LAX terminals

I am arriving in LAX terminal 6 and need to get my luggage then meet someone who is coming into LAX terminal 2. Are there restaurants, etc. where I will be able to wait for them or will I not be able to get thru security? Thank you

No, unfortunately there are no restaurants in terminal 2 before you go past security, and you cannot get past security in terminal 2 unless you have a ticket on a flight departing from terminal 2. You might want to grab a quick bite to eat in terminal 6 after you deplane from your flight and before you make your way to the baggage claim area.

You cannot get through security in Temrinal 2 unless you have a boarding pass for a flight in that terminal. That is the rule throughout the USA in all airports.Sorry for repeating info.

Stopped to look something up and didn't realize info was already posted.

thanks for the info - will there be a place I can sit inside terminal 2, even if it's on the floor? I have a 4 to 5 hour wait before my friends come in, thank you

There are benches you can sit on, but you should consider the advice in #1. Another option, should you decide to walk from T6 to T2, is to stop at the international terminal TBIT, where there are restaurants outside security. Either one would be preferable to just sit in T2 IMO.
