I am wondering if there is a separate business check in area at Tom Bradley. We will be arriving to Terminal 2 from Vancouver and catching the shuttle to Terminal B. Flying Qantas to Melbourne. Thanks

Yes, there is a clearly marked Business Class check-in counter at the TBIT.

If you arrive from Vancouver you'll have gone through US pre-clearance and won't have to clear immigration/customs when you arrive into Terminal 2. If your bags are checked through you can remain post-security and get the airside shuttle to TBIT.

Yes if you go landslide take the 5 minute walk, enjoyable after a flight.

Affirmative. The buses are all Delta-branded etc but it doesn't matter which airline you're flying with as you don't need to present a boarding pass, only to say which terminal you're heading to.I've done a similar thing at LAX when connecting to Qantas (albeit with only carry-on baggage) - arrived on a Delta domestic flight in T2, took the airside bus over to TBIT (to avoid clearing security again), and completed check-in at the reception desk of the Qantas lounge for a flight to Melbourne with no problems at all. If your bag is tagged through from Vancouver, you'd be able to do the same if you don't have your onward Qantas boarding pass: and if you do, well, that's even easier as you're already set!

Clearing security can be a hassle at TBIT so I’d recommend the airside transfer if you’re all set with luggage/ passes.

To make the advice even more useful e.g. for a round trip, does anyone have helpful suggestions about the other direction, i.e. arriving at TBIT from Australia and transferring to T2 for a flight to Vancouver. Is it possible to stay on the airside?

I know it is a little bit off topic, but I will be transfering through LAX as well, I will be on an Air Canada flight coming in (Terminal 6) and going out on Fiji Airways (TBIT), could I do the land side transfer with just carry on as some of the posters above have suggested? Is an electronic boarding pass (i.e. mobile check-in) sufficient for the FJ flight if anyone knows?
