LAX shuttle from TBIT back to T2/T3?

Take the shuttle bus several times from T2/3 inter-terminal.

With an upcoming trip with 4-hour layover at LAX. My plan is arriving in T2/3 on Delta, then take the shuttle bus to TBIT and use priority pass to visit KAL lounge (though nothing excited about...). After that, head back to T2/3 from TBIT. So the question is, will the shuttle pick up people from TBIT?

I don't think the OP wants to have to clear security a second time.
There is no airside walk from 2 or 3 to TBIT.

Yes. Double-check the hours for the KAL lounge for your layover. The other options are the Alaska Lounge (T6) and the Virgin Atlantic Lounge (T2). You can walk airside between TBIT and T6, though it's a bit of a hike. When I went to the Alaska Lounge in T6 and showed them my Delta boarding pass, they looked at me a bit funny, because they didn't realize that you can get from T2/T3 to T6 airside.

Both the Clubhouse and the KE lounge have limited hours for PP access. But they don't overlap -- Clubhouse in the morning, KE in the afternoon. But my limited experience is the Clubhouse in the morning is not worth it. Packaged pastries and coffee - not the real experience.
OP doesn't say the time of day. With 4 hours, might be worth the walk to the Alaska lounge. But not only is it TBIT-T4-T5-T6 but all the way across TBIT.

I did this last Sunday (went plane spotting in tbit)! The kal lounge finally has hot food (chicken wings, fried rice, and pizza). The shuttle stop in tbit was difficult to find and badly marked. When you come down the ramp to the satellite gate area there are two doors straight ahead (next to a large cbp advert on the wall) with an unmarked agent that you have to ask.

thanks! My layover is 12pm - 4pm and then head to Hawaii. So my plan now is to stop at P.F Chang to get some lunch I also have Alaska lounge membership, so then walk from TBIT to T6 to get some pancakes/beer... but thatís quite a hike in LAX

Last week I visited the AS lounge which is undergoing some renovations that have it on par with the (subpar) KAL lounge, might want to check if they're done before you make the hike.

You didnít mention if you are a SkyClub member, I am not and got turned away at the KAL Lounge; AmEx card or First Class does not let you in on a Delta ticket, unless you are flying international.

OP mentioned his method of access, PP.

May I know where exactly is the shuttle pick-up spot at T3? Near which gate at T3?

Flying into LAX, landing at T3 most likely, and need to connect to international flight at TBIT.

This article https://renespoints.boardingarea.com...e-now-find-it/ mentions the Delta shuttle pick-up point is near Gate 21 at T2, but didnt say where it is at T3.

​​​​​​Near gate 35.

The LAX airport map on the Delta site should help:
