  • How far back into Terminal 7 Arrivals can I get?
    Nov 17, 2015
    1
    I'm meeting a group of people arriving at Terminal 7. I'll then be continuing with them on their next flight (departing from Terminal 7). I need to arrange a meeting point. How far into T7 Arrivals am I allowed in order to meet them?

     

    Are they coming in on a domestic flight or an international flight? If it's international you'll probably want to meet them at the exit of customs on the lower level. If it's domestic you can meet them at their gate since they will exit their gate on the upper level, assuming you have a boarding pass departing Terminal 7/8 that day as well.

     

  • LAX to LAS 2 hours and 30 min connections

    Hi I am landing with Virgin Australia at 7.30am in LAX and want to book a Southwest flight to LAS at 9:50am. Will need to go through customs and recheck our bags. Would it be enough time? We can walk verey fast :) Thanks

     

    It's possible, but it doesn't leave much time to spare if the Virgin flight is delayed. Good that you can walk fast. It's a long walk from the International Terminal to Terminal 1 and you'll have to bring your bags with you.

     

    Thank you

     

  • Domestic to international transfer in LAX

    Can I make the transfer in one hour if I have no he led bags

     

    What airlines?

     

    allegiant to emirates

     

    No, I wouldn't try that.

     

    thanks! but is there any way I can use airport transport and make it? I can check in ahead of time for the Emirates flight. HeNo checked bags just a carry on.

     

    There's no transport you'd use. You would just walk from Terminal 3 to the International Terminal and go through security. However, Allegiant flights are frequently late and Emirates will likely not be very understanding if you miss the flight. It's not impossible, but it's quite risky. That's why I wouldn't attempt it.

     

    thanks a lot

    We arrive at 10:30am with Air NZ we are due to fly out at 13:20 on UA to Las Vegas is that enough time to get through all security.

     

    Yes, that should be plenty of time.

     

  • Connection on aa from delt

    I'm arriving to lax with no checked bags on American Airlines. Is one hour possible to make it on a delta flight? What is the fastest route to connect to the right terminal? I'm able and planning on running, just want my route planned so I don't make any mistakes.

     

    Yes, it would be possible if the American flight is on-time and you are checked in online for your Delta flight. American uses Terminal 4 and Delta uses Terminal 5 and 6. 4, 5, and 6 are all connected inside security by an underground pedestrian tunnel.

    We will be arriving 31Jan on Alaska to connect with Air New Zealand in Terminal B. Is 1.5 hours enough connection time (our bags will be checked through but last time we had to re-check them at LAX). And, should we walk or take the shuttle?

     

    You should walk to the International Terminal. You should have enough time if your bags are checked through.

    Hello, Is it possible to get from Delta (T5) to United (T7) without going through security again?

     

    Yes, there is a tunnel from T5 to T6 and then you can walk to the base of T6 and walk inside security to T7 and 8.

     

  • FLYING IN FROM FIJI DEPARTING TO MEXICO

    HI, I AM FLYING IN WITH FIJI AIRLINES AT 11:30 AM INTERNATIONAL TERMINAL AND DEPARTING TO MEXICO CITY WITH AEROMEXICOTERMINAL 2 AT 1:40 PM, DO YOU THINK I HAVE ENOUGH TIME? DO YOU KNOW IF I CAN USE THE GLOBAL ENTRY KIOSKS WHEN ARRIVING FROM FIJI?

     

    Yes, you can use Global Entry arriving from Fiji. You have barely enough time for your connection if your flight from Fiji is on-time. You will likely have to transfer your bags yourself from the International Terminal to Terminal 2 to re-check them with Aeromexico.

    Flying Spirit into LAX terminal 3 and flying out with Air New Zealand. We land at 7:14 pm and fly out at 10:00 pm. Does that give us enough time to meet their cut off times for checking in?

     

    Yes, as long as your Spirit flight is on-time that should be enough time. Terminal 3 is right next to the International Terminal where you will have to check in for your ANZ flight.

     

    We plan to just have carry on luggage. Will that help our time table or make any difference for checking in for our Air New Zealand flight? we have E Tickets printed

     

    Yes, that will save you time as you won't have to wait to claim baggage at Spirit and you may even be able to check in for your ANZ flight online if they already have your Passport details.

     

  • Flying from SD to LAX to Tokyo

    Using Delta and will have 2 checked-in bags from SD -> LAX. Never travelled in LAX before, so do I have to go to the international terminal even though I am traveling with Delta for both flights? Do I have to go through customs? Thanks.

     

    No, you do not have to go to the International Terminal. Delta international flights leave from Terminals 5 and 6. All their gates are connected inside security. All you have to do in LAX is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. There is no US Customs when leaving the US.

     

    Can I go to TBIT to shop if my flight is out of Terminal 5?

     

  • Getting to T7

    Hi there I see there is a lot of roadwork and delay around the international terminal. Can I get out of the shuttle at T1 and walk across to T7, rather than wait the 30 mins it takes to go all the way round?

     

    Yes, you can walk straight across the parking garage or the lower level from T1 to T7. it is much faster than taking the shuttle.

     

    Thanks!

     

  • Eva Air to Southwest

    Eva Air flight from TAI PEI gets in at 19:25 and have a flight on Southwest at 21:10. Do we have enough time to disembark, collect bags, clear US customs, recheck bags and get through TSA?

     

    That's barely enough time if everything goes perfectly.

     

  • Connection from TBIT to Delta (Terminal 5)

    Hello, We arrive into LAX (TBIT) from Tahiti on Air Tahiti Nui at 11.05am on Monday 21 March 2016. I want to book a connection (separate ticket) on Delta, who I understand operates from Terminal 5, from LAX to Las Vegas at 15:10 on the same day (Monday 21 March 2016). This is just over 4 hours connection time between the two flights (separate tickets and I don't think there is an interline agreement between Air Tahiti Nui and Delta). Is this enough time to clear passport control/immigration, collect luggage in TBIT and then walk to Terminal 5, check in, drop bags and get to the flight on time for a 15:10 departure on the same day? Many thanks in advance for any help, it is much appreciated. Chris

     

    Yes, a 15:10 flight would be fine.

     

    Thank you that is very useful. Is TBIT about a 10 minute walk to Terminal 5?

     

    Yes, 5-10 minutes,.

     

  • Walking vs LAX A Shuttle
    Nov 11, 2015

    Hi, good morning! We are traveling on Jan 1st from AMS to LAX with KLM, according to the itinerary we arrive at TBIT at 11:45am and our next flight to SAN (with Delta) departs from terminal 5 at 2:55pm - both in a single ticket. I am aware we will have to follow some steps when arriving to the US (immigration, claiming bags, customs, re-cheking bags) and I am guessing we will have to go through security again on T5. My question is: would it be better to take a walk from TBIT to T5 or should we take the A Shuttle instead? Which should be faster? Thank you very much in advance!

     

    It's almost always faster to walk than take the shuttle. It's not far from the TBIT to T5.

     

    Great! Thank you. Would it take us around 20 minutes? Do we need to get out of the terminal building to take this walk? Thanks agains!

     

    Yes, after re-checking your bags you will exit the International terminal and walk to your right (with the flow of vehicle traffic). The Second building you come to will be Terminal 5. You will go through security there.

     

    Thank very much you for the quick reply!

     

    Arriving with AA3 from JFK and flying on with AA 297 to HNL has 1:20 layover time. Is that enough?

     

  • Getting from T6 (Alaskan lounge) to T5 (Delta flight)

    I am flying out of T5 on Delta to SYD but considering using the Alaskan lounge on T6. Is the tunnel the best way to connect and if so how long does it take to walk?

     

    Yes, just take the tunnel. It will take 5 minutes.
