We're going to be on United. Traveling from Denver to Cabo with a 37 minute layover at LAX. Is this enough time to get off one plane and rush over to the next one? Same airline, but am worried that we will have to travel a bit to get to our correct terminal/gate once we're off the first plane. Anyone know if we'll have to get our bags or if they'll already transfer automatically? We usually go through Houston and it only takes about 30 minutes (if that). There are 6 of us 37 minutes at LAX has me worried. I got it as a package combining the two airfare schedules makes me wonder who puts these things together too??!! Do they not know how busy LAX gets in the summer?!

There is no smoking room after the extraordinary long queue of security check in,for god sake such a grandeour "international" airport and yet they lack the basic "international" facility. Shame on LAX, freedom country?! Such an inconvenience international airport. Even third countries international airport have this facility. Such a shame, on a big city in LA and international airport you guys dare to claim. No wonder this country is falling behind in comparison to asia.

I have an even tighter United connection at LAX coming up between SFO-LAX and LAX-Sydney at Terminal 7. United tells me it is valid, but I am nervous about it.

I haven't done this specifically at LAX, but I have flown from Osaka to Dallas (as my connecting airport) and onto Phoenix, so a similar situation to you. Based on that experience, you will deboard from Sydney, go through Immigration, collect your bags, and go through customs. In Dallas, they had a short line for International passengers to re-check their bags (not the normal check-in counter - all was explained after going through Customs). You won't have to pay any baggage fee as your ticket is an International ticket. Then I went back through security for the domestic travel. Make sure that you have any liquids in a 1-quart size clear bag and you will likely have to remove your shoes.

While not specific to LAX, maybe you'll find this helpful.

me gustaria saber si con 2 horas de diferencia es suficiente para llegar de la terminal 7 (desde las Vegas) y embarcar en la Internacional Tom Bradley hacia Pappete. Son 2 horas y 20 minutos la diferencia, aunque he de embarcar con unss 1,2 horas antes hacia Pappete. ¿cuanto tarda y que tipo de conexiones hay? ¿tengo que salir y volver a entrar para los controles? ¿dispongo de tiempo suficiente? ¿debemos pasar aduana?. Gracias

We will never use your airport to fly again. My daughter flew out of your airport on Sunday night and you lost her luggage. She flew to Oregon and its freezing there and doesn't have any warm clothes. How can you do this to someone who is in a strange town with no warm clothes and you are not doing anything to help her out?

Hi, we're arriving from denver to terminal 7 and need to get to the international terminal in 45 min. What is the best way to get there?

Hi, just want to know that - I am arriving at terminal 7 at 9:53 am from Melbourne and off to Denver at 11:11am from the same terminal (7). Do I need to clear the custom at LA or Denver? If I need to do custom clearance at LA, it is obvious that I don't have enough time.

Same thing on my way back- arrive from Denver to LAX terminal 7 at 20:50 and off to Melbourne at 22:15 from same terminal.

Your help is very much appreciated.

US custom's and immigration must be cleared at "point of entry" into the country (99%) so you will need to clear both prior to proceeding to your next flight. Basically you do NOT have enough time to change and make it I'm afraid (especially with the lovely LAX INS agents ...). Sorry but that is just the case - good luck.

HI...we are arriving UA839 at Terminal 7 and need to meet my husbands parents there. Is there somewhere that stands out that we can a coffeee shop or info desk as we come out of customs?

Dave (not verified)

We are arriving at LAX from an international flight at 10:11am - we have a connecting flight from the same terminal (7) to JFK at 1:45pm - that makes it about 3.5hrs connection time.
As we have to go through Immigration etc. should this be enough time?
Also what is the procedure with immigaration/customs/security when first arriving at LAX is there a dedicated line for same terminal connections to avoid leaving the terminal and having to go through security again?

(Probably too late for this answer to be of any use - but here's hoping!)
All United international flights arrive Terminal 7. United has it's own Immigration/Customs facility that is very fast and a great timesaver for any UA, UAX connections.

The walk from secured gate to Immi is very short - 5 minutes tops. As you will not be competing with other carriers, the wait is also short - probably another 10 or 15. You leave Customs via the Ground Floor and come out at Terminal 6. So, you have to leave a secure zone and re-enter security for any flight, anywhere. If you are lucky, you have United Premiere class or above and can use the much shorter lines also in terminal 6 -go upstairs and enter through Door "C"

With 3.5 hours layover, you'll have more than enough. UA Term 7 has a McDonalds, a Karl Strauss Brewery, and a Wolfgang Puck Pizza joint as the only real sit down eateries. If you don't mind walking over to Term 8 (on the same secure side as UA Term 7) there is a Jodi Maroni sausge joint. All in all UA terminals 7 & 8 really need some upgrading.

I am planning on booking a flight, is an hour connection time between 1 and 7 terminals enough? Is there a way to walk through the parking lot walkways to get to the other side? Or is the shuttle faster?

Is there a way to get from Terminal 7 to Terminal 3 without exiting the secure area? Or is there a way to get from Terminal 7 to Tom Bradley Terminal, again with leaving the secure area.

I am arriving from Zurich at 16.40pm on June 2nd and have a connecting flight to Vancouver on United 6428 at 20.35pm. I am an Australian citizen. Will I have to log into the Electronic system for Travel Authorisation 72hrs before arrival, even though I will not be leaving the airport?

All Australians need an Esta Form to enter the US even if you don't leave the Airport,also beware of fraudulent US Consulate site,Proper ESTA Form costs US$14,and to anyone who wants to know about connection times at LAX if you are flying in from overseas allow a minimum of 2 Hrs more if possible.

I will be arriving from Cario on British Airways @700 p.m. and need to catch a United flight to Las Vegas @ 10:25 p.m. Will I have enough time to pick up my luggage, go thru customs, and then walk over to United and check in my luggage and make my flight to Las Vegas?

Olga (not verified)

You should have no problem. If you are arriving at the Tom Bradley international terminal It won't take you 15 minutes to walk to the United terminal. Once you exit the International terminal, make a right to terminal 7. You could also take the shuttle right outside each terminal to transfer you. Good luck and hope this doesn't come to you too late.

My friend is travelling all day on her birthday and will be sitting though a 2 hour (or more) layover in Terminal 7. I am a resident of Los Angeles and thought I could meet her there and hang out and maybe give her a birthday card. Just because an airport is a heck of a depressing place to spend ones birthday. My question is, may a person not flying enter this Terminal? Of course I understand I'd have to pass through security, but I wonder if only persons with boarding passes are allowed beyond a certain point?

Thanks for your help.

Dr O

You can keep her company until she goes through the TSA Security check point(only passangers with boarding pass).

I am planning on purchasing at ticket that lands at Terminal 8 and my connecting international flight is at terminal 7. I have approx 45 min to transit if all works. Is this possible and will I have to go through security or any type of customs? Help Please.

Bigmike (not verified)

United Terminal 8 and United Terminal 7 are connected. You will NOT have to leave security to go from 8 to 7. Take the moving walkway to 7 and walk to your gate.

Terminals 8 and 7 are also connected within security to terminal 6, where some UAL wide body flights depart.

Dr O

You need about 3 hours for connecting time for International Flight to be on the safe side. I have almost missed my flight one time with more than 2 hours in connecting time!

See my other posting on Transit time.

I am flying into Terminal 8 tomorrow and have 1/2 to get to terminal 7 to catch my flight. Do I have to go through security again which will cause quite a delay and I may miss my flight.

We are arriving from Las Vegas into LAX with UA at T7 then we are leaving with Air New Zealand in's a connecting flight to Melbourne. We only have 2.5 hours in LAX between landing and departure. Will we have to collect our luggage at LAX or can we check them right through to our connecting flight. Also is 2.5 hours enough at LAX ?
