Mitch and I arrived at about 10pm last night in New York. We were pretty wrecked after the flight over. The flight from SYD->LAX was pretty good with Virgin Australia, but we didn’t sleep much unfortunately. After a 2 hour wait to get through customs & immigration (awful when you just want to sit and relax) in LA we finally made it to the gate for our flight from LAX->JFK with Delta.
The flight was packed, and very uncomfortable! It felt like the longest 6 hours of my life, and Mitch and I weren’t sitting together so it was pretty boring.
Jumped in a cab and got taken through The Bronx & Harlem at 11pm at night which was interesting. Its great that NYC has flat rate cab fares from JFK to Manhattan for $45! We were expecting it to cost a lot more.
