Asiana Club - LAX connection - enough time?

I am arriving on OZ flight ICN-LAX around Noon and have a connection on US leaving at 1:30pm. Is it realistic that I will make this connection?

I'd have to say it's doubtful. 10-15 minutes to get off the plane and through immigration, 15 minutes to get your bag, 30 minutes to get through the long customs lines I've seen there lately, then you've got to walk a while or take the bus to another terminal, clear security, etc. It's possible, but I'd say your odds of making it are less than 50%.

I'd have to agree with jphripjah, that's a very tight connection for LAX. I try to give myself around three hours when I have an international connection. Immigration wait times are so unpredictable there.

If you have Global Entry, you can do it. (With GE, I have been out on the street in 15-20 minutes.) Without GE, you probably won't make it.

Thanks for the feedback. I've gone ahead and changed my flight. Now I gotta overnight in LAX but I guess it gives me an excuse to visit some friends and family.

It would have been real doubtful to make that connection from TBIT to terminal one. Have fun!
