    I am arriving from MUC @ 15:25 on Lufthansa flight and my next flight is with United to KOA @ 17:12. Is this enough time to connect ? Thanks, Paulo

     

    That's a very difficult connection. You will arrive in the International Terminal, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then walk to Terminal 7, go through security and to your departure gate.

     

    thanks. Any tips on how to fasten the process? can the airline give you any kind of support ?

    What is the re-check desk for bags you keep referring to? I am coming in term 1 going to term 2. Are the terminals connected to walk or do I take a bus or train

     

    There is no re-check desk in Terminal 1 as it does not handle International Arrivals. Terminals 1 and 2 are not connected inside security you have to walk outside security along the curbfront. What airlines are you flying? Where are you coming from and going to?

    We will arrive via Delta from Atlanta. We have a 11 hour layover. We will then fly via Cathay Pacific to HongKong. Will we need to retrieve our luggage in LAX then recheck them the for the second leg? I believe we will arrive in terminal 5 and leave from Tom Bradley.

     

    If you purchased two separate reservations or if your layover is overnight you will have to claim your bags from Delta and re-check them with Cathay.

  • Baggage claim and Recheck for Delta at LAX
    Feb 16, 2016

    My family and I are moving back from Belize to the States. We will be flying Delta with initial port of entry as LAX. Since we are moving we are going to have an excess amount of baggage (15 max size containers) that we will have to pickup at baggage claim, take through customs, and then recheck. Does anyone know how if there are any services available from the airline or LAX, that can help us? It is going to be very difficult to move that much baggage (along with 3 kids) through customs and to the recheck area. Any advice or thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

     

    Why did you post the same question a third time?

     

    I didn't. I have no idea how that posted again today! Anyway I talked to Delta and they are going to have someone meet us at the gate, although the rep said they had no idea whether they would be able to help us or not. We did reduce our baggage by 2 pieces. Still a lot but my 8 year old will have to step up and push a cart. As far as shipping we don't have enough to make the considerable cost worth it. I will let you know how it works out when we get there. Thanks for answering my posts

  • Connection from T4 to T6

    Hi I am arriving from NewZealand landing at T 4 And have a connecting flight to Seattle on Alaska airlines all on the same ticket will I have to clear security ? Is T4 connected to T6??

     

    Your flight from New Zealand will likely arrive in the International Terminal. You will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then walk to Terminal 6 and go through security.

     

    I am flying American Airlines from Auckland it says on my ticket arriving at T4 which Where I think AA goes to will I have to still go thru US Customs ect...

     

    T4 immigration is not open early in the morning when the Auckland flight will arrive - I highly suspect that the flight will use the International Terminal instead.

     

    Ok thanks for your reply mate👍

    my flight from Peru (LAN airlines) arrives 8:55 a.m at TB. I am trying to make a separately ticketed Delta flight to Texas at 12:45 pm. Will this be enough time? Is it correct that I will go thru passport check, claim my luggage, go through customs, then out of TB to get to Delta terminal? I will have to check my luggage on to Delta flight, then go thru security then on to my gate. Thank you

     

    Yes, that should be enough time and you have the process correct.

     

    thank you

     

  • Connecting flight to SFO

    Hi, I am flying into LAX at 6:30am from Australia on the 7th March and have booked a flight to SFO at 10am on flight 708. I'm not sure what terminals either flights are in yet, we will have checked baggage, do we have enough time to make the connection?

     

    You will arrive in the International Terminal. Your departure terminal depends on what airline you are flying to SFO - what airline are you flying? You should have enough time.

     

    Thanks, we are flying on United Airlines

     

    Then you will depart from Terminal 7/8.

    Hi I arrive at LAX on terminal 6 and I have a 50 minutes connection time to get my next flight at terminal 4. Is it enough time? I Thanks

     

    Yes, that is enough time if both tickets are on the same reservation. T6 is connected to T5 and T4 through underground pedestrian tunnels inside security.

    There should be carts available at the international baggage claim

     

    Right. I know they have those little carts, but it will take like 5 of them for the amount of baggage we have and none of my kids are strong enough to push them, That leaves my wife and I to push 5 and wrangle kids. We have done it before, but it is not fun and I was hoping that maybe there was some kind of service available like requesting a bigger cart or even a porter.

    No, there is no such thing in the international baggage claim. If you have more baggage than you can physically handle maybe you should consider having it shipped.

    please advise how much tim ei need minimum to get from southwest terminal 1 then on to fly international to AUS, Says flight lands at 8pm, probably late by half hour, so land at 830pm, and next flight leaves qantas to AUSTRALIA at 1130pm....

     

    Yes, that should be enough time.

     

    Even for southwest known to be late always?

     

    Southwest has a pretty good on-time record, especially into LAX where weather is never an issue.

     

  • Southwest connection with Hawaiian Airlines

    Flying into LAX on Southwest to connect to Hawaiian. I'm researching now, will I really need to leave secure area in one terminal only to go back through security in another? Is there a way to stay in secure area? Thank You!

     

    They use different terminals that are not connected. Yes you have to exit one and go through security again. Also if you have checked bags you will have to claim and transfer them yourself.

     

    Thank you for the confirmation! I could not believe what I was reading, I've been through so many tunnels there, I was sure 1-2 must have one. bummer but Thank You!

    I am arriving in terminal 3 on Spirit at 8:07a and departing out of terminal 4 on American at 9:32a and wanted to know if there is adequate time and if I will have to go through security again.

     

    That is just enough time as long as you don't have any checked bags and check in online for your AA flight. You will have to go through security again in T4.

     

  • TBIT to Terminal 5

    Please advise if that's enough time to make our connection? arrives at 13:55 LAX Terminal TBIT Flight to SLC Delta Airlines DL2004 departs at 16:35 LAX (Terminal 5 ) So 2 hours 40 mins to make the connection. Thanks in advance :)

     

    What airline are you flying into the TBIT on? Are both tickets on the same reservation or two separate ones?

     

    Hi - we are arriving on BA and via two separate bookings - so we will need to collect our baggage and re-check in with Delta

     

    In that case that connection is possible but doesn't leave much time to spare if there's a delay.
