Changing planes in LAX - very confused!!

Jump to last reply

I'm travelling from Sydney - JFK via LAX (QF 107) next month and I'm not sure of the process once we land in LAX. I think (but could be wrong) that as LAX is our first stop in the US we will go through customs and body scanning, finger printing etc. Or do we transit through to our LA-JFK flight and go through the body scanning etc when we land at JFK?

Does our flight from LAX - JFK leave from the same terminal or do we need to change terminals. Also, do we collect our luggage at this point or do we collect luggage at JFK?

Apologies in advance if these are really dumb questions, but I've not flown to the US before.
