Hi, hoping someone can help me! A few years ago I took a Virgin Atlantic flight shared with Delta, from LGW to LAX vis LAS and when I checked in at Gatwick, they gave me the boarding passes for all my flights. However, on the return flight, when I checked in at LAX (at the Delta area) for some reason I wasn't given a boarding pass for the second leg of the flight and was told I'd get it at the other end at Vegas. Yet when I got to Vegas, I didn't check in again, I just took the internal tram to my next gate, and there was nowhere there (at least not that I could find a machine) to print my boarding pass as I was "airside". I had been given a baggage sticker at LAX that apparently meant my bags had been checked all the way through.

I'm not the most experienced at flying and this was my first time to the U.S. - should I have somehow gone out through customs at Vegas and re checked in again? Or should I have been given all boarding passes at LAX? Hoping someone can help me, as this is putting me off flying in the US again as I'm so scared it's going to happen again and I'll get stuck in an airport or something! :( Thank you in advance. :)
You should have been given both boarding passes at LAX. if there was some technical issue where they could not, you could have gotten it at the gate in Las Vegas. There is no US Customs when leaving the US.
What's the cost of using SKYCAP at Southwest Airlines Terminal 1?
My sister will arrive on Southwest at 9:50am/ Term 1. I arrive at 9:55am on American/Term 3. What is the best way for us to meet?
Is it possible to get from terminal 1 to terminal 3 without having to reclear security.
Theoretically yes, but it's not well marked and I haven't done it. You basically have to walk back towards the security checkpoint and then follow signs to the D-gates, take the train to D, then follow signs to the United baggage claim which will take you to the E-gates/Terminal 3.
Flying in on Allegiant with carry on luggage landing at 3:30. Switching airlines to Southwest. Is two hours enough time between flights?
Do I have to go thru security again? Or do I just go directly to Southwest gate? Both are terminal one. Thanks for the help.
what is the easy way to get to D gates with no checked bags, I hate terminal 1, can I go to T3 and then take the train?
As long as you already printed out your boarding pass or you have it on your phone, yes, you can.
How far is Gate A15 from the baggage claim area.
It's not that far.
My daughter flies into C9 at LAS. She is a little nervous on where she will walk to in order to meet them. I told her to walk toward "baggage" and once she passes security, they will be standing there. I am unfamiliar with the LAS airport. Can anyone familiar with LAS help me to reassure her? Thank you.
Yes, this is pretty hard to screw up. LAS Terminal 1 has one large baggage hall.
I'm flying to LAS on United on the 8th of June, and I'm meeting up with family flying in from Toronto on Air Canada. We're staying at the same hotel (my uncle made these bookings). So where should I meet my uncle after I land, and is there a way I can carry a suitcase, a duffel bag, and a 20" guitar without making a mess of myself?
I am flying with American Airlines from Las Vegas to Chicago. Where are the check in counters of American Airlines located? and how do I go to D Gates of Terminal 1.
They are located in the main area of Terminal 1. There is a very easy to find train that leads from the security checkpoint in Terminal 1 to the D gates.
