Travellimg from Portland to Brisbane via LAX

Hello everyone,

I am transiting through LAX from Portland on Alaska Airlines then I travel to Brisbane on Qantas. I will have a 2 hrs layover at LAX.

Can anyone offer advice on the process for customs/immigration clearance, baggage (reclaim/check in), and how to move from terminal to terminal conveniently?

Appreciate your responses.

There are no Immigration or Customs checks when leaving the USA. If the travel is on one ticket, your luggage will be checked through to Brisbane and you will not see it in LAX.

How to transfer between terminals depends on which terminal you arrive at. There is full information on the airport's web site.
