  • Is 90 minutes enough to connect
    Jun 10, 2014
    Im wondering if I have enough time to connect with my flight from LAX to Las Vegas. We are coming in from Puerto Vallarta to LAX and have 90 minutes to clear customs, etc. Both flights are Delta.


  • Customs/Immigration
    Jun 6, 2014
    Any idea how busy customs/immigration are at TBIT around 6:30am, I will be arriving there July 11 and have a connecting flight at T5 approx 3 hrs later

    Do I have enough time if I am coming from Cancun on Volaris and landing at 9.54pm to make it to my flight from LAX to Australia on QANTAS taking off at 11.50pm?


    Is your arrival domestic or international. If international it will be really tough as you probably won't make it to T1 in time for Southwest's bag cutoff.


    Thx very much. No checked luggage. Should have mentioned: Coming into LAX from Kona on American at 6:05 AM (T4) and going on to Southwest flight to DEN at 7:35 AM (T1). If I get off plane by 6:30 and need to be at Southwest gate at 7:00 is there enough time to walk through terminals, not parking garages?


    I'd walk through the parking garages.


  • domestic to international connection
    Jun 11, 2014
    Hi I am arriving on United Express from ABQ at 342pm, I depart on Delta at 638pm for Tokyo, is that enough time to connect... my travel agent is saying it's not a legal connection...


    You could take a train to Termini and spend maybe an hour or 2 there before you would have to come back.


  • Tranfer time between T6 and TBIT
    Jun 10, 2014
    Arriving at T6 from Anchorage at 10.15pm 15/8. Connecting to a China Airlines flight that departs at 01.55 on 16/8 from TBIT. Will I have enough time to make this transfer and flight? These are separate flights so I have to pick up my bags at T6 and get them checked in again at TBIT. Thanks.


    If you bought your tickets together they will be transferred automatically to China Eastern and checked through to MNL and you won't have to claim and re-check them in YVR.


    Thank you so much for the info.


  • Arriving Skywest and departing Air Canada
    Jun 3, 2014
    I will have 1 hr 45 min to make a connection in LAX.. I don't think there is anyway of doing this inside a secure area. Means exiting the building and then shuttle, walk (what do people recommend) and going through security again. to get to Air Canada in terminal 2. What is your suggestions for a smooth transition? This will be about 7 a.m.


  • 1 hour connection time with United
    Jul 22, 2014
    I will be flying into LAX from Denver on a United Airlines flight, then onwards to Narita on a United Airlines flight also. The connection time is 1 hour and 1 minute only. Would that be enough time to make it to the next flight? I believe the terminal for the incoming and outgoing flights are both in terminal 7. Thanks.


    If you're in the same terminal, that should be OK. You'll do int'l check-in in Denver, and then just have to deplane and head to the other gate. If it's another terminal, it'll be tough. Are you sure you aren't heading out from TBIT?


  • Help
    May 31, 2014
    If I am sitting towards back of a 777-ER arriving at LAX (TB) on international flight is 3 hr layover enough to get through customs etc and catch my domestic flight in T5. All flights booked via delta.


  • Connecting flight in one hour.... enough time?
    Jun 4, 2014
    I am travelling from Los Cabos, Mexico to LAX, then connecting to another flight to London Heathrow, I have a layover at LAX of just over an hour, will this be enough time to clear security/ customs and get to the next gate?


    JFK has no T3 - El Al uses Terminal 4. Yes, you have plenty of time to transfer the bags yourself if necessary.


  • DELTA International Flight
    May 29, 2014
    I have only 43 minute layover time at LAX from PHX. I'm departing to Narita with the same terminal (Terminal 5 gate 52 arrival from Phoenix, departure to Narita at gate 69B) a shown in my eTicket. I'll be travelling with Delta all the way. Will I have enough time to move from gate 52 to 69B? Do I need to go to security checkpoint again? Thanks.


  • T7 to T3 connection
    May 29, 2014
    I am reaching LAX by Emirates on T7 at 2:15PM and onward journey to Las Vegas by UA from T3 at 5:10PM. what is the process? Should I collect my checked-in bag myself?


  • Terminal 7 to International Gate
    Jul 22, 2014
    I have about one hour to connect between Terminal 7 to International (ANA airline). Do I need to go thru the security check point again?


    Yes, you'll have to go through a second time if you exit the terminal. Ask your flight attendant on the DEN-LAX flight, they may have an operations-level bus to take you direct to the Int'l Terminal. If so, no security checkpoint.


  • Terminal 2 to Terminal 7
    May 28, 2014
    I have one hour and ten minutes to get from terminal 2 to terminal 7. What is the fastest way? Will I be able to make connection?


  • Air Tahiti Nui to/from Southwest
    May 27, 2014
    We arrive in LAX via Air Tahiti Nui at 10:15 with a connecting flight on SWA at 1:50. Unfamiliar with the process from Tahiti, have I given myself enough time for the entire process? Thank you!


    Yes, you should have plenty of time. You will arrive in the TBIT, go through US Immigration, claim your baggage, and go through US Customs. Then you will have to take your baggage with you to T1 either via the inter-terminal shuttle bus that runs on the lower level or via walking along the curbfront on either the upper or lower level. You would walk to the left as you exit the TBIT (against the flow of traffic). You will then have to check your bags with Southwest, get your Southwest boarding passes, and go through security.


  • DELTA Connecting flight
    May 25, 2014
    I am flying from PHX to Bangkok(BKK) on DELTA. I will arrive at terminal 5 gate 52A, then will depart from terminal 5 gate 68B. I looked at the terminal map, and could not find gate 68B in terminal 5. It's in terminal 6. So, what terminal is exactly gate 68B in? DELTA's flight details always show terminal 5 gate 68B. In case that they are in different terminals. Do I need to exit terminal 5 and go through the TSA checkpoint again? I have only 43 minutes between the flight. Will I have enough time? Thank you for your help!


    Yes gate 68B is in Terminal 6; however, while T5 is exclusively used by Delta - T6 is being used by Alaska, Copa, Great Lakes & United airlines. Do check with Delta again. If you need to connect to T6, you need to take the tunnel connector, reached by escalators from the baggage claim level - then go through security check & on to your connecting gate. No time to waste!
