Hi, I'm connecting in LAX from Atlanta to Vancouver BC. No checked bags just carry on luggage. I have 1hour and 50 min. Is there any reason to worry about making my flight or any tips on what to expect?
If everything is on the same reservation that is enough time.
I am traveling from San Diego to Maui through Delta airlines. My flight dl5680 leaves San Diego at 4:20 pm and reaches LAX at 5:15 pm and my connecting flight from LAX to Maui is at 5:59 pm. My question is that is 44 minutes at LAX is sufficient to catch the flight to Maui?
Yes, that is possible but doesn't leave much time to spare if the first flight is delayed.
I will be arriving at LAX on an American Airlines flight July 24 that will come into terminal 4, connecting to an American Eagle flight leaving from terminal 5. I have only 45 minutes to connect. Can I make it and what is the fastest way to get from one terminal to the other and avoid addition security check lines?
There is a tunnel that connects T4 and T5 inside security. You have enough time if the first flight is on-time but you have no time to spare.
Hello, We will be arriving at TBIT (international arrival on Virgin Australia flight from Melbourne) at 9am and have a connecting flight (Air Canada but code shared by Virgin Australia) in Terminal 6. Do we have to collect our checked bags once we land prior to boarding the Air Canada connecting flight? Or do they automatically get sent to the Air Canada flight? We are due to land at 9am at TBIT and the connecting flight in T6 is due to take off at 11:45am. Is this enough time? Your advice will be gratefully received. Thank you in advance. Liz.
Yes, you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, go to Terminal 6 and through security. You should have enough time.
