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.
Hello.. My wife and 2 yr old kid will be arriving on 09-Dec at International terminal. Is there Skycap or Porter service available to help them with the baggage? If yes, can they hire them before custom clearance? I am looking for any information that might help them with baggage from carousel to custom clearance until they come outside.
There is no such service in the International arrivals hall.
I have 2 children 16/17 arriving from UK in December. They are arriving at terminal 7 and leaving from the same terminal (United). My question is once they have cleared immigration do they follow connecting flight signs or baggage claim as I know they will have to clear customs. I am trying to do them a step by step guide and I have only been to this airport once so any help would be much appreciated. Thank you.
