Flight Review: American Airlines LAX to Dallas FW (3.5 hrs)

Who:  Me, Daisy (3.5), Sky (1) and husband
Where:  American Airlines 2450, 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 pass through Immigration, collect our bag 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 in our bags and received our tickets at the Transit desk.  Once at the Domestic Terminal, we were told our stroller was too big and we had to check this in (always make sure 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 baby carrier. 
No entertainment so make sure you bring your own books & DVDs
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
