The flight time from LAX to Auckland is 12 hours. From LAX to Sydney is 14 hours. Some travelers like to break that up by stopping and enjoying a South Pacific Island.
- Fiji: is the easiest stopover because there are a lot more flights between LAX and Fiji, and between Fiji, Australia and New Zealand.
- Tahiti: has flights from LAX several days a week.
- Cook Islands: flights from LAX are once a week. There are daily flights between Auckland and the Cook Islands.
- Vanuatu: this is a great stop departing Australia and the continuing to the US. It can be a stopover, or a trip departing LAX.
Did you know it is just a bit longer to fly to a fabulous South Pacific island, than to fly to Hawaii? What a great place for your beach or diving vacation!
