  • Can one walk from T6 to TB straight ?
    Jun 11, 2012
    1
    How much time it takes once arrived to T6 to get into Lax bus stop? The LAX bus comes to lower arrival level, right? if I just miss the bus and want to walk to TB from T6 instead of waiting for another bus, can I walk staright forward without any difficulties or any complicated route without going back to basement level at T6 and proceed to T5 through tunnels? Is there straight footpath? In such a case how much time it will take? In map it seams very straight forward. But I am bit scared what would be the situation in real groud? Appreaciate for your help. Thanks in advance.

     

    Note that both of the following choices require you to exit T6 and pass through security check at TBIT (TB) before proceeding to your connecting gate: (a) LAX bus Route A on lower arrival level island (in front of each terminal), under sign 'LAX shuttle airline connection', runs every 12-15 mins; its next stops after T6 will be T7, T8, T1, T2, T3, & TBIT - 6 stops or 15 mins. (b) T6 has a tunnel connecting to T5, but you need to exit T5 walk to the left to T4 next to it, walk around the bend and enter TBIT. That would be at most a 10-minute walk.

     

  • Can I walk directly from terminal 6 to 4
    Jun 11, 2012

    Can I walk directly from terminal 6 to terminal 4? How, and do I have to leave and reenter security?

     

    Take the escalator at T6 down to the tunnel connecting to T5, there, take the escalator up, exit T5 and walk over to T4, where you need to go through security check before proceeding to your connecting gate.

     

  • Secure Connection between T4 and TBIT

    Is "secure connection" between T4 and International Terminal an underground tunnel or an overhead walkway? Does one have to go outside of the building to get to it from T4 baggage claim? Are there easy to follow directional signs?

     

    The connector at LAX between TBIT & T4 is inside security - follow signs. You can also exit TBIT and walk to the right to the next terminal - T4; however, there you would have to go through security check again before proceeding to your gates.

     

    I hope you know how much people who come here appreciate your help. God bless you, and thanks.

     

  • Walking time between Term 6 and term B ?
    Jun 10, 2012

    How much time it would take to walk from terminal 6 to terminal B ? The suttle bus runs in anticlock wise and need to wait for 12-15 minutes. In the map it looks near. I am flying from Seatle, WA via Alaska and connecting to Cathay Pacific and have 1 hr 30 min transit hours, but don't have baggage only carryon. is this time enough to make it?

     

    Indeed the bus at LAX makes the following stops after T6: T7, T8, T1, T2, T3 & TBIT (TB) - 5 stops or about 12 mins. (on top of the waiting time). Walking would involve going down to basement level at T6, using connecting tunnel to T5, exiting T5 and walking to T4 and around the bend to TB. You can make it easily both ways. At TB you need to go through security check before proceeding to your gate.

  • T4 to TBIT in 2 hours
    Jun 10, 2012

    I arrive on AA at T4 at 9:30 PM and depart on Koren Air at 11:30 PM. Can it be done in under 2 hours (preferably without losing one's mind?) I pan to walk from T4 to TBIT. Is it acceptable to come up to the front of the security check line if I have 30 min. left before the departure? Any advice would be much appreciated.

     

    1. Your first concern should be: Does American transfer your checked bags over to TBIT's departure gate - if not, you need to pick up your bag on arrival at LAX & take it with you to TBIT, checking it in there with Korean Air - count on an extra half hour for that. 2. Otherwise, you will have plenty of time - walking from T4 arrival gate to TBIT will take no more than 15 mins; security check at TBIT: add another 40 mins for safety. After security check (and consulting the overhead screens for your departing gate and time) proceed to your gate area at once, following signs.

     

    Thank you very much. It was very helpful.

     

  • terminal 5 to terminal 1

    With 45 minutes to transfer if our plane is on time, can I make it from terminal 5 where the Delta flight lands to terminal 1 where the Delta flight to San Francisco leaves?

     

    On arrival at LAX at T5 you need to be getting off the plane real fast, exit terminal, then board 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 Terminals 6, 7, 8 & 1 - 4 stops or 10 mins. AtT1 you need to go through security check again before proceeding to your gate.

     

  • Getting to the Delta Crown Room

    My Mother is flying from San Jose to LAX on Continental/United & has an 8 hr. wait until flying to EWR. I'm not sure what terminal she will be arriving in, it looks to be T6, 7 or 8. I want to get her to T5 (Crown Room). Is there an easy way & will she have to go through security to do this?

     

    1. There is no Continental any more - merged into United, which uses Terminals 6, 7 & 8 - T6 has gates 60-69; T7 7077; T8 80-88. 2. T5 has access to Delta Crown Room Club by stairway (next to McDonald's) - you have to make sure that your mother can use this facility, as she is flying with United. T5, 6 & 7 are connected by an underground tunnel; T7 & T8 connect by walkway. In either case she will have to leave the secured area and when returning to departure terminal go through security check again.

     

  • From Bradly - terminal 7 united
    Jun 7, 2012

    Is posible to travel from Bradly terminal to terminal 7 and stay after security? And what about my suitcases? ( i fly from Frankfurt-LaX- Honolulu)

     

    1. As an international arrival at LAX, you need to go through passport control, pick up your bag, go though security clearance and re-check-in your bag. Do make sure before departure that your first airline transfers your bags automatically at LAX to your connecting airline - not all airlines do - in which case you would need to claim your bag, exit Bradley terminal, take a taxi to T7 - as the bus would not accommodate more than 1 bag. 2. If your airline transfers bags, you exit Bradley terminal and board the blue-marked LAX bus route A on lower arrivals level island in front of TBIT, under sign "LAX Shuttle Airline Connection", which runs every 12-15 mins, making its first stop at T4, proceeding to T7 - 4 stops or 10 mins. At T7 you need to go through security check before proceeding on to your gate.

     

  • Skywest to Delta Connection

    I have a 45 minute connection at LAX between a Skywest flight and a Delta flight. Will they both be served by the Delta terminal? Can I make a connection that close?

     

    LAX did not specify Skywest location; however, look at your ticket to see what gate you arrive at / depart from: Delta is in Terminal 5 with gates 50-69; if your connecting flight is from another terminal - open www.ifly.com/las and click on Quick Links' "Terminal Map" - moving screen below the map will give you each terminal's gates and transfer options.

     

  • Transit time between Terminal 8 & 6

    Can I walk from Terminal 8 to Terminal 6? Do I have to exit security at Terminal 8 and then clear security again at Terminal 6? I have a 30 min connection time - is that enough time?

     

    At LAX you have really only one option - to exit T8, to over to T7, take escalator down to the tunnel connecting to T6, go up and through security check and on to your gate. Hurry - 30 mins is extremely short.

    Hello, we are going to fly from London to Honolulu with a transfer in Los Angeles. We are arriving at terminal 4 and departuring to Honolulu from terminal 4, too. If we land in Los Angeles, do we need to take out our baggage and handle it again or do we take out our baggage only in Honolulu?

     

    Yes, at LAX you need, on arrival, go through passport check, pick up bags, go through customs clearance and re-check-in bags. If you arrive by Qantas airlines, you will be picked up by special shuttle to the international terminal (referred to as Bradley, TBIT or TB)for customs clearance whereupon you will use the secure connector back to Terminal 4 for your connecting flight, or simply exit TBIT and walk to the right to the next terminal, go through security check and on to your connecting gate.

     

  • flying in and leaving same terminal

    flying into terminal 7, have to pick up a pet, then check back in at terminal 7 again about 2 hours later to return home. Can I leave terminal 7, pick up pet on ground level right there, then just check in at upper level?

     

    When picking up your dog inquire where to re-check him in. In between, you may want to take dog to pet relieve area prior to re-checkin. Note that the dog must stay in kennel inside terminal). After you re-checked in your dog, you need to go through security check again. This applies only if you arrive and depart from the same terminal.

     

  • UNITED FLT FROM MEXICO TO VA BRISBANE

    I have a flt arriving from Mexico on United airlines Terminal 7 and have 3 hrs between flt to Australia at Terminal 3. I also have to visit Security at Terminal 3 to pick up items left on outbound flt. Would it be quicker to run/walk rather than wait for connection bus???

     

    As an international arrival at LAX, you need to go through passport control, pick up bags, go through customs clearance & recheck-in your bags (a 35-50 min. procedure. Walking is not recommend, as you would need to navigate the parking structures located between the two sides of the U-shaped terminal arrangement. As you have plenty of time, take the blue-marked LAX bus route A on lower arrivals level island in front of TBIT, under sign "LAX Shuttle Airline Connection", which runs every 12-15 mins, makes the following stops after T7: T8, T1, T2, T3 - 4 stops or 10 mins. You need to go through security check at T3.

     

  • Transiting from terminal 5 to 3

    I have 2hrs and 10mins to transit from terminal 5 to 3 and check in. Is it quicker to take the shuttle or walk? And if walking, what is the easiest route? Thanks.

     

    You have two options at LAX to get from Terminal 5 to T3 - (a) exit T5, go left to T4, proceed around the bend to the Bradley Terminal, and continue around the bend to T3 - at most 15 mins; (b) if taking the shuttle bus: 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 stops after T5 will be T6 - T8, around the bend to T1, T2 & T3 - 6 stops or 15 mins. In both instances you need to go through security check at T3.

    I will coming to LAX and need to transfer between terminal 4 and 6. Is there a secure way of going so that I don't have to go throught security again?

     

    At LAX you have 2 options to get from T4 to T6; either one necessitates your exiting T4 and go through security again at T6. (a) You can walk from T4 to T6 (T5 & T7 area also connected by tunnel); or (b) 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.
