I'll be leaving Phila. Airport. Should be a 3 1/2 - 4 1/2 hr plane ride...right? I don't like planes that much, especially when u feel like your on a roller-coaster. Last time I flew it was on 6/6/6 and there was bad turbulence. Kinda freaked me out. Not the greatest time to be flying back from outside the US. But this time ill be prepared with some xanax. How long is your plane ride?

Depends if you are flying direct, if so it should be a 5 hr flight. I fly to ONT so I have a layover in Denver so Ill be traveling for a loooong time.

Surprisingly enough two and a half hours. I guess it's non-stop.

But I'll be landing at LGB not LAX.

Unfortunately there is no direct flights to get from SA to L.A, because its simply to far away.

The most "direct" flight, you stop over on a small island in the Atlantic, to refuel and then fly to Washington D.C and then take a connecting flight to LAX.

I prefer flying via London because its like my second home, my mom stayed there for 7 years before moving to Singapore last month, but I still have allot of friends living there, so I'll stay over for a few days both ways to sort of break the travel in two, no fucking way I'm sitting in a place for 25 hours straight, that shit is crazy!

Yeah, it could have been worse, plus if you look on the bright side, it enables me to go to Amsterdam on my way back home to celebrate my birthday with my European crew.

18 hours incl 1hr stopover in NZ. Nothing special, but its two days after getting back from vietnam, so I'm hoping it take good care over there and im not using the AirNZ toilets to expel high velocity water out of my arse.

Flight to UK - now that's a fucker.

I believe BA flies direct from Gatwick --> Phoenix. Then, you have a ~4hr ride to Coachella.

It might be an option for you.

We are arriving in NV Wednesday night and staying there to party on the strip for a night/day and then road-tripping it to Palm Desert (five hour drive) where we are going to stay in a condo during our Coachella time in Cali.
