  • Connecting delta flight
    May 20, 2016
    I land in LAX from ORL through delta & have 35 minutes to get to a connecting flight through delta for HNL. Will I be safe since it should be in the same terminal?


    As long as your flight from Orlando is on-time you should be OK.


  • Connecting Air Tahiti Nui to Jetblue domestic
    May 19, 2016
    Hi, we are arriving at 10:15AM on an Air Tahiti Nui flight from Papeete to LAX, and hoping to make a 12:35PM Jetblue flight to JFK. Is this adequate time? We both have Global Entry.


    With Global Entry I think you'd have a chance.


    Thank you! I'm nervous about cutting it close, but with such a long trip home , I also don't want to spend four hours at LAX.


  • Connecting flights at LAX
    May 19, 2016
    I am flying from Chicago to Maui via United and have to change planes at LAX to another United flight. Is this usually done in the same terminal or will I have to rush to a different terminal? I don't have much time between flights.


    All United flights are in terminals 7 and 8 which are really just 2 wings of the same building and connected inside security. It's a very easy connection.




  • T4 connecting to T2
    May 19, 2016
    Hi, we are arriving on AA around 6:55am from HNL at T4 and connecting to Aeromexico to CUN at T2 with 2hr 20min layover. Tickets bought through Orbitz under 1 reservations. Is this enough time? Do we have to pick up checked baggage and recheck? Go through security? What's the best way to get from T4 to T2? Thank you.


    Your bags will be transferred for you. You will have to go to Terminal 2, get your Aeromexico boarding passes if AA can't issue them in HNL, and go through security. The best way is to run straight across the parking garages.


  • Delta terminal distance to Alaska terminal?
    May 18, 2016
    We are arriving in lax on delta, June 1st and have 1he. 50 min to find an Alaska terminal. How hard?


    You will arrive in Terminal 5 or 6 and depart from Terminal 6. They are connected inside security by a tunnel.


  • Connections from terminal 5 to terminal B
    May 18, 2016
    I have a Delda flight From HNL that arrive in LAX terminal 5 at 19.55, and a a flight to Paris CDG at 21.30. The flight are on the same reservation. Is it enough time? Have I to uncheck and check in again baggages?


    You don't have to do anything with your baggage. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate, which you can now do by taking the pedestrian tunnel to Terminal 4 and then the new walkway to the International Terminal.


  • Terminal 6 to Terminal B luggage
    May 17, 2016
    Hello, I am arriving to Terminal 6 with American Eagle, and have a 5 hours layover to take a flight to Madrid departing Terminal B (Iberia). Both flights have the same confirmation number, bought from AA. Do I need to pick my checked luggage and recheck them or they will take it to the next flight? Thank you.


    No, you don't have to do anything with your baggage at LAX.


  • T2 to TB time needed
    May 17, 2016
    I am scheduled to fly in on Aeromexico from Mexico City arriving at 20.30 into Terminal 2. I am departing on Air New Zealand from Terminal Tom Bradley at 22.30 on the same ticket. Will I have enough time to make the connection? Thanks


    No, that is not enough time. Plan on spending the night in LAX and flying to New Zealand the next day or find an earlier flight to LAX.


  • Bradley International to T8
    May 17, 2016
    Connecting from United London flight to BI to United flight to PSP on Wed, May 25. Is 3 1/2 hours enough time to clear customs and shuttle to T8?


    United's flight from London arrives in Terminal 7, not the International terminal. You have enough time.


  • Arriving T7 and departing T2
    May 17, 2016
    Arriving United T7 at 9:13am and departing T2 VirginAmerican at 10:30am with a dog on June 21 (Tuesday). Booked separately so I can still change first leg if I wont make it through airport. Thoughts anyone??


    Virgin America does not use Terminal 2. They use Terminal 3. That's definitely not enough time. You need at least 3 hours.


  • MCI - LAX - NRT with 1 Hour between Flights
    May 16, 2016
    On a heavy travel day (Saturday July 2), we are connecting in LAX to NRT all on Delta. Know we will have to change from Terminal 5 to Terminal 6 and this is a legal Delta connection (1 hour) arrival at 9:45 and departure at 10:45. Is this realistic? Luggage will be checked but I assume we will not have to deal with it for this departure.


    July 2 isn't a heavy travel day. Yes, that is realistic - all you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • Connecting from TBIT to T1
    May 17, 2016
    Hi, I am flying from Dubai (DXB) to LAX on Emirates and land at 8pm. I am looking at a connecting flight from LAX to OAK at 10:55pm. Is 2hr 55mins enough time to clear customs, collect baggage and walk to T1 and do the check-in/security or I should be looking at longer connect times?


    I would plan on spending the night in LA.


    How much connect time would you recommend in this case? Around 4-5hours?


    Considering the security delay issues, yes, that's what I'd recommend.


    Thanks for your help. I have moved around my schedule and landing at 2pm in LAX from DXB. I have booked a connecting flight at 6:30 to OAK.


  • Terminal 3 to Terminal 4 - Will I need to go through security again?
    May 17, 2016
    I arrive at LAX terminal 3 and have 54 mins to get to terminal 4. Both flights are AA. What is best way to get to terminal 4 and do I need to go through security again? Thanks for any informationi


    AA does not use Terminal 3. Where are you coming from and where are you going to?


    I am flying into LAX from Chicago on flt#2223 on 5/23. The ticket states arrival at terminal 3 and speaking to the AA customer service they confirmed arrival at terminal 3.


    You will depart from Terminal 3 in Chicago. AA does not use Terminal 3 at LAX. You will arrive in Terminal 4.


  • Transit Time
    May 16, 2016
    I will be reaching LAX from PHX in Term 6 @ 3:14 PM and have to catch Ethihad flight in TBIT @ 4.55 PM. Entire trip is ticketed together, so i dont need to reclaim/checkin luggage in LAX again. Does 1 hr 40 minutes enough for transit from T6 to TBIT?


    That should be enough time IF you take the new secure-side route from T6 to the International Terminal by taking the pedestrian tunnels to T4 and then the walkway to the International Terminal.


  • Terminal 5 to terminal B
    May 16, 2016
    arriving terminal 5 with delta and have AF flight at 325 from terminal B. is this doable?


    sorry. arriving terminal 5 at 215


    Yes, it is possible. You can now go from Terminal 5 to the International Terminal inside security by taking the tunnel to Terminal 4 and then the walkway to the International Terminal.
