  • transiting through lax from melbourne to new york on united
    Oct 31, 2015
    We will be arriving at lax on ua 99 at 6.50 am from melbourne, then departing on ua 1469 to new York at 9.00 am, is this enough time. I would assume? that our bags will be checked through as same airline. how far from international terminal to terminal 7/8


    That should be enough time. You will have to claim your bags to go through US Customs then immediately re-check them. It's about a 10 minute walk from the International Terminal to T7.


  • AA connection to Tahiti Nui
    Oct 25, 2015
    Arriving from Charlotte 10:35pm 10/27, connecting to Tahiti Nui 11:50pm, sound like a doable connection ?


    It is enough time if your AA flight is on-time but doesn't leave a lot of time to spare, especially if your bags aren't tagged through to PPT.


  • clearing customs and connection time sufficient?
    Dec 17, 2014
    My family and I are flying in from Vancouver (Canada) with Alaska Air and have a short connection time (57 mins) between our arrival in LAX and another flight to Mexico. Both flights are through Alaska Air and Terminal 6, do you know if we will need to go through US customs and will this connection time be sufficient?


    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Vancouver on your way to Mexico. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate at LAX. You have plenty of time.


  • Getting from domestic to int'l terminal with bags and a small child
    Dec 4, 2014
    Hi - Can anyone advise what we will be facing when we arrive at LAX on a domestic flight with three suitcases, a stroller and other carry-on bags and a baby and need to transfer to the international terminal? Are there porters? trolleys that can be used between terminals? international check-in facility at the domestic arrivals terminal? Or will be need to somehow haul it all on and off transit buses? with thanks, Lisa, Australian


    For me to provide any specific help you need to tell me what airline or airlines you are flying.


  • Rechecking baggage?
    Nov 11, 2014
    If you are transting through LAX from Vegas to Toronto, but arrive and depart from Terminal 4, do you need to go through immigration and recheck baggage?


    No, you do not go through US Immigration when leaving the US. You will go through Canadian Immigration when you get to Toronto.
