Is it possible to buy a sim-card at LAX, so that I will be able to use my phone upon landing from Denmark? Or is there free wifi in any location within the airport?
Prepaid SIM cards in the US are much harder to find than in other countries - I've never seen one sold at the airport. Whether or not your phone will just work in the US when you turn it on depends on what carrier you have in Denmark.
I have an Air Canada flight to LAX which arrives at 7pm and I need to board a Qantas flight to Melbourne at 9:30 pm. Is this enough time to check out luggage and check in again for international including customs and immigration. My travel agent assures me there is plenty of time. I have little faith in that statement.
You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. All you have to do if your bags are checked through to Qantas is go to the International Terminal and go through security. If your bags are not checked through to Qantas then all you have to do is claim your bags from Air Canada in Terminal 2, take them to the International Terminal, re-check them with Qantas, and go through security. There is no US Customs when leaving the US. You have enough time.
I am returning from SYD (Austrailia) and land in LAX at 7:15am, and have a connecting flight to ATL at 9am.... will this be enough time to go through customs, etc? Should I check my bag in SYD or carry it on?
What airlines are you flying? Are all tickets on the same reservation or two separate reservations?
Delta, same reservation
Then yes, that should be just enough time. Carry-ons only will obviously make things easier if you can do it.
Hi , My international flight is landing in LAX at 7:15 PM and have a southwest flight at 10:15 PM. Is the time sufficient to get to terminal 1 from international or should I be looking at a longer buffer time filght?
That's just about enough time. I Doubt you will find any later flights on Southwest so your only other option would be to spend the night.
I am arriving from Heathrow, London on a AA flight at 3.05pm. I don't depart until 10.40pm to Auckland on another AA flight, i will have luggage possibly in a backpack and not a suitcase. Would i have enough time and is it a simple process to visit Venice Beach etc?
Yes, you just take a taxi there and back. You will clear US Immigration and Customs upon arrival from London and free to go where you want. Arrive back at LAX 2 hours before your flight to Auckland, so leave the beach by 8 PM.
I arrive at lax terminal 2 on Aeromexico from Mexico City at 11:50am. Then I have to connect on a west jet flight to Edmonton, Alberta (also terminal 2) at 1:45pm Is this enough time?
I wouldn't try it. You'll have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags with westjet at their check-in counter and then go through security. without checked bags maybe it's possible under perfect circumstances.
flying Virgin Australia mid January with connecting Virgin America flight to New York all on the same ticket with a two hour stop at LAX is this enough time to clear customs
