We arrive into LAX on a Virgin flight from Australia at 9:00am. We are then flying on to NYC - how long should we allow between flights for the transfer? Is 3 hours enough? Also if we book a domestic Virgin flight, will they check our bags all the way through (we used frequent flyer points to book the SYD > LAX part, hence why we will have two separate bookings). Thanks
3 hours is what I recommend. You will have to transfer the bags yourself since it's two separate bookings (you'd also have to claim your bags to bring them through US Customs at LAX anyway).
Hi , I am flying in on AA from NZ landing at 6.25am. My connecting flight to Fort Lauderdale is with Virgin America from Terminal 3 at 10.10am. Is this enough time for immigration and customs etc and to make the flight. Thanks
Mean't to say I am in business class, will this make it quicker?
Yes, that should be enough time. Note that you will have to take your bags yourself to Terminal 3 to re-check them with Virgin America.
Thank you very much for your help.
will i make a connecting flight arriving on United airlines terminal 6 at 10:20 AM and departing on American airlines terminal 5 at 12::35PM out of LAX I still need to claim my luggages and check in to American Airlines
United Airlines no longer uses Terminal 6. They use 7 and 8 and the baggage claim will be in 7. American does not use Terminal 5. They use 4 and 6. You have barely enough time if everything goes smoothly.
I am flying from MSP to LAX on Spirit Airlines landing at 5:57pm and need to go on United to MRY on 6:50 pm. Will that be enough time?
With checked baggage that is pretty much impossible. With no checked bags you'll have to check in to your United flight online before leaving MSP and RUN and hope your Spirit flight is on-time.
I will fly with Virgin America from SFO to LAX and arrive at LAX at 7:59pm. And I need to make a connection with Latam international flight at 9:30pm. Do you thinkI have enough time to make my connection? Any shuttle or transportation that I can take from domestic to international airport? Thank you!
With checked bags on two separate reservations i think that is pretty much impossible.
Hello, I have about 40 mins between flights from Virgin to Southwest. Do you think I have enough time? Also which way should I go in LAX,
You have pretty much no chance of making that connection. Even with no checked bags. You need to change your Southwest flight.
I'm looking at a booking SFO-LAX-PPT (AA+ATN) with a connection time of 51min. Using the new connector between T4 and TBIT (assuming we remain post-security and assuming luggage checks through) -- is that enough time? or should i look for different flights?
If it's the same reservation it's possible but it's really tight. AA isn't able to issue Air Tahiti Nui boarding passes despite the codeshare agreement.
Similar flight. AA booked via travel agent for DFW-LAX 2.25HR layover then LAX-PPT. Sounds like I'll need to check in when I land at LAX? From what I've seen the connector from T4 to Bradley only takes 5-10 minutes so should be OK if the flight is on time to check-in in person before I'm inside an hour of departure.
I am trying to buy my ticket to Thailand. I will be flying with Volaris from Mexico into LAX terminal 2 arriving 7:18pm I have to go through customs, get my bag, go to Tom Bradley terminal check in with Philippine airline for the flight leaving at 11 pm. Will this be enough time to connect flights? Thanks in advance
Yes, that is enough time.
Flying in from Australia on Virgin Australia at 0655am and looking at booking a flight for 1120am on Southwest to San Francisco. Will this be long enough connection time
no problems -- we've arrived LAX on the same Virgin Australia flight and made onward connections on SW in less time
Thanks, I was looking at a shorter time but thought I wouldn't risk it. I will go ahead and book that flight. thanks for your help
I have a domestic flight via Delta from DTW arriving in LAX at 10:10pm booked separate from my international flight out by Cathay Pacific at 11:55am. I try thru checked luggage from DTW.I am not US citizen . Will that be enough time if
1. I no need baggage check?
2. I have to do baggage check again?
Thanks
sorry Cathay pacific 11.55 PM.
Delta won't check your bags through to Cathay. This connection is very difficult, nearing impossible.
Thanks on your response. I asked Delta in Facebook messenger said Delta has Electronic Ticketing Agreements (IET) with Cathay Pacific
then I can Request Through baggage check from DTW.

Whoever answered your question isn't up on current policy. Delta won't check bags through to airlines that aren't SkyTeam partners if the two tickets are on separate reservations.
Sirs, How about if I change to AA arrives LAX 9.43 PM?
