We are returning to the us from barcelona at 755pm... we need to catch a 945 flight on a different reservation to portland. Will we need to go through customs, leave security to get our bags, then re enter through security?? If so, how long should we expect this to take?
forgot to mention.. in on Iberia and out on Alaska
I don't think that's reasonably enough time. Yes, you will have to do all of those things and also move from the International Terminal to Terminal 6 in the middle.
Hi all, I'm arriving at LAX @ 635 (QANTAS) from Australia, and then planning to fly directly to Mexico City (Volaris). I'm assuming that I will have to collect bags go through customs, change terminal, check bags, and go through exit customs. Any ideas on how long this will take - I'm looking at a flight that would give me 4.5 hrs to achieve this. Thanks in advance!
You have the process correct except that the last step is security, not exit customs as there is no exit customs or passport control from the US. Yes, 4.5 hours sounds sufficient.
Hi, I will be flying SYD - LAX - MSP. I have a 3 hour transit in LA. I also have 2 young children flying with me. Will I be able to get a skycap service to help me pick up my luggages from the international airport carousel and then go to the domestic airport to check in?
No, there are no skycaps in the International baggage claim. Instead there are free carts you can use.
Hi there. I am coming from SLC to LAX then going to Prague(end stop) via Amsterdam. 1. Do I check my bag on SLC all the way thru or carry and check in LAX? 2. When at LAX, do I have to walk out of domestic terminal to go to international or is it all connected? We saved for Delta One (intl only) and want to use that perk. Any help would be greatly appreciated. :)
If all the flights are on the same reservation you won't see your bags again until you get to Prague. In LAX all your gates will be connected.
We will be arriving from the Philippines at 7;00 pm on Philippine Airlines. Do we have enough time to catch up the 9:25 pm flight of American Airlines to San Jose? We have checked-in luggage and have to pass thru the immigration.
