I'm flying from Adelaide to Fort Lauderdale in March to go on a cruise. The flight is out of Adelaide through Sydney and onto Los Angeles then fort Lauderdale. The return flight is via Melbourne The flight to los Angeles is with Virgin Aust then the remaining leg to FLL is Virgin America. Can anyone give me some advice on the procedures at the various airports regarding checking luggage, customs etc. At what points do I collect and recheck luggage, when do I have to go through customs? I have done some research but someone may have done this exact trip?
