So hopefully someone can reassure me that this will be ok, I thought a 3hr connection would be plenty at LAX, but reading up has me worried and since I don't want to worry the whole trip, thoughts please:
I will be arriving at LAX at 7:30am on a Sunday in April from Auckland. I assume alot of the Asia flight arrive this time?
For that flight, I'll be checking in with JetStar in Wellington, and connecting in Auckland to a Qantas flight on one ticket. I spoke to Qantas, who told me my bag will be checked through to LAX, and I will have to get a boarding pass in Auckland.
I arrive scheduled at 7:30am in LAX and then have a 10:40am Virgin America flight LAX-JFK. So...
1. I assume JetStar will not check my bags through to JFK? It is a separate reservation. If they do, would the bag actually make it?
2. Is that 3 hours enough time to clear customs, immigration, transfer terminals, check-in, clear security, etc?
3. How bad should I expect this to be?
Also, on a side note. Coming in I am flying JFK-LAX-SYD on AA then Qantas. Is the AA terminal connected to TBIT? I also assume AA will issue me boarding passes and tag bag through to SYD?
Thanks in advance for any help, tips.
