  • AA Transfer time
    Aug 17, 2015
    I have a very short (52 minute) layover. Coming in at 9:18pm in Terminal 4, and leaving at 10:10pm in Terminal 6. I know I'm cutting it close, but how long will it take to walk from Terminal 4 to 6? Will I have to go through security again?


    You can now walk from Terminal 4 to Terminal 6 inside security through pedestrian tunnels. It is possible as long as your first flight is on-time.


  • Arriving AA. need to connect to Southwest
    Aug 16, 2015
    Is an hour enough time to make this connection? Carryon only and TSA precheck.


    If the first flight is on-time and you run and you already have your Southwest boarding pass, you can make it.

    Arriving on SW T1 at 10:20am leaving on Air Can T2 at 1:05pm is this enough time to get our checked bags from baggage claim and back through security to our flight?


    Yes, that should be plenty of time.


    My question is if i will be able to make my flight from Leon,Mexico to LAX going through customs and catch my plane to Sacramento in a 2 hour and 50 min layover. My airline are both Delta. I am planning to bring one checked bag. Arriving at LAX AT 9:55am departing 12:45pm to Sacramento


  • Conexion TBIT to terminal 5
    Aug 15, 2015
    Hi! I will arrive at TBIT at 17.05 and I have another flight to San francisco (terminal 5) at 20.00. I need to pass inmigrant control, take my bagges and re-reck them. I have enough time? Thank you!


    That should be enough time.


  • 2 Hr to get from T2 to T1
    Aug 15, 2015
    Arriving on Hawaiian at T2 with 2 hour connection time to get bags and check in with Southwest T1. Enough time?


    That should be barely enough time if your Hawaiian flight is on-time.


  • Connection Time AA to BA
    Aug 15, 2015
    i have an upcoming flight on the 24th of September to London-Heathrow from San Francisco with American Airlines(SFO->LAX) and British Airways (LAX->LHR). It's all in one ticket as I bought the ticket with BA. Will my bags get checked through to LHR from SFO or do I have to claim my bags from T4 and check in again at TBIT with a 2 hour layover? Thanks!


    Yes, your bags will be checked through to LHR. All you have to do in LAX is walk from T4 to the International Terminal and go through security.

    Hi there! Just noticed I have an hour to catch the AA connecting flight to JFK! It's all part of one reservation ... but is this enough time? I'm scared now ... we live in London and we have to catch a particular flight at JFK or kiddies will not be home for first day of school!


    Yes, it should be enough time. All you have to do in LAX is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both in Terminal 4.


    Oh thank you for clearing that up! I guess our luggage gets checked right through to JFK then? Hallelujah! 😀


    Yes, it does


  • Delta to United Connection
    Aug 12, 2015
    I am arriving on a Delta flight at 2:30pm and have a United flight leaving at 4:30pm. I am not planning to check in any bags. I believe, but am not sure, that my Delta flight (domestic) will arrive at terminal 5 and that my United flight (also domestic) will depart from terminal 8. Will I need to go through security a second time at LAX to make this connection, and do you think that the roughly 2 hours will be enough to make my United flight comfortably? Thanks in advance for your help!


    It is possible to walk from T5 to T7/8 inside security. There is a tunnel from T5 to T6 and then T6 is connected by a walkway at the base of the terminal to T7 and T8 inside security. However, with 2 hours and no checked baggage you have time to leave and go through security if you prefer. check in for your United flight online before you leave on your Delta flight.


  • TBT to Terminal 4 (w/Global Entry) - Enough time?
    Aug 12, 2015
    We are arriving on CX at 11:15 and have Global Entry. Connection is AA flight to SF leaving at 12:25. I understand terminals are about 2 minutes apart. Is this possible?


    If everything goes perfectly, you might be able to make it. If you have checked bags, I'm not so sure about your bags though.


  • 2 hr connection from terminal 2 to terminal 7, possible?
    Aug 19, 2015
    Arrive in Avianca (from Bogota) at 20:40 (Terminal 2) and then take a connection to Sydney (United) at Terminal 7 at 22:45. Is it possible to make it? What is the best way from terminal 2 to 7 (I have bags and traveling with my 11 y.o son)


    Purchased on two separate reservations I don't think you could make it before the bag check cutoff.


    It was purchased on the same reservation, would it make it possible? What would you advise me to do as soon as I det out of Terminal 2, take a taxi? bus shuttle?


    On the same reservation it might be possible. I wound run straight across the terminal area from T2 to T7. Going that way would take you only 5-10 minutes to get to Terminal 7. In that case your bags will be tagged through to SYD and you can re-check after clearing customs in Terminal 2.


    My granddaughter arrives TB from Australia at 6:30 tomorrow morning. Her departing flight on Quantas is at 11:00. Will we have time to get breakfast and is there somewhere to do that in Bradley without going through security?


  • adequate transfer I to D with global entry and no checked luggage?
    Aug 11, 2015
    I will be inbound to LAX on a BA A380 at 7:25, connecting to AA from T4 at 9pm. I have global entry/TSA precheck, not checking luggage. Is this is adequate time?


    Yes, that should be enough time.


  • Where exactly is the Transfer Desk for Westjet
    Aug 11, 2015
    I am travelling with China Southern Airlines from Guanzhou to Lax and arriving at TBIT. I have booked with a single ticket up to Calgary. My connecting flight from LAX to Calgary is in 5-6 hours after arriving TBIT. After clearance of immigration and customs, where exactly is the TBIT transfer desk for Westjet where I can drop off the baggage? I am afraid if I have to carry the baggage in cart all the way upto Terminal 2 in order to check in again. Also what would be route of walk from TBIT to Terminal 2? Please help. If a map for Transfer desk location in TBIT could be posted, much appreciated. Thanks


    If your bags are tagged through to YYC you can follow the signs for connecting passengers in the TBIT and your bags will be transferred to Westjet. It's not that bad of a walk from TBIT to T2. You just exit the TBIT and walk to your left (against the flow of vehicle traffic). The second building you come to will be T2.


    After the clearance of immigration and customs, I will be following the signs of connecting passengers and exit the arrival hall of TBIT to find the transfer desk, right? Is there one single transfer desk for all airlines or will I have to search for Westjet Transfer Desk? And, if the baggage not tagged through to YYC, what will I have to do for the tags? and, Boarding pass? Thanks.


    There's one single transfer desk. If your bags are not tagged to YYC you will have to take them to T2. You may have to stop at the Westjet check in counter to get your boarding pass if China Southern can't issue it.


  • Qantas to LAX connecting with United flight
    Aug 10, 2015
    We arrive LAX 6:35AM with an outgoing flight on United at 11:20AM. Is this enough time to clear customs, make it to United Terminal, check bags and get through security lines?


    Yes, that should be plenty of time.


  • arrive Iberia depart for montana
    Aug 10, 2015
    theoretically arrive at 4:10 IBERIA and am looking at a flight that departs DELTA at 6:30. Any possibility of having enough time to get bags, clear customs, make next flight?


    That would be posslble, but doesn't leave a lot of room for any delays.


  • Luggage help
    Aug 10, 2015
    Arriving at Terminal 1 with oversize bags (golf clubs). Is there help available to transport oversize baggage to Terminal 6?


    You could try to find a skycap, but for that type of connection expect to pay him a good sized tip.
