I will be traveling on September 26th from Hawaii to Atlanta. I am not a US citizen but I hold a valid ESTA. My travel agency has booked these flights:
HONOLULU, HI (DANIEL K INOUYE INTL), TERMINAL 1 | 25 SEP 22:10 LOS ANGELES, CA (LOS ANGELES INTL), TERMINAL 5 | 26 SEP 06:30 LOS ANGELES, CA (LOS ANGELES INTL), TERMINAL 2 | 26 SEP 09:00 ATLANTA, GA (HARTSFIELD-JACKSON INT), TERMINAL S | 26 SEP 16:28
The problem is that the flight from LAX to ATL has a different ticket number, so I have been told that I will need to get my luggage and check in with Delta.
I think (but am not sure) that, for that reason, I will have to go through security, as if I ended the trip in Los Angeles. I have been informed that, depending on the day, this could take a while.
I will also need to change from one terminal to another terminal (not sure which numbers).
- Do I need to pass security control and customs in LAX?
- Is 2 hours 30 minutes enough time to do it?
Since I'll already be in the USA (Hawaii), is there an easier control for foreigners (I'm European)?
