Hi, all -
My husband and I are traveling to Fiji this summer for our 10th anniversary. We have round-trip flights booked from LAX to Nadi, but I still need to book our travel from Denver to LAX. I'm planning to book Southwest. We're going to allow plenty of time on the front end (arriving in LAX around 4 p.m. to catch an 11:30 p.m. flight), but I'm wondering how much time we'll need on our way back. Our flight from Nadi is supposed to arrive at 1:25 p.m. Is it practical to book a 3:55 p.m. Southwest flight? I know we'll need to go through customs, collect our baggage, haul ourselves over to Terminal 1, and check in. The next direct Southwest option isn't until 7:50 p.m. and I'd rather not sit around, but I also don't want to be crazy stressed if I'm putting us in a tight situation. I will have a travel agent to help me if things get hairy.
Your advice is very much appreciated, thanks!
