'm flying from SFO on UAL to LA for a connecting UALflight to Tokyo. How much time will I need to connect in LA?
assuming u are on one ticket and all the formalities are done in SFO, u will transfer from one flight to the other in the secure area of UA's terminal in LAX.
one hour is more than enough.
i have done it in far less.Edited: 4:04 pm, January 29, 2013
I agree that the transfer shouldn't take much time as you are just walking from one gate to another gate within the same terminal!
Be aware that international flights often start boarding 1 hr. before take off so I like to be at the gate before that happens.
I would go with a minimum transfer time of 1 hour so you can account for some delays for your inbound flight. You don't need anything like 2 or 3 hours though.
I personally would go for a 2 hour connection, but that's me being conservative and wanting some slack in case of a delay. It's an international connection after all.
