|Quoting AAR90 (Reply 3):|
If arriving from North with LAX landing toward the west, they can expect to fly eastward over Santa Monica with a right turn to final --normally 24R landing. If approaching from East, they can expect "straight-in" (none are straight, but almost so) over the Inland Empire to either 24R or (primarily) 25L.
|Quoting Kaitak744 (Reply 6):|
However, it is very odd that 2 flights 5 minutes apart from each other (BA 744 LHR-LAX, and VS A346 LHR-LAX) on the same route act as if they came from two different places.
|Quoting BAW716 (Reply 7):|
it really depends on traffic flow and winds.
|Quoting AAR90 (Reply 8):|
Winds --or at least the winds being used by different dispatchers-- might find different flights using different enroute routings. Different cruise altitudes due to different acft weight/performance = different enroute winds so... different routings.
