Baggage for connecting flight

New Arrival

Hi,

I will be flying from HOU to LAX with my carry-on as checked in luggage because it does not meet size requirements, but I will be taking another flight in LAX to HNL on Hawaiian airlines and I want to actually carry my luggage on that flight to avoid paying fees. How can I obtain my luggage once I am in LAX and avoid missing my next flight?

 

Thanks,

Shay

Hi @Shay1977,

 

That's a tricky one. You'll have to go to baggage claim to retrieve your luggage and then go back through security to catch your Hawaiin Flight. Hopefully,  you have a significant amount of time between the two flights. You could also look at changing your Southwest flight to an earlier depature, or changing your Hawaiin flight to a later departure. 

 

Last but not least, you could repack in a smaller bag, or consider shipping your luggage to Hawaii.

@Shay1977,

 

Since the reservations were booked as individual reservations on two separate airlines, we will not be able to transfer your bag to Hawaiian. You'll need to check the bag with Hawaiian after you've completed your travel segment with us.
