We'll arrive Art TBIT Art 12:45 p.m. in Sun and habe a connection w/DL Form T5 Art 2:55pm. We'll need Tod pass immigration, geht the luggage and change terminals?. ANY change Tod catchrbthat flight? I heard hat there is a check-in Kiosk for DL in TBIT, can luggage also be dropped of there? Thx, Alex
I would take your bags with you to T5 if they aren't already tagged to Delta. That should be just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Hi - I'm traveling from SYD to LAX on AA 72, arriving at 6:05am in terminal B. I fly from LAX to YYZ on AA 2654, leaving at 8:09am in terminal 6. This has been booked on the same ticket. I have two checked bags. Is this enough time?
Yes, that should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.
I am flying in to LAX from SFO on Southwest with estimated arrival time at 7:10 AM. I am then flying to Tokyo via Singapore Airlines that departs at 9:00 AM. I will have 2 checked bags. Do I have enough time to make the transfer and check in my bags again or should I try to fly in the night before. This is the earliest flight I can find in to LAX.
That will be very difficult. I would personally fly in the night before.
Hi...we are flying in from Costa Rica to LAX arriving at 2:15pm on Dec. 30. Will we have enough time to clear customs and make a 4pm flight to Seattle? Delta is our carrier on both flights and we will only have carry on luggage.
Yes, that should be just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
I'm coming to LAX on SW Airlines and then flying to London via Virgin Atlantic. I will have checked bags. How much time do I need to allow myself to get bags, and change terminals?
I would want at lest 2.5 hours.
We are arr American Airlines 8.35 LA connecting flight American Airlines 9.45 LA to Honolulu will we have enough time to change terminals. Not sure if we have to collect baggage or if its onforwarded.
Where are you flying into Los Angeles from?
will be f;lying in from Las Vegas
Then all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You may not even have to change terminals. You won't have to do anything with your baggage. All AA gates are connected inside security.
Thanks for that
Hi, I will be arriving on a Qantas flight from Melbourne, Australia to LAX at 6:35am, and am due to fly to Raleigh at 8:45am. Will this be enough time to get around the airport and through security??
If both flights are on the same reservation that should be enough time. If it's two separate reservations that will be difficult.
They are booked on the same ticket, its just a connecting flight?
I'm flying to LAX from Sydney and am boarding another flight to Cancun that night from LAX, do I need to get an American travel visa if I'm not planning on leaving the airport?
What is your citizenship?
Australians do not need a visa to visit or transit the US. You just need to complete ESTA. You will go through US Immigration and Customs in LAX.
I will be flying back from Indonesia on China Air landing @ 9pm. I plan to catch an American flight out of LAX to BNA @ 1am. Is this enough time considering I have to go through customs and then back through security? Not checking bags.
Yes, mbw, that is enough time.

I'm planning on flying December 30th from STL to LAX 6:45pm arrival via Southwest, and then going to the Air Tahiti Nui terminal for a flight at 10:50. Is this enough time to reclaim luggage and check in on time?
Yes, that should be plenty of time. The Air Tahiti Nui check-in counter won't even open until 7:30 or 8.
Thanks! How about the return flight from PPT to LAX? My flight arrives in LAX at 9:10am, how much time do you think I should account for when trying to book my flight back to STL via Southwest? Would an 11:40am (January 6th) departure time be pushing it? Thanks again!
Yes, an 11:40 AM flight would be pushing it but also isn't impossible.
Arriving LAX on Quantas/ AA at 6:05am from Sydney. checked bags
I have a Southwest flight leaving at 10:55 am checking bags
Is this enough time?
What is the best way to get between the terminals?
I have Global Entry
Yes, that is plenty of time. Personally I would walk but you can also take a shuttle to Terminal 1. As you probably know you have to transfer your bags yourself to Southwest.
any idea on the best way to get between the terminals? Can you walk? i
Yes, as I mentioned, you can walk or take a shuttle - personally I would walk.
