  • LAX SW to Delta connection
    Jun 14, 2014
    Arrive SW T1 at noon depart Delta T5 2:20. Checked bags and two kids. So about two hours to retrieve bags, change terminals, check bags, and get thru security. Are we crazy?


  • Enuf time to get from T4 Arriving 6:05 AM Leaving 7:35 AM T 1
    Jun 20, 2014
    Is there enough time to get from Term 4 Arriving 6:05 AM Leaving 7:35 AM Term 1. Thx very much.


    You do not arrive at the "S Terminal". You will arrive at one of the numerous domestic concourses. To get to an international flight you just have to take the Plane Train, which runs inside security, from your arrival concourse to your departure concourse. 58 mins should be plenty of time if your first flight is on-time.


  • Is 90 minutes enough to connect
    Jun 10, 2014
    Im wondering if I have enough time to connect with my flight from LAX to Las Vegas. We are coming in from Puerto Vallarta to LAX and have 90 minutes to clear customs, etc. Both flights are Delta.


  • Customs/Immigration
    Jun 6, 2014
    Any idea how busy customs/immigration are at TBIT around 6:30am, I will be arriving there July 11 and have a connecting flight at T5 approx 3 hrs later

    Do I have enough time if I am coming from Cancun on Volaris and landing at 9.54pm to make it to my flight from LAX to Australia on QANTAS taking off at 11.50pm?


    Is your arrival domestic or international. If international it will be really tough as you probably won't make it to T1 in time for Southwest's bag cutoff.


    Thx very much. No checked luggage. Should have mentioned: Coming into LAX from Kona on American at 6:05 AM (T4) and going on to Southwest flight to DEN at 7:35 AM (T1). If I get off plane by 6:30 and need to be at Southwest gate at 7:00 is there enough time to walk through terminals, not parking garages?


    I'd walk through the parking garages.


  • domestic to international connection
    Jun 11, 2014
    Hi I am arriving on United Express from ABQ at 342pm, I depart on Delta at 638pm for Tokyo, is that enough time to connect... my travel agent is saying it's not a legal connection...


    You could take a train to Termini and spend maybe an hour or 2 there before you would have to come back.


  • Tranfer time between T6 and TBIT
    Jun 10, 2014
    Arriving at T6 from Anchorage at 10.15pm 15/8. Connecting to a China Airlines flight that departs at 01.55 on 16/8 from TBIT. Will I have enough time to make this transfer and flight? These are separate flights so I have to pick up my bags at T6 and get them checked in again at TBIT. Thanks.


    If you bought your tickets together they will be transferred automatically to China Eastern and checked through to MNL and you won't have to claim and re-check them in YVR.


    Thank you so much for the info.


  • Arriving Skywest and departing Air Canada
    Jun 3, 2014
    I will have 1 hr 45 min to make a connection in LAX.. I don't think there is anyway of doing this inside a secure area. Means exiting the building and then shuttle, walk (what do people recommend) and going through security again. to get to Air Canada in terminal 2. What is your suggestions for a smooth transition? This will be about 7 a.m.


  • 1 hour connection time with United
    Jul 22, 2014
    I will be flying into LAX from Denver on a United Airlines flight, then onwards to Narita on a United Airlines flight also. The connection time is 1 hour and 1 minute only. Would that be enough time to make it to the next flight? I believe the terminal for the incoming and outgoing flights are both in terminal 7. Thanks.


    If you're in the same terminal, that should be OK. You'll do int'l check-in in Denver, and then just have to deplane and head to the other gate. If it's another terminal, it'll be tough. Are you sure you aren't heading out from TBIT?


  • Help
    May 31, 2014
    If I am sitting towards back of a 777-ER arriving at LAX (TB) on international flight is 3 hr layover enough to get through customs etc and catch my domestic flight in T5. All flights booked via delta.


  • Connecting flight in one hour.... enough time?
    Jun 4, 2014
    I am travelling from Los Cabos, Mexico to LAX, then connecting to another flight to London Heathrow, I have a layover at LAX of just over an hour, will this be enough time to clear security/ customs and get to the next gate?


    JFK has no T3 - El Al uses Terminal 4. Yes, you have plenty of time to transfer the bags yourself if necessary.


  • DELTA International Flight
    May 29, 2014
    I have only 43 minute layover time at LAX from PHX. I'm departing to Narita with the same terminal (Terminal 5 gate 52 arrival from Phoenix, departure to Narita at gate 69B) a shown in my eTicket. I'll be travelling with Delta all the way. Will I have enough time to move from gate 52 to 69B? Do I need to go to security checkpoint again? Thanks.


  • T7 to T3 connection
    May 29, 2014
    I am reaching LAX by Emirates on T7 at 2:15PM and onward journey to Las Vegas by UA from T3 at 5:10PM. what is the process? Should I collect my checked-in bag myself?


  • Terminal 7 to International Gate
    Jul 22, 2014
    I have about one hour to connect between Terminal 7 to International (ANA airline). Do I need to go thru the security check point again?


    Yes, you'll have to go through a second time if you exit the terminal. Ask your flight attendant on the DEN-LAX flight, they may have an operations-level bus to take you direct to the Int'l Terminal. If so, no security checkpoint.


  • Terminal 2 to Terminal 7
    May 28, 2014
    I have one hour and ten minutes to get from terminal 2 to terminal 7. What is the fastest way? Will I be able to make connection?
