  • how do I get from gate 75B to gate 77
    Sep 3, 2012
    I have an hour between arriving at terminal 7, gate 75B at LA International Airport and getting on board another flight to depart at terminal 7, gate 77. On the map, gates 75B and 77 look very close to each other. Does anyone know how long it takes to walk? Also, do I need to go up two levels from gate 75B to gate 77? Can I take escalators, and are they nearby to gate 75B to take me directly up to gate 77? Many thanks.


    At LAX, gate 75B in Terminal 7, as gate 75A to the left and gate 77B & 77A to the right - a few minutes' walk.


    Oh, thank you so much. Does that mean that when I emerge from gate 75B after arriving from my flight, I then proceed to my right to gate 77 for my next departing flight? Do I need to go up a couple of floors at gate 77 to the actual departure point?


  • land 2.50pm T2 dep T3 4.05p enough time
    Sep 3, 2012
    Hi , I'm landing virgin atlantic at Terminal 2 2.50PM and depart at 4.05pm Terminal 3. I only have carry on bags. Is this enough time?


    At LAX Terminals 2 & 3 are connected (not sure if at post- or pre-security). If exiting T2 and entering T3 you need to go through security check before proceeding to your gate. Either way you have plenty of time.


  • connection time / proceedures ?
    Sep 2, 2012
    We fly in to Terminal 2 Virgin Atlantic from London UK. We then have 90 minutes to get thro immigration / customs & baggage reclaim & then get to Terminal 3 to check in for a connecting Spirit Airlines flight. (Spirit have just emailed me today to say that they have moved their departures to Terminal 2). Question is will we have enough time & is there anyone we can talk to upon arrival from London who may be able to help us speed things up so that we make our connectin check in time ? - Any advice please !


    While you are arriving and departing from the same Terminal 2, which has gates 21-28, you would make it easily if Terminal 2 had customs clearance facilities - I cannot see such facility looking at the Terminal 2 Map of LAX. Should in fact you need to go through customs clearance at TBIT, the International terminal, it would surely be a race, as you would need to exit T2 and walk, or take a taxi or the LAX bus Route A on lower arrival level island in front the terminal, under sign 'LAX shuttle airline connection', which runs every 12-15 mins (stopping atT3, then TBIT. Walking: T2 & T3 are connected, TBIT is around the bend to your right - taking you about 10 mins. To find out where you will be processed on arrival, contact LAX at or tel. (310) 646 5252. Also notify your flight attendant of your need to be 'first out' of the plane.


  • Terminal 1 to TBIT
    Sep 1, 2012
    I have a tight connection of 65 minutes to get from US Airways (Terminal 1) to TBIT to make a flight to Fiji on Air Pacific. How do I make it on time? They told me they finish checking customers in an hour before the international flight. Will they let us on if we show up later than that, say 20 to 30 minutes before departure?


    On arrival at LAX, Terminal 1 you need to exit the terminal and catch 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 T2, T3 and TBIT - 3 stops or 7 mins. At TBIT you need to go through passport check, before proceeding to your gate. Check the overhead screens for your connecting gate: 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.
