We are arriving 8AM AA from SJC and on seperate reservations flying 11:30 am on China Air. Will we have to collect bags and go thru security again? Thanks
We are coming in from SJC on SW not AA, so we will be going from Terminal 1 to Terminal B. Will we have enough time?
Yes, you will have to claim your bags, walk or take the shuttle to the TBIT, then re-check them with your departing airline (there is no "China Air" - there is Air China which flies to Beijing and China Airlines which flies to Taipei, make sure to go to the right one), then go through security. You should have enough time.
Hi. Returning home from Albuquerque to Calgary. I'll arrive at Terminal 4 at 7:13 a.m. and my WestJet flight leaves Terminal 2 at 8:45 a.m. I have only carry-on luggage. Is this possible and how do I do it? I walk with a cane and am a bit gimpy.
That's barely enough time if everything goes smoothly. Note that if you are flying American Eagle from Albuquerque that you will likely arrive at the American Eagle Remote Terminal and the shuttle will actually take you to Terminal 6 from there.
Hi I am flying from Boston to LAX on delta. i arrive at terminal 8 at 9:30 pm and have my connecting flight to Sydney on Quantas airlines at 10:55. How do I get to the inetrnational terminal from T8? Thanks!
Delta does not use Terminal 8. You will arrive in Terminal 5. Do you have checked bags and are your tickets purchased on two separate reservations or one reservation?
How do I connect between terminal 7 and 2
You can take the shuttle on the lower level or walk straight across the parking garages (walking is faster). You will have to go through security again in T2.
Hi, I arrive LAX International Terminal on Korean Air from Incheon Korea at 15:10, then have connecting flight "COMPASS AIRLINES doing business as AMERICAN AIRLINES" at 18:20. Both tickets are on the same reservation, through Korean Air. Question: is there a compass Airlines re-check desk there, upon clearing immigration and do I have enough time? Also, where to find the walkway from Int. terminal in LAX to terminal 6? Thank you.
You won't find a Compass desk anywhere, you will look for stuff marked American. Anyway, your bags will be checked through to your final destination, but in LAX 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 go outside and walk along the roadside to Terminal 6, go inside, get your AA boarding pass if Korean can't issue it, then go through security and take the shuttle bus to your departure gate in the American Eagle remote terminal. You should have enough time.
Thank you. Which terminal is the American Eagle "remote terminal"? I looked on-line and found a map of LAX, which lists American at Terminal 4 and 6, and American Eagle at Terminal 4. There isn't a remote terminal listed anywhere, unless it is at the far end of Terminal 6 or 4? If I go to Terminal 6 and get boarding pass from American, then go through security in terminal 6, there is a shuttle bus within terminal 6? Thank you
Hi, could you please clarify this comment you made in relation to my comment directly above? Thank you!

"...then go outside and walk along the roadside to Terminal 6, go inside, get your AA boarding pass if Korean can't issue it, then go through security and take the shuttle bus to your departure gate in the American Eagle remote terminal. You should have enough time."
I am foreigner fly from Japan ANA airline to San Franciso but require to transit at LA under co flight with UA. Do I need to check out my luggage and go through immigration ? Which terminal shall I go? Is 2 hours sufficient ??
In LAX, 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 go outside and walk or take the shuttle to Terminal 7, go through security and to your departure gate. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
can I stay inside security when transferring from United domestic to Southwest airlines? will have no checked luggage.
No, Southwest's Terminal 1 is not connected to ANY other terminals inside security. You have to go through security again in Terminal 1.
PHX-LAX (Delta)-FCO (Alitalia). Single ticket, checking bags in PHX. Layover is 100 minutes. Enough time? How is the tunnel form terminal 4 to TBIT?
Yes, that should be enough time. The connector from T4 to the TBIT is actually above ground is apparently quite nice. T5 to T4 is a tunnel.
Will that person have to go through security again in TBIT, or is all that within the secure area?
Hi !!! I am flying with Fiji airways to lax international and have connecting flight to sfo domestic where do I need to recheck my bags n how do I get to domestic terminal for American airline
If you purchased two separate reservations you will have to take your bags with you to Terminal 4 to re-check them with American. You just walk there from the International Terminal where you arrive.
It's connecting flight
OK, then you can drop them at the re-check desk in the TBIT before walking to T4 to go through security.
I realize that HA will not check my luggage through from HNL to BWI. I am thinking of booking a flight that gives me 2 hr 55 min in LAX. The HA terminal and SW are next to each other. Is that a possible connecting time? Thank you
Yes, that should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.
