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.
I am scheduled to transfer from Delta to Latam at LAX. I am wondering if my relative who is not traveling could come inside and help me with claiming my baggage and dropping off at the connection terminal.
I am flying from Vancouver bc to Lax and am catching a connecting flight to San Jose, Ca. My flight gets in at 11:25 to lax and my flight from Lax leave at 12:30. I am not checking a bag, will I have to go through customs and immigration at lax or wait until I get to San Jose? Also will this be enough time to catch my connecting flight to San Jose?
You actually pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Vancouver. So if both flights are on the same reservation all you have to do in Los Angeles is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. What airlines are you flying?
Oh that’s great, I’m flying with west jet and it’s all on the same reservation I believe
Your second flight will be operated by Delta or American as Westjet doesn't fly from LAX to San Jose. If it's by Delta then you just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. If it's on American you'll have to change terminals and go through security.
