Montego Bay, Jamaica: Los Angeles International, Los Angeles CA (LAX)

Los Angeles International, Los Angeles CA (LAX)

It was really a smooth and quiet landing. I could see a Philippines Airlines (PA) Boeing 747-400 as well as a Thia Airways (TG) Boeing 747-400 at the Bradley International terminal. A Boeing 747-400 from Cathay Pacific was being towed into its gate.

We continued our taxi over to terminal 6. I looked over at Terminal 5 to see if the Air Jamaica (JM) flight was there, but it was not. I called Air Jamaica and the automated system said the departure was at 10:15p, so that was a good sign, the arrival time was 6:59a now instead of 6:25a, which is fine since the car rental places don't open up until 8a. The arrival time of the flight from Jamaica was 9:06p.

It was a tow in gate and while we waited the pilot came on the PA and said that he had forgotten to tell us that the airplane was brand new; it arrived last week and that it lands well; he sounded pretty satisfied with its handling.

We waited quite a while to get off the plane; having landed at 7:43p and off the plane at 8:05p.

In the terminal I headed for the Presidents Club and an agent told me that I can walk between Terminal 5 and 6 and another told my traveling companion that it was not possible. We checked and it was possible. So we hang out in the Presidents Club for a bit since the Delta Crown Room uses T-Mobile and charges for the Internet. We still need to book a hotel.
