I am planning to fly Air France from ppt to lax then connect to delta flight to JFK. How much time is needed for this layover considering we will need to clear customs, recheck, travel between terminals, etc ? Thanks in advance!
If it's all on the same reservation you need 2 hours. If it's two separate reservations you need 3 hours.
My flight on Quantas lands at 6:00 am and American flight leaves at 8:20 am. Is that enough time and what are the steps to get from Bradley to terminal where American is located?
You will arrive, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, follow signs to T4/5 and go through security and through the connector building to your departure gate.
We arrived into LAX from SYD on UA at 6.30am (based on stats this usually lands 20-30mins earlier..) and fly LAX to HAV on Alaska at 8.55am. Have checked baggage.

Is this enough time? Realise it's tight but is it possible (excluding possible flight delays)?
What's the quickest way to get from TBIT to T6?
Yes, that's possible. The fastest way is to walk.
Thank you.

I presume we will have to pick-up baggage, pass customs in TBIT and then walk to T6, re-check baggage, clear security and then immigration? Or does the new connecting building mean we don't have to re-clear security (which would obviously save a lot of time...)?
You have it right except you go through Immigration before you claim your bags, not when leaving the US. Since you have to transfer bags yourself and are coming off an international flight, that means you have to leave security.
Arriving LAX Terminal 2 at 0640hrs on Singapore Airlines, departing Terminal 6 at 0855hrs to Havana on Alaska Airlines. Is 2h 15m enough transit time if I don't have check in bags?
Singapore Airlines uses the International Terminal. That is barely enough time if everything goes perfectly.
Arriving LAX 7:30am American Airlines Flight 491. Depart LAX to YVR 9:13am. Is this enough time to transfer from Terminal 4 or 5 to Bradley?
Your flight will not depart from the Bradley Terminal. it will be in Terminal 4 or 5 (or more likely the American Eagle remote terminal which is accessible from Terminal 5 via bus). Yes, that is plenty of time.
Thank you very much
Hi there, if I take the tunnel connection from Terminal 4 to TBIT do I still have to go through security again? If I do have to go through security again, can I just go through it at terminal 4 then go to my international gate, or do I have to actually go through security at TBIT. I have a flight DEN to LAX then LAX to HND (Tokyo) and my connection time in LAX is 2 hours so I just want to be safe. I plan on checking my bags through to my final destination so I shouldn't have to worry about getting my bags.
It's actually a building, not a tunnel, and that's the point of it - you won't have to go through security again.
I heard about changes in LAX. Arriving LAX 7:30am Alaska Air flight leaves 9;45 what about luggage transfers and terminals is there enough time?
Yes, you will arrive in Terminal 6 and depart from Terminal 2 or 3. Is it two separate reservations? If so that's just enough time.
Arrive tomorrow at Lax T4, 8,37 from LAS (AA) and connecting flight to SFO (AA) at T5, 09,30, is it enough time? Which is the faster way to get there? Should we have security control when we arrive at T5?
You can walk between T4 and T5 inside security. You have enough time.
I am flying into Terminal T2 by delta and have connecting flight from t3 to Vancouver, Canada. I have 1.30 mins layover . Trevelling with family of 4 .. (2adults and 2 kids.) First time flyer into LAX. Thanks in advance for info.

1. Do I have enough time to reach to terminal 3 ?
2 .Do I have to go through security check again ?

Delta runs a shuttle bus inside security between Terminal 2 and Terminal 3. You have enough time.
Will have checked luggage to retrieve then go to Southwest airline to check in luggage and go to gate, how much time do I need between flights?
You realistically need 2 hours between flights if the United flight is domestic and 3 hours if it's international.
