  • Southern China Airlines Transit in LAX
    Nov 24, 2015
    2
    I'm flying Southern China Airlines from Jakarta to San Francisco, transit in Los Angeles. Should I claim my lugages in LAX and check in to the connecting flight to San Francisco (CS Airlines, operated by Delta) or they will be checked through by SC airlines to the connecting flight. I will appreciate if somebody can give me some information.

     

    In LAX you will arrive in the International Terminal, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, follow the signs for connecting passengers, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then exit the international terminal and walk to your right two buildings until you get to Terminal 5, and then go through security.

     

    Thanks for your information.

    I am arriving via United at terminal 7 8:08 p.m.departing for Australia via Quantas at 10:15 p.m. with no checked bags. What is fastest way from terminal 7 to international terminal? Thanks.

     

    The fastest way between terminals is to walk. You have enough time as long as your United flight arrives on-time.

     

  • Please explain arriving in LAX on domestic flight.

    Any help would be great. I am arriving in domestic flight to LAX with my teenage daughters and 9 bags for a mission trip. We arrive at 5:45 pm. We have separate tickets for Air New Zealand. Would someone explain the process here step by step? Flight from Air NZ leaves at 8:55. Not sure if Atlanta is able to check bags on through even if I have that boarding pass. If we have to get our luggage are there people to pay that can take our baggage around to the other terminal? Any other helpful hints would be great. Thank you!

     

    Sometimes there are porters available but often there are not. You can rent a cart and push it from your arrival terminal (5 if you are flying Delta from Atlanta), to the International Terminal.

     

  • Connecting Flights in LAX to LAS, do I need to recheck my luggage?

    Im flying from the Philippines to LAS with 2 hour 30 min Layover at LAX. Do I need to claim and recheck my luggage?

     

    Yes, you will claim your bags, go through US Immigration, go through US Customs, re-check your bags if they are tagged through to LAS, then go to your departure terminal and go through security.

    I couldn't find any good flights so I booked a flight from PDX to LAX I get there at 11:17 and I have a complete separate flight on volaris at 2:50 do you think I'll make it? It's international and do I have to go through security again? I'm checking a bag.

     

    Your Volaris flight will depart from Terminal 2. There are no flights from Portland that arrive in Terminal 2, so you will have to go through security again in Terminal 2. You should have enough time.

    Arriving from ZIH 6:10p AS Terminal 6. I have to get to terminal 4 for AA flight at 7:25. Checked luggage only and Global Entry. Can I use the connecting tunnels without have to clear TSA in T4?

     

    You will be outside security once you clear US Customs. You should then walk to T4 and go through security there.

     

  • Retrieve or check through on connecting to Sydney?

    I am flying United to LAX and Qantas to Sydney with a 4 hour layover. The airlines are not partnered but my ticket is linked. Best to check all the way through from start or retrieve in LA? I have had my luggage delayed in the past. And if the first flight is delayed, what is best? Thanks

     

    I would have your bags checked through to Sydney, then you won't have to worry about them in LAX. 4 hours should be plenty of time. Your flight would have to be heavily delayed for this connection to become problematic.

    I am flying into LAX on the 29th at 7:25PM from Taipei via EVA airways, and have a connecting flight on JetBlue at 10:30PM. Is the ~3 hours enough to clear customs and get through security? I will be travelling on a single ticket, booked through a travel agency.

     

    Yes, that should be plenty of time.

    arriving at 7:30am to LAX on delta and wanting to book a 9:30am flight to cancun...is there anyway i can make this??

     

    What airline is the second flight on? Will you have checked bags?

     

    Second flight will be United I'll have checked bags

     

    This will be difficult. You'll have to hope your first flight is on-time. Claim your bags from Delta in T5, Run with them to T7, re-check them with United, and go through security.

    Landing at LAX 6:60 on QF309 with an AA connection to miami at 9:00am. Bookedon separate tickets. Is this enough time.

     

    No such time as 6:60, but I think that should be enough time if you mean 6:00 or 6:30.

     

    Sorry meant 6:50am. Is this enough time? Approximately 2 hrs to make the connection. Thanks for the reply

     

    And will have checked baggage

     

    That should be barely enough time.

  • Connecting southwest airlines to air New Zealand

    Hoping someone can tell me if this connection is too tight. We are flying into southwest terminal at 815pm and have to depart on air New Zealand at 945pm. Is an hour and 30 minutes enough time to collect our checked bags from southwest and get our bags checked and onto our air New Zealand flight? Thanks!

     

    It would be very difficult. I would try to get an earlier flight in to LAX.

     

  • RECHECK BAGS?

    Flying into T4 on American and leaving T2 on Hawaii air. The flight was all booked through American. I knew it was not a non-stop, but no idea I may have to re-check bags and go through security again??? Is this correct?

     

    If your flight on American is domestic and you purchased the tickets together then you will not have to re-check your bags. However, you will have to go through security in T2.

     

    Thank you, that is not soooo bad then :)

     

  • Terminal 4 to Terminal 7

    I am arriving on AA from DFW at terminal 4 and connecting to UA to HNL at terminal 7. How long will it take to walk and will I have to go through security again at terminal 7? I saw in another post that there is a tunnel at terminal 4 which just opened. Will that take me to terminal 7?

     

    Yes, there is a tunnel from T4 to T5 and T5 to T6, then T6 is connected by walkways to T7 and T8. However, if you have checked bags and you purchased separate tickets that's no use to you because you will have to claim your bags and take them to T7 to check with United. Outside security it's a 10 minute walk from T4 to T7

     

    Thank you very much for your response. I will not have luggage and I will pre-print my boarding passes. Is there a sign that will direct me to the tunnel in T4? And is the tunnel inside security? Or do I still have to exit and go thru the TSA checkpoint again? Thank you again for your help!

     

    The tunnel is inside security. The signs will probably say "to Terminal 5" or "To Terminal 6". I haven't seen it personally myself.
