I'm booking a flight for Australian visitors from Melbourne w/layover in LAX before connecting flight to Chicago. Is 4hr 20m enough for process, including transferring checked luggage?
What airlines are you looking at booking them on?
United
Yes, that should be plenty of time. They will be able to re-check their bags at the re-check desk right after clearing customs.
Thanks, much appreciated!
i am arriving from Phoenix at Terminal 8 and have 2 hours between an international at TBIT. by having carry on and using the tunnels can i make it in time to TBIT
What airlines are you flying? Where are you flying from LAX to?
I am flying united to LAX and Singspore airlines from LAX. Thanks
Then yes, you have enough time, you can use the walkways/tunnels/connector building to get to the TBIT inside security.
I'm arriving SFO to LAX with 53 minutes to connect to my flight LAX to FLL. Arrive and leave from Terminal 3 same aorline - Virgin America.
Recommendations? Couldnt find more affordable flights with more time in between flights ...
Yes, that is enough time.
Arriving from Melbourne Australia land at 6.35am will have to collect bags and check in for Air Canada flight at 9.40am will I have enough time?
That should be just about enough time if everything goes smoothly.
So should I schedule a later flight?
I don't think you have to, but if you want to feel super safe, sure.
I have an AS flight that arrives at 7:30 in terminal 6 and a United flight that leaves at 8:30 from Terminal 7 or 8. I'm not checking any luggage. Will I be able to make the connection? Do I need to go through security again when I enter a new terminal? I can also take an AA flight from Terminal 4. Is that connection more realistic?
It's possible, Terminal 6 is connected to 7 and 8 inside security. The AA flight isn't any easier assuming the time is the same. This also assumes the AS flight is domestic.
Thank you. I appreciate the advice!
Arriving via Qantas to LAX International at 6.15am. Connecting flight Virgin America at 10.00am. Is 3hours 45mins enough time to allow.
Yes, that should be plenty of time.
I will be arriving on Qantas Airlines from Australia at 6am on a Tuesday and would like to book a connecting Delta flight to Atlanta at 9:30am. It is that enough time? The tickets are not linked.
Yes, that should be enough time.
Flying in JAN 09, Korean Air KE011 from ICN, arriving 14:00. I'm looking to book a connecting flight from LAX to DEN. What is the min departure interval I should look for for the flight? I am a US citizen, and have the new Mobile Passport app, carry-on only, nothing to declare. Thank you!
I would want at last 3 hours. Although having no checked bags makes 2.5 doable.
We have a short connection time of 1 hr 50 minutes arriving in Delta terminal 5 from Minneapolis and going to terminal 3 for the Virgin Australia flight to Sydney. I'm a little confused about where Virgin Australia departs from. The airline confirmed for me that I will get my boarding pass to Sydney when I check in in Minneapolis. I've seen some comments on line that the check in is in terminal 3 but the flight departs from TBIT. Since we will have boarding passes, could I just skip going to terminal 3 and go straight through to TBIT through the gate 4 connector to avoid security? Of do flights actually depart from terminal 3. What is the best way to go, walking vs shuttle (with a 5 year old)?
The Virgin Austalia check-in counter is in Terminal 3, but their flights actually depart from the International Terminal. Yes, since you should already have your boarding passes you can go directly to the International Terminal through the Tunnel to T4 and then the new connector building to the TBIT.
We arrive at 3:15pm on Southwest Airlines Terminal 1and depart on Moukolele Air at Terminal 6 at 5:30pm. Can we get from Term 1 to Term 6 without going through security again?
No, you have to go through security again in Terminal 6. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
ok, thank you!
