  • connect to TB from terminal 5
    Oct 3, 2012
    I am arrving via Delta at Terminal 5, then retrieve my baggae and proceed to tom Bradly termunal for my international flight and check in at Philippine airlines. How do I get to TB after getting my baggages? Thank you.


    On arrival at LAX Airport at T5 you have two options: (a) exit T5 and walk to the left to T4, walk around the curve to Bradly - 10 mins.; (b) take the 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 the next stops are T6 to T8, around the bend to T1 to T3 and around the curve to Bradley - 7 stops or 18 mins. In either case count in the extra time for baggage checkin, security check & gate connection. At Bradley, 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. Look at overhead screens to find your connecting gate number.


    I willchoose to walk because I have two pcs of baggages to check in.Thank you so much for your reply. At least I will know what to do.


  • Short layover/checked luggage
    Oct 3, 2012
    I am flying IAD to LAX next week on UAL 731 (777 aircraft) and then departing LAX to San Luis Obispo 46 mins later. According to my research I will most likely be arriving at gate 74 and departing from 71. Should I be concerned about my checked luggage getting on my flight to SBP? I'm elite status on UAL but with such a short layover I worry my bag won't get transferred in time. Thanks!


    You won't have to worry about baggage transfer if your flights are via United /United Express. However, keep in mind that United uses T6 (gates 60-77)& T7 (gates 70-77), and United Express uses gates 80-88. If you need to transfer from T to T, keep in mind that T6 & T7 are connected by a tunnel, and T8 has a short walkway to T7. Transfer would also involve going through security check before proceeding to gate. You would have to hurry. Do scan the overhead screens on arrival for your departing gate!

    We are arriving at terminal 4 and departing at terminal 4. How do we get from the arrival area to departure area?


    When arriving at LAX, Terminal 4, look at overhead screens for your connecting flight number and gate. Terminal 4 has gates 41-49. Follow signs to your connecting gate.


  • Can I make TBIT to Terminal 4 in 2 hrs?
    Oct 1, 2012
    My trip is Sydney-Los Angeles-Orlando...arriving on Qantas to TBIT (Terminal B), then have only 2 hrs before I have to leave from Terminal 4 on American for Florida. Will I get my checked bag and go thru Customs then check it in again? How do I get from TBIT to Customs to Terminal 4? The 12-15 min for shuttle bus I'm reading about seems like a long time, better to walk/run? Would like to know if this is a nail-chewing, hectic deal time-wise or no biggie. Thank you experienced travelers!


    1. You need to contact Qantas to make sure they transfer your bags at LAX to your connecting American Airlines flight - if not you need to take your bag to Terminal 4 and re-check it in with AA. 2. Qantas is listed as being in Terminals 4 (gates 42-49) and the International Bradley terminal ("TBIT" or TB" - gates 107-123) - you ticket should indicate terminal/ gate. If arriving at T4, Qantas bus will shuttle you to TBIT for Customs procedure. 3. When exiting T4, TBIT is to your left around the bend, a 5-minute walk (the bus goes the other way (TBIT to T4-T8 over to T1-T3, back to TBIT). Whether you need to re-check-in your bag at T4 or go straight on through security and on to your gate - you have enough time.


  • flight connection at LAX

    I only have a one hour layover between flights from SLC and to Sydney. The SLC flight normally comes into Terminal 5 and the flight to Sydney takes off from Gate 53. I can't seem to locate Gate 53. Does anyone know if I should be able to make the conncection on time?? Thanks!!


    At LAX Airport, Terminal 5 with gates 50-69 serves Delta and Virgin Australia - all you need to do is switch over to your connecting gate 53.

    How do I get from Terminal #5 to Terminal #6. Walk Rail ?? Run? LOL


    On arrival at T5, go down to the ground /arrivals level, then take the escalator down to the tunnel connecting to Terminal 6, up the elevator and on to security check and to your T6 gate!
