I will be arriving at LAX on an American Airlines flight July 24 that will come into terminal 4, connecting to an American Eagle flight leaving from terminal 5. I have only 45 minutes to connect. Can I make it and what is the fastest way to get from one terminal to the other and avoid addition security check lines?
There is a tunnel that connects T4 and T5 inside security. You have enough time if the first flight is on-time but you have no time to spare.
Hello, We will be arriving at TBIT (international arrival on Virgin Australia flight from Melbourne) at 9am and have a connecting flight (Air Canada but code shared by Virgin Australia) in Terminal 6. Do we have to collect our checked bags once we land prior to boarding the Air Canada connecting flight? Or do they automatically get sent to the Air Canada flight? We are due to land at 9am at TBIT and the connecting flight in T6 is due to take off at 11:45am. Is this enough time? Your advice will be gratefully received. Thank you in advance. Liz.
Yes, you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, go to Terminal 6 and through security. You should have enough time.
Hello, I am flying from Kona, Hawaii connecting through LAX, then home to Toronto. We arrive in Terminal 7 in LAX, and then depart Terminal 6 in LAX. Airline is United, then Air Canada but booked on one ticket and United took ownership of the ticket. Connection time is 1 hour and 20 minutes. Is this enough time? Will we need to pass through security or need to recheck in? Thanks!
All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. T7 and T6 are connected inside security by a walkway. You have enough time.
We are coming in to LAX on a Delta international flight so have to clear customs and immigration before boarding our ongoing Delta domestic flight. Our schedule gives us 2:25 minutes between flights. Will this be enough? We have heard horror stories about international arrival transfers at LAX but supposedly things have improved recently. Would appreciate any current information. Thanks.
That should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.
