A big problem the airlines that have come on line with non stop flights from new areas in the USA all chose to do once a week flights on Saturdays. So saturday means many more flights and a longer DAY as it were for the airport as several of the once a week flights are arriving and leaving early morning. If you want non stop to LAX you can chose from Delta or American but both arrive from LAX and leave to return within an hour of each other and only once a week. Although from this spring American are adding a second non stop journey on the Lax routes leaving. LAX 11.15pm on Saturday arriving around 6.30 am Sunday the return flights leave BZE approx 8.15. Have done the Friday overnight from Lax several times and they had a lot of timing/gate problems at the LAX end for the first couple of months, but has settled down to pretty accurate timings now, lets hope the new sat/sun flights settle in faster. When there are no gate problems the overnight flight is great you do not lose your first day in Belize and the return flight is early enough to miss the worst of the Saturday Madness.
We came to the states for our last adventure before we die but as we didn't die yet, there is time for another adventure this time back to Belize.
