Nonstop Flights and Layovers
Travelers looking to fly from DUR 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 20 hour 7 minutes may not be realistic.
Flight Hacking DUR 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 DUR to LAX — but Champion Traveler does!
