    We are flying UA527 from SFO into LAX after an international flight. Which terminal at LAX will we be landing at? Do we clear customs & immigration at LAX or SFO?

    Thank you.

    You will almost certainly clear customs at SFO, assuming that (1) that's your first point of entry into the U.S. and (2) you don't come from an airport that offers customs preclearance, e.g. Toronto or Vancouver or a small handful of others (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_border_preclearance).

    Your SFO-LAX flight will probably arrive in United's LAX terminal 7 or 8; it might instead land at terminal 6. Terminals 6, 7, and 8 are all connected airside and are all about a 5 minute walk apart from each other. Your SFO-LAX flight will not land at the LAX international terminal ("TBIT").

    This flight was delayed several times at SFO and we arrived around 7:30 PM instead of 6:00 PM!!! It all ended here! :)
