Best Fight path Melbourne ( Aus) to Orlando (US)

Would value everyone's opinion on what is the best and most direct flight path and airline to get a family from Melb to Orlando return.

I prefer more direct, premium economy for any long legs.

Ive thought melb - honolulu , rest then honalulu - orlando but cant seem to find any Melb - Hon direct fights .

I'd try the following options:

MEL-LAX-MCO or

MEL-SYD-DFW-MCO on Quantas connecting to American

You would have to have a separate ticket if you wanted to fly America's best -Southwest, Alaska, Virgin America or Frontier. Since you want premium, have you considered Air New Zealand via AKL and LAX? Their brand new premium seat (77W only) is very nice.

Actually just did Air NZ LAX - AKL in those seats and agree with you 100% they are great, was just trying to cut off more time now I know our kids can take the trip length, and the changeover in akl adds a few hours to the trip

"More direct" would definitely point to the MEL-SYD-DFW-MCO with QANTAS to DFW and then AA.

Hilarious typo by Geomedic :) - tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g1-i10702-k4911756…
