Will have checked luggage to retrieve then go to Southwest airline to check in luggage and go to gate, how much time do I need between flights?
You realistically need 2 hours between flights if the United flight is domestic and 3 hours if it's international.
If I arrive at Gate 32, Terminal 3 and have a connection at Gate 26, Terminal 2, will I A, make it with a 40 min layover? B, have to go thru security again at Terminal 2?
Delta runs a shuttle bus inside security between terminals 2 and 3. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
We are a family of 4 (2 kids, 2 adults) flying American Airlines from MIA to SFO, with a LAX connection of 50 minutes on a week day.
Flight 1352 from MIA arrives at LAX at 10:08 AM and flight 6017 to SFO leaves at 11:00 AM.
We do have checked luggage, will this 50 minutes be enough time?.
Yes, that is enough time if the first flight is on-time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
arriving on EVA Business class (but checked luggage) into LAX at 2125 from TPE
have global entry and so also TSA pre-check, but still have to pick up a checked bag
any possibility to make a Southwest Airlines connection at 2230?
No, even with all that I don't think it's enough time. You won't make it to T1 with your bag before the bag check cutoff.
Tom Brady to Terminal 1 to catch a flight to LAS. I'll be arriving (LAX) at 5:50pm from Gatwick with only a carry on backpack. LAS flight leaves at 8:50pm. Enough time?
Yes, that is just enough time if everything goes smoothly. Check in online for your Southwest flight before leaving the UK.
I fly in on Alaska Air from ANC to LAX, then I switch over to American Airlines to DFW. Do I need to exit security from either terminal 3 or 6 to get to AA's terminal 4?
You will arrive in Terminal 6. It is connected inside security via tunnels to Terminal 4 or 5 where your AA flight will depart.
Hi, I am flying AA and have to connect to another AA to DFW and there is only 40 min. between landing the first flight and the second one taking off. We will have carry on only will we make it?
It's possible if the first flight is on-time.
Hi I am tying to plan our flight schedule to LAX on October 5 to connect with a Fiji airways flight that will be departing at 11:30pm. How many hours should I give to arrive in time? I'm sure we will be rechecking luggage and probably security again. We will be flying in on American Airlines. If I go ahead and book the flight arriving at 6:45 pm will that allow plenty of time ?
Yes, that's plenty of time.
I am landing in terminal 6 on an alaska flight from Seattle. I have two hours from when I land to when my Norwegian flight departs from Terminal B. They're two separate tickets, so I have to get my bags in terminal 6. How long does that usually take - should I have enough time?
You have barely enough time if everything goes perfectly. It's really risky with checked bags.
I booked a flight from SJC to LAX, and another flight from LAX to CUN on the same day. The LAX to CUN flight is through Aeromexico, and I won't have any checked bags. Will I have to go through security again? Thanks.
What airline are you flying into LAX?
Flying into LAX from SJC on Southwest.
Yes, you will have to go through security again in Terminal 2.
