Is a 36 minute layover enough time at LAX? Not familiar with the layout of the airport. Think worst case scenario in terms of distance between gates.

Possible if you have priority seating and are one of the first to exit the plane.

No, I wouldn't try that in any airport honestly. There's always something that could go wrong. But that's just me.

Only if you luck out and are at adjacent gates and do not have to retrieve plane-checked luggage.

A bit better in your favor if the flights are on a single itinerary with a single airline

You can run into issues with American if either of your flights comes/leaves from the satellite terminal (requires a separate bus to get to). Southwest is self contained in one, relatively small terminal.

I would do it unless it’s the last flight of the day. Live dangerously. Assuming you don’t check bags.

Just remember they close doors 10 mins early too.

Correct on the hotels part - I should’ve been clearer on that. Hotels are generally not covered unless the issue was in the airline’s control, like maintenance. Occasionally they might do it for their highest tier frequent fliers (your 100K miles per year won’t alone be enough).

Thanks for all the advice! It’s looking like the 2 hour layover option might be preferable despite the slight price increase

like

If it’s one ticket booked on the same PNR you will be protected by the airline. Meaning if you come in late or any slight disruption they are obliged to get you to your destination, if there is a flight later there’s a good possibility they’ll just put you on that. Since it’s not last flight and it’s cheaper, I’d book that one with the knowledge that i can get the later flight. Unless you have status and can stand by for free if you arrive early. But all up to you

Anything less than an hour stresses me out, at any airport

No idea on the terminal - Just pre planning right now. Haven’t booked any flights yet

Same airline?

What airline? If you’re flying AA using the eagles nest from a RJ-RJ connection it’s not impossible, but if I remember correctly MCT at LAX is minimum 60 minutes i believe so this connection is illegal and the airline won’t sell you the ticket as one. Which puts you on the hook for a missed connection.

Quite simple, other than the horrible layout. Standard MCT D/D domestic to domestic 1hr10min, D/I domestic to international 1hr30min. Unless AA-AA D/D And then each line is a specific condition, either widebody(W), flight number ranges (6xxxx are regionals if I remember), CDS AS being codeshare on Alaska Air. Etc etc

get a longer connection and then if you make it on time see if they could get you on an earlier flight at the gate

No. Why put yourself through anxiety to make your connecting?

The answer also varies by what airline you’re flying, which determines which terminals could be involved. Personally I would never book a 36 minute connection at LAX though.

I would do it as long as both flights are on the same itinerary and through the same airline. And if I didn’t check bags

This is the consulting bowl, we don’t check bags here!

Yes let us know how it goes 🤣

Every flight is full right now. Don’t risk it

Are you for real? Unless you're a VVIP being ferried in a Mayback across the tarmac?

My son is entering Kindergarten and his (great but hamstrung) public school can only offer 60-85 minutes per day for remote learning, 3 days per MONTH in-school. Just not feasible for a working mom in this industry. So I met some parents, we hired a private teacher, and I’m rolling with a 4-family homeschool pod. I’m keeping my kid in public school, hoping the curriculums can align and not go crazy. Love and strength to all moms and dads and partners out there. It’s tough - but so are we!
