American Airline does not forward baggage to next airline in time, I have experience twice. If any one planning to use American airline for domestic and than catch international flight from LAX, Please pick your luggage from American yourself and deliver to next airlines other wise you will get your stuff.

I am flying from Toronto to lax by American airlines then onto Melbourne by American airlines operated by qantas. Will I have to change terminals?

Jeremy (not verified)

Shouldn't have to. I believe all Qantas flights depart from this terminal. I've flown 3x from Toronto - LAX - Brisbane and also met other passengers who have gone on to Sydney and Melbourne and they've departed from Terminal 4. It's a relatively short terminal too so not much of a hike from the AA gate to the Qantas one.

I will fly from PVG(shanghai) to LAS(Las Vegas) via AA182, and it stops at LAX. The flight status shows it arrives at LAX terminal 4 gate 43X, and will depart from terminal 4 gate 40. I think I need to report custom and pass border inspection before catching the next flight. Is there ant custom claim/border inspection service available at terminal 4? Or should I go to Tom Bradly to pass border inspection first and then go back to terminal 4 for my next flight?

We will be arriving LAX from Jamaica via Miami with AA at terminal 4. We will proceed to China Southern Airlines. I have lay over time approximately 3hours [arrive LAX 6:45pm and leave LAX 10:00pm]. Is this enough time? I understand we need to go to Tom Bradley from terminal 4. How long does it take from terminal 4 to Tom Bradley?

I lost a blackberry and an ipad last night in Terminal 4, I must have put it down somewhere (bathroom?). Is there a Terminal 4 lost and found, or just one for LAX in general? How can I go about finding my items?

All international flights must arrive at that terminal only they have custom office and imigration office.

I was from Narita, Tokyo by AA in Dec. 2010.
According to my ticket and AA website, AA's arrival Terminal is LAX Terminal 4.
But AA arrived at Tom Bladley, LAX.
Therefore I should quickly move to transit other AA for SF.
Why AA from japan arrive at Tom Bladley?
I wonder if AA to Japan depart at Tom Bladley, not T4.

Thats because you are traveling international. All international go through Bradley. Local American airline flights are in terminal 4, regardless.

I lost my LG Chocolate Touch cellphone at terminal 4, in the bathroom near gate 30 on Sunday, April 19 around 5:30pm. The phone is a touch screen; the backing is silver with purple accents and has a white, silicon case on it. I did not have time to check the lost and found but when I called it last, someone said it was in the lost and found! If found, please give me a call at 8086518782. Thank you.

We are travelling from Miami to LAX to connect on a flight to Vancouver. From what I can tell we will land in Terminal 4 and leave from Terminal 3. Any idea on how long that will take to change terminals?

About a 15 minute walk.

My friend has a layover from Austria to JFK at LAX. I am meeting him at LAX for his 90minute layover. Any suggestions on where to meet? Will i have to go thru airport security?

Katherine (not verified)

My friend and I are both travelling from Sydney to JFK via LAX on the same day and almost at the same time but on different airlines (don't ask!). He's flying Delta and I'm with Qantas - can anyone suggest a good place to meet up in LAX for the 90 mins we'll be there at the same time? I'm assuming we won't need to clear immigration etc as we'll be in transit. And if anyone can suggest where we should meet up in JFK when we get there, that would be great.

hi Katherine
I would not suggest you to meet your friend in LAX as it's a busy airport. As you are trying to get to JFK via LAX, you will be entering the US which you will have to clear immigration and custom then connect to a domestic flight. 90 minutes layover is very tight for this kind of schedule.


I'm due to arrive at L A airport in December from New Zealand and i'm going to Cleveland..what terminal to i need to go to and do i have to collect my luggage and go through customs.

Anonymous (not verified)

you don't have to pick up your luggage if it's an international fly - be sure to let them know your destination is Cleveland.

Anonymous (not verified)

Actually, you MUST pick up your luggage at LAX to go through customs. You go through customs and immigrations at your first point in the United States, Los Angeles, in this case.

Anonymous (not verified)

absolutely true! i found out the hard way. always pick up bags at your first point of entry into country of destination

I am coming from Sydney AUS and transitting through LA to Vancouver. A friend is meeting me in LA to fly the last leg with me and my children. Can you tell me at what point in the disimbark, go through customs, get bags, go through security, exit terminal 4 process; will he be able to meet up with me?

Last time I was in LAX (12 months ago) it went something like this.

Upon arriving you will be processed (photo and fingerprint), collect your bags, and possibly bag checked before leaving the arrivals area.
You may be able to check your bags immediately outside the doors for your onward flight or may need to take them with you to the next check in, they will let you know.
Once you pass this bag check area you are in the terminal proper and your friend can meet you there. This area is on the land side of terminal security so no need for them to pass security checkpoint to get there.

Although you are only in-transit at LAX you may still need to complete the Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA) prior to travel. Beware web sites that charge for filling in the form. The US Government offer it as a free service. Go to and look for a link called 'Travel without a visa'

Good Luck and Bon Voyage....

We are taking a flight from Las Vegas with American Airlines to connect with a Qantas flight to Melbourne. The Qantas flight leaves from Terminal B?
Can someone tell me if we can check our baggage right through to Melbourne from Las Vegas or will we have to pick it up at LAX. Also, is Terminal B the International Terminal. I notice on this site Qantas is also listed under Terminal 4. If it is the international terminal, what would be the best way to get between terminals with four large cases.
Thanks alot

We have a small group of people arriving ex various flights from 12.30pm onwards, but are all departing American Airlines Terminal 4 at either 9.30pm and 10.30pm same evening.

Have you a room that we can rent, with seating and with toilets/showers nearby.

If so, can you provide an estimated cost and to whom I apply to reserve this room.

These people would have all come from 12/13 hour flights, and then travel onto Nassau to a conference that evening, and a shower would be most welcoming. There would be about 15 people.

I am arriving in Terminal 4 (gate unknown at this time) and will be flying out of Terminal 4 after a one hour layover.

Does anyone know how I can meet up with my daughter, who lives in LA, and hand her a present without having to go through security again?


Anonymous (not verified)

Either you will have to go out of the secured area and re-enter it, or she would have to enter the secured area. The latter will not be possible unless she is an airline employee and/or has a ticket for traveling that day also.
In a nutshell, most likely you'd have to exit the secured area to give her the gift. Sorry.

Hi, i am arriving in LA from Melbourne Australia at 7.30am on Nov 10th 2008 and i have a connecting flight until 11.20pm. Are there any lounges like in Singapore where you pay for a shower, bed and food?
Can someone help me pleaseeeee... i can't see myself waiting for 10-12 hrs without any rest.

I read there are some hotels inside the airport (?) but the link didnt work.

Someone told me that if i try to get out from the airport for some hrs its not worth it as the security will take hours to clear and i might end up paying more money for my baggage.

Any advice, suggestions?

Help me!

you don't have to take out your luggages. The airline will tranfer for you unless your destination is LAX. Terminal 4 is left side of international terminal.
