We are travelling PHX to LAX on American and then to Auckland on Air NZ.We assume American will use Terminal 4 and Air NZ TBIT. Will we need to collect and relodge luggage at LAX? I assume we can walk between terminals?
You will likely actually arrive in Terminal 6. If you purchased two separate reservations, yes, you will have to claim your bags from AA and re-check them with Air New Zealand in the TBIT. Yes, you can walk between terminals outside security along the curbfront.
Hi flying Delta Sydney to Calgary with Lax as transit. Is 2 hours layover enough to connect westjet-code shared delta ticket. Any info on customs baggage and security
You will arrive in Terminal 5 or 6 or 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 to Terminal 2 and through security. You have barely enough time if everything goes perfectly.
I have a friend from Germany flying from Fort Lauderdale on Spirit Airlines to LAX. She has about 5 hours time there until her next flight, but she has to go through customs to get her next flight ticket and go BACK through customs to get to her plane...is this enough time??
There is no US Customs or Immigration when Leaving the US. She just has to claim her bags from Spirit, check them with her second airline, and go through security. She has plenty of time.
We are flying via Charlotte on AA arrive 1850 and then depart via Qantas to Australia at 2205. Do we have too pick up bags go through TSA then to TBIT?
If both flights are on the same reservation you don't have to do anything with your bags. Just take the underground walkways and the connector building from your arrival gate in T4 or 6 and your departure gate in the TBIT.
We are traveling on an AA flight arriving remote terminal 6 and will be flying China Southern to Guangzhou. If we only have carry on bags will we be able to connect inside security to the international terminal or will we need to go out of the security area and rescreen at the international terminal?
Yes, you can go directly to your departure gate via the shuttle from the remote terminal and then the underground walkways and connector building. However, if you can't check in online for your China Southern flight you will have to get it from your departure gate.
