Arriving to LAX from SFO with United and have 40 min to departing flight to Vienna. Is that enough time?
Realistically, no, that is not enough time. You will have to go all the way from T7 or T8 where you arrive to the International Terminal. Even though they are now connected inside security, you have to go through Terminal 6, 5, and 4 to get there.
thanks for your reply. How long does it take to walk from T7 to international, do you know?
My daughter is flying alone from Australia (Qantas) to Boston via LAX, on a through ticket. Wondering if she will have enough time to clear customs on entry to US and get to her domestic (American Airlines) flight with a connection time of two hours? On her return from JFK to Melbourne, she will be on Qantas ticketed flights both legs transiting through terminal B with one hour connection- this should be ok?
On her way to Boston in LAX she will go through US Immigration, claim her bags, go through US Customs, re-check her bags at the re-check desk, walk to Terminal 4 and go through security and to her departure gate. On the return to Melbourne, all she has to do in LAX is walk through the new connector building from Terminal 4 to the International Terminal and to her departure gate.
On 2 separate tickets, our AA flight gets into Terminal 4 at 9:40 and we leave out of Terminal B on Fiji Air at 11:30. We are not checking bags but I'm not sure if we have to leave the terminal to get our Fiji ticket or can we use the walkway and avoid going through security again? Also, is this enough time?
You will have to leave security to check in for the Fiji Airways flight. You have enough time if the American flight is on-time.
I need to book a flight from PHX to LAX, need to know what time I need to be at LAX. Flight leaving 1:00am on Air China. If I book with American to get to LAX I will be at terminal 4, How much time do I need to get to the next gate and go thru security?
Do you have checked bags or not? I'm guessing your planning on buying two separate reservations?
i will arrive at Lax 10.23 am on AA and then will take Cathay pacific to HKG at 12.55 pm will i make it with separate reservations. thank you
That is just enough time if the first flight is on-time and domestic. If you show your Cathay confirmation to the AA agent in your origin city, they may check your bags through to Hong Kong for you, which would save you some time.
Please ignore previous post regarding terminal 3 to 5. I am landing at terminal 4 from Atlanta on American and have 55 minutes to catch a connecting American flight from Terminal 5 - can you please advise the best way between terminals and if i will have to go through security again thank you
In that case you will not have to go through security. There is a tunnel from T4 to T5 inside security.
Thank you. Would you happen to know how long of a walk that is? And/or is there a bus between terminals that doesn't go outside security?
I'm arriving at terminal 3 from atlanta and have to get to terminal 5 for connection to san francisco i only have 55 minutes - what is the most timely way to get from 3 to 5 and will i have to go back through security
You have to run and you have to go through security again. You have no chance if you have checked bags. You might barely have enough time if you only have carry-ons.
