Hey all, I'll be arriving at LAX on a Saturday, late morning, How easy is it for me to get public transit to downtown area?

I'll also be stopping there on my way back from another trip with a 12 hour layover. Is there anything I can do within those 12 hours? Do they have locker rentals?

I was at LAX today and observed a young girl emptying the entire contents of her suitcase into a trash can. As it turns out she did not have enough money to be able to pay for her luggage so she threw away all her belongings in the suitcase. 4-5 security people stood and watched this while the young girl sobbed and they did nothing. They offered no assistance or advise. After all her clothes, shoes etc were thrown away and she started to make her way to her gate via security, a security official instructed someone to have a janitor come empty the trash so nothing could come back on them. My sisters and I paid for her luggage and some nice gentleman who had been observing as well helped us take her clothes back out of the trash and put back in her suitcase. I want to know who the hell I can contact in regards to this pathetic behavior on the part of airport security

Appalling. What have we become? So sweet of you to assist her

I don't see how this is an airport security issue. That's something between the airline and the passenger. I don't see any security threats by emptying clothing articles into a garbage can. If airport security were to pay for every passenger who needs to check an additional bag they would have to borrow a couple thousands a week just break even. But just for mere curiosity; what would you suggest TSA do in this case?? You did a great thing.


I don't know who you contact but I want to thank you for what a wonderful thing you did. The world needs more people like you because there aren't many left. Thanks again.

You can maybe try TSA? Thanks for doing such a kind thing. We need more people like you in this world.

Hi, I was travelling from LAX to Sydney on V Australia on Monday, July 25th, terminal 34. I left a pair of leather, orange flat sandals in the terminal bathroom area. If found please let me know or does anyone know another way to contact the airport for lost items? Thanks.


I'm flying from Pittsburgh to Sydney. I'll be arriving at LAX with an hour and a half to get through customs, I imagine grab my bag and get it rechecked, and get from terminal 7 to B. Keep in mind I'll be arriving at 9pm to LAX so it's off peak hours I believe. Is it dooable?

Anonymous (not verified)

I read on the LAX website that if you arrive into TBIT that you do not need to exit and reenter security if your connecting flight is in terminal 1,2 or 3? Can anyone confirm this?

I arrive into TBIT from MEX at 6:15pm and have 1.5 hours before my connecting flight leaves from terminal 1. No checked bags, just a carry on and I'll print my boarding pass for the connecting flight in advance. Think I'll make it?

Hello. My name is Pasin from Thailand. My passport number is R-731464. I travelled from Los Angeles to Bangkok on 1 June 2011 with TG-795. I forgot a SONY VAIO green laptop computer at the security check point. It is in the pink soft case. I called TSA lost and found many times and left the message to the answering machine. However, there was no response from them. Could you please do me a favor passing this message to the right person to contact me and advise how to get it back. The laptop contains a lot of significant information about my education. So, I really need it. You can also contact my mum by "". My cell phone number is +66858102500, and +66819276401 is my mum's. I'm grateful to your help. Thank you very much.

Best regards,

Pasin M.

I will be arriving in terminal 3 and departing out of terminal 4. Is there a way to get to terminal 4 without going out of security and back in?

Travelling LAX to BNA mid day Sun 17th Southwest Terminal. Security line diverted to auxilliary screening area to handle the volume. I have hip replacements which set off metal detectors. Upon reaching the head of the line, I saw no body scanners. Did I have an option to ask not to go thru the metal detectors? If so, did I have a right to ask to be taken at the front of the line in the area in which the scanners were? It wouldn't be much of a choice if I had to go to the end of the line stretching out the building and down the sidewalk for several hundred feet as I would risk missing my flight. Instead, I endured an "enhanced body search". I promise, you want to avoid these if possible. Anybody with a similar experience or advice?

My parents are visiting USA and arriving at LAX on a Monday at 6:55pm. I understand that they need to get their luggage and go through customs before they can go check in for their domestic flight out of LAX to ABQ. The problem is, I was wondering if there would be sufficient time to get their luggage and go through customs within one hour? Their domestic flight from LAX to ABQ requires them to check in latest by 7:55pm. And this is not a connecting flight.

I would really appreciate any input I can get in regards to this matter.


Anonymous (not verified)

Valerie, this is not sufficient time to make this connection as the lines in International Terminal immigration are often long and get longer again when you have to clear security for the next flight. Would suggest 2 hours minimum and 3 to be safe. Hope this helps.


Arrive LAX from Mexico with about two hours to connect with a European flight with a different carrier. Do I have to clear US customs first? Is there anything I can do to expedite?

World Traveler (not verified)

Yes, When arriving from an international destination & the first United States airport that you arrive into, You do have to clear passport control & customs since all USA airports don't have transit hall (International arrivals only) in them due to security issues, etc... Allow extra time to recheck baggage,etc since you have to once again clear airport security before you can continue onto your connecting flight.... (Remember all duty-free liquids have to be put into your check baggage after customs before rechecking in your baggage since you can't take it with you though airport security)...

Enjoy the trip & happy/safe travels....

I will be flying with United Airlines from Melbourne, Australia via Sydney and then via SFO to LAX with a 3.30 hr layover in SFO. On arrival in SFO will I need to collect my luggage & go thru customs or will it go straight thru to LAX?

Anonymous (not verified)

On arrival in SFO, you need to collect luggage & go thru customs. Then TSA check again before boarding to LAX.

On the 2nd of January 2011 I caught a flight (American Airlines) from JFK airport to LAX. I then caught a connecting Qantas flight from LAX to Brisbane airport. When I had arrived in Brisbane I was told that my bag was still in LAX (although my husbands bag had arrived) and that it would be sent out a day later...

When my bag arrived at my house, I discovered it had been broken into while awaiting transit at LAX. My neatly packed bag was a mess.

A fund raiser- a breast cancer pink pocket knife given to me by my favourite uncle in NYC who has been courageously battling cancer for the past five years, two handbags, a travel hairdryer, my battery recharger for my camera, and two boxes of Floris soaps (a present for my 94 year old grandmother) were all removed from my bag. I also had an artists' wooden hand - a present for my son. I had closed it into a fist to make it easier to pack- but when I opened the bag the "robber" had modelled it into a rude middle finger pose. Very funny.

Who ever you are- perhaps an employee of LAX baggage handlers??- keep the rest and good luck to you- but please send the pocket knife back to me. I will even send you another to replace the one you stole from me- after all the pocket knife would mean nothing to you- but means so much to me.

Hey i was just wondering how much time you had after you landed in lax to go get your baggage then go get checked into you internally flight? how much time should i have for all of that?

Welcome to LAX, dirty, poor service and have I mentioned dirty?! Sitting in the Presidents Lounge for Continental Airlines I am amazed at how dirty, backward and such poor customer service this airport displays. Prague airport and the terminal 1 in Budapest are better!
