I'm flying to LAX from Sydney and am boarding another flight to Cancun that night from LAX, do I need to get an American travel visa if I'm not planning on leaving the airport?
What is your citizenship?
Australians do not need a visa to visit or transit the US. You just need to complete ESTA. You will go through US Immigration and Customs in LAX.
I will be flying back from Indonesia on China Air landing @ 9pm. I plan to catch an American flight out of LAX to BNA @ 1am. Is this enough time considering I have to go through customs and then back through security? Not checking bags.
I'm planning on flying December 30th from STL to LAX 6:45pm arrival via Southwest, and then going to the Air Tahiti Nui terminal for a flight at 10:50. Is this enough time to reclaim luggage and check in on time?
Yes, that should be plenty of time. The Air Tahiti Nui check-in counter won't even open until 7:30 or 8.
Thanks! How about the return flight from PPT to LAX? My flight arrives in LAX at 9:10am, how much time do you think I should account for when trying to book my flight back to STL via Southwest? Would an 11:40am (January 6th) departure time be pushing it? Thanks again!
Yes, an 11:40 AM flight would be pushing it but also isn't impossible.
Arriving LAX on Quantas/ AA at 6:05am from Sydney. checked bags I have a Southwest flight leaving at 10:55 am checking bags Is this enough time? What is the best way to get between the terminals? I have Global Entry Thanks
Yes, that is plenty of time. Personally I would walk but you can also take a shuttle to Terminal 1. As you probably know you have to transfer your bags yourself to Southwest.
any idea on the best way to get between the terminals? Can you walk? i
Yes, as I mentioned, you can walk or take a shuttle - personally I would walk.
Hi! I'm flying in to LAX from Singapore and arrive in Terminal B at 6plus am - is Terminal B TBIT? My connecting flight is at 10plus am on Southwest at T1. After I clear customs at Terminal B, can I re-check bags at same terminal or do I have to go to T1 to check in my bags? Thanks!
Yes, B and the TBIT are the same thing. You will have to take your bags with you to Terminal 1 to re-check them with Southwest.
Hey there! I'm just wondering if 2 hours and 30 minutes enough connecting time in lax? I'm arriving on delta and leaving on Philippine airlines, I still have to get my bag in lax since they're booked separately
That should be just enough time if your Delta flight is on-time.
