Lax domestic check in


We fly in from Australia on a Saturday at 11.30am. We are hoping to taxi to Venice Beach for the afternoon for a look around, then fly to Las Vegas that night. Can you check in luggage hours earlier for the flight, or is there somewhere you can store luggage so we don't have to cart it to the beach with us..

In my experience you can check in luggage around 3 hrs before departure but this can vary - depending on your flight departure time the following might meet your needs.

What airline are you flying to Las Vegas? One of the big ones like United or American that have check in desks open all day will probably take it whenever you arrive.

assume u r flying on 2 tickets and that bags will not be checked thru from aus to LAS.

if so then there is no baggage storage at LAX (due to security) and depending on the airline normal check in time is 3-4 hours.

if u r travelling on the one ticket and your bags are checked thru to LAS u can drop your bags off after customs.

the only off airport storage I know is mentioned in post #1.

What airlines are involved, and are they indeed two tickets, or just two flights on the same reservation? It makes a significant difference in terms of your transit through LAX and disposition of your luggage.

You might also think about taking a taxi to Manhattan Beach instead of Venice - closer, cuter. Walk out the pier or walk along the Strand (beachfront pedestrian street) and decide which bank you'll rob so you can move here.

Why not rent a car rather than taking a taxi, so you can leave your luggage in the truck? It might even be cheaper than taking a taxi.
