LAX connection.

Hi all,

I will be arriving on a Qantas flight into LAX TBIT at 06:45am.

I then have an Alaska Air flight at 10:20am to Mexico City from (I'm assuming) T6.

I know I will have to collect my bags and then clear immigration and customs. If I have a boarding pass already for my Alaska Air flight, is there a bag drop at TBIT so I dont need to check in again?

I believe the shuttle between terminals goes in the other direction and makes plenty of stops, so is it far to walk if I have my carry on bags only? 15 minutes?

1. Re: LAX connection.

there is a bag dropoff at TBIT if your bags are checked thru to your destination at your point of departure.

the shuttle heads in the direction of T6 from the arrivals level at TBIT but most times it's quicker (and after 14 hours sitting across the pacific) better to walk. 10 mins at the most.

u have plenty of time.

Agree, it's not a long walk. You've got loads of time if your flight is not really late.
