Nonstop Flights and Layovers

Travelers looking to fly from DLC to LAX can generally find a 1-layover flight. Because there is not usually a direct flight option the real-world direct flight time of 11 hour 58 minutes may not be realistic.


Flight Hacking DLC to LAX

Flight hacking is when you book two tickets instead of a layover, sometimes with different airlines. You will need to either bring only a carry-on bag (highly recommended) or leave yourself plenty of time to go through security again. Flight hacking is completely allowed, but airlines don’t always tell you the cheapest way to get from DLC to LAX — but Champion Traveler does!
