We're flying United from SLC to LAX on 1/29 arriving at 7:05 am @ Terminal 8. Our Hawaiian Airlines flight is at 8:40 am from Terminal 2. I know we'll have to exit the airport and go back through security — and they won't transfer our bags, so we'll have to do that ourselves.
Originally we had almost 2.5 hours between flights, but both airlines have changed their times. I'm a little stressed and United won't let us switch our flight to the day before.
Someone had suggested exiting baggage claim at Terminal 7/8, getting a cab to Terminal 2. Then using the Skycap services — or Hawaiian Airlines web check-in bag drop — to expedite that process.
Does anyone have a sense of whether this is possible?
It's a close family members birthday coming up. I want to pay for their trip on a cruise to mexico from LA. How can I book their trip and pay for it without myself being on the trip?
Michigan State just clinched a spot in the Rose Bowl last night! So I'm looking into how to get to Pasadena for the game. The thing is, we are driving back from Michigan to Maine the weekend of the 28th-29th, so it's entirely feasible that I could get dropped off to fly out of any airport along the way. Any of these airports would be possible to fly from: Toledo, Cleveland, Erie, Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse, Albany, Worcester, Boston, Portsmouth, or Portland.
I've also heard there are a lot of other airports besides LAX to fly into (ONT, SNA, LGB, BUR, etc.)
So, trying to look into all possible combinations to find the cheapest flight seems pretty daunting. Anyone have some advice on which two airports might have the cheapest fare between them? Boston to LAX seems a likely candidate, but how about any others?
Three mates and I have managed to break free from our wives in July 2014 to do the route 66 tour. At the completion of the tour we have decided to stay in Los Angeles for 4 days before flying home to Australia. Can anyone help with best location for accommodation (not too expensive) and places we should priorities to visit, regards Lance (By the way our age group is an active 65 to 70)
How can I find a guide who knows Turkish in between 14 March - 22 March 2014 in Los Angeles?
Is it a good idea to explore the city on bicycle?
Hello. .I will be in transit in LAX for 9 hours. I do need to pick up my luggage before checking in onto my next flight. I was wondering if I can leave the airport for a few hours. I was thinking of catching a cab, round trip, and going to Santa Monica and back again. Any one know if this would be possible?
Hello all! I've seen so many great comments. Thanks! I'll be in LA in late March/early April 2014, I won't have a car. Is it safe to use public transportation such as the metro?
I'm kinda lost, I've seen so many reviews! I understand that Skid Row and Compton are pretty unsafe to go but given that I'm a tourist I don't think I'll be going there. Thank you everyone.
I am planning to visit Ross on 1DEC2013 -Sunday (Weekend) around 4.00pm. Which of the following would be best option in terms of designer clothes and accessories (Men+Women) availability as well as waiting in queue:
1. 1360 Westwood Blvd
2. Beverly connection mall in 8489 W 3rd St. Where Ross, Macy's and Marshalls located. But been told that there is no designer clothes and accessories here.
3. 719 S Broadway. This store recently opened and looks good. But bit concerned to move in downtown after 9.00 pm.
Many thanks for your help and response.
My family and I will be travelling to LA this Dec. Due to the tight schedule, I would like to speed up the rental car pickup process as much as possible. May I know if by joining the free Hertz Gold Membership, I will be able to just pickup the rental car and go or do I have to wait in the line? I heard that the line at LAX can go beyond 1 hour. This is a huge problem as we are joining some local tours in about 4 hours from landing.
May I know if the exit from LAX immigrations usually takes long since it is a popular destination for tourists.
We will be flying quite a lot over in the US so may I know if a 2 hours arrival at the airport before the flight is sufficient?
Over here in Singapore, we usually just have to arrive 2 hours before the flight with some free time left still.
Also, may I know if domestic flights by Delta or American Airline is more recommended?
Thank you so much for all your kind help.
I'll be staying at a hotel in Beverly Hills for a week and my check-out time is at 12 pm. But my plane home departs at 9 pm and my shuttle van is picking me up at about 5.30 pm. Does that mean that I don't have anywhere to stay between 12 and 5.30? Do I have to walk around town with all my luggage for 5 hours?
I have a 6-hour layover coming up this Thursday (November 7) from 5 pm to 11 pm at LAX. There are a couple sports events I'd like to follow but I'd also like to leave the airport for a couple hours or so. (The Oregon Ducks play Stanford at 6 pm, and the Timbers play Seattle in an MLS playoff game starting at 8 pm).
Is there a good sports bar somewhere not too far from the airport, such as in Venice Beach? I will be with my wife who doesn't watch sports, so it would be nice if there are shops or something to do nearby as well.
Or if there's some not-to-be-missed event happening nearby, I can watch the games later.
Any suggestions and estimated cab time (or an easy public transport link) would be appreciated!
Not a question.
Los Angeles Int'l Airport has been closed for the next 24, to 48 hours due to a shootout at one of the terminal. Airport is closed. No one gets in. No one gets out. At least three victims. No further news as of yet.
Two of us are flying into LAX for 3 days, late Friday and leaving early Monday in May 2014. We already did the Santa Monica and Venice Beach thing last time we were in town. Not sure if we should get a place in Hollywood or head down to Hermosa Beach. We weren't planning on renting a car for that short of time. Looking for some R&R and local night life. Any suggestions?

Five of us will be traveling through Hollywood in January 2014. We would love to be able to stop and visit some of the landmarks there. I have looked all over and can't find any info on where we can park a 32 foot motorhome. I don't mind paying to park. I just need to know if there is somewhere available for large vehicles like this.
