Hi,

I plan to arrive in LAX from PHL on an AA flight. Then I have a 2hr layover before taking a Qantas flight to SYD.

Is this enough time? Will I have to go through security again?
You can just walk to your departure gate in the International Terminal via the connector building. You have enough time.
Hello,

I have a flight arriving at 8:27 am in LAX from Chicago and my other flight is at 9:45 am to Honolulu, it's 2 different tickets, not with the same company. Do you think I will have enough time to get the second flight?
Thank you very much!

What airlines are you flying? Do you have checked bags?
I'm flying with Spirit from Chicago to LAX and then with American Airlines from LAX to Honolulu. No checked bags, just 1 carry on bag.
Flying in on Delta domestic arriving 8:25 am. Departing Singapore air International to Japan at 10:00 am. Doable??? Not familiar with LAX as far as getting from terminal to terminal.....

Thank you
Is it one reservation or two separate reservations? If it's two separate reservations that will be difficult.
My plane leaves at 3pm , the shuttle we got on to the airport had several stops we did not know about. We will arrive at the airport about 2:10 pm will be Jane time to check in bars and not miss our flight?
Is it domestic or International? Do you have checked bags?
9/24 arriving United at T7, 7:37p. Must collect bag due to two tickets. Recheck and go back thru security. Departing TBIT Qantas 10:10p. Is this doable? Fastest way? Which direction do I head for Qantas in TBIT? And is that all on ground floor? Any chance there are porters to help w luggage?
Yes, that should be enough time if the United flight is on-time. Just go to the departure level - You will go left when you leave T7. I think Qantas is towards the middle of the TBIT.
Hi, I am flying United, all on the same ticket. I arrive from Denver at 21:15 and depart for Melbourne Australia at 22:35. Only 1h20m layover. Is that enough time?
Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Thank you ZAP. I'm finding this website very helpful!
I’m flying in from Iceland to LAX land at 8pm and my next flight is at 9:20pm do you think I’ll be able to get through customs and get to terminal 4 American Airline in time. Separate reservations?
No, I do not think that is enough time.
Goodday from Switzerland!
Is 1h38 enough for a layover in LAX ? Baggage will be checked in, one ticket only.
Do we have to collect + drop luggage ?
Many thanks!
All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to Terminal 7 to your departure gate in the International Terminal. You have enough time.
Arrives at LAX from CDG with AF at 1:05 pm on saturday. Have seperate ticket from LAX to ATL with SW at 3:50 PM same day. Can I make it? if so Where should I go? Thank you
I will have checked in bag
That will be very difficult. You will have to carry your bag yourself to Terminal 1 to re-check it with Southwest.
Is a 2 hour layover enough time at LAX airport to go from International flight to domestic? I know we need to go through customs, then security and then to another terminal. Thanks!
If everything is on the same reservation that should be just enough time.
