    How do I get from Terminal #5 to Terminal #6. Walk Rail ?? Run? LOL

     

    On arrival at T5, go down to the ground /arrivals level, then take the escalator down to the tunnel connecting to Terminal 6, up the elevator and on to security check and to your T6 gate!

    I hope someone can help me here ,I will be arriving from Auckland to LAX in October,Now I understand that I have to clear customs and irrigation and thats all good,but what I want to know is how is security at Terminal 7? I wish to avoid the Nude O Scopes and only proceed through the metal detectors,does anyone have any recent first hand experience that they can pass on to me that would be fantastic, have never flown into LA so the more info I have the better Cheers

     

    I would not worry too much about the 'Nood O Scopes' - they have made improvements where body parts are no longer 'detailed'. However, you quote Terminal 7 (one of nine terminals at LAX) - this must be your connecting terminal, as it only serves domestic flights of Great Lakes & United Airlines. Do open www.ifly.com/lax & open "Terminal Map", then scroll down to the detailed text which should give you a good idea as to 'irrigation' (immigration) procedures and transfer options. Note: Qantas uses T5 & TBIT; Air NZ T2; Cathey Pacific TBIT - Cheers!

    we have 95 mins gap between arrival at LAX from HNL into Terminal 2 (Hawaiin Airlines) and connecting flight from Terminal B to LHR (British Arways). We are a family of 5 and I have been told subsequently that it is tight - we cammot change our tickets. As we are British will it take longer to connect? Will we make it? How much time could we save if we only have carry ons? Why do we have to collect our bags in between flights? I am panicking even though the flight is not until next July. Please help.

     

    Since you are considered a domestic arrival at LAX (only on your return from UK you will be an international arrival & need to go through customs procedure) you can immediately head to the Terminal 2 exit and take the LAX bus Route A on lower arrival level island in front of each terminal, under sign 'LAX shuttle airline connection', which runs every 12-15 mins. Your next stops will be T3, and around the corner to TB (by that time the new Bradley terminal (TB or TBIT) should be completed, being built behind the present one). You simply enter TB and pass security check and you are on to your gate. As to baggage: You need to find out if Hawaiian is transferring your checked bags to British airlines; also check their 'baggage' or 'luggage' listing for their pricing of each bag (which constantly changes). Review their freight rules and charges for comparison. As a general rule, airlines charge a set amount for each of the first 2 bags, not over 50 lbs, with higher charges for each following bag. Note that if Hawaiian does not forward bags to British airlines, you would need to take along your bags and re-check them in at TB. Even with that scenario, you should be able to make your connection on time.

    Do I have to go through TSA security between Terminal 6 and Terminal 7?

     

    When arriving at Terminal 6, head for the baggage / arrivals level, then take the escalator down to the tunnel connecting Terminals 6 & 7; there, go up the escalator, go through security check and on to your connecting gate.

    I'm arrving at United terminal and have to meet friends at the Jet Blue terminal - easiest way to get there - i have trouble walking

     

    On arrival at LAX with United (which uses Terminals 6, 7 & 8) you need to exit your terminal and catch the LAX bus Route A on lower arrival level island in front of each terminal, under sign 'LAX shuttle airline connection', which runs every 12-15 mins. It stops at Terminals 6, 7 & 8, then goes around the bend to Terminals 1, 2 & 3 in that order, taking 25-30 mins. If you need wheelchair assistance you should request the same at least 24 hrs prior to departure from your airline or when making reservations. If that is too late, advise your flight attendant of your need. At Terminal 3 (Jet Blue) approach any airline or airport representative to arrange getting you to the gate.

     

  • 45 min to connect both on Term 5

    45 min layover between Delta flight 2168 to Delta flight 1735. They both are in Terminal 5. Can a person make the flight and how far away is it?

     

    On arrival at LAX Airport look at overhead screens to find your connecting gate, then walk towards it. T5 has gates 51-59.

     

  • how do I get from gate 75B to gate 77
    Sep 3, 2012

    I have an hour between arriving at terminal 7, gate 75B at LA International Airport and getting on board another flight to depart at terminal 7, gate 77. On the map, gates 75B and 77 look very close to each other. Does anyone know how long it takes to walk? Also, do I need to go up two levels from gate 75B to gate 77? Can I take escalators, and are they nearby to gate 75B to take me directly up to gate 77? Many thanks.

     

    At LAX, gate 75B in Terminal 7, as gate 75A to the left and gate 77B & 77A to the right - a few minutes' walk.

     

    Oh, thank you so much. Does that mean that when I emerge from gate 75B after arriving from my flight, I then proceed to my right to gate 77 for my next departing flight? Do I need to go up a couple of floors at gate 77 to the actual departure point?

    Hi , I'm landing virgin atlantic at Terminal 2 2.50PM and depart at 4.05pm Terminal 3. I only have carry on bags. Is this enough time?

     

    At LAX Terminals 2 & 3 are connected (not sure if at post- or pre-security). If exiting T2 and entering T3 you need to go through security check before proceeding to your gate. Either way you have plenty of time.

     

  • connection time / proceedures ?

    We fly in to Terminal 2 Virgin Atlantic from London UK. We then have 90 minutes to get thro immigration / customs & baggage reclaim & then get to Terminal 3 to check in for a connecting Spirit Airlines flight. (Spirit have just emailed me today to say that they have moved their departures to Terminal 2). Question is will we have enough time & is there anyone we can talk to upon arrival from London who may be able to help us speed things up so that we make our connectin check in time ? - Any advice please !

     

    While you are arriving and departing from the same Terminal 2, which has gates 21-28, you would make it easily if Terminal 2 had customs clearance facilities - I cannot see such facility looking at the Terminal 2 Map of LAX. Should in fact you need to go through customs clearance at TBIT, the International terminal, it would surely be a race, as you would need to exit T2 and walk, or take a taxi or the LAX bus Route A on lower arrival level island in front the terminal, under sign 'LAX shuttle airline connection', which runs every 12-15 mins (stopping atT3, then TBIT. Walking: T2 & T3 are connected, TBIT is around the bend to your right - taking you about 10 mins. To find out where you will be processed on arrival, contact LAX at infoline@lawa.org or tel. (310) 646 5252. Also notify your flight attendant of your need to be 'first out' of the plane.

     

  • Terminal 1 to TBIT

    I have a tight connection of 65 minutes to get from US Airways (Terminal 1) to TBIT to make a flight to Fiji on Air Pacific. How do I make it on time? They told me they finish checking customers in an hour before the international flight. Will they let us on if we show up later than that, say 20 to 30 minutes before departure?

     

    On arrival at LAX, Terminal 1 you need to exit the terminal and catch the LAX bus Route A on lower arrival level island in front of each terminal, under sign 'LAX shuttle airline connection', which runs every 12-15 mins. Your next stops will be T2, T3 and TBIT - 3 stops or 7 mins. At TBIT you need to go through passport check, before proceeding to your gate. Check the overhead screens for your connecting gate: Past ticket counters A to F are the escalators (at A & F) leading to the TSA Screening, and past that you have in the center bus gates 107-112 and bus gates 113-118, as well as Gates 101-108 to the left, and gates 119 -123 to the right.

     

  • Sky West to Air France

    Where is Sky West? How to get from there to T2 Air France walking (or bus)

     

    I am unable to give you transfer direction, as LAX has no SkyWest listing under their Airline listings. Use this URL and complete City & Flight # to get your terminal designation. (googling SkyWest - I note that it's an Australian company). If you are an international arrival you need to go first through passport check, pick up your bag and go with it through customs clearance; then re-check-in your bag where indicated (make sure that SkyWest transfers your bags to AirFrance - if not, you need to take your bag to the connecting terminal to check it in at Air France counter, then go through security & on to your gate. To get from terminal to terminal and other details about the terminals, open www.ifly.com/lax - click on "Terminal Map" under QUICK LINKS, and scroll down to the text.

     

  • Alaska to Southwest Connection - 2 hours

    I have two hours between arriving international on Alaska to departing domestic on Southwest. I will need to recheck my luggage after customs. What is the best way to get to terminal 1 from terminal 6 after customs?

     

    You have the option of walking from T6 by crossing the street and passing the parking structures - on opposite side is T2 - T1 is at right. Or you can take the LAX bus Route A on lower arrival level island in front of each terminal, under sign 'LAX shuttle airline connection', which runs every 12-15 mins. - your next stops are T7, T8 and over to T1 - 3 stops or 7 mins. In both instances you need to go through security at T1.

    we have 40 minutes from arrival at LAX (terminal 6) to depart TBIT..both UAL flights - what's the best way of TRYING to make our second flight?will we have to go thru security again?

     

    On arrival at LAX head straight for the ground level and take the escalator down to the tunnel leading to T5; go up the escalator & exit T5; walk to the left passing T4 and around the bend to TBIT; go through security check & on to your gate. (The bus runs the opposite way and comes around only every 12-15 mins). NOTE: Past ticket counters A to F are the escalators (at A & F) leading to the TSA Screening, and past that you have in the center bus gates 107-112 and bus gates 113-118, as well as Gates 101-108 to the left, and gates 119 -123 to the right - and they just opened Gates 124-134A. Look at overhead screens in terminal to find your connecting gate. You need to run.

     

    Are you sure your UA international flight is out of TBIT? Some of the UA international flights depart from Terminal 6 or Terminal 7.

    I have a very tight connection arriving on American terminal 4 and need to get to Alitalia in terminal 2. What is the fastest option to get to terminal 2?

     

    Other than taking a taxi you have only one option: Take the LAX bus Route A on lower arrival level island in front of each terminal, under sign 'LAX shuttle airline connection', which runs every 12-15 mins. Your next stops after T4 will be T5 to T8, then around the curve to T1, & T2 - 6 stops or 15 mins. Count in the time you need to get through security check and on to your gate at T2's gates 21-28.
