Please keep this updated it should not be dificult.
Thank you

My 14-yr son is arriving from Cancun on Friday on Alaska Air. Do we pick him up in the Tom Bradley Int'l terminal? Does he go through customs and get funneled out to a common exit/baggage claim area? Is that where we would greet him? Thank you.

If your son is 14 years old, usually Alaska Airlines will send one of their reps to escort the passenger out to the arrival lobby. In airlines, this term is also known as UMR or Unaccompanied Minor. Baggage claim is located right after he clears customs at the customs booth in the arrivals area. Once he clears customs, he needs to claim his bags in arrivals and proceed to the upper arrival area.

I am worried about my connection flight.

I am arriving in LA from Australia at 4:30 with Vaustralia. Then, I have a connection to Vegas with United at 6:18. I was wondering if someone can explain me hot to get to the domestic airport? would it be enough time for me to get my flight.

thanks in advance for any assistance.

When you leave the international airport, you can two things, you can either catch one of the free shuttles which can take you to the domestic terminal or you can walk to the terminal. If you hurry and don't dawdle when you arrive at LAX airport then you should make the connecting flight on time :)


Hi I'm arriving from Australia at 4:30PM but need to board another flight from Terminal 6 which takes off at 7PM can anyone please tell me how long it will take for us to get to terminal 6 I guess pending on the time it takes to get through immigration etc haven't been through LAX in a long while can anyone help please.

It doesn't take too long at all. If you're arriving at Bradley terminal, then get past immigration and customs. As you walk up the exit ramp, there should be two lanes, one for connecting passengers. See if you can check your bags in for the connecting flight there. If you can't, just exit the terminal and look for the LAX Terminal shuttle (I think it's the Blue sign). Get on that bus and it's the third terminal (Bradley, 4, 5 then 6). Get off there and take either the escalator or elevator up to the departure level to check-in/ticketing/security/etc.

If you're flying Qantas, they're usually good on time so as long as your immigration goes smoothly and doesn't take much time, you should be OK. But I would definitely check that "Connecting Passengers" lane by all means. That might save you the headache of having to wait in line at T6.

Hope you have a nice trip!

My son has to meet a group of people at Tom Bradley International Terminal at LAX. He has to meet in the Arrival Area B near the currency exchange counter. He has flown in to terminal 2 by virgin atlantic, the question is, is the tom bradley terminal a separate building to terminal 2 in which he arrived? and is the Arrival Area B in the tom bradley and has nothing to do with terminal 2?

Anonymous (not verified)

Since I bought separate tickets. The first one in Thai Airways leaving BKK and arriving at LAX. And then, 3 hours later, I leave from LAX to PTY on Copa Airlines, are my bags going to be checked all the way? If not, do I have to pick them up after passing through emmigrations and customs? Where would the Copa Airlines Counter be located so I can check my bags to PTY and get my boarding pass since I only have an e-ticket? Does COPA has a counter inside the terminal? or would I have to go out in order to check in my bags again?
Please, let me know if both airlines arrive at the same Terminal since they are both International Flights?
Thanks for your prompt response.

I m flying on May7 from Philadelphia to LAX on United Airlines (arriving 12PM).
My parents are flying from Beijing international Airport to LAX(arriving 6PM).
My parents don't speak English. I wonder if I could go from the United Airline terminal to pick them up at their gate at Terminal 2, the international arriving terminal.
Thanks a lot

I am picking someone up from a flight on Asiana Airlines, and it says "Terminal B". I assume that means Bradley International, right?

My parents are traveling from Sydney to LA and then flying to Dallas, the DON'T speak english, and we haven't been ever in that airport. I will need a brief description of the route they should take from the TBIT to terminal 4 (from the international to domestic terminal).

is it a code share flight? if so you shouldnt have to worry about your baggage after you check in the first time.

I'll be travelling on April 1,2009 to Toronto, Canada.
My question is, from Philippines-Lax-Toronto, can LAX be my stopover without having a US visa?

Please help


Dr O

You will need to apply for C1-Transit Visa.

Transit Visas
Transit visa applicants must establish to the satisfaction of the Consular Officer that they intend to pass in continuous transit through the United States and that they have a residence abroad that they do not intend to abandon. Transit aliens must have onward transportation arrangements to their final destination and permission to enter some country other than the United States following the transit through the United States, unless the alien submits satisfactory evidence that such advance permission is not required

My kids are traveling alone from Manila to Toronto with a stop over in LAX.
They will arrive in Tom Bradley Terminal, and will depart using Air Canada in Terminal 2.
I know that they need to pass through customs.
But do they need to pass through immigrations as well... even though they are just in-transit?

I am travelling from Vegas to LAX where I will then fly onto London, UK. Arrival time into LAX from Vegas is 15:12 (United Airlines) and flight to London with BA is 17:35. Will I have enough time to go from Terminal 8 to Tom Bradley International Terminal and how do I go about doing this?

Anonymous (not verified)

Can I get BA boarding pass while check in at Sacramento airport ?? The flight is UA 6491 SMF-LAX 1846-2011 , CONNECTING with BA 268 LAX-LHR 2115-1530. And please advise if the time is enough between Terminal 8 & Tom Bradley terminal. How about the luggage ?

iflytoomuch (not verified)

United operates international flights for terminal 6 not Bradley so you should be ok. Unless you have a broken leg and have to crawl over there :)

Dr. O (not verified)

You are cutting pretty close. Assume flight is on time, and luggage arrives promptly. It take around 10-20 minutes after you have your luggage to walk or shuttle to the next terminal.


Can you tell me which terminal at LAX do I leave from to fly Virgin Australia to Sydney on Monday 9th March VA 2

Taylor (not verified)

I am getting into LAX at 10:27am @ Terminal 2 and then my next flight is at 12 noon from Tom Bradley on Korean Air. I am very concerned and wonder if someone could answer me this. Do I have to go through US customs to get to TB Terminal (from Terminal 2)? And secondly is an hour and a half enough time to get between the two flights? Your help is appreciated.

Operations (not verified)

You will clear Customs when leaving Terminal 2. It's a 5 min stroll to the International Terminal from Terminal 2. You will check in with KE, take your luggage to X-ray (If not interlined at Terminal 2)and then proceed through security to your flight.

We have a long layover at LAX on Monday Feb 16th. Is it easy to go to Disney? Universal Studios? or what do you suggest?



Anonymous (not verified)

Nothing is easy in LA, i live here. Disneyland is an hour or two (depending on traffic away)plus unless you have a two day layover its just not worth it. universal is closer but is still 30 to 60 minutes away. You need to rent a car which will take you another hour. Sorry, LA is tough.


which car rentals agencies are found at Tom Bradley International terminal?

Anonymous (not verified)

all of the majors.. I suggest that you take a cab to Fox Rent a Car which is about 5 mins outside of the airport and get a car there.. they are the cheapest car rental in the area...

or find out if they have a shuttle

Hi all,

I am making an international transfer in LAX enroute from Melbourne, Australia to Frankfurt, Germany. I am flying United on a codeshare flight from Melbourne to LAX which arrives at Terminal 6 and then have 4 and a bit hours to transfer to the Tom Bradley International Terminal to catch my Lufthansa flight to Frankfurt.

I was wondering if I need to actually clear customs to transfer between terminals or does United provide a gate-to-gate transfer bus?


Joao de Deus (not verified)

Are there any duty free liquor stores available and what are the operating hours? Also if there is a website to check what is available etc. Arriving/departure at/from American Airlines/Qantas terminal.

We had to catch a flight early in the morning from another terminal. We decided to stay overnight at the airport and just sleep on the chairs. All the terminals closed down, and everyone was directed to the Bradly Terminal. It was so horrible. There were no “comfortable chairs”, but only metal benches and iron café chairs. Many people were sleeping there, obviously waiting for flights in the morning. They were sleeping on the hard metal benches or the iron café chairs that they had lined up. We decided to sleep on the carpet, and a janitor lady was nice enough to give us a piece of plastic to lie down on. All of that was pretty bad, but the worst part was that it was SO COLD inside. The AC was on and blowing cold air all night. I was like sleeping out on the porch. You could not sleep, and you could not get warm. Every other terminal I have been in has been kept at a reasonable temperature. My husband and I took turns sleeping and keeping watch, but really, everyone was having the same problems that we were. We would get up and wander around looking for a warmer spot, but people were leaving the other areas also looking for a warm spot. It was like being homeless. We saw a couple of people who were smart and brought their sleeping bags. It was the worst night I ever spent in my life.

I know this post is over a year old, but seriously, I could not refrain from responding.

Lady, what in the hell did you expect?? A five star hotel?? I mean, c'mon. There are plenty of shuttel services that will take you to hotels that are right there at the aport -- and they dont charge you a thing.

You -- and anyone else who is looking to stay at the LAX should keep one thing in mind... YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR.... You wanna go cheap and not pay for a nice comfortable bed, then you may have to sleep on an "iron bench" and you may have to deal with the feeling of "sleeping on your porch." Other than that, DONT COMPLAIN...

God Bless America... :-)

I'll be traveling to Italy from Los Angeles Airport with connecting flight at Washington DC. Do I get dropped off at LAX Tom Bradley International Airport, United Airlines?

iflytoomuch (not verified)

if you are flying with united then you will be dropped off at the united terminal.
United operates international flights from terminal 6 and not 4!

i take 8 international flights a year 4 with united and 4 with Cathay i am almost positive you will not be going to terminal 4 for any reason..

btw terminal 4 is AA


United airlines uses terminal 7 (double check with your airline). If you go to Tom Bradley Int'l terminal 4, you won't find United there.

Hello. I will be arriving in LAX from Australia at 4.30pm and was hoping to catch a domestic flight from terminal 3 with Virgin America at 8.30pm. Will 4 hours be enough time to clear immigration / customs etc and then go through the relevant security checks at terminal 3 to get my connecting flight?
