    My mother in law is coming in on US Air from PHL and then transferring to American Eagle in Sept. Does US Air come into terminal 6 ... is there a bus that will take her to American Eagle?

    I depart from San Diego and arrive at Terminal 8 LAX at 7.50pm, and I have a LAX-Melbourne Australia flight from Terminal 7 departing 10.30pm. Have I allowed enough time to make it on to the flight to Melbourne?

    I'm coming from Tokyo and will arrive at Terminal 6, i need to get to Terminal 5 for a flight to SD, my final destination. I have checked in bags, so do i need to get the bags, then immigration and then get to terminal 5? or can i get to terminal 5 directly without collecting my bags?

     

    You will have to collect your bags to go through US Customs. What airline are you flying from Tokyo? No airlines that fly to Tokyo use Terminal 6.

     

  • SYD-LAX then LAX - YYC

    Hi, I'm flying Qantas from SYD to LAX arriving at 6:30am in Terminal B. Then I need to catch another flight from LAX to YYC (Calgary). There is a 8:35am flight by Westjet. The next one is Air Canada at 2:45pm. I prefer the 8:35am Westjet flight but I'm worried about not having enough time. Can you advice? Thank you.

     

    It's possible but difficult.

    Hello: I arrive in Terminal 2 with Aeromexico and my connecting flight with Westjet leaves from Terminal 2 as well. Do I have to leave the terminal and go through security again or can I simply remain within Terminal 2 after going through immigration and customs? Thanks!

     

    Once you clear customs you will be outside security. So you will have to go back through security to get to your departure gate.

    I am flying from Hong Kong to San Francisco and have a connection flight from LAX. I will be landing at LAX at 9:40am. Is it possible to catch a connection flight to SFO at noon or even 11:00am?? I want to know how long for us to go through US immigration, claim our bags etc. The 2 flight tickets are separately purchased. Thanks!!

     

    Noon is doable, but not risk-free. 11 AM, no way. There's so many flights from LAX to SFO, I would choose one around 1 PM if it were me.

     

    Thanks for your reply. Just one more thing to ask. I will probably take 12:00 flight to SFO. As I will arrive at LAX on Christmas Day and the airport would be busier, is it still possible for me to take 12:00 noon flight?

     

    Christmas Day itself is not a busy day.

    Hi Arriving on QF17 into Tom Bradley, at 14.15 and departing from Terminal 4 at 16.15. to SFO Is this enough time or should we choose a later flight to SFO.? Thanks.

     

    That should be barely enough time. If you miss your connection AA has lots of flights to SFO.

     

    Thank you for your info.

     

  • Delta domestic to Virgin Atlantic international LAX (T2 to T5)

    I have 1hr 55 mins from the minute my delta flight from Honolulu lands till my virgin Atlantic flight to London. It's on 2 separate tickets but delta will send the luggage through to London so I won't have to get baggage. I have to be through security 30 mins before the virgin flight so that leaves me 1 hour 25 mins to disembark and get to T5 security. Is this possible? TIA

     

    You have the terminals quite wrong. Delta does not use Terminal 2. Delta uses Terminal 5. Virgin Atlantic does not use Terminal 5. They use the International Terminal. So you have to go from T5 to the International terminal and go through security. You should have plenty of time if your flight from Honolulu is on-time.

     

    Sorry, I was incorrect about the Virgin Atlantic Terminal, They do use Terminal 2.. You simply had the terminals backwards.

     

    So you still think its do-able? How far is t5 to t2? ibe read the free virgin/delta shuttle takes like 20 minutes to get there and only come once wvery 15 mins which would screw us. Thanks so much for your help!

     

    Why would that screw you? Worst case it means it takes you 35 minutes to get to T2. That leaves you still 1 hr 20 minutes before your flight. You can walk from T5 to T2 in about 15-20 minutes, but the walk is outside security.

     

    hi there. first timer lax and tom bradley traveler. arriving via delta @ 2pm. international flight @ 9pm. how do i go from delta to tom? is there a shuttle? walk? how about my baggages- is there a cart that i can use? thanks

    I arrive at LAX at 21:39 from pheonix and have a connecting flight out to Sydney from LAX at 23:35. Is that enough time to make my connecting international flight?

     

    What airlines are you flying and were your tickets purchased together or separately?

    Hello, I am coming from China and need to take a connecting United airline to Chicago which I believe will be either terminal 7 or 8. Will I be able to walk instead of taking the shuttle? Thank you!

     

    Yes, it is possible to walk and in fact I recommend it.

    Please help. I will fly from Orlando to Bangkok via Delta Airline. My flight schedule at LAX is as follows: Flight DL185, MCO --- LAX 7:05 --- 9:31 layover in LAX 1hr19m Flight DL283, LAX --- NRT 10:50 --- 14:35 layover in NRT 2hr50m Is 1hr19m enough for connecting? Do I have to pass the security check again with my checked baggage (not hand carrying baggage)? Thank you

     

    Yes, that is plenty of time. All you have to do at LAX is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both in Terminal 5. No, you do not have to go through security.

    Hi I am flying from Heathrow to Seattle and have a connecting flight from LAX. I understand that I arrive in Tom Brady airport and have to exit and get to terminal 5 for a Delta flight. I only have 1 hr 45 minutes. Will I have time to claim my bag walk over to the other terminal and clear customs, Delta have booked the flight and said there is plenty of time, but I doubt it.

     

    You will arrive in the International Termina, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk immediately after (follow signs for connecting passengers), then exit the International Terminal and walk to your right, the second building you come to will be Terminal 5, Delta's terminal, you will then go through security and to your departure gate. You should have enough time if everything goes smoothly.

    Hello! I will be arriving on Fiji Air in LAX at 12:25 pm and need to leave on Delta at 3:10 pm. These will be separate bookings. Will that be enough time to clear immigration, claim our bags, get through customs and back to the terminal to check in for the next flight?

     

    That should be enough time. When you clear customs follow the signs for passengers ending their trip in LA, not connecting passengers, as you will have to take your bags with you to T5 to re-check with Delta.
