  • 36mins change over
    Aug 29, 2012
    I am landing in LAX with United (domestic flight), and have only 36minutes to get to my international flight, which is also with United. I am worried that this is not enough time. What possible problems/issues should I be prepared for? Also, will I need to collect my luggage from the domestic terminal, or will it be transported for me to my international flight? Lastly, as I will be transferring to an international flight, will I go through all the passport/customs etc procedures when I first check into my domestic flight, or when I get to my international flight? I thought I needed to be at the airport at least 3 hours before taking an international flight . . . . Any assistance would be much appreciated. Thanks.


    At LAX, United serves Terminals 6, 7 & 8. While T6 & T7 can be accessed via tunnel, a short walking path connects T7 & T8. If you need to switch terminals, you need to go through security check at your departure terminal - 36 mins would be extremely short for a transfer. (Arrive at your initial airport 90 mins prior to your flight departure - your bags will be automatically transferred to your connecting flight). Only international ARRIVALS need to go through customs clearance procedure. For more information, open, then click on "Terminal Map" under QUICK LINKS and scroll down to the detailed text.


  • 40 minute layover

    Does anyone know if all of United Flights (arriving from ORD, Chicago - Departing to OGG, Maui) will be in the same terminal? I only have a 40 minute layover and want to know if that is enough time. Thanks


    United uses both terminals 6 & 7, United Express Terminal 8; On arrival look at the overhead screen to find your connecting terminal & gate (T6 has gates 60-77; T7 gates 70-77 & T8 gates 80-88. T6& T7 are connected by underground tunnel and T8 is connected by a short walkway to T7. On entering your connecting Terminal you need to go through security check before proceeding to your gate. Hurry!
