  • Is 1.5hrs long enough flying from Guadalajara to LAX via Phoenix
    Nov 29, 2015
    Hi there. Irish passport holder. Traveling to Guadalajara soon. Will be first time flying through US also. I have booked return flights from LAX to GLD via Phoenix with US Airways. I have learned that when you connect in the US from an international flight you need to collect check-in baggage and then recheck in. My question is: on the way back from GDL to LAX I have 1.5 hrs layover in Phoenix. Will I have to collect and recheck in my baggage there, or given that is same airline, will the baggage go all the way to LAX and I'll go through the processes there?


    When you are traveling to GDL, you won't have to do anything in Phoenix. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. On your way to LAX from GDL, in PHX you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, then re-check your bags at the transfer desk, then go through security.


    Thanks ZAP for the reply. So do you think 1.5hrs is too tight?


    I think that's enough time.

    I am flying into PHX from Omaha on US Airways and connecting to a US Airway flight going to Sacramento. Will the gates be close?


    The US Airways facility at PHX is not exceptionally large. All US Airways gates at PHX are connected inside security.

    Need to get from Hawaiian(Terminal 3) to US Air(Terminal 4); claim baggage and re-check in at US Air. Arrive 10 pm Depart 11:59 pm. Do we have enough time? Tips?


    Yes, that should be enough time if your hawaiian flight is on-time. You can check-in online for your US Airways flight before you leave Hawaii.


  • transport assistance with 37 minutes layover

    I'm familiar with PHX airport and at 64 years old find the sprint between 'fingers" of Terminal 4 almost impossible to make. How do I arrange to ride on one of those passenger cars that are always beep-beeping their way through the terminal? Thanks


    You need to call your airline and request wheelchair assistance.


    I don't need a wheelchair. I need a faster method to get to my gate in the 30 minutes I have and am not up to running the entire length of Terminal 4. My last flight they were going to close the doors on me when I finally got to my gate but I insisted. I'm interested in those golf cart type vehicles that have a driver and carry maybe 4-6 people.


    Yes, those carts are for people who require wheelchair assistance.
