I'm flying southwest to lax then 2 hours later have a united flight. Southwest can't put my bags through to my united flight. Do I have enough time to retrieve my bag, recheck it and get though security in 2 hours?
That's barely enough time if everything goes perfectly. You'll also have to change terminals to practically the other side of the airport.
Glad I asked. Thank you
I'm planning go to Havana from Guangzhou China by LA, flight with Cathay and Alaska airline, on the return i have 3 hours for connection. Are the time enough? because are 2 international flight i have go to the security check again and i have to collect my luggages and check in again?
Yes, you will have to do all those procedures in LAX both ways. 3 hours is just enough time.
Hi! Hoping for some advice.

We are flying American Airlines both flights, Las Vegas to Los Angeles, then Los Angeles to Sydney. Our baggage will be checked through from Vegas.
But we arrive LAX at 10:13pm and our departing flight to Sydney is at 11:20pm.

Is this at all possible to make the connection?
Because it is going on to an international flight will we need to go through security?

It was booked through a travel agent.

Thanks so much !!!
Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
I am booked with a 40 minute connection time mco-lax-san. Does Delta have Connections in one of the 2 terminals, 2 or 3? Or is there a satellite terminal where I'll need to go?
All Delta and Delta Connection use Terminals 2 and 3. If you have to change Terminals, they run a bus inside security between 2 and 3.
I am planning to fly Air France from ppt to lax then connect to delta flight to JFK. How much time is needed for this layover considering we will need to clear customs, recheck, travel between terminals, etc ? Thanks in advance!
If it's all on the same reservation you need 2 hours. If it's two separate reservations you need 3 hours.
My flight on Quantas lands at 6:00 am and American flight leaves at 8:20 am. Is that enough time and what are the steps to get from Bradley to terminal where American is located?
You will arrive, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, follow signs to T4/5 and go through security and through the connector building to your departure gate.
We arrived into LAX from SYD on UA at 6.30am (based on stats this usually lands 20-30mins earlier..) and fly LAX to HAV on Alaska at 8.55am. Have checked baggage.

Is this enough time? Realise it's tight but is it possible (excluding possible flight delays)?
What's the quickest way to get from TBIT to T6?
Yes, that's possible. The fastest way is to walk.
Thank you.

I presume we will have to pick-up baggage, pass customs in TBIT and then walk to T6, re-check baggage, clear security and then immigration? Or does the new connecting building mean we don't have to re-clear security (which would obviously save a lot of time...)?
You have it right except you go through Immigration before you claim your bags, not when leaving the US. Since you have to transfer bags yourself and are coming off an international flight, that means you have to leave security.
Arriving LAX Terminal 2 at 0640hrs on Singapore Airlines, departing Terminal 6 at 0855hrs to Havana on Alaska Airlines. Is 2h 15m enough transit time if I don't have check in bags?
Singapore Airlines uses the International Terminal. That is barely enough time if everything goes perfectly.
Arriving LAX 7:30am American Airlines Flight 491. Depart LAX to YVR 9:13am. Is this enough time to transfer from Terminal 4 or 5 to Bradley?
Your flight will not depart from the Bradley Terminal. it will be in Terminal 4 or 5 (or more likely the American Eagle remote terminal which is accessible from Terminal 5 via bus). Yes, that is plenty of time.
Thank you very much
Hi there, if I take the tunnel connection from Terminal 4 to TBIT do I still have to go through security again? If I do have to go through security again, can I just go through it at terminal 4 then go to my international gate, or do I have to actually go through security at TBIT. I have a flight DEN to LAX then LAX to HND (Tokyo) and my connection time in LAX is 2 hours so I just want to be safe. I plan on checking my bags through to my final destination so I shouldn't have to worry about getting my bags.
It's actually a building, not a tunnel, and that's the point of it - you won't have to go through security again.
