  • Getting from TBIT to terminal 5
    Apr 8, 2016
    We arrive at TBIT on a QANTAS flight from Australia @ 0600 11/26/2016. We then have a DELTA flight from terminal 5 @ 1000. Is 4 hours enough time to collect baggage, clear customs and immigration and get over to terminal 5 and check on to the domestic DELTA flight to Orlando? Also whats the fastest way to get between terminals?


    Yes, that is enough time. The fastest way between terminals is to walk.


    That's great, I have heard that DELTA have a check in desk at TBIT right after customs and we can check our bags in there rather than drag them all the way to terminal 5... do you know if that's the case?


    If your bags are not tagged to your final destination, then you have to take them with you to T5 to re-check.

    Hi, I only have about 30mins between my two flights. I have to go from Terminal 6 to Terminal 4. Is it possible? The flight is PHL->LAX->SJC. Thank you!


    The flight arrives at 904 PM and next flight leaves 940 PM


    That will be difficult. Your flight to SJC will actually depart from the American Eagle remote terminal which requires taking a shuttle bus to.


    Where should I take the bus? The bus is in Terminal 4 or terminal 6? Thank you!


  • 2 Hr. Layover to depart from same terminal

    Hi I will arrive from HNL to terminal 4 at 6:00 AM and have to take a plane departing from the same terminal (same airline and even the same door) to MIA at 8:00 AM. Is there enough time to go through the whole process? Thanks.


    Yes, that is plenty of time. There is no process you have to go through in LAX.


  • Transfer from Terminal 3 to TBIT for international flight

    What is the best and quickest route from Terminal 3 to Tom Bradley International Terminal with 2.5 hours time?


    Walking is fastest. They're right next to each other.


  • United to Hawaiian
    Apr 7, 2016
    will 2 hours and 20 mins be enough time to get from United to Hawaiian airlines?


    At LAX


    If the United flight is domestic that should be enough time, although it will be much more difficult if you have checked baggage.


  • International Flight connecting to another International Flight at LAX
    Apr 6, 2016
    Quick question. My flight is scheduled to arrive back from Cambodia at 5:00pm on August 9th, and I was planning to book a separate flight leaving for Paris, France that same day later at 8:15pm. Both flights will be arriving and leaving from Terminal B LAX. Would this be ample time to make my flight for France? Factoring customs/immigration when I arrive from Cambodia, baggage claim, re-checking in, security, etc? Any insight would be appreciated. Cheers!


    That would be just enough time if everything goes smoothly.


    Thanks for your input!

    I am going from HNLLAX on Hawaiian arriving at 11pm then connecting to Delta departing at 1245am to ATL. Is this enough time? What terminals are they located and do I have to go through security again? What's the best or quickest way to get between these terminals? I only have carry on.


    You will arrive in Terminal 2 and depart from Terminal 5. Yes, you will have to go through security again. The best way between terminals is to walk.


  • Terminal 4 to 1?
    Apr 5, 2016
    We only have an hour between connecting flights between terminal 1 and terminal 4. Any advice? Will we have to go through security? If we do, will they be nice and help us get through?


    That's not enough time. You shouldn't have tried to book that connection. With checked bags that would be completely impossible.


  • AA to AA or AA to Alaska ?
    Apr 5, 2016
    Two adults and five teenage Girl Scouts arriving LAX from Belize and continuing to Portland this summer. Two options availalable -- a 2:45 connection to an American Eagle flight OR a 3:40 connection to an Alaska Airlines flight. LOOKS like American Eagle could save exiting security and having to re-enter, but don't want too tight of a connection (or lots of extra walking/waiting). Either would be a continuous reservation because of codeshares. LOVE any feedback you can offer!


    You will be outside security at LAX once you go through US Immigration and Customs. Either connection should be enough time, but you will have to go through security again at LAX.


  • Terminal 4 /7
    Apr 5, 2016
    I am flying out of terminal 4 this Thursday night, and my friend is flying out the same time out of terminal 7. We both have 3 hours to kill for the layover in lax. Are we able to meet halfway between both terminals to grab dinner WITHOUT walking outside the terminal to the curbside?


    No, the only terminals at JFK that are connected inside security are 2 and 4.


    Sorry, I thought you were at the wrong airport. Yes, you can walk from 4 to 7 inside security using a tunnel between 4 to 5 to 6 and then a walkway to 7.

    Arriving from MEM via Delta at 5:15. Do we have enough time to get our bags and clear security for an 8:15p.m. Norwegian Air depart? Or best to choose an earlier option??


    Yes, that's enough time if everything goes smoothly.


  • Is 35 minutes enough time?
    Apr 4, 2016
    We'll be connecting on Delta from SLC to OGG, with only a 35 minute change time (Delta schedule change). Never been to LAX before - is this enough time?


    And we won't have any checked luggage, it's a morning flight.


    As long as your flight from SLC is on-time that should be enough time. It obviously leaves no time to spare if it is delayed.

    How much time should I allow for connections coming in on Southwest and going out at 12:45pm to Tokyo on a weekday Also; what is the best way to get from Terminal 1 to the international Terminal? Thanks!


    The best way between terminals is to walk. If you have checked bags try to arrive at LAX before 9:45 AM.


  • terminal 4 to terminal 2 & immigration (international traveller)
    Apr 3, 2016
    hi, iam have flight from Vancouver to Doha with 6 hr layover in this sufficient time go through immigration & costume. & change of terminal 4 to terminal 2. i have to go through immigration at terminal to again.?i have non immigrant visa.


    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Vancouver. If both tickets are on the same reservation and you are flying AA to LAX, you just have to take the American Eagle remote terminal shuttle to Terminal 4, then walk to Terminal 2 and go through security. There is no US Immigration or Customs when leaving the US.


  • Moving between terminal 4 and international terminal
    Apr 2, 2016
    I have a 15 yr old arriving on American term 4 and connecting to Cathay Pacific international terminal. Is it a complicated transit? Is it walkable? Any Tips? Thanks !


    Yes, it is walkable. There is now a walkway inside security from Terminal 4 to the International Terminal. If bags are checked through and he or she already has their boarding pass they can go straight to their departure gate in the International Terminal.
