Thread: How far in advance to arrive at LAX for flight back out Monday?

    Default How far in advance to arrive at LAX for flight back out Monday?

    Hello! First year going to Coachella and have heard that travel back to LAX and the airport in general are pretty hellish on Monday.

    I'll probably buy an LAX shuttle pass on here, but was wondering if anyone's taken it before and how early I should plan to take off from Palm Desert in advance of my flight time.

    Thanks!

    Depends the time of ur flight. Its normally 2 h, u should be at the airport 2 h before u arrive. So that's already 4 h, so make that around 6-8 h.

    I'd say plan to be there early. LA Traffic is a headache and you're probably facing that along with all the other people who went to Coachella.

    If your flight is at 12pm, I'd head out at 7am. Always good to be early than miss your flight.

    I'd leave about 5 hours before your boarding time just to be safe. Traffic depends on time of day but without traffic it'd take about 2ish hours to get to LAX. Throw in possible Coachella traffic and the general SoCal work traffic and that could make it close to 4 hours, worst case scenario. So yeah 5 hours just to be safe

    even 5 hours might be cutting it close if your flight is in the afternoon and you leave too late in the morning. i've had it take me 5 hours just to get back to the OC area when leaving mid-morning monday.
