  • Transfer Terminal 5 to International terminal
    Apr 10, 2016

    Is 2 hrs enough time to get from terminal 5 to International terminal?

     

    Do you have checked bags? Are your flights all on the same reservation or separate ones? What airline are you flying out of the International Terminal?

    I just posted a question but wanted to add more detail. I am scheduled to fly from SLC and to land in LAX at 6:45am on a southwest flight in terminal 1 and depart to Miami at 8am on an American from terminal 4. Can I make it to terminal 4 and through security in time to catch my flight? I imagine I will save a lot of time if I don't check a bag correct?

     

    Yes, with a checked bag it would be completely impossible. With no checked bags it is instead just very very difficult.

     

    Thank you! This is a great site, thanks for sharing your knowledge.

    My flight from Australia QANTAS lands at 06:30am, I need to fly to JFK. If I book a flight with Jet Blue at 08:30am, will I be able to make it through customs, baggage and check in in that time?

     

    I wouldn't recommend booking anything before 9:30

    Delta Flight arrives at 5:50 pm at terminal 5 LAX. I catch Air New Zealand flight 9:45 to Australia. Is this enough time to make the connection?

     

    Yes, that should be plenty of time.

     

  • Getting from TBIT to terminal 5

    We arrive at TBIT on a QANTAS flight from Australia @ 0600 11/26/2016. We then have a DELTA flight from terminal 5 @ 1000. Is 4 hours enough time to collect baggage, clear customs and immigration and get over to terminal 5 and check on to the domestic DELTA flight to Orlando? Also whats the fastest way to get between terminals?

     

    Yes, that is enough time. The fastest way between terminals is to walk.

     

    That's great, I have heard that DELTA have a check in desk at TBIT right after customs and we can check our bags in there rather than drag them all the way to terminal 5... do you know if that's the case?

     

    If your bags are not tagged to your final destination, then you have to take them with you to T5 to re-check.

    Hi, I only have about 30mins between my two flights. I have to go from Terminal 6 to Terminal 4. Is it possible? The flight is PHL->LAX->SJC. Thank you!

     

    The flight arrives at 904 PM and next flight leaves 940 PM

     

    That will be difficult. Your flight to SJC will actually depart from the American Eagle remote terminal which requires taking a shuttle bus to.

     

    Where should I take the bus? The bus is in Terminal 4 or terminal 6? Thank you!

    Hi I will arrive from HNL to terminal 4 at 6:00 AM and have to take a plane departing from the same terminal (same airline and even the same door) to MIA at 8:00 AM. Is there enough time to go through the whole process? Thanks.

     

    Yes, that is plenty of time. There is no process you have to go through in LAX.

    What is the best and quickest route from Terminal 3 to Tom Bradley International Terminal with 2.5 hours time?

     

    Walking is fastest. They're right next to each other.

    will 2 hours and 20 mins be enough time to get from United to Hawaiian airlines?

     

    At LAX

     

    If the United flight is domestic that should be enough time, although it will be much more difficult if you have checked baggage.

    Quick question. My flight is scheduled to arrive back from Cambodia at 5:00pm on August 9th, and I was planning to book a separate flight leaving for Paris, France that same day later at 8:15pm. Both flights will be arriving and leaving from Terminal B LAX. Would this be ample time to make my flight for France? Factoring customs/immigration when I arrive from Cambodia, baggage claim, re-checking in, security, etc? Any insight would be appreciated. Cheers!

     

    That would be just enough time if everything goes smoothly.

     

    Thanks for your input!

    I am going from HNLLAX on Hawaiian arriving at 11pm then connecting to Delta departing at 1245am to ATL. Is this enough time? What terminals are they located and do I have to go through security again? What's the best or quickest way to get between these terminals? I only have carry on.

     

    You will arrive in Terminal 2 and depart from Terminal 5. Yes, you will have to go through security again. The best way between terminals is to walk.

     

  • Terminal 4 to 1?

    We only have an hour between connecting flights between terminal 1 and terminal 4. Any advice? Will we have to go through security? If we do, will they be nice and help us get through?

     

    That's not enough time. You shouldn't have tried to book that connection. With checked bags that would be completely impossible.

     

  • AA to AA or AA to Alaska ?

    Two adults and five teenage Girl Scouts arriving LAX from Belize and continuing to Portland this summer. Two options availalable -- a 2:45 connection to an American Eagle flight OR a 3:40 connection to an Alaska Airlines flight. LOOKS like American Eagle could save exiting security and having to re-enter, but don't want too tight of a connection (or lots of extra walking/waiting). Either would be a continuous reservation because of codeshares. LOVE any feedback you can offer!

     

    You will be outside security at LAX once you go through US Immigration and Customs. Either connection should be enough time, but you will have to go through security again at LAX.

    I am flying out of terminal 4 this Thursday night, and my friend is flying out the same time out of terminal 7. We both have 3 hours to kill for the layover in lax. Are we able to meet halfway between both terminals to grab dinner WITHOUT walking outside the terminal to the curbside?

     

    No, the only terminals at JFK that are connected inside security are 2 and 4.

     

    Sorry, I thought you were at the wrong airport. Yes, you can walk from 4 to 7 inside security using a tunnel between 4 to 5 to 6 and then a walkway to 7.
