Hello; going to LA
and Disneyland will really be a great trip.
There are 3 options.
Each of these airlines will allow you to fly into LAX
and then fly out of SFO
can fly you direct to LAX
from Melbourne, each seat will have your own Personal TeleVision. Helps on those long flights.
gives you 2 options from Melbourne to LAX
direct 14 hours or a short stop over in Auckland. The stop over adds a bit of time but its a nice break.
Qantas may have AVOD "Audio Visual On Demand" available so that means you will be able to watch a movie any time you want; pause; stop, start change channel which is really nice. The leg room on Qantas is only 31 inch so I find it a bit tight. The trip back on Qantas will require a stop in Sydney unless you fly American Airlines first to LAX
to connect to a direct flight to Melbourne. SFO
is a nice new modern airport LAX
is a dump in comparision.
has daily flight from Melbourne to LAX
with a stop over in Sydney.
No PTVs are available in economy. United probably offers the best prices. One good thing about UA
is that your American holiday starts the time you step aboard the aircraft and the LAX
terminal is better for UA
Fly the 747-400 from Melbourne to Los Angeles via Auckland daily. The 747s on Air NZ
have 34 inch seat pitch and have PTVs with AVOD. You will get a lunch service out of Melbourne to Auckland; Then dinner and breakfast on the flight to Los Angeles. The flight times leave MEL
about 12;00pm and arrive LAX
at 12:40pm. QF
flights leave at 10;25am. Air NZ
fly the 777 out of SFO
to Auckland, and then a 777 or 747 to Melbourne. The 777 has the same AVOD as the 747 but the pitch is only 32 inch. better than Qantas but not as good as the 747.
The 747 offers the best seating arrangement for a famly of 4 as the 4 centre seats are good for this.
The 777 only offers 3 x 3 x 3 so not as good for a family of 4.
My choice Air NZ
