    I will be traveling from SRQ then ATL to LAX (on Delta) and then have to transfer to Virgin Australia, will my bags automatically transfer from T5 to T3? Also I return to LAX on Virgin Australia, then I have to connect with Delta to ATL/SRQ. Do I arrive in LAX at TBIT or T5 because it is both VA/delta flight numbers. Will a 4 hr. layover be enough to go through customs/pick up baggage/recheck baggage then be re screened? Sorry for so many questions. I have never flown through LAX BEFORE


    Were all your tickets bought on one reservation? If so then yes, Delta and Virgin Australia interline baggage. Your ATL-LAX flight will arrive in T5 and your Virgin Australia flight to Australia will operate from Terminal 3. No flights will use TBIT. Yes, 4 hours should be plenty of time. You can walk or take the shuttle between T3 and T5.


    Yes, all booked through delta website. When I fly back to LAX on VA what terminal do I arrive at if it is VA/delta flight...terminal 5? Thanks for such speedy responses.


    Your Australia-LAX flight operated by Virgin Australia will arrive in Terminal 3. Then your Delta flight to ATL will depart from Terminal 5. It's pretty simple - Delta operated is in Terminal 5 and VA operated is in Terminal 3.


    I'm also flying VA back from Sydney to LAX, then connecting to Delta to DTW. From what I know, VA arrivals come in to TBIT. VA departures are out of T3.


  • walk between terminals with luggage
    Sep 1, 2013
    I arrive LAX terminal 4, 7:20pm, depart terminal 3 on Vaustralia at 10:10. I will need to pick up my luggage and take it with me to terminal 3 and go through security and re-check my luggage. I will have a lot of luggage and will need assistance. Is this enough time and can I wheel a luggage cart walking from terminal four to three?


    Yes, you should be able to take a luggage cart on the lower level or the upper level between T4 and T3. It will probably be about a 15 minute walk.

    Lunch specials were great and reasonably priced for airport food (bacon wrapped meatloaf and roasted chicken - both with mashed potatoes) for about $14. Hot, quick, tastey, courteous table service - what's not to love?! Beats pre-packed sandwich slop any day.


  • TBIT to terminal 6 - need to connect by two hours
    Aug 11, 2013
    Will land from Israel at 06:35 in LAX TBIT then need to connect to Terminal 6, to catch domestic flight to Portland OR, depart at 08:35. 1. Is suitcases are sent automatically or do I need to pick them before? 2. is it enough time to catch the connection, and how long id to walk to T6 from TBIT


    You will have to claim your baggage in immigration. If your bags are tagged through to PDX then you can likely re-check them in TBIT after you clear customs, however, if you bought your tickets on two reservations you'll have to take them to T6 with you and check them there. You should have enough time. It's about a 10 minute walk from the exit of the TBIT to the check in area of T6

  • do we have enough time?
    Jul 18, 2013
    we fly jet blue bos-lax, lax to hnl on united 2hrs layover. is this enough time. with someone in a wheelchair?


    Yes, that should be enough time. JetBlue arrives in Terminal 3 and United departs in Terminal 7 on the opposite side of the airport though.


    Can we walk from 3 to 7? would we have to take a shuttle??


    It's possible to walk from 3 to 7. It's a long walk though, as the middle of the "horseshoe" at that point is full of parking garage.


  • YUL- LAX Terminal 2 to LAX-PHO Terminal 8
    Jul 17, 2013
    We have 1:45 min between connecting flights, 2 different airline companies and must change terminals. Do we must go thru Security clearance again? Do we have to pick up luggage before connecting? Is there special lane if we have Nexus/Global entry card. Thank you.


    You will clear US Immigration in Montreal. If your tickets were bought on one reservation then Air Canada will transfer your bags to United for you. Yes, you will have to go through security again in T7/T8 and having a Nexus/Global Entry card won't help you there. However if you do have Premier Access from United you can use their Premier security lines which are accessible from the area between T6 and T7.

    where is Air Berlin terminal? I did a search of airlines using the Bradley terminal and did not find Air Berlin


    Air Berlin does indeed use the Bradley Terminal. Perhaps they weren't listed because they only serve LAX seasonally. However, also make sure that your flight is actually an Air Berlin flight to Berlin or Dusseldorf, and not a codeshare flight operated by another airline.

    Jul 12, 2013
    Hi, what is terminal B, on the map it only shows from T1 to T2. The flight I am looking for is scheduled to arrive on july 12, 2013, Aeroflot SU 106. Could you let me know where I need to park and what actual terminal number this flight has.


    Aeroflot uses the Tom Bradley International Terminal at LAX.


  • T8 to TB
    Jul 7, 2013
    I have 1:20 between flights arriving United Express in T8 to Lufthansa in TB. What's the best way to go between, and must I go through security again? Thanks.


    At LAX, you have 2 options to get from T8 to TBIT (TB) - both of them, however, still require you to go through security check at TBIT before proceeding to your gate. (a) walk: a short walkway is between T8 & T7. At T7 take escalator down to tunnel connecting to T6, T5, T4; take escalator up and walk left around the bend to TBIT. (b) take bus: the LAX bus Route A on lower arrival level island in front of each terminal, under sign 'LAX shuttle airline connection', which runs every 12-15 mins. Next stops: After T8 but goes to the other side to T1, T2, T3 & TBIT: 4 stops or 10 mins. Hurry!

    My husband arrives international from Australia and I land and T8 2 hours later. What is the best way for him to come to find me?


    Probably in the United baggage claim in Terminal 7 - however, it's not a very nice place to wait. He'll probably want to take his time getting over there.


  • Home Turf Sports Bar
    Jul 5, 2013
    This little sports bar looks promising, but the food is grim, fodder that even a goat would not recognize as sustenance. My $10 tuna sandwich was cold prepackaged fare that consisted of some meaty tuna-ish substance smeared between two slices of a thing I consider an insult to bread everywhere.
