United has us booked with a 30 min connection between United flights in LAX. Is that doable?
Yes, that's possible if the flight from Newark is on-time. All you have to do in LAX is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate and all United gates at LAX are walkable within 5-10 minutes.
We will arrive with KL 601 on 11.55 and the next fight with Delta is on 14.10. Connection time 2.10 hour. Is this enough?
Last year it takes more than 3 hours. That was very stressful.
It will be difficult, but it's not impossible, especially if you are a repeat ESTA user and can therefore use the kiosks.
Hello, we are connecting at LAX on United #5654 from Sacramento to United #780 to San Jose del Cabo, Mex. Do we need to change terminals and redo security. Layover is 55 Minutes.
All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. Both in Terminals 7/8 which are connected inside security.
Hey everyone!

I'm hoping to get a little assistance with how much time I should allow between my LAX international arrival flight and domestic onward flight.

I will arrive at LAX Terminal B on Qantas QF11 from SYD at 0630. I have a Southwest flight (WN1850) booked to DIA which departs at 0925. Assuming the Qantas flight is on-time, this would allow just under 3 hours between flights.

Do you think this would be enough time? I have a US Passport so I assume that would save a little time at Customs/Immigration?

There is also a Southwest flight available at 1100 which I could switch to if needed which would allow 4.5 hours between flights. Does that seem excessive?

Thank you for any help!

That should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Thank you for your reply ZAP. Just curious, if it were you, would you stick with the 0925 flight or go with he 1100 flight? Thanks again!
I think you can make the 0925. But then again if you don't mind sitting in airports and would rather play it safe, the 1100 isn't too bad.
I am flying in on southwest and leaving an hour later on delta. Do I need to check in and go through tsa again? Or can I stay in the airport and go directly to my gate?
You will have to claim your bags, take them to Delta, re-check them and go through security. You don't realistically have enough time. Without checked bags you still have to go through security again, but maybe you might have a chance if everything goes perfectly.
I am flying in to LAX from HNL on a Delta fligh tin july and landing at 6:25 and taking off from a Southwest flight at 8:10. Will this be enough time to get my bags from check and recheck them for the southwest flight?
That should be just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
I am traveling on Delta airlines from Dallas to LAX into terminal 6 and leaving Delta LAX to HNL at terminal 5 with only an hour layover. Will we need to go through TSA again or can we go straight to the gate?
You can go straight to your gate.
I am arriving to LAX via southwest at 8:45 am. I am then flying using American airlines from LAX to Hawaii that departs at 10:50 am. We are checking bags. Do we have enough time to claim our bags from southwest and then re-check them at American airlines? If so, what is the best way to save time doing this so that we don't miss our flight to Hawaii?
That is just enough time if everything goes perfectly. You will have to carry your bags all the way from Terminal 1 to Terminal 4. All you can do is hope your first flight is on-time and hurry once you get your bags.
Hi there, hoping someone can help... I'm flying from JFK to Sydney in a couple of weeks and my travel agent has me connecting through LAX (Delta flights).

On my itinerary, it looks like I'm on flight DL41 for both legs and that there is a 1 hour stop in LAX on the way through. However, on my eticket it looks like I'm on separate flights (first on DL475 from JFK-LAX and then on DL41 from LAX-SYD). DL475 arrives at LAX (Terminal 5) at 9:50pm. DL41 departs from LAX at 10:50pm.

Will this give me enough time to make my connecting flight to Sydney? It's only an hour, but I'm not sure if it's a refuel or if the agent has booked two separate legs.

I'm an Australian passpory holder. If anyone could give me some advice, it would be much appreciated!!

Many thanks,

Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do in LAX is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. There is no US Immigration when leaving the US.
I'm arriving at LAX on Hawaiian Airlines at 5:00am on July 1st and have a flight on Delta to LAS that departs at 7:15am. I will have to get a bag at baggage claim and check it in for the Delta flight. What is the fastest way to navigate this?
The fastest way is to just claim your bags and run to your departure terminal. You will arrive in Terminal 5 and depart from Terminal 2 or 3.
