I land at 8 pm on WOW Air and need to catch a 11 PM United flight to San Diego. Will I make it, if I need to check a bag on WOW?
Yes, that should be enough time if the WOW flight is on-time or close to it. You will have to transfer your bags yourself to Terminal 7 to re-check them with United.
I will be flying in from Houston on Southwest Airlines arriving at 8:25 am on March 7 in Terminal 1 with a connecting flight in Terminal 2 to Honolulu leaving at 10:00 am on Hawaiian Airlines. Will I have enough time to make it between these terminals? I'm freaking out. Please let me know if this is enough time?
Yes, that is enough time if the first flight is on-time, especially if you have no checked baggage.
Hi, I'm non-US citizen with ESTA. I'm on a flight with international arrival at 6:50 in LAX TBIT and will be connecting a flight to ATL with AA at 10:30.. Will I have enough time for the connecting fight? I think I need to go through the customs and claim my bag and then check in & do security check to AA domestic flight..
Yes, that should be enough time.
i am foreigner i would be arriving from mexico by UA business class at 12.15 pm terminal 4. need to catch etihad flght to mumbai business class at 4.30 pm terminal B...is it possible ??
United doesn't use Terminal 4. United uses terminals 7 and 8. Please double check your reservation. Where in Mexico are you coming from? Are both flights on the same reservation or two separate reservations? You should have enough time.
Hello! I am flying from London and landing in LAX at 16:10, my next flight leaves at 18:00 with a different airline. I need to pick up my luggage and check it in. Will it be enough time? Thank you!
I am not american and I need to go through costumes and everything
What airlines?
Landing with Norwegian, leaving with Delta
I also can fly with AA and have 2 hours 15 minutes. But it is a bit more expensive
Both connections will be very difficult. I think the Norwegian one would be particularly difficult, but I personally would not try anything under 3 hours.
I am flying into LAX from Cape Town via DOHA on Qatar Airlines (seemingly arriving at terminal 2).
I have a connecting flight to Honolulu 1 hour 25 minutes later scheduled on Delta (seemingly from terminal 5).
Is that enough time, or should I rather take the next flight to Honolulu on American that would give me an extra 2 hours?... but then 3h25 at LAX in transit!
That's not realistically enough time. You need the 3 hr 25 minutes.
I fly from Toronto into LAX via WestJet and depart to Maui on Delta- less than a 2 hour layover. Do I need o check in again or get baggage? How long will it take to get from terminal 2 to 5? I think those are the correct terminals.
If it's all on the same reservation then you don't have to do anything with your bags in Toronto as you will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. It's about a 10-15 minute walk from T2 to T5 and then you have to go through security again in T5. You should have enough time though.
I arrive with Hawaiian Airlines 34 at 21:45 and need to collect my luggage. Will I make it on time to catch Spirit Airlines 184 to Cleveland at 23:37? What if HA is late?
Yes, that should be enough time. Hawaiian flights are rarely late, but if they are, you will be stuck in LAX. Spirit, does not accomodate people who miss their flights because of connections they booked themselves.
I only have 40 minutes to make my connection in LAX. I'm flying from PDX to ZIH on Alaska. If my flight is on time, do I have enough time to walk to the next gate?
Yes, that is enough time. All Alaska gates are close together.
Just verifying, this will be going from a domestic to international flight. Thank you, I appreciate your response!
Yes, that doesn't matter.
We arrive at lax 11:09 am and have a connecting flight to Phoenix at 12:48 pm. It sounds like we have to clear customs when we arrive at lax and then pass through security to catch the connecting flight? I'm worried that 90 minutes isn't going to be enough time.
You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Calgary. What airlines are you flying? Are both flights on the same reservation?
