US Airports are not separate like most Australian airports are. International and domestic departures often leave from the same terminals, as the US does not have as strict physical controls as Australia does. Airline departures are done as you have surmised by the airlines, via the APIS system. So your conclusions are correct. You will land at LAX Terminal ...

According to a Hudson Booksellers facebook post on April 6, 2018, all Hudson news-stands at LAX sell SIM cards

No airport in the US in their right mind is going to allow un-docked scooters to be left lying around their property. Look at it from the TSA security point of view - dropping a scooter off is tantamount to leaving a suspicious package (full of wires and batteries to boot) lying in the middle of a vulnerable location. And even if you had docked scooters, ...

There's really 3 possibilities here... 1) Both flights were booked on the same ticket. This is plenty of time, presuming your inbound flight is on time. You will NOT need to re-clear security - Alaska airlines uses Terminal 6 at LAX, and Air New Zealand uses Terminal B (AKA the Tom Bradley International Terminal). These two terminals are connected ...

Delta has airside shuttles connecting T2 to T3 and TBIT. (Only since Delta moved from T5/T6 to T2/T3 so some other sources might be outdated and not mention them.) This article however, is from May 31, 2019 and here it describes how to get from T2 to T3 / TBIT: After clearing security take a hard right. You’ll see gate 21 — which is an active gate ...

You can definitely do mobile check in. There is no exit formality for the US. You will not have to do TSA again as T2 and TBT are connected airside via a bus and the ride takes approx 10 minutes depending on traffic. 4h should be MORE than plenty if your flight is somewhat on time. The linked site at the bottom gives a detailed description. At T2 after ...

For most countries you will have no problems at all. as a visitor you can bring in most things if they are for personal use and you intend to take them with you when you leave (obvious exception being anything illegal). Certainly ten or so game CDs will not be a problem.

If it's booked on a single ticket and your inbound flight is on time, you should be ok. Today the MSP flight came into terminal three and the PVR flight left from terminal 2. The terminals are connected airside, but you have to take the Delta shuttle bus. See https://renespoints.boardingarea.com/2019/05/31/delta-lax-shuttle-bus-moves-gates-terminal-2-...

From United's map of LAX there is a secure walkway from terminal 7 to terminal 6 (see the dotted line on the image) Thus you will not have to exit and re-enter security when changing terminals. So a 1 hour connection should be OK. On a personal note, I once landed at Terminal 4, and followed the signs to Tom Bradley (via the dotted lines) and kept ...

No, you will not go through the TSA again at LAX. US airports make no distinction between departing domestic and international flights, since there is no passport control on departure. You will go through TSA security in Montana, board your flight, then arrive on the "airside" (post-security) of LAX and simply walk to your connecting international flight ...

There is no procedural difference between a departing domestic flight and a departing international flight in the US, so your question would be the same as one for a domestic-to-domestic transfer. Generally, checked luggage is checked through from one flight to another when you have booked it on the same ticket with the same airline, so you shouldn't have ...
