i have a 58min layover and i need to get from termial 4 to 5? do i have time?
Are your flights on the same reservation or two separate reservations? What airlines are you flying? Where are you flying from and to? Do you have checked bags?
We are leaving Seattle to LAX and a connecting flight is 30 minutes from when the next plane takes off. Will we have to go off the 1st plane and get onto the second before it leaves the gate with Virgin Airlines?
Where are you flying to on the second flight? Are they Virgin America? There is no "Virgin Airlines".
Flt on AA on Saturday from Cabo arrives 2:36pm and leaving on 5:15pm connection to Kona. Is that enough time to clear customs and catch flight? Will I need to collect luggage before customs? Will both flights be in Terminal 4? thank you!
Yes, that is enough time if everything goes smoothly. Yes, you will have to claim your bags to go through US customs. Yes, both flights should be in Terminal 4.
We have a domestic flight via Delta arriving in LAX at 10:24pm booked separate from our international flight out of Air China at 12:50am. We have one check in luggage. Will that be enough time to claim our bag, walk to TBIT, check in at the counter, and go through security?
That is just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Hi all,

In a couple months I fly in from overseas to LAX and then head on to PDX via Delta. My connection time is 2h 35 and I was wondering if that will be long enough to be able to get through customs and get checked back in. Also, it is booked all on one ticket too. thanks
What airline are you flying into LAX on? Where are you coming from?
I'm flying in on virgin Australia through delta and then flying on delta from LAX. and I'm coming from Australia
Then yes, that should be enough time. You will arrive in the International Terminal and depart from Terminal 5.
I have a tight connection in LA. I have to go through TSA passenger screening in the Tom Bradley Int'l Terminal. I am thinking it would take about 10 mins. How long would the TSA passenger screening take?
Hi
I have a flight from Vancouver, Canada to Lima, Peru. I am connecting in Los Angeles. I will be flying on Air Canada for the YVR-LAX flight and Latam Airlines for the LAX-LIM flight. My plane arrives from Vancouver at 12:03pm and departs for Lima at 14:05pm. How much time do i have to connect? Is it enough? What will I have to do once arriving in LAX? I would appreciate if someone could get back to me. Thx :)
Is it one reservation or two separate reservations?
Hello. I'm flying the above route all on United with a 55 min layover in ORD, and a 44 min layover at LAX. Will we clear customs in CLE and just be able to get right on the flight at LAX or do we clear there before SYD?
My mother is flying from Toronto (clears US customs there) to terminal 2 at LAX. She then takes a connecting flight to Lihue, Kauai from terminal 7. It is all on one ticket. She will check bags in Toronto. I believe she will have to leave the TSA secured area to get from terminal 2 to terminal 7, correct? Will she have to claim & recheck her bags or will they be checked through to her final destination from Toronto. Thanks for your help!
Yes, she will have to go through security again in T7. She doesn't have to do anything with her bags.
We are flying from vegas landing with AA in terminal 4 to PAL in international to Philippines. Traveling with a 4 year and saw some videos there is a new connection that you just walkthrough. my question is do you still have to go through security again or can you just go to the gate? Bought through Expedia so will american airlines take our bags to the airline or do we have to go out and pick up?.
If your bags are checked through (they should be) then you can just walk through the connector building to your departure gate without having to go through security.
