Hi! If I need to pick up my pet from one airline's flight in baggage and recheck in with a different airline, is 1.5 hours pushing it too closely? Thanks, just not sure how big or busy that airport can be.

I don't think that is enough time. LAX is a very busy airport and sometimes going between airlines takes quite awhile. I would want 3 hours at a bare minimum.
Hi, I am flying Sydney to LAX on Virgin Australia and arrive LAX at 6am. Do you think this gives me enough time to clear customs, collect bag and make my way over to international departures for a flight to Cancun (United Airlines) at 9.30am?

Yes, that should be enough time if everything goes smoothly. Note that your flight to Cancun will NOT depart from the International Terminal. It departs from Terminal 7.
Hi, I am flying in from Sydney on Virgin Airlines, arrive LAX 6am. I am looking at flights to Cancun that leaves LAX at 9.30am on United airlines. Do you think this will give us enough time to clear customs and collect our bags, then check in again at departures? Thank you!
Hello! I am wondering how long between flights (same airline, both flights booked as one flight/ticket) would be need to transfer and go through customs at LAX between a flight that goes Seattle > LAX > Costa Rica? Is 1.5 hours enough time?
Yes, that is enough time. There is no US Customs when leaving the US.
