    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 www.ifly.com/lax, then click on "Terminal Map" under QUICK LINKS and scroll down to the detailed text.

    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!
