  • Flying in from Frankfurt, connecting to Las Vegas
    May 30, 2016
    Hi, my arrival time is 4.35 PM from Frankfurt with Lufthansa, connecting flight to LAS is 7.41 PM with American Airlines on a different reservation. Is this enough time and how do I best get from TBIT to terminal 4? Thanks very much in advance!


    That should be enough time. The TBIT and T4 are right next to each other - just walk.


  • T3 to TBIT
    May 30, 2016
    I arrive Spirit Airlines from DEN 4.15pm then depart from TBIT at 6.30pm. What is the process for getting to TBIT w/ checked bags? Will this be enough time?


    You will claim your bags from Spirit then take them next door to the TBIT, check them with your International airline, then go through security. You should have enough time if your Spirit flight is on-time.


  • Coming from Sydney to Phoenix via LAX
    May 29, 2016
    I'm arriving from Sydney to LAX before hopping the final flight to Phoenix. I have a few hours but have never crossed the pond. Will I get my bags in LAX and go through Customs and have to recheck everything again at LAX before departing for Phoenix? Thanks!


    I'm in the same boat, going from Melbourne to LA and then to DC. So far everyone online is saying that you would need to recheck your bags and go through customs again.

    What terminal will i be flying into out of? Will this be enough time and will i have to claim my baggage and recheck it in? Thanks


    You will both arrive and depart from the International Terminal. Yes, you will have to claim your bags to go through US Customs, then immediately re-check it.

    Yes, that should be just enough time i everything goes smoothly.

  • Connection - T2 to Bradley
    May 30, 2016
    Hi there, I am planning to arrive at Terminal 2 with Avianca at 20:20 - I have a connecting Qantas flight from Bradley International at 23:20 - is this enough time to clear security, check in etc? Thanks! Miriam


    That should be just enough time if everything goes smoothly.


  • connecting with InterJet flight to Cancun
    May 30, 2016
    I'm arriving on an American Airlines flight from Sydney into LAX at 7.45 am into Terminal B. I've booked a flight with InterJet from LAX to CANCUN that morning leaving at 10.30 am. I'm now worried about the connection, as I've realised I not only need to clear customs and change terminals, but I need to get my bags and recheck it in, and it's an international flight. Do you see any issue here or is this enough time. Thank you.


    you barely have enough time if everything goes smoothly.


  • Time to go for a run between flights?
    May 25, 2016
    I'm transferring through LAX Monday evening, arriving 9:25pm from ATL, departing 1 am through the international terminal. I'd love to be able to stretch my legs between flights. Is there any way I'll have enough time to get outside, run for 30-45 minutes (up and down in front of the terminals is fine), and then make it back through security and into my departure gate in time for the next flight? How bad is the TSA wait these days anyway? And will it be crowded at 10pm or later? Thanks!


  • Transit
    May 30, 2016
    Travelling from SFO to LAX on United Airlines and hoping to select the flight that arrives in LAX at 7:52PM. I have a purchased a flight from LAX to Auckland on American Airlines departing at 10:40PM. This gives approx 2 hours and 40mins between flights, should this be enough time??


    Yes, that should be enough time.


  • Transit Time
    May 30, 2016
    I arriving from Atlanta (Delta: Terminal 5) at 09:25 PM and my international connecting flight is at 11:50 PM (= 2h25mn transit time). I suppose that my checked-in luggage will go through without further check at LAX (security check done at Atlanta Airport). Is that so ? Do I have enough time for the transfer between these two flights ? Thanks for your kind support !


    Yes, that should be plenty of time.


  • Connecting from T5 to International terminal
    May 24, 2016
    Is it possible to go from terminal 5 to International terminal without exiting security?


    Yes, you can take the tunnel to T4 and then the new connector walkway to the International Terminal.


  • BNA to LAX to AKL
    May 30, 2016
    Flying from Nashville on a Monday evening via Southwest and arrive at LAX at 8:55pm. American Airlines flight to Auckland departs at 10:45pm. Is this enough time between flights?!


    It will be very very difficult. You will have to claim your bags, go all the way to Terminal 4, re-check your bags, and go through security.


    We're not checking bags. That should make it easier, no?


    It makes it a little easier.


  • How to transfer from LAX (TBIT) To T3
    May 24, 2016
    I am going to flight from DXB to LAX then connecting flight from LAX to HNL through T3. My arrive time @ LAX(TBIT) is 2pm & departure time from T3 is 6pm. Could you help me HOW to transfer from TBIT to T3 . DO I need to get out the TBIT to T3? DO I need to take out all my luggage when I arrive at TBIT noting that all my reservation made as one ticket issued by emirates airline with Hawaiian airline connecting flight ? Please help me!!!


    Yes, the only way from the TBIT to T3 is to exit the building and walk to the left to T3. Yes, you will have to claim your bags, to go through US Customs, then if they are tagged to HNL, re-check them at the re-check desk in the International Terminal. Also note that Hawaiian Airlines uses T2, not T3.


  • T2 to T7
    May 23, 2016
    I am arriving in terminal 2 (Air Canada) at 5:15 PM and departing in terminal 7 at 7:04 PM. That gives me 1 h 45 min between flights. Is that enough time to get over to terminal 7 and clear security. I only have a carry-on. Should I walk or take the shuttle? If I walk, do I just cut through the middle parking areas? Thanks!


    I suggest walking and cutting through the parking garages. It is possible, but leaves very little time to spare.
