Traveling from Austin, TX to Beijing with a connection in LAX. Both legs book at the same time through AA official website. The first flight arrives at Terminal 4 and the second leg leaves from Tom Bradly International Terminal in 1 hr and 30 minutes.
There are varied opinions about whether this transfer is doable or not all over the internet. Doing some research did not help solve all my concerns:
- can checked baggage go from Austin to Beijing without being rechecked in LAX? Do I have to go through security again in LAX?
- on the official website of LAX, the map shows me a tunnel that connects T4 to Tom Bradley, which would be super convenient. How long would it take for me to get through?
