    The bad news is that there is a 15-hour layover at LA…

      Was in LA a few weeks ago for a long layout. Might have been just where I went, but the place is kinda a dumb. The pollution was also alot worse than I expected. I guess it would have been like Sydney, but was shocked. 15-Hrs would be hell, but they have in and out and Panda express there

        Yep, California as a whole has turned into a disturbing and filthy place. Excrement on the sidewalk is now becoming the norm from all the homeless - who are not looked after by their government representatives in Washington.

          I talking more about the air pollution. Quality was worse than Bangkok when I was there. I know there is a homeless problem and it will only get worse, but Nancy Pelosi needs to do her job and budget better. I just hope other cities are much nicer. I think I'll try Texas or Florida next

            Nancy Pelosi needs to do her job and budget better.

            I'm no expert in the US political system, but Nancy Pelosi isn't a member of the government in California, so she has no say in any budget that would affect homeless people.

            She is a member of the US house of representatives, representing a portion of California. But the house of representatives doesn't handle issues like homelessness, that's a state government issue, or perhaps a local government issue.

            • +5 votes

              @Russ: Russ you are correct its a state government issue, not washington.


              @Russ: I don't understand the US state system, but I know she is a big player and has been since the 80's. She is a the representative for California's 12th congressional district


              @Russ: Ronald Reagan and the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act of 1987 would disagree with you. As would House of Representatives politicians Stewart McKinney and Bruce Vento. And the other 262 House of Representatives politicians that voted for it. And probably the representatives responsible for Tenant-Based Rental Assistance, Project-Based Rental Assistance, Public Housing Operating Funds, and Public Housing Capital Grants. And probably the representatives working on the American Housing and Economic Mobility Act of 2019,the Basic Assistance for Students in College (BASIC) Act, the Homeless Children and Youth Act, the Ending Homelessness Act of 2019, the Ensuring Equal Access to Shelter Act, the Eviction Crisis Act, Fair Chance at Housing Act, Family Stability and Opportunity Vouchers Act, Fighting Homelessness with Services and Housing Act, Fostering Stable Housing Opportunities Act, Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, Help End Abusive Living Situations (HEALS) Act, Housing is Infrastructure Act and Keeping Families Together Act of 2019.


                @Thommo: Interesting list, happy to be educated.

                I looked up a few, and at least one of the acts you mentioned, the "Fighting Homelessness Through Services and Housing Act", was sponsored by Dianne Feinstein (Democrat - California). So the Californian Democrats are currently taking measures to combat homelessness.

                The particular problem that Pharmacy mentioned above, human excrement on the footpath, appears to be very much a local government problem. I just used Google Maps to try to find a public toilet near "Central LA" and Hollywood, and there's nothing. The closest are in Beverley Gardens, some 5km from Hollywood, so it appears the homeless have little option. Availability of public toilets is very much a local government responsibility. So I'm struggling to see why Pharmacy singled out Nancy Pelosi for criticism.

                The other problem, is that a small fraction of homeless people prefer to be homeless. Los Angeles has a very mild climate, so I imagine intentionally-homeless people would gravitate to the area, and no amount of making shelters available will get those people off the streets. So public toilets (and perhaps better policing) are the only real solution to excrement on the streets.

            @Pharmacy: I reckon the best parts of the US are outside of the cities. Highlights for me in no particular order:

            Southern Utah
            Northern Arizona
            Blackhills in South Dakota
            Rockies and Southern Colorado
            California outside of the cities


              @Seaword: How did you visit and explore these places? I'm planning on a multi month trip around the US with a heavy emphasis on national parks. I'm thinking maybe a van because I really want to experience all the 'true' american nostalgia stuff I've grown up with on TV (eg remote highway diners, small town hospitality and sports etc.). Cheesy I know but if I'm going there it seems more enjoyable than just flying straight to the nat parks.

                @900dollaridoos: For this sort of trip in the US, you will definitely need a car. I did road trips to those areas (yes, much nicer than the slums in most big cities), and driving around is the only practical way. Bullet trains virtually don't exist in the US, forget Greyhound or Amtrak. Many of those 'remote highway diners' kind of look more like scenes from American horror movies.

                @900dollaridoos: Sorry forgot to get back to you. I lived in Canada for a bit so did these trips separately.

                You can do campervans but I found them to be too expensive. I would hire a car, go to Walmart and stock up on camping equipment, tents, sleeping bags etc. Outside of the big cities America is a pretty cheap place to travel, although the dollar is not helping.

                On days you are not feeling it, you can get a cheap motel, there are heaps!

                American's have a bad rap but I have always found them to be really friendly and they love Australian's outside of the cities, inside sometimes as well.

                Happy to answer more questions.


              @Seaword: Thanks. Have copied the list into my travel document for future use. I will look into all these locations next time I transit via the USA for a few days.

    Or just publish classified US documents for free extradition to the USA with a layover at Belmarsh. You'll have a grand time jury.

    • +7 votes

      Grand jury?

      That would be justice. Assange faces a secretive security court that disallows defense. It has never found anybody not guilty.

      The phrase kangaroo court was coined more than one hundred years ago to describe fake trials against Australians. The kangaroo courts continues to this day.


      To be fair, the US has never charged him with anything. It is the preemptive boot licking of the UK and Aus virtue signalling to the US that is truly shameful. #freeassange

      On a lighter note, do you still get Q points when booking through an agent?

    Qantas doesn’t fly to IAD (Washington Dulles) - the LAX-IAD flight is operated by Alaska Airlines (and other x -IAD flights may be operated by other airlines)


      Not saying that you're saying that's a bad thing but I flew Alaska Airlines JFK to SFO last year and it was unremarkable i.e. the perfect domestic flight.


      Indeed, Qantas ticket, but some legs could be American Airlines or other partners as well.

    Don't mind the layover (day room by the airport, lunch in Santa Monica, pre flight drinks in El Segendo) but that overnight red eye across Yankland looks brutal.

    I actually would pay $300 more if I don't have to transit in the US west coast to get to my final USA destination.

    therefore, I am always a fan to the US via CX and JL… may be not CX now, but JL will be my new favourite.

    of course if your final destination is SFO / LAX / YVR, direct is better.

    if you have to muck around for 12 hours in US west coast airport, you will spend much more in drinks and whatnot, if you do not have free lounge access.
