    Long lines in the AM! Prepare for extra time.

    The most convenient terminal to arrive and depart from.

    Never had any problems frying out of Terminal 1. Make sure you allow yourself extra time to get through security. Lines can get long quick.

    For the main security gates at the top of the stairs, if there are only 2 TSA agents checking boarding passes, stay to the left when the line forks!!! Otherwise you compete with disorganized families.

    Yes, we know it's Southwest, AirTran and US Airways.. that doesn't give you a pass to dress and act like you are sitting at home on your couch with your hand down your pants. #theendoftheworld

    If you can get in the pre-check line TSA is a breeze.

    Opt in for TSA Pre Check makes life easy

    Pays to upgrade if you're running close on time. The lines for Southwest, especially in the morning, can be a disaster :(

    Janice McNair · March 26, 2013

    Avoid Terminal 1 for any early morning flights. Security line is longer than The Odyssey.

    Back lot deli has awesome paninis! And a awesome bartender named Meghan. Check it out!

    Southwest always has a long line for check in. Get here early-chill:)

    If you get diverted to the upstairs TSA screen area by Gate 1, this is proof of a vengeful god punishing you. Training ground of swollen egos and undiagnosed ADD.

    Use the 2 hour rule!!! I cannot stress this enough people. Especially if you're renting a car. And use any other security check other than the one directly by terminal 1.

    Allow at least 20 minutes to clear TSA. It seems to take twice as long to clear TSA @SouthwestAir vs. @AmericanAir at Terminal 4 @LAX_Official

    TSA set up needs improvement. Long line reminds me of McCarran in Vegas but they entertain with videos. Southwest, please prove set up

    1st come 1st out. Lax worse airport ever. Make sure to leave time for security gate. Hostage otherwise

  • Amy

    6am flight and no one at the counter to check me in for it 1.5 hrs before it. don't they know I have to drug myself for flying more than BA barukus from the a team? that takes time

    Amy · September 11, 2012

    The mezzanine TSA can be quicker... Especially if you're going to gate 1 or 2

    Gerry A · July 3, 2012
  • Nora N.

    Not bad. Check out near gate 13 back for seats equipped with chargers.:)

    Nora N · June 14, 2012

    The TSA is a joke here. 500 overweight twats who can't figure out a damn thing. When did it become OK to be called 'boss' when walking through? We aren't playing B-BAL at the park, 'BRO'.

    TSA sux if u sux as a passenger!

    The security lines can look long at peak times but they tend to move fast.

    Edward Shelswell-White · April 27, 2012
  • James C.

    Avoid the second TSA lane from the left if you are in a rush today. Easily 2x slower than other lines this morning.

    James Citron · April 3, 2012
  • Scott M.

    Prepare to wait

    Scott Manthey · March 23, 2012

    security line can take five minutes or an hour so plan accordingly

    Heinzel Factora · March 19, 2012
  • Charles P.

    If you have a flight at 6 and you arrive 2 hrs early, hope theres someone at the check in desk

    LAX sucks, all I'm gonna say

    Benji Farrow · March 4, 2012

    Preferred line is always fairly fast. Tack right for security line after ID check as they are shorter although they appear longer.

    curt Witte · February 29, 2012
  • Donna T.

    Love flying. They are consistently organized.

    Burbank airport puts lax to shame

    Bring your food instead of over priced vendors

    Wear sandals when going through security

    Just had the worst cust service ever at the usairways ticket counter. Laura talked to me like she was scolding a puppy for walking up to her.

    TSA sucks.

    William Reardon · March 23, 2011
  • Ed P.

    Don't fly southwest or US Airways so you can avoid the horrible security line in terminal 1.

    Ed P · March 10, 2011

    Gift shop only carries Pepsi products but you can get Coke @ the McDonalds

    Pamela Rouse · November 3, 2010

    It is an easy walk from T1 to the international terminal (T2).

    Jerry Wang · October 19, 2010
  • Kara N.

    Lines vary widely from 1 hour to no wait, nearly impossible to predict. Either spring for bus select or get here early. Even tears and babies don't help speed up the process if the line is endless

    Kara Nortman · July 30, 2010

    Is it really a good idea to make the chairs in the airport more comfortable than the chairs on the planes? Find these chairs around Gate 7.
