How do we sur­vive the flight?

Bloomberg Businessweek (Asia) - - ETC. -

Fly­ing from the U.S. West Coast to Syd­ney takes about 15 hours; if you’re trav­el­ing from the East Coast, the trip could take 23 hours or longer with a lay­over in Los An­ge­les. If that’s where you con­nect, Tom Marchant of lux­ury travel agency Black To­mato rec­om­mends pay­ing to use new first-class lounges of Qan­tas and Air New Zealand ($398 and $407, re­spec­tively, for an an­nual pass, if you don’t al­ready have ac­cess with the air­lines). Air NZ even “has an open-air ter­race with panoramic views,” he says. Or spend a night in L.A. to break up the flight. Mama Shel­ter (ma­mashel­ter.com/los-an­ge­les/; from $169) is the first state­side out­post of the hip Euro­pean bou­tique ho­tel chain, and it screens films on its roof.
