Connecting from Terminal 7 to Tom Bradley International Terminal at LAX

I found an amazing deal from LAX to Tokyo (Narita) for the cherry blossom festival. There was one “problem,” though – I live in San Francisco.

Having traveled to LAX often, I decided I would book a 7am flight (landing shortly after 8am), which would leave me plenty of time to connect to the Tom Bradley International Terminal (TBIT) at LAX. However, due to what the pilot called “a whole in the runway” at LAX, my flight was delayed and we didn’t land until 10:15am.

Having never traversed from Terminal 7 to TBIT before, and reading horror stories online, I was afraid I would miss my flight.

Luckily, it turns out that you can now connect between all terminals at LAX and TBIT without going through security again. If you land in either Terminal 7 or 8 (basically, United), head to gate 71A and you will see signs leading you to all other terminals.

To make sure I would make it on time, I walked as fast as I could and got a mild case of shin splints.

It took me exactly 20 minutes to travel from Terminal 7 to TBIT, including getting slightly lost once, and arriving at the gate sweating. Of course, my boarding ended up being delayed, but I was happy to make it with plenty of time to spare and am currently awaiting boarding to head to Tokyo!

“Cash me ousside” girl punches airline passenger, gets liftime ban from Spirit Airlines

Danielle Bregoli, famous for her appearance on Dr. Phil in which she threatened the audience to “cash me ousside,” was boarding a Spirit Airlines flight out of LAX when chaos ensued.

Danielle was returning from filming a Dr. Phil reunion special when the incident took place. From the videos, it appears the other passengers involved were instigating Danielle upon recognizing her from the famous meme.
