  • Quick connection
    Nov 13, 2016
    Hi I'm connecting from American Airlines in LA and connecting to westjet with only and hour and a half for time. I have all boarding passes. Is there a quick way to get to terminal 2 from American Airlines. Will I have time?


    You will have to walk outside and then go through security again in T2. This will be very difficult.


  • How long should I allow for an international transfer at LAX?
    Nov 14, 2016
    Hi, I'm wanting to book a southwest flight from Cancun to LAX on a Friday night to arrive at 7:30pm. However I then need to make a Qantas flight to Melbourne departing at 11:15pm. Do you think this will be enough time to get through customs and to check in with Qantas? I know LAX is a busy airport so I'm wanting to check before I book.


    Yes, that should be enough time.


    Thanks! Is it far between the 2 terminals?


  • 90 mins layovet
    Nov 13, 2016
    Hi, im flying AA from orlando to lax. Is 90 mins enough to transfer from AA to philippine airlines (international terminal) ? Do i have to go to pass security? Tickets are in the same reservation.


    If everything is on the same reservation you can just use the new connector building to get to the International Terminal inside security. AA probably won't be able to issue your PAL boarding pass so you'll have to get it at the PAL gate. You have enough time if everything goes smoothly.


    Thank you!!

    I have 70 minutes to trasfer at LAX and my flight is from JFK-LAX and then LAX-MEL. It's under one Qantas reservation. Would I be able to make it?


    Yes, you just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate in the International Terminal.


  • Baggage Drop YYZ > LAX > MEL?
    Nov 10, 2016
    I'm coming in on a single booked flight YYZ > LAX Westjet 1100 arriving at 11:42 LAX > MEL Qantas 94 departing at 22:05 Since I pre-clear customs in YYZ will I be checked through and be able to bag drop in LAX or will I have to keep my luggage with me for the day and not be able to check my luggage until 3 hours before with Qantas.


    You should not have to claim your bags in LAX.


  • FAT -LAX-Lima
    Nov 9, 2016
    Arriving LAX from FAT domestic at 6:03pm Depart LAX to Lima International terminal8:20pm What do I have to do to make the transfer? FAT is an international terminal, but several years ago I had to go outside to get to international terminal at LAX and go thru security again. Has that changed with new tunnels? Will I enough time for transfer?


    What airline are you flying from Fresno? Are both tickets on the same reservation or two separate reservations?


  • T4 Intl to T1
    Nov 9, 2016
    Flying into LAX T4 via American Airlines from Tokyo and need to get to T1 for Southwest in under 75 minutes - will that be possible after going through customs and then walking to T1? I only have carry on luggage.


    No, that's pretty much impossible. Change your Southwest flight.


    Thanks for the info, I'll go ahead and book a later flight then. This one will give me 2.5 hours between flight and I believe it shall be sufficient.


  • JetBlue T3 to AA T4 transfer
    Nov 7, 2016
    Separate tkts: JetBlue from JFK arrival 7:22 PM , transfer to AA T4 for LAX-SYD 10:40 PM departure, carry-on only. What's best way to transfer? how long it takes, walk or shuttle? Thanks!


    I would walk. You have enough time. It shouldn't take more than 15 minutes.


  • Correction to previous comment T6 to International
    Nov 7, 2016
    First question: Two hour connection. Will this be enough arriving 1:17pm from AA Compass Airline to LATAM 3:15pm. Second question: Am new to tunnels, will the connections be hard to find and what is the distance between terminals.


  • T6 to International
    Nov 7, 2016
    First question: Two hour connection. Will this be enough arriving :17pm from AA Compass Airline to LATAM 3:15pm. Second question: Am new to tunnels, will the connections be hard to find and what is the distance between terminals.


    You will arrive at the American Eagle remote terminal and take a shuttle to T6, then take the tunnels to T4 and the new connector building to the International Terminal. You should have enough time. It will take you about 30 minutes to get between gates between the shuttle and the walking.

  • Syd to phl via lax
    Nov 6, 2016
    Travelling from sydney to Philadelphia via LAX. What will be the procedure with my luggage? Where do i have to go through customs? Will I have to collect bags and recheck bags in lax.


    In LAX you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, go to your departure terminal, through security and to your departure gate. If you post what airlines you are flying I can help you with what terminals your flights will be in.


  • transit time required
    Nov 6, 2016
    Arriving on WOW air flight from U at 5:20pm. No checked luggage. Connecting to 8:45pm Delta flight to Seattle. Two separate reservations. Is this sufficient transfer time?


    That should be enough time if the WOW flight is on-time.


  • 1 hour layover
    Nov 6, 2016
    Hi, Delta changed my 4 hour layover in lax to a 1 hour 10 min as well as different hub on my way to Boston. I rang and said it wasn't enough time, but they assured me its within the legal limits. Is it possible to make my 2nd flight?


    Where are you flying from and to?


    Sorry, SYD -LAX -MSP-BOS.


    No, 70 minutes is not enough time for an Internaional to domestic connection at LAX. You need to call Delta and have your flights changed.

    Hi there in flying YVR to LAX (arriving at 9:42pm) and then LAX to AKL. same ticket american airlines and bag will be checked through. i will have gone through customs/ immigration in Toronto. I have 1.5 hours between my flight. What kind of security will i have to go though (if any) at LAX and do you think ill make my flight? im not sure of terminals yet. American airlines thinks ill be fine but i'm still a bit worried as don't know LAX well. Thanks


    Also I mean YYZ (toronto) not Vancouver


    All you have to do in LAX is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate, no security. You have plenty of time if the first flight is on-time.


    Awesome, thanks for your help!
