VA to DL short connection time

As per the norm with USA domestic flights, I've had my domestic flight moved to an earlier departure - leaving me 1 hour 50 minutes, if we land on time ar LAX. Originally was 2 hour 25 minutes.

My question is - has anyone had help making this connection time from a VA flight to a Delta flight?

I've seen that some airlines greet people at the gate to ensure connections are made.

Last time I had this level of connection I was running from TBIT to T3 with suitcases in tow (TBIT domestic transfer wouldn't accept even though tagged), then all the way to the gate. As much as I love a good workout, it wasn't a good start to a trip.

I'm VA Platinum and will be flying business.

Thoughts & suggestions appreciated.

Depends where in the US you fly on to: the following are the minimum connecting times at LAX from VA to DL (according to Amadeus GDS). The majority seems to be a minimum connecting time of 1 hour 50 minutes, i.e. you would be just within minimum connecting times.

Hope this helps.

I've made a short connection time of 1hr 50 minutes before, with time to spare.
If you are on a single PNR (ticket) Delta will move you to the next available flight if you miss your connection.
