Connection Time from Int'l to Delta

We have an 'illegal' connection from a Qantas flight (business class) arriving at 1:30PM to a Delta flight leaving at 3:00PM (to avoid having to take 2 consecutive red-eyes). What's the fastest way to get from the Int'l Terminal to Delta curbside (we have to claim our bags and they won't transfer because of the tight connection).

Thanks.

Take the "A" Bus on the arrivals level (bottom). It's a big bus and can be caught under the black sign on the islands. They come around very frequently. You need to go to Terminal 5.

If you aren't too overburdened with luggage you can also walk to T5 from Tom Bradley Intl...it's only a 3-4 minute walk. After customs take the elevator to departure level and turn right as you exit the terminal.

Thanks! We'll probably walk after that 15 hour flight.

Agree with laxth -- you will get to Terminal 5 much quicker if you walk than if you wait for the bus. I quite frequently walk down to Terminal 7 from Int'l and it takes about 10 minutes or so.
