Hi! I'm flying in to LAX from Singapore and arrive in Terminal B at 6plus am - is Terminal B TBIT? My connecting flight is at 10plus am on Southwest at T1. After I clear customs at Terminal B, can I re-check bags at same terminal or do I have to go to T1 to check in my bags? Thanks!
Yes, B and the TBIT are the same thing. You will have to take your bags with you to Terminal 1 to re-check them with Southwest.
Hey there! I'm just wondering if 2 hours and 30 minutes enough connecting time in lax? I'm arriving on delta and leaving on Philippine airlines, I still have to get my bag in lax since they're booked separately
That should be just enough time if your Delta flight is on-time.
Hi there. I have another flight option which would see me arriving from Charlotte into LAX at 10:30 on the 13th Jan. Then the departing flight to Auckland is not until 23:10. This is all with American Airlines. Am I allowed to exit the airport in between flights to have a look around LA?
Yes, you are allowed to exit the airport and come back before your flight.
I am looking to book a flight arriving from Charlotte into LAX on 20.33 on the 13th Jan and leaving LAX for Auckland at 23:10. This is all with American Airlines. I have never flown through LAX before and wondered if there was enough time? Thanks!
Yes, that is plenty of time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Arriving on a separate booking on United (probably, not booked yet). Need to catch international flight out of TBIT later in the day. no luggage. Questions: Is it possible to remain inside airport/security and check in for China Air flight? do they have a way I can check in at the Gate since I am already inside the airport? I don't mind having to go through security again, I am just concerned about exiting the safety of being inside the airport.
For the above, airport is LAX.
There is no "China Air". Are you flying "Air China" or "China Airlines"? They're different. It really depends when you arrive. You will likely have to leave the secure area to check in at the check-in desk at the TBIT.
Sorry about that. It's China Airlines. So it is United (Terminal 7 or 8?) and then China Airlines to Asia. Never traveled internationally. China Airlines' site says they have online check in, but not sure if this allows gate check in with home-printed boarding pass like domestic flights I have been on (since I presume they need to check my Passport).And thanks for your help by the way! Anyway, I was hoping to be able to use the tunnels and am leery about leaving what I believe to be the safe(r) zone.
We are arriving at LAX terminal 5 at 10:14 pm on Delta and have a connecting flight on Air France at 11:55 pm from Terminal B. Is this a long enough layover and do we have to claim our bags and check them again?
If both flights are on the same reservation and your flight from Detroit is on-time that is enough time. You don't have to claim your bags in LAX if both flights are on the same reservation. It is now possible to go from T5 to the International Terminal inside security using pedestrian tunnels and the new connector building.
