I am driving from Southwest Colorado (as there are no non stop/direct flights to LAX. To avoid the horrendous traffic situations that occur on a regular basis in the greater LAX area. I am planning on arriving between 1200 - 1500 (3:00 PM) . Counters at Qantas do not open until 1800 (6:00 PM). Travelling in First . Any suggestions and or how to contact Qantas check in counter ? Thanks

Sorry, you’re driving from Colorado to avoid a connection and you’re worried about traffic in LA? Mmmm

I would say your best bet would be to contact reservations. Airport operations generally do not publish contact details for this very reason...
Actually do not mind the drive. Better that than missing a connection or a flight being late. Bottom line is flying in the USA is a joke. Driving I am in control. I know the reason that they do not give out certain telephone numbers. Only reason for putting out a post is that perhaps some smart experienced traveller has a good suggestion. Yes I know about traffic in the LA area.

Having flown out of LAX last month and arriving at the airport in the early afternoon after coming off a cruise, can assure you there is nobody there from Qantas very close to 1800. There will be no way for you to check in early I am afraid.
Thank you GENTLEMAN. That is the kind of feed back I was looking for. I have been in touch with reservations and they told me that they have entered my requests on my reservations but you know how that works. Reason for trying to make contact is to perhaps try and arrange so that someone would be there. If you do not try than you do not know if you can be successful.

I can understand why you are driving. The freeways are gridlocked and getting to LAX mid afternoon is sound idea. Faced this situation at DFW last week when I wrapped up my meetings early. It was a 37c/ 104f day so not much use sightseeing and getting roasted. The QF counters opened at 5.30 pm for a 9.50 pm departure. Just had to catch up on stuff in the cool of the terminal (one coffee shop and not much to do as US airports discourage much hanging around landside). Good flying.
Absolutely. Once was booked on QF12 from LAX to Sydney. This hit problems so a space found on the QF from SFO. Put on a AA flight LAX to SFO which was delayed and then cancelled. Eventually found a place on AA from LAX to SYD. Go with the flow indeed.....
So appreciate all comments and suggestions. Drive uneventful even through LA traffic. Spent couple of hrs at Alamo car rental. Quiet etc. Exactly 1800 counters open . Good shower at First Lounge, calamari, Minute Steak and some down time . Flight OK.Excellent crew and food
