    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.

     

  • TBIT to Term 2 ( 1hr40mins??)

    I am arriving from Australia to TB , need to transfer to Term 2 for a flight 1hr40min later . Can anyone advise regariding luggage . My airline has told me they will transfer my luggage direct to next flight , but I not sure if I need to collect the luggage or simply proceed thru customs etc . Any help how it would all happen ??Others suggested a min. of 3hrs . HELP

     

    1. At LAX, TB (Bradley Terminal or "TBIT") - is in the center of a U-shaped terminal complex. You have two options to get to T2 - both require you to exit TBIT and go through security check at T2. While walking to Terminal 2 (left of TBIT around the bend, passing T1 - the shuttle bus connecting all terminals runs the opposite way (first T4-T8 and around to T1, & T2: the LAX bus Route A stops on lower arrival level island in front of each terminal, under sign 'LAX shuttle airline connection', and comes around every 12-15 mins, you would have 7 stops taking about 18 mins. 2. As an international arrival, you need to go through passport check, retrieve checked bags, go through customs clearance and - if transferring to another flight - re-check-in bag where indicated (the tag should show layover and final destination Airport Codes). Allow for this procedure 40-50 mins. Add another 15 mins to going through security and on to your gate you would need 98 mins from gate to gate (maximum time) - If possible rebook for a later connection.

    our fights are China Southern Airlines and All Nippon Airways, we will arrived at Tom Bradley International Terminal , next,we will take US Airways ,could you tell me how do we go terminal 1?

     

    If you arrive at LAX via All Nippon Airways, you need to inquire from that airlines if they would transfer your bags to your US Airways departure terminal - not all airlines do, in which case you would have to claim your bags and take them along to your connecting Terminal 1, where you need to check them in at the US Airways counter. 2. As an international arrival in the U.S. you need to go through passport check, retrieve checked bags, go through customs clearance and - if transferring to another flight - re-check-in bag (the tag should indicate layover and final destination Airport Codes). 3. Whether your bags are being transferred, or you need to take them along to T1, you need to exit TBIT (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 - your next stops will be T4 through T8, then around a curve & over to T1 - 9 stops or about 25 mins. (you can also take a taxi) - At T1 you need to go through security check before proceeding to your gate. (Make sure on arrival at Bradley to look at overhead screens for your departure gate and time).

    Hungry, but can't find food. Is it all before security?

     

    While LAX has a great part of their restaurants in the secured area, you can find some in pre-secured areas as well. Open www.ifly.com/lax and click on "Airport Information" which lists under it 'Restaurants, Bars & Shops'. Pick your Terminal & you see what is available and where.

     

  • Terminal B to Terminal 4

    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.

    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.

    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.
