I'm looking at purchasing tickets from Melbourne to LAX through AA/Qantas landing at 6:35am with a connecting flight to San Antonio also through AA leaving at 9:35am. Will this be enough time and what is the process upon landing and departing? Also all tickets will be purchased at the same time.
I am arriving from Australia with Delta DL40 to Terminal 5 on Monday morning and have a 3 hour layover - time to buy a US sim card for my Samsung Android cell phone. What is the best place/kiosk or newsagent ? - within LAX terminal to buy one and some credit for 1 month stay in the US ?
Note that you will arrive in the International Terminal, not Terminal 5. Buying SIMS in in airports really isn't a thing in the U.S. unfortunately. You'll have to go to a prepaid wireless store or a wal-mart after you arrive in your destination.
Thanks for the info.. Just queried with Delta reservations and they say I arrive from Sydney DL40 in TERMINAL 5 and after a layover depart Terminal 5 DL 511 on Monday 8th August ?? Now I am confused .. If I do land and go through Customs somewhere else at LAX .. How difficult time wise is it to get to Terminal 5.
Yes, you are correct, all other carrier's flights from Australia arrive in the TBIT because all other immigration facilities are not open that early in the morning, but the Delta flight does arrive in Terminal 5.
How much time does it usually take for luggage to exit the planes at LAX? We are flying in from FLL and trying to schedule a car service to pick us up, but I"m not sure how much time to allow, and how far of a walk it will be. We are scheduled to arrive at 12:56pm, is 1:45 a good time?
I will be arriving at LAX to attend a conference, I will be in early before the shuttles start. Is there anything like a restaurant available at the terminal 7 baggage claim? Or are they all within the secured area?
The Terminal 7 baggage claim is a crowded space that barely has enough room for the baggage carousels. There isn't even really anywhere to wait there.
