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.
My Phil Airlines flight from Manila is scheduled to land at LAX 9:00 AM. My flight to Toronto is at 12:50pm via West Jet. Would there be enough time to catch the Toronto flight? Thanks
Yes, that should be enough time if the flight from Manila is on-time.
Is there AA Priority Access Security line in Terminal 5 at LAX? I see there is one in T4, but cannot find any information on terminal 5 security for AA Priority lines?
I don't know, you can always check and if you don't find one, run over to T4 if the regular line in T5 looks bad.
Hi, we are non-us citizens flying Eva Air from manila to lax. Arriving 7am and need to clear immigration and customs then take a 9am Delta domestic flight. Is two hours enough time?
On two separate reservations I'd say that is very risky, especially if you have checked bags. I would try for a later flight.
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.
Thank you, ZAP
Does American fly International flights out of Terminal 4 ???? Or Bradley like everyone else?
Most of their international flights depart Terminal 4. They do not have a check in desk in the International Terminal. They also use gates in Terminal 6.
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.
Hello, my wife and newborn are traveling from Arizona to lax. Is it possible to meet her at baggage claim to assist with her checked luggage, car seat, stroller?
Yes, domestic baggage claims are public areas. You will have to park in short-term parking. Find out her airline as LAX has 7 different domestic baggage claims.
Thank you so much
Hello. I arrive in LAX from Costa Rica at 11:55am and depart for Seattle at 1:10. Is that enough time to make it through customs (no checked bags). Will we have to go through security again?
Yes, you will have to go through security again after you clear customs. What airline or airlines are you flying?
In April I will be flying with my partner (he will be using a German passport, I will use my Australian passport) from Melbourne, Australia to Los Angeles. We have two separate tickets on two different airlines. We arrive at 6:35am to Terminal B at LAX and then have to get to Terminal 2 to take a flight from LAX to Mexico City. Will we have enough time to pass through immigration, collect our bags, get to Terminal 2 and check in for our second flight? I'm not sure if it makes a difference but we will both have ESTAs. Thank you in advance for any help!
That is barely enough time if everything goes perfectly.
Thanks Zap, that's what I thought :(
