On Friday 9/15 we will be arriving to Lax from San Jose Ca at 3:30 on a southwest airline flight. Will we have enough time for our 2nd flight from Lax to IPL on Mokuele airline departure time is 5pm?
Im coming thru LAX Friday 2pm coming in from Costa Rica, Ive come thru several times and usually dont care the time from the plane thru customs and out to the sidewalk but I have someone picking me up right at 3-3:30pm and they have to be somewhere at a certain time so I was seeing what the average time was thru customs around that time , so I wont be a jerk and have them wait and just take an Uber.
My husband and I will be arriving LAX on Virgin Australia at 6:40 am on a Thursday morning. Is it possible to make a 9:45 AA flight back home? We both have frequent traveler numbers but will have checked bags. Thanks in advance!
HOW MANY HOURS DO I NEED TO ARRIVE IN LAX FROM FIJI, CLEAR CUSTOMS AND THEN CATCH A FLIGHT TO CHI ON AA?
HI I have an arriving flight with Qantas at 6am on a Friday, American Airlines has changed my next flight to Miami from 9.35am to 8.30am, as we've never been through this airport before can you advise if this is enough time to clear customs etc grab our luggage for AA flight I believe they're in the same terminal, if its not enough time could you please let me know an appropriate interchange time so I can book another flights
Thanks for any help Marguerite
Flying back from Auckland New Zealand connecting in LAX at 6:05am departing at 8:20 am to Bos. Is this enough time to make my connection? This is a legal connection time on AA. Do we have to go through a security check again & collect our bags? Do they have the Kiosk in customs?
We will arrive in LAX at 9:11 pm from Hawaii. Need to pick up bags and check in with Southwest for next flight at 10:40 pm. Is that enough time?
That will be very very difficult. You will have to have your bags at the Southwest check-in desk by 9:55.
I'm arriving at LAX on a Virgin Australia flight at 9am on a Thursday, Oct. 5. I am connecting on a Sea-Tac bound Delta flight at 11:30am from terminal 3. I believe I can drop my bags off for transfer, as my arrival is on a Delta ticket operated by VA. I have TSA-precheck. It has been booked as one ticket.
Yes, you can drop your bags at the transfer desk in the International Terminal. You should have enough time.
Guys, I'm arriving into LA on a Sunday in August - terminal 2, my friends are arriving from London into Terminal 7.

My friends arrive in approx. an hour before I do, but they have to go through US immigration/customs, where as I'm leaving from Ireland and will have done that already.

1. Will it take long for them to get through - would Sunday evening be busy?
2. Where would the best place be for us to meet - bearing in mind 2 different terminals, and we may/may not have phone coverage.
Hello. I will be traveling from LHR to LAX on Tuesday Sept 5 and am wondering if I land at 7:25pm and have a 9:40 or 10:15pm flight to the Bay Area if that would be cutting it too close? No idea how long customs will take on a random Tuesday afternoon. Thanks so much in advance!
Is it one reservation or two separate reservations? What airlines are you flying?
It is two separate reservations (I have yet to book lax-bay area, am doing that today). I fly New Zeland Air to LAX and then will book southwest to go north.
Then the 10:15 flight is barely possible.
