I am scheduled to arrive in LAX (United Terminal) at 6:01 PM. My flight to Aukland on Air New Zealand leaves at 8:55 PM. Will I have enough time to transfer?

No checked bags, separate tickets
No Sweat...With no bags you can shuttle around to Bradley terminial between terminal 3-4

Flying Delta airlines Sydney - LAX - Mexico City on the one ticket. There is only a 1.5hr layover at LAX is his sufficient time with checked baggage. Queried it with travel agent and was advised that if did not work would be put on next flight as is on the one ticket but may look at different options if layover too short thanks
That is barely enough time if everything goes perfectly. There will be no "next flight". If you miss your connection you will get sent to Atlanta and then onwards to Mexico City.
I have a one hour 40 min window. Once we deplane T6, do we have enough time to get our plan at T1? Do you have to go through security check again?
Yes, you will have to go through security again in T1. Do you have checked bags? If so this will be very difficult.
Hi, I'm flying from Hong Kong to LAX (terminal B) and then a connection to Phoenix on American Airlines out of terminal 4. 9:25 arriving in LAX, and 12:48 from LAX to Phoenix. Is that enough time to clear customs and make the flight? Thanks!
No problem...Terminal 4 is right next to Bradley terminal...Walk out of Bradley and turn right... Maybe 100 yard walk..
I arrive SWA Terminal 1 at 10:05 am on a Tues and need to connect to an international flight leaving from TBIT at 1:30 pm. 1 checked bag. Will I make it?
Also, is the Airline Connections "A" Shuttle the best way to transfer btwn these terminals?
Unless your bag is very difficult to carry I would walk. You should have enough time.
Travelling on Qantas from Sydney to LAX, landing at 6:15am with a connecting flight on Virgin America to Orlando, departing at 9:15am. Is this enough time?
Yes, that should be enough time if the flight from Sydney is on-time.
If I arrive in LAX at 7:30 pm from JFK and I have a connecting flight to Fiji at 9:30 pm the same day. Will two hours be enough for the connecting flight?
I think that will be really difficult. Checking in for a Fiji Airways flight is somewhat of a slow manual process.
Hi, We are arriving on a QF flight from SYD at 6.35am, and flying on Southwest at 8.45am, is that enough connecting time? Which terminals do they both operate from? Do we clear customs in LAX or SFO?
You will arrive in the International Terminal, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, and go through US Customs, then take your bags to Terminal 1, re-check them with Southwest and go through security. This is a very difficult connection. I would switch to a later flight out of LAX.
Thank you so much! I have changed the reservation to a later flight at no extra charge and with no hassles at all! Love love love Southwest!
Hi, I'm flying in to LAX from SYD Australia and land at 6.30am. Will I be able to make an 8.45am NYC flight? They are affiliated airlines (virgin Australia and virgin America)
That is just enough time if they are on the same reservation.
I believe I arrive at T4 on AA 170. Do I clear CBP at T4 or have to walk to TBIT to clear CBP? I have a connecting flight on AA to PHX at 16:25 on the same ticket. Thanks for any clarification you can provide.
As far as I know the T4 CBP is open, although the flight could now arrive in the TBIT as AA now has preferred access to some gates on the south side of the TBIT, however, it appears that AA170 almost always arrives at gate 41 in T4.
