Frequently asked questions
What Should I Expect On This Route?
When traveling from London to Los Angeles’ LAX airport, you’ll have your pick of carrier and flight schedule. Though the flight is quite long, clocking in at 11 and a half hours at minimum, you’ll be able to enjoy flying on a route that suffers from few weather or air traffic delays. As a major international flight route, flights along this route can be extremely expensive, so be sure to check with us here at Skyscanner before you buy your ticket.
Will I Have A Layover?
You’ll probably have a layover when you fly this route, although there are also nonstop flights on occasion. The location of the layover varies, although layovers tend to add about three or four hours to your total travel time regardless of where the layover is. The addition of a layover can make the flight as long as 18 hours, although 14 or 15 hours are more common times for flights with layovers. Some of the layovers are in less-trafficked airports, which means that you may be left without much to do during your layover if you’re unlucky.
The flights on this flight route depart via London’s Heathrow Airport or the nearby London Gatwick Airport. As a major international airport, Heathrow has a huge number of dining and shopping options to keep you busy before departure. You’ll probably depart via Terminal 3 at Heathrow.
Gatwick Airport handles slightly less than half of the flights on this route and isn’t as lush with things to do before departure as Heathrow. You’ll still be able to get your fill of food and charge your devices if your flight leaves from Gatwick, though.
Arriving At LAX
Los Angeles International Airport, known as LAX, is an extremely busy airport that tends to sacrifice passenger satisfaction for high throughput. You’ll likely land in Terminal 8 at LAX.
After landing at LAX, you can hop on a bus or hotel shuttle to get to your final transportation. There are also plans to add rail access to LAX, though there currently isn’t any. LAX’s options for transportation tend to be superseded by rental cars and taxis.
Though LA’s warm desert climate is enjoyable, getting away from LAX via the freeway is often hampered by extreme year round traffic. If you’re traveling in the daytime, expect to be sitting in traffic most of the time.
