  • LAx transfer bags from Southwest to Quantas
    Jul 14, 2013
    1
    I am flying into LAX on Southwest before transferring to Quantas to Sydney. Can my bags be transferred or do I need to leave the terminal, get my luggage, return through security and have it rechecked to Quantas? Any idea how long that will take?

     

    Southwest does not transfer bags to or from any other airlines. You will have to claim your bags and take them to the TBIT for your QANTAS flight. I would leave 2.5 hours to do that.

     

  • Meeting place inside Int terminal

    I have someone meeting me after I come through passport control & customs. Where would be a close spot for them to meet me? Possibly a coffee shop Thanks

     

    Best place to meet is in the Arrivals /baggage claim area, near the information counter.

     

  • computer systems down at Customs Border

    Why does the Customs Border Patrol have unreliable computer systems and have no backup? I connected through LAX last week and almost missed my connecting flight because CBP computers went down and Customs held the passengers in a hallway and refused to process most passengers. The Customs computer systems are mission critical and need a hot failover backup system so that passengers can be processed without interruption. My taxes should be better used to help travelers get through LAX faster, not wasteful government spending.

    My daughter 17 years old is flying into LAX to connect a light to Miami. she is not accompanied for the first time. She will need to go from terminal 4 to terminal 2, she has 6 hours between the 2 flights. Where can find any assistance for her?

     

    Why do you think she needs assistance? 6 hours is a ton of time. I'm sure your 17 year old can read a map and signs.

     

    Thks for your prompt reply, reason first time in LAX, safety reasons, she is French and she speaks english.

     

    LAX is not a dangerous place.

     

  • luggage carts

    My wife and daughter are flying into LAX with our grandchildren, ages 4 and 5 months. They are carrying 2 suitcases, 2 cosmetic bags, 2 carseats, and a double stroller. They will have to take a shuttle to rent a car. Does lax have luggage carts that could accommodate all of this?

     

    You can't take a cart on the shuttle, so there isn't much purpose of one.

     

  • Going to Sydney

    My wife and I will be flying in on United from Baltimore and arrive at LAX at 8:30 PM. The connecting flight on United leaves for Sydney at 10:10 PM. Will that be enough time? This is our first international flight. Will we have to go thru customs in LAX? Thanks.

     

    Yes, that should be plenty of time. All the United gates at LAX are connected beyond security and are an easy walk. You will not have to go through any immigration in LAX on your way to Australia, only on the way back.

     

  • JET BLUE TERM 3, GET LUGGAGE, HOW LONG
    Apr 22, 2013

    IS 2 HOURS ADEQUATE TIME TO GET MY LUGGAGE FROM TERMINAL 3(JET BLUE) AND CATCH UNITED FLIGHT IN TERMINAL 7? HAVE TO RECHECK BAGS. WILL I HAVE TO GO THRU SECURITY AGAIN?

     

    Is this at LAX? Yes, you will have to go through security again. You will have to hope your first flight is on time an then take either the airline connections shuttle on the lower level, or preferably, run across the area between the terminals. You will barely have enough time.

     

    US Airways is at terminal 1 should i book connecting flight on US Airways? It is closer than term 7 to jet blue(term3)? Same plane, same flight, but under US AIRWAYS. Just wondering, if plane is skywest will I go to Us Airways terminal 1 or United terminal 7? Probably should just drive home from LAX to Fresno- 3.5 hrs!

     

    The terminal will be the OPERATING carrier. If it's a Skywest United Express flight it will still be going from United's terminals - In this case it would actually leave from Terminal 8 but you'd go through security in Terminal 7. If that flight is your only option then yes, you should probably just plan on driving.

     

    Thank u so much- u helped me out a lot.

     

  • changing terminals for connecting flight

    I am looking at a flight from LAX to HNL. We would arrive on Alaska Airline and need to get to Terminal 4 for AA. It is a connecting flight and our luggage would be transferred. Layover time is 1hr 45mins on a Monday morning (10AM.) Is this doable? I understand there is a shuttle for terminal transfers, would you suggest that or should we walk? We would just have carry-on totes. Thanks for any help or suggestions.

     

    For the Terminal 6 -> Terminal 4 connection you are suggesting I would probably walk as the shuttle runs counter-clockwise and you'd have to ride it nearly all the way around. It should be doable in that amount of time.

    I am an ederly gentlemen who will need immediate assistance when I get out of my shuttle at the front of the Bradley Terminal. Is there a Red Cap I could hire to wheel my luggage to check in at China Airlines?

     

    At LAX, Skycap service is available in front of the terminals across from the ticket counters.

    How long is the wait, typically, in Terminal 1 TSA security screening - especially during a Friday business hour departure time?

     

  • Where are the electrical outlets ?

    some of american airlines seats have electrical areas and other places have none...finding a map of outlets would be great. BTW I found a wallet today at the airport and I gave it to a check out AA teller but how do i find out if the Owner found the wallet or not? curious me

     

    While you did your good deed for the day when turning in the wallet at the AA counter - I doubt you will be able to find out if owner has been advised. Usually wallets, passports & IDs are turned over to the TSA people.

     

    Thank u for the information.

     

  • Left Luggage facility

    I have 2 questions regarding my LAX arrival and departure. I will arrive at 1:30 P.M. on an international flight, Korean Airlines, then connect to a domestic flight American Airlines at 11P.M. That's around 8 hours layover. I plan to leave the LAX and go to church to attend a Sunday Mass. 1) Is there a Left luggage facility in LAX where I could leave my luggage? 2.) What is the nearest Catholic Church iat lAX?

     

    According to LAX you need to contact your airline to arrange baggage storage. For Church services you need to open http://search.yahoo.com/search?p=Los+Angeles+catholic+church&ei=UTF-8&fr=moz35
