  • Virgini America to United - Domestic
    May 23, 2016
    1
    Arriving from Kona, Hawaii to Los Angeles on Virgiin America at 9:00PM. Flight leaves from Los Angeles on United at 11:45PM. Is this going to be enough connecting time to claim luggage, recheck, and go back through security for the United flight?

     

    That should be just enough time if everything goes perfectly. It's a long trip from Terminal 3 where you arrive to Terminal 7 where you have to re-check your bags.

    My daughter is arriving Bradley international terminal at 1:25 p.m. from Tokyo. She needs to transfer to SWA and catch a 6:10 p.m. flight. How best to get from Bradley Int'l terminal to SWA. Will time be a factor? Thanks.

     

    The best way is to walk. She has plenty of time.

    Hi - I am flying from Taiwan to LAX, then connecting to my flight to Mexico. Will I have to pick up my bags? Can I give my bags to someone outside the airport and board my flight to Mexico without my bags

     

    Yes, you will have to pick up your bags to go through US Customs. Yes, you don't have to re-check your bags to mexico if you don't want to.

    I will be arriving on a United International flight from Sydney. I need to process though immigration and customs ( carry on luggage only).and then go to the Southwest counter to check in for my flight to Denver. My United flight is scheduled to arrive at 0640, and my Southwest flight is scheduled to depart at 10:40am. Will this be sufficient time to clear immigration/customs, get to SW ticket counter, check-in and get to my departure gate at LAX?

     

    That should be enough time.

     

    Thanks so much!

     

  • Terminal B to Terminal 2 - international flights transfer
    May 24, 2016

    G'day, I land at Terminal B on a Qantas flight (from Australia) at 6.00am. I'll need to collect baggage etc and get to Terminal 2 for another international flight to Mexico City, on Aeromexico, departing at 9.30am. These are two separate bookings, so I'll need to go through passport control etc, I imagine. I've never been through LAX. Is this enough time? Thanks so much.

     

    It's possible, but it doesn't leave much time to spare.

     

    I'm in a similar situation although, arriving 6:55 Virgin Aust, TB, and departing 9:15 Aeromexico, T2, but only with carry on. What do you think of my chances?

    We'll arrive on AA from PHL at T6 at 10:33 AM and need to go to T4 for a 12:30 PM departure to SFO on AA. Will we have enough time? And what's the best way to do the transfer? Thanks.

     

    Yes, that is enough time. T6 and T4 are connected inside security by a pedestrian tunnel through T5.

     

  • How to transfer from T3 to international airport in LAX

    I am going to flight from LAV to LAX next month. I have little kids with me in this flight, so I am so worry about this. I have a question about in transfer in LAX. I arrive in LAX by Virgin America. and then I will depart from TBIT by Singapore airline. I have 5 hours between, so I am sure I have enough time with my little kid. Could you help me HOW to transfer from T3 to TBIT international airport? DO I need to get out the domestic terminal to International airport? DO I need to take out all my luggage when I arrive at LAX? Please help me!!!

     

    What is "LAV"? Do you mean Las Vegas (LAS)? If you have two separate reservations you will collect your bags, exit terminal 3, walk next door to the International terminal, re-check your bags with Singapore, and go through security. If you purchased one reservation then you just have to go to the TBIT, get your boarding passes, and go through security.

     

    ZAP, Thank you so much!!! Yes I meant Las Vegas (LAS). I bought this flight ticket online for one reservation. So sounds like I can just got to TBIT. Is it pretty far walk from T3 to TBIT? Do I need to take shuttle bus? Is there any easy way? I have never been to LAX before but looks huge airport!!! Thank you again!!!!!

    Will arrive at 10:01 and the next flight is at 10:55. Is that enough time? Do we have to change terminals?

     

    No, you do not have to change terminals. That is enough time if the flight from San Jose is on-time.

     

    How long at LAX? Ron, Karen and Sharon are in LA?

     

  • Connections between Terminal 5 and 3

    Hi there. I've booked a flight with Delta from Detroit airport to LAX which lands at 9:40pm at Terminal 5. I then have a Virgin Australia flight to Brisbane departing at 11:50pm in Terminal 3. Will 2hrs and 10 mins be enough time to make this connection?

     

    It's just enough time if everything goes smoothly. Note that the Virgin Australia check-in desk is in Terminal 3 but the flight actually departs from the International Terminal, so you can proceed directly to the International Terminal if everything is on the same reservation, which you can now reach inside security.

    Arriving Jet Blue T3 #287 at 10:06 am and departing Hawaiian Airlines T2 #HA33 at 11:15am. Do we have time? can walk very fast. Any suggestions on route to get there?

     

    traveling on Tuesday, 5/24

     

    The fastest route is to walk. You will have to go through security again in T2. This is a very difficult connection.

    I land in LAX from ORL through delta & have 35 minutes to get to a connecting flight through delta for HNL. Will I be safe since it should be in the same terminal?

     

    As long as your flight from Orlando is on-time you should be OK.

     

  • Connecting Air Tahiti Nui to Jetblue domestic

    Hi, we are arriving at 10:15AM on an Air Tahiti Nui flight from Papeete to LAX, and hoping to make a 12:35PM Jetblue flight to JFK. Is this adequate time? We both have Global Entry.

     

    With Global Entry I think you'd have a chance.

     

    Thank you! I'm nervous about cutting it close, but with such a long trip home , I also don't want to spend four hours at LAX.

    I am flying from Chicago to Maui via United and have to change planes at LAX to another United flight. Is this usually done in the same terminal or will I have to rush to a different terminal? I don't have much time between flights.

     

    All United flights are in terminals 7 and 8 which are really just 2 wings of the same building and connected inside security. It's a very easy connection.

     

    Thanks!

     

  • T4 connecting to T2

    Hi, we are arriving on AA around 6:55am from HNL at T4 and connecting to Aeromexico to CUN at T2 with 2hr 20min layover. Tickets bought through Orbitz under 1 reservations. Is this enough time? Do we have to pick up checked baggage and recheck? Go through security? What's the best way to get from T4 to T2? Thank you.

     

    Your bags will be transferred for you. You will have to go to Terminal 2, get your Aeromexico boarding passes if AA can't issue them in HNL, and go through security. The best way is to run straight across the parking garages.
