hi, flying Australia>lax via qantas with 6:30am arrival. can I make an 8:15am flight with southwest airlines? do I have enough time to clear international customs and re-check baggage? separate reservationS and check in baggage required. thanks in advance!
No, that's not realistically enough time. You need a bare minimum of 2.5 hours, preferably a little more.
thanks for the prompt response. I will change for a 9:23am AA flight instead. thanks !
I am arriving LAX at 10:00 pm from Costa Rica. I have a connection to Portland Oregon at 11:55 pm. Trying to determine whet her to carryon or check bag. How much additional time does it take through customs if I have to wait for luggage?
It might add 10-15 minutes. If it's all one reservation I think you'd be OK checking. If it's two separate reservations I'd lean towards not checking.
