  • Luggage Transfer LAX
    Oct 7, 2015
    Hi, I am thinking about flying from Fairbank (FAI) to Sydney (SYD) via LAX. All trips are with Delta/Virgin. Can my luggage be checked through at FAI? If so, this will be good as I hope to spend sometime in LA during the long layover, without having to recheck luggage at LAX.


    Yes, your bags can be checked straight through as long as both flights are the same day and on the same reservation.

    Arriving on AS at 6p from ZIH. Have to connect to AA to SFO at 7:15/ Do I need to go through Security at AA again. I have Global Entry and Carryon only. Is this enough time?

    Arrive in LAX 8.18, depart for Melbourne 10.20. Booked on same ticket so no bag rechecking. Does this give enough time to clear security, etc? Any passport control leaving LAX? Thanks.
