Hi, I'm flying from Los Cabos, Mexico to LA and will be arriving in LAX Terminal 2 at 6:30 PM, I have another international flight flying from LAX to Singapore, leaving at 10:35 PM. Is 4 hrs enough for clearing the customs, getting my checked bags, checking in United Airlines (terminal 7) my Singapore flight, and go through the security? Thank you!
My son is flying from Melbourne to LAX on United Airlines in July. He was supposed to go on to Seattle, but now we need to fly him to Sacramento. We can buy a ticket LAX to Sacramento to avoid high change fees, BUT will he be able to get his bag during customs and take it on the LAX to Sacramento flight?
Yes, he will have to claim his bag in the International terminal to take it through US Customs, then he just has to leave the International Terminal and rip the tags off his bag and re-check it with whatever airline you book him on to Sacramento. I recommend leaving 3 hours between his flights.
Hi everyone, we’re flying into LAX at 1:55pm via Southwest (terminal 1) on Tuesday, May 29th and we have a flight (not a connecting flight, purchased separately) at 3:40 with Alitalia (Terminal 2). Do you think it’s doable to get from Terminal 1 to Terminal 2, check in with Alitalia, go through security and get to our gate on time? We wont have any checked baggage, just carry ons. This is all assuming the flights will be on time. Thanks!
With no checked bags I think you can just make it if the first flight is on-time.
Hi, I'm flying from Taiwan to LA and will be arriving in LA at 7:10am, i have another domestic flight flying from LA to MSP, leaving at 11:10 am. Is 4 hrs enough for clearing the customs, getting my checked bags, checking in my domestic flight, and go through the security? Thank you!
Hi, We are non US citizens flying from S'pore via UA arrive LAX 10.40am at Terminal 7. Will we be be able to make a domestic connection on Sun Country airline at Terminal 5 departing 1.00 pm.? We will have checked baggages. We will check in online for Sun Country flight , but not sure if we can print boarding pass ourselves or we need to do it at airline counter.Not sure about the cut off time to drop off bags for domestic flight. I read about a newly opened, secure airside walkway & seems It is possible now to connect between T5, and T7 without exiting security. to LAX. Would I have a good chance of making the connection? Are officers at immigration/customs line receptive to requests to let passengers with tight connections to get pass a 'shorter' line?
With checked bags the walkway will be of no use to you because you will have to take them to the Sun Country counter in T5 to re-check your bags. You have less time than I recommend. There are no "express" lines at Immigration. You stand in the line dictated by your nationality or passport/visa status.
