We had some moments of dread, knowing we were flying Air Pacific from Nadi - LA (read the Air Pacific reviews you'll understand), however, airpoints gave us a free trip up, so needless to say we had no choice.  We were prepared for the worst.   As is often the case in this type of thing, the worst doesn't happen, and one: we left on time, two: we'd skipped the queue and boarded early, three: the younger kids were changed in pj's and slept all night, and four: one of the smoothest flights we've had (nothing short of a miracle on all counts!)

Fell out of aircraft, into 'beautiful' LA airport (not!) and proceeded to customs, (and through it), surprisingly quickly and effeciently, (and may I add even came across friendly American  customs people!)    Had pre-ordered shuttle, and everything went according to plan - (at this stage we're waiting for the world to end) .... but no, it's going amazingly smoothly.   Arrived at Hotel (Quality Inn), downtown LA, which was great value for our tribe at $70 per night per room (2 rooms), including breakfast.  Kids loved pool, and rooms very tidy, and staff good.   Went to Denny's (on site) for dinner and hit the sack.  For those of you who have done that flight, you'll will understand fighting sleep during the 6 oclock news!
