Switching terminals airside is really easy. I took the shuttle between T-3 to T-4 last January when I connected from a QX
flight to an AA
flight and viceversa. The shuttle bus to the AA
terminal stops at a door near T3's Gate 33A.
This is a two gate area that extends out airside from the the Alaska/Horizon Air half of the T3
uses those gates. There is a roped off seating area and signage where the shuttle door is located saying something like 'American Eagle shuttle'. There are two really cool ladies that will be standing near the door and will let your wife know when the shuttle gets there. I think they were from Jamaica and had me laughing. She will need to show her AA
plane ticket to one of the agents at the door before she gets on the shuttle. After she gets on the bus it will make a stop at Terminal 2 then go around the Tom Bradley International Terminal while on its way to the remote American Eagle terminal. The Eagle terminal is west of TBIT's south wing. When she gets to the Eagle terminal, have her get off and tell the agent greeting the shuttle that she is going to the main AA
Terminal 4. They will let her know what bus to get on. When she gets to T4
, take the escalator up a level and look for a monitor to see what gate she is going out of.
The shuttle is a spotters paradise. It dodges lots of taxiing aircraft and gives a great airside tour of all the international widebodies parked at the TBIT.
