hi. We are family of 5 arriving LAX Terminal 5 in Dec at 8 am on Northwest Airlines from Japan and connecting to another NorthWest Airlines flight to Las Vagas departing LAX at terminal 6 at 10.10 am. Would there be sufficient time to do so? We certainly hope to avoid a mad dash not knowing how long Customs clearance (we are holding non-USA passports) will take and whether we have to claim luggage to recheck in again. We appreciate any form of advice as we have not booked the connecting flight yet. Thank you very much.

2hours transit time in lax airport is not enough as customs take long time.


I am on a connecting flight that is stopped in LAX for 13 hours. Can I leave the airport and come back or do I need to pay for a visa? I am an Australian citizen. I am flying to Central America on my next flight.


We are flying in from overseas to Terminal 2 and have to go through Immigration and Customs before rechecking our bags for the next internal flight at terminal 5. Could anyone tell me where the connecting baggage desk is at Terminal 2 and if it is well signed. We had a bad experience at Dulles and I'd feel easier knowing where it is.

Good Evening,

the 3 rd September, I've lost my camera at the terminal 4. I was
departing to London, by the flight nr.AA136. I'm sure that I've lost the
camera at the terminal, because I shot a photo, in a terminal's bar. I've
already call the Bar, and they have suggested me to write to you.

The camera is a digital HP, is grey, the typy should be E317. It's an old
camera, but to me it's very important to get back the camera for the pics,
I shot during my US's holiday.

Please me, give me a feedback,


Stefania Sblendorio


A dark gray laptop bag with a light gray Chinese laptop was left at the load-in area on 8/31. Please, please contact if you have found it.

Hi there, On December 30th 2008 we will be flying with United airlines from Orlando FL to LAX and then on to Sydney Australia (Also with United).

We Arrive at LAX (Terminal 7) at 9:09pm and depart from (Terminal 7) at 10:17pm. Is this cutting it too short?

Will we have to re collect/check in our luggage or would that be done in Orlando and be sent straight through to Sydney?

Any help would be much appreciated..

my mom from other country used your public phones but ended up wasting her money because she did not understand how to use it.

Can you please teach me how to use them ?

Hello, can anyone help me. I am travelling to the USA in August. I am arriving at terminal B at 0700 and leaving on Delta at terminal 5 at 1130....will that be enough time to go through customs and baggage and also does anyone know the quickest way to get to terminal 5....all answers are appreciated....thank you

Dr O

You'll have plenty of time. You can easily walk between the two terminals or take the LAX shuttle bus.

Bob (not verified)

You will have enough time to clear immigrations, customs, and get to your departure gate. Below is a site that shows the layout of the terminals at LAX. There is a baggage recheck station just outside the customs hall, if your baggage is checked to your final destination you can recheck it there. If it is only checked to LAX you will have to take it with you to the Delta Terminal.
If you recheck your bags you can easily walk to terminal 5. I have flown into terminal B, cleared immigrations and customs, and walked to terminal 7 for a United flight, with a two hour window between arrival and departure.
Enjoy your visit.

I was just wondering... What does the 'X' stand for inLAX???

Anonymous (not verified)

It's just a way the international flight authorities found to name the airport. It doesn't make any sense regarding the name of the city. As you know, all the airports in the world have 3 letter in their name. The international airport of Sao Paulo, for example is called GRU. But that's because it is located in a city near SP named Guarulhos.

Hi there,

I'm wondering if anyone knows the procedure for picking up luggage at LAX? I want to prepare my 12 & 13 year old neice & nephew (first time flying and they are alone) on what to expect when they land at LAX. It's an international flight from Toronto Canada (clearing customs in Toronto before they leave). Do they have to pick up their luggage on their own before coming to the arrivals area or is it like San Diego where anyone can come into the baggage area to help pick up luggage?

Thanks in advance for your help!

Hi there, I am travelling to the US in August to see my daughter, and I have an eight hour stop-over at LA on the way to Charlotte, NC. Is that time enough to be able to go and have a quick look at Hollywood Boulevard and Rodeo Drive? If so, what is the best way to do this? Are there buses going to Hollywood from the airport, or should I take a taxi? About how much would it cost in a taxi to get from the airport to Hollywood? I have never been there before and would love to be able to take a walk up Hollywood Boulevard or Rodeo Drive, it would be amazing to be able to see them in person, instead of on Google Earth or TV. My flight from Auckland gets into LA at 2.30 p.m. and the flight to Charlotte leaves LA at 10.40 p.m. Is that enough time????

Dr O

Best to rent a car with GPS system and drive there your self. Planning on 2.5 hours for round trip travel(including car rental& return process). Need to be back to airport at least 1.5 hours prior to flight departure time.

I'll be connecting from Bangkok to Washington Dulles via Los Angeles on United Airlines all the way.

My connection time at LAX is a little over 1:30, arriving at 11:10am, will I be able to make the connection? Do you know what is the minimum legal time for this connection? I understand since it's United it's all going to be in Terminal 7.

My boss did this booking for me, I'd have chosen a broader time myself but well. I'm travelling on a non-US (UK) passport.

Thanks in advance!

United will be responsible for your baggage, just double check with the UNITED Counter agent, to book your bags all the way through to Bangkok, when you get to LAX, and you have time go to the check baggage area that your bag does not come out in lax, past experience, sometimes origin departure agent forget to check your bags all the way through to final destination.

United will connect you with next available flight if you miss the connecting flight.
