How many terminals at LAX?
In total, there are nine terminals. The naming system goes in such a way where the first eight terminals are labeled one through eight, with the last one being labeled the international one, or just the B terminal.
And since there are more terminals than what is usually expected, they are arranged in a very organized form that allows them to be connected to one another. Some of the terminals are connected through walking passages, and others solely through the shuttle services that transport people from one location to another within the facility.
The layout that they are in is a U-shaped one, with terminals one, two, and three on one side, four to eight on the other, and the B terminal in the curved segment between terminals three and four.

LAX terminals by airline
For the purposes of organization, the terminals serve certain airlines each.
To further elaborate, the first one operates almost exclusively local flights, while the second one is a little more flexible with the flights it allows as there are some international companies operating there. The third serves as the main facility for Delta’s flights and thus almost only allows the flights of this company to operate there. Similarly, the fourth one serves as the center for American Airlines. The fifth and sixth ones have a healthy mix of some local and international flights. The seventh and eighth are the main terminals through which United operates its flights at. And last but not least, the B Terminal is dubbed as the international one, which is self-explanatory.
