I'm flying to LAX by Korean airline and from there to Cancun by interjet. But their schedules allow me only 2 hours for transfer. I wonder if I could make it on time? Cheers.

    What citizenship are you? Will you be checking bags? Is the trip on one ticket or two (ie, are you buying the two flights together or separately) – Doc Sep 22 '18 at 16:02

    @Doc I’m Korean and yes there will be bags for check-in and the tickets are separated. (All my answers are making me feel unlucky.) – Jeeyoung Jeon Sep 22 '18 at 16:21

No way.

For international flights, you need to check your luggage two hours before - that's a hard limit.

Even if you'd travel with hand luggage only and in business class, with immigration and customs, you'd have only a small chance to make it.
Note that you lose your second flight, including its return trip, if you miss it - no refunds.

You should also consider potential arrival delays. For separate tickets, book at minimum a six hour difference, better eight hours. Or book it on one ticket, then it is the airlines problem.
