in june went to LA. I spent all of my days down at IN n Out. Probaly the best spotting. If you want to catch a 346 then thats not the spot along with QF and most United, CO, and delta planes. If you want to catch some big boys that is the spot. Almost all the 744s use the runway. 345 uses the runway around 5. A lot of 777s use it to. Southwest uses it a lot.
So basically you should check the airports web site and type in the ailrline you want to see and it gives you the times. Or you could just stand there all day like me. Most 340s and 330s use it. There is also a parking garage there whichc is good for level shots. And MD-11s.

What a way to make a double-double taste even better - a steady stream of widebodies on approach overhead. I always figured they put that In-n-Out burger there so that when people got home from trips, they could have a double-double as quickly as possible. I know I take advantage of it every time I go into LAX. Nice that it works out for the spotters among us as well. Enjoy!

How can you hate them? They are cut fresh! The food there is the best because it's family owned. I am going to have to take a short hop to LAX this winter to spot and dine on the best burgers in the world! Anybody game let me know I get to IFP late December.

I've been wanting to do this for quite a while now, and it looks like I'll have the opportunity next month. Anybody have an estimate on how long of a walk it is from the LAX Westin (not sure if I'll have a car with me at that point). Thanks!

2 options come to mind if you don't want to walk for 30 minutes through what is probably not the most pedestrian-friendly neighborhood.. 1) The hotel, being an "airport" hotel, is likely to have an airport shuttle, and they may be willing to drop you off. If that doesn't work, then go downstairs and get a cab - again, it's an airport hotel, there will probably always be at least one cab in the driveway. Good luck!

Thanks BURules & Jmsintexas -- I've stayed at the Westin before (but have never been to this In 'n Out) and definitely recall it didn't seem like the most pedestrian-friendly walk along Sepulveda (the time/distance didn't bother me). I do recall the Westin being one of the furthest out of the hotels, but wasn't sure which direction the In 'n Out was from there (of course I'm usually half-asleep on the shuttle, so I could have gone past it a dozen times this year & not realized it). I'll just make sure I do it on one of the upcoming trips where I have a car & drive it. Thanks again for the input!
