Our trip begins on Qantas Q107 with a bumpy take off due to the wind.
No upgrade as the plane was filled to capacity. Hoping for one on the way home. Had good seatmate who was very accommodating when we needed to move around. Dinner/lunch was good I had the beef and Ian had the chicken. First leg 12 and half hours to LA through customs and collected bags before heading to gate for AA 2448 flight to Dallas.
Long layover in LA ran into Chris and Kelly( Ian’s niece) Baker at LAX they were flying home from Brisbane. Flight from LAX to DFW uneventful nice to have wifi. Everything looks tinder dry from the air.
We worked out we had been up 30+ hours by the time we reached the hotel at 7 pm Sunday.
