I am flying United to LAX terminal 7 and have connection 37 min from Terminal 7 to Honolulu. What is the fastest way to do it?
Walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. It shouldn't take more than 8 minutes to get between gates.
Hi, am arriving from AKL into LAX with AA, is 1hr 45 mins enough time before connecting to LAS with AA? Issued as one ticket.
Returning will arrive in LAX from CLT on AS6603, have only 1hr 15 mins to connect to AA flight back to AKL - is this possible?
That is just enough time if everything is on-time. Yes, your connection on the way back is possible. Note that your flight from Charlotte will also be operated by American so all you have to do in LAX is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Thanks! What about immigration etc for leaving the US on our way home - won't we have to pass through it in LAX somewhere?
Also, on the way in to the US, will we have to collect our bags in LAX and check them in again for the LAS flight?
All flights are on the same AA ticket so was hoping they would be checked through from AKL to LAS.
On your way to Las Vegas you will have to claim your bags to go through US Customs in LAX and then immediately re-check them at the re-check desk. There is no US Immigration or Customs when leaving the US.
Flying with United Airlines on both parts of the journey from Sydney to Denver I land at LAX at 6.30am at Terminal B. The flight to Denver leaves Terminal 7 at 8.15am. 1h 45m layover. Is this enough time?
That's just enough time if everything goes smoothly. If you are delayed and miss your connection, United has frequent flights from LAX to Denver.
Hi, I have a flight from GSP to Honolulu with a 1 hour layover in LAX. I am flying American Airlines on both flights. Will the 1 hour be enough? Will I have to switch terminals? Thanks!
I meant I ATL not GSP
Yes, that is enough time. You may have to switch terminals as American runs domestic flights from both terminals 4 and 6, but they are connected inside security by a pedestrian tunnel.
Hi, I have a flight from GSP to Honolulu with a 1 hour layover in LAX. I am flying American Airlines on both flights. Will the 1 hour be enough? Will I have to switch terminals? Thanks!
Hi I am flying in from Brisbane on QANTAS at 6am and am hoping to catch a connecting flight to Edmonton (via Seattle) on Alaska airlines (terminal 6) at 8am. Is there an express lane at customs and will I have enough time? Thank you
No, there is no express lane at US Immigration or Customs. Are both flights on the same reservation or is it two separate reservations?
2 separate reservations
Then that will be pretty difficult if you have checked baggage since you will have to transfer it to Alaska Airlines yourself.
I have a flight on Air Canada landing at LAX at 9:02pm in terminal 2. I need to get to International Terminal B for my flight at 11:30pm. Is that enough time? I know i have to go through security to go out and then in. But do I have to get my checked bags as well?
What airline are you flying out of the International Terminal? Are both flights on the same reservation or is it two separate reservations?
Fiji airways
So it's two separate reservations? If that's the case then you will have to claim your checked bags from Air Canada in Terminal 2, re-check them in the International Terminal with Fiji Airways, and go through security.
Hi. We're flying from NAN-Fiji to ORD with a long layover in LAX. It's one booking with Fiji Airways, but the LAX-ORD flight is American-5012. How do we transfer from the International terminal to the American domestic terminal? Do we have to collect luggage and then recheck at the domestic terminal?
You will arrive in the International Terminal, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then go through the new security checkpoint in the International Terminal and walk through the new connector building to Terminal 4 where you depart.
How long does it typically take to get thru customs in LAX coming from New Zealand?
Immigration and customs itself will probably take 30-45 minutes.
i have a 58min layover and i need to get from termial 4 to 5? do i have time?
Are your flights on the same reservation or two separate reservations? What airlines are you flying? Where are you flying from and to? Do you have checked bags?
