Flights Review

Nov 23, 2019

Flight with Qantas was great! As a caution to others - Immigration in LA was terrible. They were soooo slow, I nearly missed my connection which was 2hrs 25mins after landing. Very stressful! Thanks for the easy booking Wotif!

Jun 25, 2019

When I booked my flights many many months ago (last year) I was advised no seat selection available. But, when I went to check on my flights etc much later seat allocation was available but I missed out and ended up squashed in the back row. Now have extremely sore knee, hip and shoulder trying to get into a reasonable position for a very long flight. You should remind early bookers to come back and select their seat on a particular date. I booked well in advance and should not be penalised. I guess I now have the dame problem going home. 🤔

What airlines fly direct from Sydney Airport to LAX?

The mere thought of travelling from Sydney to Los Angeles is thrilling enough. But it gets better. A range of airlines offer direct flights, including Qantas and Delta Air Lines. You'll be ordering your third round from your hotel lobby bar before long.

How many flights are there from Sydney Airport to LAX?

You won't need to work your holiday around your flight from Sydney to Los Angeles. That's because there are 7 flights per day to select from. Now how's that for choice?

Sydney Airport to LAX Flying Tips How to survive a long flight:
  • Keep away from alcohol and caffeine-filled drinks, like spirits and coffee. Instead, sip on pure H2O before and during your flight. Your body and mind will thank you for it, and you'll be far less likely to lose the first few days of your getaway to exhaustion.
  • Decide on what your priorities are for your flight. To curl up and sleep or wander around a lot? Where you choose to sit for that lengthy flight can make or break your entire experience. Check out the great pointers available online about the most suitable place for you based on your type of aircraft.
  • Consider taking a few healthy snacks on board. If nothing on the airline menu thrills you, at least your fave granola bars will be within reach.
  • Spend your time in the air reading up as much as possible about where you're going. A well-rounded holiday starts with knowing a thing or two about the region’s culture, history and traditions.
  • The benefits of a good quality neck pillow shouldn't be overlooked. Look online for a product which other experienced travellers rate well.
What to wear on a long flight:
  • Unless you're travelling first or business class, it'll soon dawn on you that long-haul flights are no place to parade the latest runway fashions. Kit yourself out comfortably in plenty of layers and shoes like joggers in case your feet swell.
  • Think about donning some compression tights or socks for longer flights. These can make your time on board more comfy and can minimise your chances of the dangerous condition called deep vein thrombosis (DVT).
Q: Can you take food on international flights?
  • Doughnuts, chips, your nan's cupcakes ... Yep, you can bring them. There’s nothing like having a supply of goodies on hand to help make that marathon flight fly by. Just be mindful of liquid restrictions and leave the Camembert at home — it's poor etiquette to bring strong-smelling food on board.
