arriving on EVA Business class (but checked luggage) into LAX at 2125 from TPE have global entry and so also TSA pre-check, but still have to pick up a checked bag any possibility to make a Southwest Airlines connection at 2230?
No, even with all that I don't think it's enough time. You won't make it to T1 with your bag before the bag check cutoff.
Hi I am tying to plan our flight schedule to LAX on October 5 to connect with a Fiji airways flight that will be departing at 11:30pm. How many hours should I give to arrive in time? I'm sure we will be rechecking luggage and probably security again. We will be flying in on American Airlines. If I go ahead and book the flight arriving at 6:45 pm will that allow plenty of time ?
I am landing in terminal 6 on an alaska flight from Seattle. I have two hours from when I land to when my Norwegian flight departs from Terminal B. They're two separate tickets, so I have to get my bags in terminal 6. How long does that usually take - should I have enough time?
You have barely enough time if everything goes perfectly. It's really risky with checked bags.
I booked a flight from SJC to LAX, and another flight from LAX to CUN on the same day. The LAX to CUN flight is through Aeromexico, and I won't have any checked bags. Will I have to go through security again? Thanks.
What airline are you flying into LAX?
Flying into LAX from SJC on Southwest.
Yes, you will have to go through security again in Terminal 2.
Have short connect thru LAX June 8. Have carry on only. Want advice on quickest way from Terminal 5 to Terminal 2. Most on line info is out of date. AA says I do not have to go thru security at terminal 2 because I have carry on only. Not counting on that advice. Connecting from AA to Westjet to Canada. Any current advice appreciated. Walking works for me. Thanks.
You will have to go through security again in Terminal 2. There is no inside security connection from Terminal 5 to 2. (well there is, but it's really obscure and difficult) How short is your connection?
Thanks. At least I have TSA Pre. Have just over an hour assuming incoming flight is on time. Best way from 5 to 2 as best I can tell is to follow sidewalk at ground level thru the parking garage area. Distance doesn't seem a problem but one site says there's construction which disrupts both vehicle and pedestrian traffic. Doesn't give advice on how to avoid which is why I've posted this. Again thanks.
hi I have a flight booked Sydney-LA arriving LA 6:15am DEC 2nd. I want to get the connecting flight to Costa Rica on Alaska Airlines which departs at 8:15am. Will I have enough time if I check in online from Sydney before I leave? I will have luggage. Thanks
That is barely enough time if everything goes perfectly.
Hi sorry just realised the flight gets in at 6:00am not 6:15.. takes the layover to 2hrs 15mins.. still too tight you think? Thanks
My boyfriend and I are flying Alaska from PDX to LAX, which lands at 1:15PM. We have a connecting international flight to Sweden on Norwegian to catch at 3:45PM. We do have checked luggage, will this leave enough time?
That is just enough time if everything goes smoothly. You will have to transfer your bags yourself from T6 to the International Terminal and re-check them with Norwegian.
