Flight Review: American Airlines LAX to Dallas Fort Worth

Who:  Me, Daisy (3.5y), Sky (1) and Husband
Where:  American Airlines 2450, Los Angeles LAX to Dallas Fort Worth
How Long?  Approx. 3.5 hours

If you are transiting from International to Domestic at LAX, allow yourself plenty of time.  It took us approx 1 hour to clear Immigration, collect our suitcases and then join the lengthy queue at Customs.  It is only a 5 minute walk from Tom Bradley International Terminal to the American Airlines Domestic Terminal.

Check In
Checked our bags in and received our tickets at the Transit Desk. Once at the Domestic Terminal, we were told our stroller was too big and had to check this in (always make sure you have your baby carrier on hand in case this happens!)

The flight was on time and we were all seated together (take note Cathay Pacific….)  There were no bassinet options so we kept our baby in the Ergo carrier.
No entertainment so make sure to bring your own books & DVDs/ipads
You can buy food & drink onboard or do what we did and buy an overpriced sandwich at LAX.
Friendly & courteous staff
This 737 had a 3-3 configuration and our Economy seats were fairly roomy.

Keep your baby carrier with you, in case you have to check-in your stroller
