I fly from Dallas to LAX, and I'll have 3 h 45 mins layover. And then connection to international fly from LAX to Taipei. Does airport recheck my check-in baggage when I connect to international terminal?
What airlines are you flying? Is it one reservation or two separate reservations?
I am flying in from Tokyo at 11AM to Tom Bradley International Terminal. How much time should I allow to get my luggage go through customs and then walk or shuttle to Terminal One Southwest Airlines without having to worry about time. Is three hours enough time.
I'd want at least 3 hours
I am flying in from Tokyo to LAX/ Tom Bradley International Terminal at 11AM how long should it take to get my luggage past through customs and walk to Terminal One (Southwest Terminal)' How much time should I allocate so I don't have to be pressured for time. Thanks for your help. This is a great forum.
I'd want at least 3 hours.
Hello and thanks in advance:
I am flying SWA to LAX domestically. I'm then flying out on an international flight to Australia on Delta.
Same thing in reverse on the way back.
Delta International flights leave 10:30pm, and arrive back in USA at 7:45am.
How much time should I allow on the ground at LAX to get to the international terminal (Delta) from wherever the SWA flights land?
allowing for customs, and not rushing.
- Thanks,
Tory
You need to arrive at LAX before 8 PM and you need to depart LAX after 11 AM. Southwest uses Terminal 1. Delta uses Terminals 2, 3, and the International Terminal.
Thank you! Perfect.
I am arriving on a delta flight to lax at 545 am terminal 3 and connecting to a delta flight from lax at terminal 2 at 645 am - this is a flight I booked through delta - do I have enough time and what are the logistics thx

If the first flight is domestic all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. If you have to change terminals, Delta runs a shuttle bus between Terminal 2 and Terminal 3 inside security. You should have enough time.
I'll be using Delta and will be arriving at Terminal 2 or 3 at 4:45 pm and will need to get to Terminal 5 for a Hawaiian Airlines flight at 6:05 pm. I have no check in bags. Is this enough time?
It's possible if you check in for your Hawaiian flight online, but it leaves no time to spare.
Hi,
We are flying with Great Lakes into terminal 6 and need to get a virgin america flight from terminal 3 to SFO. How much time should I allow? We will have a 20kg bag each to check in.
Virgin America no longer uses Terminal 3. They use Terminal 6. So all you have to do is claim your bag and re-check it.
I will be getting in at 10:00 AM on Southwest. Will I have enough time if our flight for All Nippon leave the TBIT at 12:45PM. Is it quicker to walk or wait for the shuttle?
That's just enough time if everything goes smoothly. At that time of day it's probably faster to walk.
We have a connection on United. Thinking it will be coming in T6. Can we get to the smoking area in TBIT without going thru security. We have an hr and 10 min layover. Or is there any other smoking areas?
It is possible to go from T6 to the TBIT inside security but you don't really have a lot of time to spare.
Also, United doesn't use T6, they use T7 and T8.
