  • Flight connection, domestic to international, separate tickets
    Feb 18, 2017
    I have a domestic flight via Delta arriving in LAX at 11:00pm booked separate from my international flight out of China Airlines at 1:05am. I will not have any checked luggage. Will that be enough time to walk to TBIT, check in at the counter, and go through security?


    Yes, that should be enough time if the Delta flight is on-time.


  • American Airlines domestic connection
    Feb 17, 2017
    I have 55 minutes to make an American Airlines connection at LAX and will need to change terminals. OMA to LAX then LAX to HNL. I have never flown through LAX. Is 55 minutes enough time to make the connection?


    Yes, that's enough time if the flight from Omaha is on-time.


  • Best Airline for El AL Connection to Tucson
    Feb 17, 2017
    Will arrive on El AL at 7:30 am and want to know which terminal would be the closest and take the least time to get to if we are flying to Tucson, AZ...


    American's terminal is the closest and can provide you other options to get there if you are late arriving by connecting through Phoenix.


    Does it make a difference if the AA flight is American Eagle? Which terminal would it be? And thank you for the answer.


    For American Eagle flights you go to Terminal 4 and then after security there is a bus that takes you to a little building called the American Eagle Remote Terminal where your flight will depart.


    Thank you!

    Landing from SYD in LAX on Virgin Australia (booked through Delta) connecting to a Delta flight to ATL. We have 1 hour and 45 minutes between flights...enough time to get luggage, and clear customs and immigration and security?


    Yes, that is just enough time if everything goes smoothly.


  • Is 3 hours enough?
    Feb 16, 2017
    I'm flying in from Australia and have 2hr 55 minutes to connect to my domestic flight to Orlando. I'm flying Virgin Australia from Australia and connecting to a Virgin America flight to Orlando. There is literally only one flight for me to go on through Virgin and hence my conundrum.


    Are both flights on the same reservation or two separate reservations? Virgin America and Virgin Australia aren't related except the name. But yes, it should be enough time.


  • Flying from pdx to lax
    Feb 15, 2017
    Hi I am flying from pdx to LAX I am going to China ester air 2hr you think I have time I have no bag to check in only carry on?


    What airline are you flying from Portland? That should be enough time if your first flight is on-time.


  • Terminal 7
    Feb 14, 2017
    I am flying United to LAX terminal 7 and have connection 37 min from Terminal 7 to Honolulu. What is the fastest way to do it?


    Walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. It shouldn't take more than 8 minutes to get between gates.


  • layover time
    Feb 14, 2017
    Hi, am arriving from AKL into LAX with AA, is 1hr 45 mins enough time before connecting to LAS with AA? Issued as one ticket. Returning will arrive in LAX from CLT on AS6603, have only 1hr 15 mins to connect to AA flight back to AKL - is this possible?


    That is just enough time if everything is on-time. Yes, your connection on the way back is possible. Note that your flight from Charlotte will also be operated by American so all you have to do in LAX is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


    Thanks! What about immigration etc for leaving the US on our way home - won't we have to pass through it in LAX somewhere? Also, on the way in to the US, will we have to collect our bags in LAX and check them in again for the LAS flight? All flights are on the same AA ticket so was hoping they would be checked through from AKL to LAS.


    On your way to Las Vegas you will have to claim your bags to go through US Customs in LAX and then immediately re-check them at the re-check desk. There is no US Immigration or Customs when leaving the US.


  • Do I have enough time
    Feb 13, 2017
    Flying with United Airlines on both parts of the journey from Sydney to Denver I land at LAX at 6.30am at Terminal B. The flight to Denver leaves Terminal 7 at 8.15am. 1h 45m layover. Is this enough time?


    That's just enough time if everything goes smoothly. If you are delayed and miss your connection, United has frequent flights from LAX to Denver.


  • Question about time
    Feb 12, 2017
    Hi, I have a flight from GSP to Honolulu with a 1 hour layover in LAX. I am flying American Airlines on both flights. Will the 1 hour be enough? Will I have to switch terminals? Thanks!


    I meant I ATL not GSP


    Yes, that is enough time. You may have to switch terminals as American runs domestic flights from both terminals 4 and 6, but they are connected inside security by a pedestrian tunnel.

  • Connection concerns
    Feb 12, 2017
    Hi I am flying in from Brisbane on QANTAS at 6am and am hoping to catch a connecting flight to Edmonton (via Seattle) on Alaska airlines (terminal 6) at 8am. Is there an express lane at customs and will I have enough time? Thank you


    No, there is no express lane at US Immigration or Customs. Are both flights on the same reservation or is it two separate reservations?


    2 separate reservations


    Then that will be pretty difficult if you have checked baggage since you will have to transfer it to Alaska Airlines yourself.


  • Connecting flight worries
    Feb 10, 2017
    I have a flight on Air Canada landing at LAX at 9:02pm in terminal 2. I need to get to International Terminal B for my flight at 11:30pm. Is that enough time? I know i have to go through security to go out and then in. But do I have to get my checked bags as well?


    What airline are you flying out of the International Terminal? Are both flights on the same reservation or is it two separate reservations?


    Fiji airways


    So it's two separate reservations? If that's the case then you will have to claim your checked bags from Air Canada in Terminal 2, re-check them in the International Terminal with Fiji Airways, and go through security.


  • Fiji to ORD through LAX
    Feb 10, 2017
    Hi. We're flying from NAN-Fiji to ORD with a long layover in LAX. It's one booking with Fiji Airways, but the LAX-ORD flight is American-5012. How do we transfer from the International terminal to the American domestic terminal? Do we have to collect luggage and then recheck at the domestic terminal?


    You will arrive in the International Terminal, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then go through the new security checkpoint in the International Terminal and walk through the new connector building to Terminal 4 where you depart.


  • Time in customs
    Feb 9, 2017
    How long does it typically take to get thru customs in LAX coming from New Zealand?


    Immigration and customs itself will probably take 30-45 minutes.
