Flight Hacking LAX to DLU

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 LAX to DLU — but Champion Traveler does!
