Flying Delta airlines Sydney - LAX - Mexico City on the one ticket. There is only a 1.5hr layover at LAX is his sufficient time with checked baggage. Queried it with travel agent and was advised that if did not work would be put on next flight as is on the one ticket but may look at different options if layover too short thanks
That is barely enough time if everything goes perfectly. There will be no "next flight". If you miss your connection you will get sent to Atlanta and then onwards to Mexico City.
Hi, I'm flying from Hong Kong to LAX (terminal B) and then a connection to Phoenix on American Airlines out of terminal 4. 9:25 arriving in LAX, and 12:48 from LAX to Phoenix. Is that enough time to clear customs and make the flight? Thanks!
No problem...Terminal 4 is right next to Bradley terminal...Walk out of Bradley and turn right... Maybe 100 yard walk..
Hi, We are arriving on a QF flight from SYD at 6.35am, and flying on Southwest at 8.45am, is that enough connecting time? Which terminals do they both operate from? Do we clear customs in LAX or SFO?
You will arrive in the International Terminal, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, and go through US Customs, then take your bags to Terminal 1, re-check them with Southwest and go through security. This is a very difficult connection. I would switch to a later flight out of LAX.
Thank you so much! I have changed the reservation to a later flight at no extra charge and with no hassles at all! Love love love Southwest!
I believe I arrive at T4 on AA 170. Do I clear CBP at T4 or have to walk to TBIT to clear CBP? I have a connecting flight on AA to PHX at 16:25 on the same ticket. Thanks for any clarification you can provide.
As far as I know the T4 CBP is open, although the flight could now arrive in the TBIT as AA now has preferred access to some gates on the south side of the TBIT, however, it appears that AA170 almost always arrives at gate 41 in T4.
