    I have been in the Tom Bradley int terminal and I don't get why all the complains, after you go through the security check the airport is really great, full of amenities clean and modern. I loved it.

    One of the biggest and busiest airports in US. Have couple of terminals along with Tom Bradley International Terminal. A lot of facilities inside it like couple of duty free areas and many restaurants

    Folks, listen. A pair of jeans, clean shoes and a shower *at least* a week before your flight are minor things to ask if you're going to travel. Comfort & class are not mutually exclusive.

    Being able to sit outside (in the animal exercise space) is about the only thing Terminal 3 has that’s better than #MSP. I continue to be amazed at the little thoughtful things in Minneapolis.

    Invest in TSA Pre ✅ for $85. You'll speed through the security line in 5 minutes, get to leave your shoes on and your laptop in your bag.

    This airport is currently undergoing renovation. So depending on which terminal you land in/take off from, you will have a different experience. One experience that is always the same is the traffic!

    Uber/Lyft will no longer do curbside pickup starting October 29, 2019. You’ll be shuttled (or can walk) to a ride share pickup location. Ride share can still drop off at curb tho, for departures.

    If you've got time during connections, go to the international terminal for meals. It's better than what you'd get in the domestic terminals, and you'll get a bit of a walk in the meantime.

    The fly away bus will get you to Union Station in downtown LA in about 40 minutes. Way cheaper than a cab/uber/Lyft and often faster. Public transit here is way better than ppl say.

    Flying American? Get a dropped off at the premium doors. You can check your bags with the 1st & Biz class folks, avoiding the herd at the main check. Can't go in premium security though! :D

    Order a car from Alto and they can still pick you up and drop you off at the terminals. Lyft and Uber now have a lot you have to take a shuttle to/from.

    Uber/Lyft/Taxi pickup: Take the free LAX-it shuttle on the arrivals level. The shuttle will take you to an outside lot where you can get in your ride-share. UberBlack can pick up at the terminal.

    Transferring from an international to domestic flight is really confusing - you will need to go through customs, then go outside, and either walk or talk a bus to your domestic terminal.

    Of the domestic terminals United stands out as peaceful, cleaner and with nicer food options. The United Club is one of the nicer airport lounges with a great outdoor area.

    The Southwest Airlines wing is under construction, so the Mexican stand where the bartender tells jokes & serves margaritas is closed. :( Now Idk what to do with my life before my plane takes off. Lol

    Probably the best international terminal in the states, you can have enough juice to charge your phones. You don't have to hunt for power supply and the provision for USB is a cherry on the top. LA 👍

    The restrooms near baggage carousel 4 by the Air Canada office never has a line. You'll see a fooseball game in the cages for unclaimed items. It's been there almost 2 years now (from my knowledge).

    Tom Broadly international terminal is the best terminal at this airport. I wish if they had metro stations between terminals like other airports instead of buses.

    If you arrive at night get your bags, take the escalator upstairs and have your driver pick you up at departures. It's always gridlock at arrivals at night. I promise!

    Just learned about the vegan eatery "Real Food Daily". It's hidden at the end of Terminal 4 near the multi-gates cul de sac, behind the French bakery, next to the big yellow food truck.

    If you are "stuck" at LAX in Delta terminal 5 I suggest grabbing a Lemonade from Lemonade, sitting by gate 53B to charge your devices and listen to a good variety of 70's and 80's from Rock & Brews.

    If you have a couple of extra hours between flights -- the LAX Observation Deck is open Sat/Sun from 9a to 5pm. You can see all the way to Downtown LA while taking in the airport hustle n bustle.

    Be patient, LA prefers chaos and congestion over organization. There is method to the madness here.. just by the time you find it, you’re boarding. :)

    Avoid the $17 croissant sandwiches at the "farmers' market." If you're hungry near the Delta terminal, the white truffle mac n cheese at Lemonade is the best deal you're going to find - $4.75!

    When in terminal 4, eat at Homeboy Cafe! Best food in the terminal, great artwork, and buy food knowing it helps Homeboy Industries, a favorite LA nonprofit doing great work in our community!

    Got a long layover? Take the Lot C shuttle to the bus depot. The R3 will get you to Venice in 15 minutes, where there's great food, coffee, and a beach to walk around.

    Uber/Lyft pick-up is at LAX-it on the east side of T1. If flying into T1, just walk, as the shuttle often skips pick-ups. Use toilets beforehand, and expect a 15+min wait before your ride is scheduled

    This airport is pretty nice! It’s clean with good places to eat like CHICK-FIL-A! There’s also a candy shop and MAC makeup store. I don’t wear MAC but informing you in case you do 😉 Prices good!

    Book a SuperShuttle online or call to make reservation... It's less money than taking a taxi, & also much cleaner. Plus you may get discount codes through Travelocity. P.S - they take credit cards!!

    Yes, the traffic is pretty awful here, but it is still better than JFK. 😂 In all seriousness though, the shuttle buses are not bad and the renovation is going well. TSA precheck is fast and a must!

    Try the security line up the stairs to the left when entering. Very often the line is smaller than the more used one on the right!
