Comments Woo Hoo! BRONCOS 24 PANTHERS 10! We arrived at Wananavu Resort in time to see Super Bowl 50; being from Colorado this was a great way to begin our two weeks in Fiji.
Getting to Fiji from LAX; take a direct flight via Fiji Airways 11.5 hours. The return only takes 9.5 hours due to favorable jet winds. Fiji Airways ticket counter is not that easy to find at LAX, signage is lacking, but then they only use the ticket counter for one flight a day. We were able to check our bags all the way from Denver to Fiji since American is partnered with Fiji Airways. You are required to check-in and they will weigh your carry-on. If you exceed 7 Kilos you will have to lighten it up. My wife was over by 2 Kilos and had to put the extra weight in her personal bag. Who came up with that dumb idea? Weight is the same whether in a personal bag or in your carry-on bag! You can also get there by traveling to Auckland on New Zealand Air (partnered with United), but that will add about 5 hours to the trip plus airport time waiting for the connection. If you have desires to see Australia you can go that route as well using Qantas. Passing through immigrations and customs was quick. There are two ATMs after customs and we used one. Some places will take US dollars.
