We're arriving from London Gatwick at 5:05 on a Sunday and taking a separate (not connected) flight to Portland. I'm assuming we'd have to clear customs before rechecking our bagged for the second flight. My question is how long should I allow? I need to book the second leg and wanted to leave enough buffer time for customs and security.
I would want at least 3 hours between flights.
Awesome, that's what I was thinking, but I've never gone through customs. Thanks for the response!!
Hi I will be arriving from Australia at 0615 am and need to jump onto an AA flight to Miami which departs at 0900. I have checked baggage.. Will there be enough time to make the flight!? Thanks in advance
hi we are flying into LAX from New Orleans (stopover Houston) landing at 1451hrs terminal 7 then connecting to Hawaiian air dep terminal 2 at 1705hrs - not sure if can check luggage all the way through - will we have enough time?
That's just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Does anyone know if there is a separate security line for premium economy/business class passengers at LAX international terminal like there is at JFK and some other airports around the world ? I know the regular security line there can be a nightmare!
As far as I know in the International Terminal there is not, or at least I don't recall one.
Hi, I am arriving on Southwest to Terminal 1 at 1:40 PM next Sunday. I will be departing on Air China from Terminal B (international terminal) at 2:20 PM. I will have already printed off my boarding pass and will only have carry on luggage so I will not need to check in luggage at the counter. Will I have enough time? I can run if I need to. ;)
I hope your Southwest flight arrives early. That's a very difficult connection and you will have to run.
Yeahh, i decided to be a little realistic and book an earlier flight. :) Thanks for the quick response.
Hi, just about to purchase a Melbourne, Australia - Cancun, Mexico flight. LAX arrival is 06:35am with flight to Cancun leaving at 08:50AM - is this enough time to clear immigration, pick up luggage & get to whatever terminal I need to get to? thanks :)
What airlines are you flying? If both tickets are on the same reservation it should be just enough time.
