I arrive on Air NZ at TBIT at 7.25pm and have a domestic flight to SFO at 9.40pm. Is this enough time? If I have checked in on line for my domestic flight will I be able to drop my bag after arrivals in TBIT or will I have to check in at United?
If your bags are tagged to SFO you can drop them after clearing customs in the TBIT. Otherwise you have to take them to T7 to check them with United.
I will be arriving on an international flight on Lufthansa, arriving at 5:40 PM and am scheduled to depart on a United domestic flight at 6:45PM. This was the way United offered the flights on their web site when I booked. From what I can tell it looks nearly impossible to make the connection in 1 hour and 5 minutes. I may just go with carry on luggage, and I have Global Entry. Do I have a chance of making the connection, or should I get United to push us to a later departing flight?
With global entry and no checked bags it is possible. Where are you coming from? I don't see any Lufthansa flights that arrive at 5:40 PM.
Arriving LAX Terminal 5 via Suncountry from Minneapolis at 10:50 PM Wednesday night. Leaving via Terminal B (China Airlines) at 1:15 AM. Luggage checked to destination in Minneapolis but need to get Boarding pass from China Airlines in LA. Can anyone tell me the process of doing this and how long it should take. I imagine I need to leave Terminal 5, get to Terminal B, get boarding pass from China Airlines, go back through security to gate?
So will I have enough time to do all of this comfortably in 2 1/2 hours?
You have the process correct. You should have enough time.
I am traveling with my 80 year old and 75 year old sisters, our flight arrives at LAX at terminal 1 at 4:37 and our Spirit airlines connecting flight leaves from terminal 5 at 5:11. How long will it take to get between terminals and what is the best way?
You have absolutely no chance of making that connection. You should not have booked it. You have to walk or take the shuttle from Terminal 1 to Terminal 5 and go through security. If you have any checked bags you will have to claim them and re-check them with Spirit in T5. Again, this is an impossible connection.
