Hello,
Wondering if this connection will be too tight:
- Landing at Terminal B from Tahiti on Air France at 18:35
- Checked baggage
- Canadian citizens with GlobalEntry/TSAPreCheck
- Departing from Terminal 6 on Air Canada at 20:55
- Separate booking reservations

Thanks in advance!
That should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.
I am arriving in LA with SQ and would like to take a connecting flight to SF with Virgin America. Is 3 hours sufficient to clear immigration, collect my luggage and check into my flight from LA to SF?

Thanks!
Yes, that should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.
I am coming in on Fiji Air, have AA domestic connection (these are separate bookings) 2 hours later. I am Global Entry/TSA PreCheck. Is Fiji Baggage claim in TBIT? Will be headed to Terminal 4/5 for AA domestic. Haven't been through LAX in years. Any tips on getting from baggage in TBIT to Terminal 4/5.
Yes, Fiji Airways' baggage claim is in the regular TBIT International baggage claim hall. T4/5 is right next to the TBIT so just go outside and carry them there. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Hi - is 2 hours enough time to get from T6 > Tom Brady International with bags?

We're flying into T6 with Virgin America from Las Vegas, arriving at 16:17.
Then need to catch the 18:20 Norwegian Air flight to London Gatwick from Tom Brady.
We're British incase that makes it longer to get through security.

We had an extra 30 mins but our flight home has been moved since booking flights so we depart sooner than I wanted now! :(
That's just enough time if everything goes perfectly.
Not ideal though as things rarely do go perfectly in airport land! Do you know whether we will need to go through security again or if we can use the terminal tunnels between 6 and Intl? The tickets are booked separately due to FF points.
Because you can't thru check bags to Norwegian from any airline, you would have to exit security regardless to go to their counter. If you're close on time [I think Norwegian has a 60 min prior deadline to check bags] I would get a cart and push the bags on the sidewalk from 6 to Bradley rather than risk how long a connecting bus might take to make it's way around LAX in potentially congested traffic.
Hi there. I am flying on DL from Syd to YVR via LAX
When they were booked the flights were both using T3 and I had 2 1/2 hours to make the connection.
Now they have changed to flying into T 2 and out of T3 with a 1 hour 50 min connection.
How easy is it to get between the two?
Are queues traditionally long at approx 745am ?
Delta won't let me change the flight to a later one for free as 'it's still a legal connection' :(

You will actually arrive in the International Terminal. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
My daughter is arriving to LAX terminal B at 1740 from Dublin where I believe she can do immigration upon check in. Could she make a 1900 departure on Southwest? She will have checked luggage. Next flight out is 2100. Thanks!
Actually she will pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Dublin. So all she has to do is claim her bags and then take them to Southwest in Terminal 1 and re-check them and go through security. The 1900 flight would still be very difficult. I recommend the 2100.
I am considering a flight after the first of the year OMA to LAX on AA6067 arriving LAX @ 8:50 connecting with Philippine Air PR0113 LAX-MNL @ 11:20. Will be checking bags and am considering first class on the AA flight to expidite transfer. Will I and my bags make the connection? Will I be able to check my bags through from OMA-MNL?

Thanks in advance!
You won't be able to check your bags through. You will have to claim them from American and take them to PAL to re-check them and then go through security. That should be just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Thanks for the info! Of course, the flights have now been changed! Selecting another set with a 4 hour layover now
I will be flying in from Vegas in a American domestic flight to LAX that lands at 9:57pm . Do i have enough time to connect to the international terminal with EVA air that leaves at 1130pm ? If not, how much of a buffer do I need to catch my flight?
That's not realistically enough time. On two separate reservations you realistically need to arrive at LAX before 9 PM.
Thanks! I'm planning my commute before I buy the tickets. Also, How long does it take to get through customs and obtain baggage if arriving to LAX from an international flight?
How do I get from T7 to T3 without going through security
You can't. You have to exit security and walk or take the shuttle bus.
Will Be arriving on Air Canada 793 in April 2018 at 8:48pm have a connecting flight with Fiji Airlines at 11:30. Will this be a tight connection.
Since you pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto, You should have plenty of time. All you have to do is claim your bags from Air Canada in Terminal 6, take your bags to the Fiji Airways check-in desk in the International Terminal, and go through security.
