    West Jet arrival from Calgary for flight to Melbourne with Qantas

     

    I would want a least 3 hours if on two separate reservations.

    I have a friend from Germany flying from Fort Lauderdale on Spirit Airlines to LAX. She has about 5 hours time there until her next flight, but she has to go through customs to get her next flight ticket and go BACK through customs to get to her plane...is this enough time??

     

    There is no US Customs or Immigration when Leaving the US. She just has to claim her bags from Spirit, check them with her second airline, and go through security. She has plenty of time.

    I'm flying into terminal 2 and I have to catch a connecting flight in terminal 6 can I stay behind TSA security when changing Terminals.

     

    No, you can't. Terminal 2 is not connected to any other terminals inside security. What airlines are you flying?

     

    I'm flying west jet Toronto to Los Angeles then I'm flying American Airlines To Reno Nevada.

     

    I appreciate your help on this matter. Thank You.

     

    Then you will need close to 2 hours between flights.

    We are flying via Charlotte on AA arrive 1850 and then depart via Qantas to Australia at 2205. Do we have too pick up bags go through TSA then to TBIT?

     

    If both flights are on the same reservation you don't have to do anything with your bags. Just take the underground walkways and the connector building from your arrival gate in T4 or 6 and your departure gate in the TBIT.

     

    Thank you ZAP

    Do United flights to Mexico leave from TBIT or Terminal 7/8? If I arrive on SW with 1 checked bag how long should I allow to make this connection to UA flight leaving at 1:10pm in early Dec

     

    All United departures are from Terminals 7 and 8. I would want at least 2.5 hours between flights.

     

  • Connection Inside Security?

    We are traveling on an AA flight arriving remote terminal 6 and will be flying China Southern to Guangzhou. If we only have carry on bags will we be able to connect inside security to the international terminal or will we need to go out of the security area and rescreen at the international terminal?

     

    Yes, you can go directly to your departure gate via the shuttle from the remote terminal and then the underground walkways and connector building. However, if you can't check in online for your China Southern flight you will have to get it from your departure gate.

    best way to get from delta terminal 5 to Tom Bradley Singapore terminal 2

     

    Singapore uses the International Terminal, not Terminal 2. The fastest way is to walk.

     

  • Enough time?

    Hello! I will be arriving from Haneda at 1900 in TBIT via Japan Airlines and have a separate reservation for a flight to ABQ, NM at 2050 via Southwest with carry-on only/no checked bags. Is this sufficient time for customs/security/walking to terminal 1? Thanks in advance! :)

     

    With no checked bags you have a chance if you check in for your Southwest flight before you leave Japan, but it will still be difficult.

     

    Hi!! I was extremely worried after your reply, but made it with time to spare! Here is my experience for other readers that are curious: I forgot to add that I have global entry and TSA pre-check. Global entry was a breeze - I was able to pass customs in less than 30 minutes. Walking from TBIT to 3 to 2 to 1 was definitely a hassle and time consuming with no shuttles going the opposite way. Southwest check in was fairly quick. So from TBIT at 1900 through customs and waking to terminal 1, I was able to do that in about an hour. However security was horrible with no organization at 2000 on a Sunday night. I made it to my gate with about 15 mins to spare even with the security nightmare. Thanks again for your advice & help!

     

  • Southwest to Hawaiian airlines connection

    Hi, We are flying in to LAX on Southwest in Terminal 1 at 7:55 am and leave LAX for HNL on Hawaiian Airlines (Terminal 2) at 10 am. If we check 1 luggage on Southwest, would we have enough time to claim our bag in baggage claim and still make it on time to our flight in Terminal 2 that leaves at 10 am?

     

    That would be barely enough time if everything goes smoothly.

     

  • Terminal 7 to International

    We have a 1.5 hour layover, landing Terminal 7 on United from SFO (937) and departing International B on Singapore Air (11). We are not checking bags. Is it true that the T-4 connector to international terminal is now open and thus we should time to walk and make this connection? Do we need to re-process through security? Thanks!

     

    Yes, you can now walk from T7 to T6 and then through a tunnel to T5 and T4, and then through the connector from T4 to the TBIT all inside security.

     

  • Shuttle to Compass Air

    We will be flying out of terminal 6 to the Compass Airline gate. We understand that we will need to take a shuttle from terminal 6 to the actual gate. My question is do,we go right to the bus stop after going through TSA, or do we wait in terminal 6 to be called to the shuttle bus stop? Does the bus take us to another terminal waiting area or right to the gate? And, how much extra time do we need to leave for this bus ride? Thank you.

     

    You go right to the shuttle and get on it. Where the bus takes you has its own waiting area for the plane.

     

    Thank you.

     

  • LAX to HNL Time to make it from terminal 6 to 4?

    So company setup our flight from PHL to HNL with a 40 minute stop over in LAX, we arrive in terminal 6 at 7:04, depart Terminal 4 at 7:45, assuming there's no delays, are we going to have time to make it? And what's the best way to get from 6 to 4? Any advice appreciated...

     

    The best way is through the pedestrian tunnel. AA Staff there should be able to show you it. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.

     

  • 2 hour connection AA from AUK

    Flying AA from Auckland arriving LAX 6:30am, connecting on AA flight to Austin, TX departing 8:30am. Is 2 hour connection before flight departs LAX to Austin sufficient to collect bags, clear customs, go through security and re-board?

     

    Yes, that should be just enough time. Also the airport code for Auckland is AKL. AUK is Alakanuk, Alaska.

     

  • TBIT re-check in counters for UA?
    Sep 14, 2016

    I will fly inbound on Asiana to TBIT and then outbound from T7 or T8 on UA. Wonder whether there is a luggage re-check in counter in TBIT after I clear the custom? it will be a big trouble to take four check-in and one toddler to walk that long. even shuttle bus will be a hassle. thanks.

     

    Yes, if your bags are tagged through to your final destination you can re-check your bags at the re-check desk after customs in the TBIT.

     

    Thanks a lot!

     

  • Getting boarding pass for connecting flight
    Sep 14, 2016

    I have a 2-legged connecting flight - Santa Rosa to LAX on Alaska arriving in terminal 6 and LAX to Newark on United terminal 7. I cannot get a boarding pass online. Where do I get one once I arrive in terminal 6. I have an hour to make the flight so I don't want to leave the terminals.

     

    If you don't have checked bags you can walk inside security through a walkway to Terminal 7 and get your boarding pass at the gate.
