  • Terminal B to Terminal 4
    Aug 8, 2012
    Hi.. I will be travelling reaching LAX terminal B at 1:00 p.m and have a flight to catch from Terminal 4 at 3:05 P.M. As I have to go for custom clearances and recheckin of baggage, is the time b/w flights sufficient? And any tips for getting the things done quickly.


    Make sure that your original airline will transfer your bags to your connecting London flight at LAX - not all airlines do, in which case you would have to take your bag along after customs clearance and check it in in T4 before proceeding to your connecting gate. You arrive at the Bradley terminal (referred to as TB or TBIT). When exiting the terminal, T4 is to your right, just walk over - it takes 5 mins, then go through security & on to your gate. From arrivals gate to departure gate it's at most 70 mins.


  • Cell phone sim cards
    Aug 8, 2012
    Where in TBIT on arrival can I get a US sim card for my cell phone?


    My guess is at the News Stands at gates 102 & 123; Sky phone rental at gates106 & 119,or Hudson news at Departures level. You can call LAX info line at (310) 646 5252.


  • JetBlue-Air China
    Aug 5, 2012
    I arrive on Jet Blue on my way to Beijing and need to know which terminal Air China uses, since I am very short on time and will have to run...please help me map the way


    You arrive at LAX via JetBlue at Terminal 3 - exit the terminal and use the short walkway to Terminal 2, which has gates 21-39. At T2 you need to go through security check before proceeding to your gate.


  • Distance Terminal 4 - gates 42 to gate 3
    Aug 1, 2012
    What is the distance between those two gates?


    At LAX Terminal 4 has gates 42-49; Gate 3 is in Terminal 1. To get from T4 to 1, you need to 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 would be at T5, 6, 7, 8 and T1 - 5 stops or 12 mins. At T1 you need to go through security check before proceeding to your gate.


  • Can I meet a friend?
    Jul 31, 2012
    I'm arriving at TBIT (I'm American and LA is my final destination) and my friend (who is Australian) is flying into Terminal 5 and making a connection to Terminal 3. We are both coming from overseas and will need to go through Customs. Where we could meet to have lunch together?


    1. At LAX, TBIT is nearly in the center between Terminals 5 and 3. It also has the most amenities: Food & drink establishments, as well as shops, are in both the gateway areas, as on the Departure Level. The Arrivals Level has the Arrivals Cafe & La Cantina Bar. 2. Your friend arrives at T5, which is listed for Virgin America departures (it has no customs clearance facility). I suggest you call Virgin at 85-253-8021 to make sure what his arrival procedure is. (i.e., Quantas who uses T4 shuttles arriving passengers to TBIT for customs clearance.) Most likely he will be processed at TBIT.


  • Terminal distance/time
    Jul 30, 2012
    My Daugters have a 43 minute lay over and need to get from Terminal 1 to Terminal 5. Will they have enough time?


    At LAX, your daughters should proceed to the Arrivals level of Terminal, exit the terminal and take (a) 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. Next stops after T1 are T2, T3, TBIT, T4 and T5 - 5 stops or about 12 mins.; OR (b) walk straight out to the parking garage, pass the one behind it and arrive at T7, go down escalator and walk tunnel passing T6 and into T7; take escalator up. In both cases they need to go through security before proceeding to their gate. Time is extremely short & does not allow for flight delay.


  • visting someone at terminal 5
    Jul 28, 2012
    Hello all, I would like to visit with an old friend who is going to be in transit at terminal 5. I live locally will not be traveling myself. Is there anyway i can get in? I don't know if I can get inside without a ticket.


    You can meet your friend on the departures level in front of the TSA screening facility (leading to gates 50-69) or meet him near the currency exchange on the same level.
