I'm arriving from a domestic flight to LAX terminal 5 at 10:50, and my next flight is at 12:35 in Terminal B (TIBH). I don't have any checked luggage, but I also cannot get my boarding pass until I am at LAX. Will I have enough time, and will I have to go through security again going to TIBH from terminal 5? Can I check in at the gate?
Sorry, I mean Terminal TBIT
You can walk from T5 to the TBIT inside security. However, it depends on the airline whether or not you can check-in at the gate in the TBIT or if you have to check in outside security at their check-in counter.
I am arrive on a United Flight entering LAX at either Terminal 7or 8. I need to get my connecting flight to New Zealand which leaves at Terminal 2 on Air New Zealand. What is the best way to get over to Terminal 2? I also have a long lay over. Is there a McDonalds in Terminal 2 outside of security?
Air New Zealand hasn't used Terminal 2 for several years. They use the International Terminal. There is a large food court in the International Terminal that I believe includes a McDonald's. You can just walk to the International Terminal.
I am transiting through LAX airport and I am afraid about the connection time regarding the fact that all passenger seem to have to get their baggages and drop them again before jumping in the connection flight. My details: 1. Wed 28 June: Arriving at LAX (Terminal B) at 06:55am (Virgin Australia VA7) _ Connection (Terminal 2) at 10:12am for Orlando (Virgin Australia VA6604 - Operated by DELTA AIR LINES). 2. Sat 1 July: Arriving at LAX (Terminal 2) at 21:40pm (Virgin Australia Operated By Delta Air Lines VA6604) _ Connection (Terminal 2) at 22:44pm for Sydney (Virgin Australia VA6551).
Do you think this is enough transit time to catch both connections? Thank
Those connection times are sufficient. On your way back to Sydney you don't have to do anything with your bags in Los Angeles.
Hi, arriving on an international flight at 1335 into TBIT, connecting to a virgin America flight at terminal 6 at 1535. Is that enough transit time? Doing the return journey, arriving at Terminal 6 at 1602 and catching an international flight out at 1750. Code share carriers - assuming on the return I can check my bags through? Is that enough time to transit?
Thanks appreciate your advice.
Yes, that should be just enough time on the way into the US and plenty of time on the way out.
Hi - realised I may have made a mistake and pay to amend my flights. My worry is that a Virgin Atlantic flight booked to arrive at 16.10 (T3) and fly our with Hawaiian Air at 18.05 (T5?). I'm thinking it's not enough time to clear immigration (as non-US) collect bags, check in at Hawaiian, clear TSA in 1hr 55m. Feel like it was a rookie error.
Virgin Atlantic does not use Terminal 3. They use the International Terminal. You realistically do not have enough time for that connection with checked bags. Yes, Hawaiian uses Terminal 5 at LAX.
