  • SW to QF

    Hi just wondering if an SW flight to T1 from Denver, landing at 8.25pm gives me enough time to walk to TBIT and make checkin and what not for a QF flight leaving at 10:50pm. Will have two checked and two carry on. Thanks

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. You should be at the International Terminal by 9 PM or so.

     

  • distance between Terminal 1 to Tom Bradley

    hi.. I'm wondering how far is terminal 1 to Tom Bradley, I will have 2 luggage and 1 carry on, so I think I'll walk instead of taking the shuttle, do, do I have to cross the crowded street? thank you

     

    You don't have to cross any streets. It's a 15-20 minute walk.

     

    thank you, I appreciate your response, now I can purchase my ticket ( it's Cyber Monday, and lots o f discount on airline tickets) without worrying about the hassle of taking the shuttle bus with bunch of luggage..

     

  • connection time sufficient?

    Arriving (TBIT) VA1 from SYD 26/12 at 6.30am then flying to New Orleans with South West (Term 1) departing 08.50am. Will check in online with SW before leaving Australia. Is this enough time?

     

    That should be enough time. You will probably be out of Customs by 7:15, then it's about a 15-20 minute walk to Terminal 1 (be sure to take your baggage with you, you can't re-check it in the International Terminal), so you should be in Terminal 1 at least an hour before your flight.

    Is the time enough for me to tsansfer from LAX terminal 5 to Tom Bradley terminal based on the below flights schedule AF2219N 17MAR TU SJCLAX SS1 1240 1400 AF 65N 17MAR TU LAXCDG SS1 1645 1135

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. Walk from T5 to the TBIT along the curb. It shouldn't take more than 15-20 minutes. You won't have to do anything with your baggage in LAX.

     

    Thnaks a lot

    International arrival at terminal 7 on Alaska airline and then have a connecting flight in 2 hours on Cathy Pacific. How do I manage? please help. My flight is tomorrow.Guadalajara to LA on Alaska airline and LA to Hongkong on Cathay pacific. Only 2 hours in between the flights.

     

    Well, you'll arrive, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, then take your bags to the International Terminal to check with Cathay. You won't have much time to spare/.

     

  • With carry-on bag(s) is connection time enough

    Travelling AA 1586 Toronto to LAX on Jan 4/15 arriving LAX 9:05pm at Terminal 4. U.S. Customs clearance is apparently done in Toronto. ONLY carry-on bags. Connecting flight (booked separately) is Quantas leaving Bradley terminal at 10:30pm to Sydney, Australia. If I walk from T4 to Bradley should this allow enough time?

     

    Yes, it is possible but it depends on your flight from Toronto arriving on-time. If it is late more than 15 minutes, you will arrive in the Bradley Terminal after the check-in cutoff.

     

    Thanks for the info. If online check-in is done within 24 hrs of flight to Australia, would this constitute check-in? Just assuming the check-in cut off is 60 minutes, but could online check-in alter this time frame? thanks

     

    Yes, if you can check in and get your boarding pass online then you won't have to go to the counter.

    Hi, I will be flying into LAX from an international flight on Dec 25th and connecting to a domestic. Is 2 hours enough time to collect baggage and make the connecting flight? Thanks for your help.

     

    What airline or airlines? Did you buy two separate tickets or were all your flights bought together? You need to answer these questions for us to help you.

    Hello! I am booking a flight from Honolulu arriving at LAX at 9:03pm and wanting to catch a flight at 9:50pm to Boston. Is this enough time? I will have a 2yo and a 4yo with me!

     

    I forgot to add that is is American Airlines both flights

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate which will both be in the same terminal near each other.

     

  • Is 2.5 hours to clear customs and change carriers enough time

    We are arriving on Avianca from Peru/San Salvador at 12:35. Looks like Terminal 2. Our flight on Southwest departs at 15:00 from Terminal 1. Will that be enough time to clear customs, check luggage with Southwest and make the 15:00 flight?

     

    Yes, that is probably enough time. You will probably be out of customs by about 13:15, so that leaves you another hour to get to T1 and check your bags.

    hi, will arrive in Los angeles on Emirates at about 1pm and then have a domestic Virgin connection to Las Vegas at about 5pm. is 4 hours enough? is the domestic and international terminal same and whats the best way as I will have to do immigration customes etc. at LA?? do I have to collect my check in luggage and rebook at Virgin counter? Pls let me know. thanks

     

    You will arrive in the International Terminal, go through US Immigration, claim your baggage, go through US Customs, then if you purchased your tickets together and your bags are tagged to LAS, you will re-check your bags at the transfer desk, otherwise, you will exit the International Terminal, walk to the left to Terminal 3, where you will get your Virgin America boarding pass, re-check your bags if they weren't already re-checked, and go through security and to your departure gate. You have plenty of time.

    Arriving on China Airlines at 12:45 pm Terminal B and departing on SW at 2:25 pm. Only doing carry on luggage. Is this enough time?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. Check in for your Southwest flight online before you leave Asia.

    I will be arriving LAX on UA 1653 from Cancun at 1125 a Sunday, 2/22, to connect with Alaska Airlines 2474 to Santa Rosa, CA, departing 1225 p. Is that enough time to make the connection? Must I go through passport control/customs/ security?

     

    Yes, you will arrive in Terminal 7, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs. If you purchased your tickets on one reservation you can re-check your bags at the transfer desk, otherwise you will have to take them to the Alaska Airlines counter in T6 to re-check them. Some United International arrivals at LAX are arriving in the International Terminal. The procedure is the same but you just have to go further to T6.

    Yes, that should be enough time.

     

    Thank you for your reply!

  • Terminal 7 Baggage re-checking

    Hi, I'm flying with United into LAX from SYD at 06:30 and need to catch a connecting flight booked together to SFO at 08:20 (then on to Eugene) Both flights are landing/departing from terminal 7. Will one hour and 50 minutes be enough time to go through immigration and customs and re-check the bags at the transfer desk and then get back through security? What would be the minimum time you would recommend for this process? Cheers.

     

    That should be enough time. However be aware that some united flights from Australia have been arriving in the international terminal. The process is the same, just a longer trip between terminals.
