  • changing terminals for connecting flight
    Apr 10, 2013
    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.

    Anything fun to do at LAX?


  • Is there a red cap at the Bradley Term?
    Feb 18, 2013
    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.

  • TSA In Terminal 1
    Jan 4, 2013
    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 ?
    Dec 13, 2012
    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
    Nov 13, 2012
    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


  • 12 hr lay over--baggage question
    Sep 28, 2012
    On my way to South America, I have a 12-hr gap in LA. I arrive 10 am and leave 10 pm on a flight to Bogota via Hollywood. Does anyone know whether my bag will be automatically transferred to the Hollywood flight? if not, will I be able to check in my bag for the hollywood flight 10 or so hours before it leaves? It would be great if I could just take my carry-on bag with me while I explore LA for a few hours.


    Where you arrive and depart from at both LAX & FLL aiports (Terminal & gate) depends on which airlines you will take. Therefore, I suggest you open both and /fll - then click on "Terminal Map" under QUICK LINKS and scroll down to the detailed text for airlines and connections. Some airlines do not transfer bags to a different airline's connecting flight - contact your airlines to make sure. If they do not transfer, you need to claim your bags on arrival, then re-check them in at the connecting terminal's airline counter. At each leg of your journey make sure you have a boarding pass.


  • Paging
    Aug 16, 2012
    Is there no way to page someone at US Airways at LAX?


    LAX site does not specifically mention paging - try to call their general contact at (310) 646-5252.


  • Enough time to book in LAX
    Aug 4, 2012
    We are flying from San Diego to LAX arriving at terminal 4. I have allowed 3 1/2 hours from the time we touch down in LA to pick up our bags and make our way to terminal 3 for check-in and security for a flight back to Australia. My questions are: Will we have to go through security when we come into LAX from San Diego? Have I allowed enough time to collect bags and walk to terminal 3. We were going to walk to make it faster. Will we have enough time do all of this? Our flight check-in closes one hour before the flight. Thanks in advance. Cheers


    Have you made sure that the Airline you use (American?) departing SAN does not transfer your bags to your departure gate at Terminal 3 (Virgin Australia?) If it does, you need not pick up your bags at T4's arrival. In either case, you need to exit T4 and go through security check at T3. T3 and T4 are on either side of the international terminal TBIT. You can walk, from T4 to your right, passing TBIT and on to T3. OR you can take the LAX bus Route A on lower arrival level island (in front of each terminal), under sign 'LAX shuttle airline connection', which runs every 12-15 mins. and takes 5 mins.


  • First Timer at Immigration
    Aug 3, 2012
    I will be flying into LAX with SIA (Singapore) whereas my friend (first time travelling outside of China) is flying into LAX on China Southern. My flight arrives about 13:00hrs whereas his flight arrives about 18:30hrs. I hope to accompany him through Immigration but not sure if I can remain inside (before security and most probably baggage not collected yet) for so long waiting for him. I like his first trip to US to be pleasant and therefore wondering how I can help him.


    You both will arrive in LAX at the Bradley (TBIT) terminal. However, as all international arrivals need to go through passport control, pick up bags and go through customs clearance first, it would be best that you both meet up in the Arrivals Hall. Your friend will be guided by signs and should just follow the crowd, as TBIT is for all international arrivals.


    Thanks for your reply. If he should encounter problems at passport control and not sure how to answer (language challenges) is there anyway I can be of help to him? We work for the same company in China though I am based in Singapore as I am a Singaporean
