restaurants, and stores on the arrivals level of TBIT. It's a great place to pick up something if you aren't ready to go through security for your flight!
STAY AWAY !!! 20 people in line, and the female English-second-language order taker was hacking and coughing, saying that there was a 30 minute wait for a burger...the price for one was $11.00!!! All 20 people left angry. Unfortunately, this was the only fast-food place in this part of the airport. I expect them to go out of business soon.
