  • Connection Question...is this possible?

    I am flying from Honolulu to LAX on US 1231 at 3:38pm and my next flight on UA 1960 leaves at 4:15pm. This is only a 37 minute layover! Is there enough time to change planes and catch my second flight?

     

    Are both flights on United? If so then yes, that is enough time if the first flight arrives on-time. All United gates are connected in Terminals 7 and 8.

    Hi I have a Southwest flight arriving at T1 at 10:45am with checked bags. I have a China Southern flight that will be leaving at 12:40pm from TBIT. Does TBIT have a dedicated PreCheck line to go through security? Is it Doable? How? Thanks.

     

    The TBIT does not have a precheck lane because none of the airlines there participate in Precheck. This will be very difficult and depends on your Southwest flight arriving on-time and your bags coming out quickly.

     

    Thank you. What if I change my flight arriving T1 at 9:30a instead of 10:45a. Will it be more doable and not rushing?

     

    Yes, that would be much better.

    Hello , I have a flight from oak-lax that arrives at terminal 2 at 11:25pm and then I have a flight from lax-mex terminal 3 at 12:30 am will this be enough time ? I only have a carry on bag

     

    No flights from Oakland arrive in Terminal 2 and no flights to Mexico City depart from Terminal 3. What airlines are you flying?

     

    Oak-lax spirit airlines , lax-mex volaris

     

    You will arrive in Terminal 3 and depart from Terminal 2. You have just enough time as long as your Spirit flight arrives on-time.

    I have the following connection. Anyone think I will have issue for catch the connection? AA 5971 SFO-> LAX arrive at LAX at 9:42AM at T4 AA 183 LAX->PVG(Shanghai) depart at 11:30 from T4 or TBIT Thanks.

     

    You will arrive in the T4 Remote terminal and depart from T4. All you have to do is take the shuttle from the remote terminal to the main part of the terminal. You should have plenty of time if your flight from SFO is on-time.

     

  • Enough Time From Terminal 7 to Terminal 2

    Flying from Chicago to LAX. Arriving United in Terminal 7 & connecting to Hawaiian Terminal 2 on the same ticket. I have 1 hr 40 min layover. Would it be better to walk or take shuttle time wise? The best route if I walk? And finally does this seem like it is enough time? Thank you.

     

    It's fastest to walk. You can walk straight across the parking garages from 7 to 2. You should have enough time.

    Flying United SFO-LAX arriving 9.45pm, United flight 10:40pm LAX-SYD. Are they in the same area of the terminal more or less? Can I make the transfer in the 15-20mins in time for boarding? This is a proposed flight plan from United. Also would bags be likely to make it?

     

    Yes, they are all in Terminal 7/8 where are connected inside security. Yes, you can make this connection if your first flight is on-time.

    hello, i am flyin gin from \calgary canada on air canada terminal 2 then connecting to san diego on united at terminal 8. will i need to get my bags and recheck them for the united flight?

     

    If both of your tickets are on the same reservation you will not have to claim your bags in LAX. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Calgary.

    Our Qantas flight from Mel - Lax arrives at approx 6.35am . What would be a reasonable time frame to get to Terminal 1 to check in for a Southwest flight to SFO flexible with flight family of 4 with 2 small 6 y.o. children

     

    I wouldn't book anything earlier than 9:35 AM.

    I am flying to LAX from Orlando FL on Delta and then transferring to Cathay Pacific for a flight to Manila Philippines. Is the luggage transfer post security? How much time should I have?

     

    No, you will have to exit terminal 5, walk to The International and go through security. If you have checked bags and are on two separate itineraries you will have to transfer your bags yourself too. If you are on one reservation I recommend 90 minutes to 3 hours. If you are on two separate reservations I recommend 3 hours.

    Hi, I am flying from New Orleans to Maui, transiting in LAX for 2hrs 05mins. Flying Delta for MSY-LAX, then Hawaiian LAX- Maui. Do I need to change terminals, and is that enough time? Thanks heaps!

     

    Yes you will arrive in terminal 5 and depart from Terminal 2. You have barely enough time.

    Hi, Flying in on Air New Zealand at 1455, then transferring to Alaska Air for a flight out at 1735 to Portland. Enough time for this or book the next flight out at 1940?

     

    I would book the 1940 flight if you are booking two separate reservations.

    Hi, hoping you can shed some light on the transit times. I''ll be flying MEL to LAX with Qantas arriving 06:35. My next flight will then be LAX to MEX CITY with Aeromexico at 09:15 the same day. The flights are on 2 separate different tickets. Will 2hrs40mins be enough time to get between the two flights including transferring my bags and rechecking in? Cheers thanks.

     

    That's barely enough time if the Qantas flight is on-time and everything goes smoothly with immigration, baggage, claim and customs. Aeromexico uses Terminal 2.

    I have a fligth from Lax to DFW and then a connecting flight to SJO. Same reservation and ticket. Since Lax to Dallas is domestic flight but final destination is international which Lax terminal should I go? Are the bags going all the way to Sjo or they need to be rechecked in Dallas? Thanks!

     

    Assuming both flights are on American, you go to Terminal 4 to check in, just like any other American Airlines flight. You won't have to do anything with your bags in DFW. There is no US Customs when leaving the US.

    Hi, I am looking at buying a flight with Alaskan departing SJD (Mexico) at 12:05 PM, landing LAX Terminal 6 at 2:39 PM. Onward flight would be at Bradley at 4:50 PM. Backpacker, so I would only have a carry-on. No checked luggage. Planning to check-in online for everything with printable boarding pass. Doable? How?

     

    Yes, should be doable, with no checked baggage you should be able to get through US Immigration and Customs pretty quickly, then exit T6 and walk to the International Terminal and through security. It's obviously somewhat risky if the flight from Mexico is delayed, but this should be doable with no checked baggage.
