    hi
    we're flying 2 separate bookings, one- from Australia to LAX then we have another booking LAX-CUN.

    will 3.5 hours be enough time to get off 1 plane, pick up luggage, do customs then recheck in in another terminal? I realize LAX is big but they have those shuttles...I am worried as we don't want to miss our flights but also want to shield as long in LAX as possible

    Tia!!

    I actually did the same with separate bookings while I lived in Brisbane For two years and would fly home to Colorado. I always gave myself 2 hours and unless it was rush hours of the day I was through in one hour. 3.5 is plenty which you want in case your flight is late arrival.

    Good luck for whenever your going!

    thanks, we decided it was too risky... who wants to be stuck in LAX when we should be at TTR! so we gave ourselves a little more time, bring on August 30!!!
