    Qantas A380 and El Al at LAX Question.

    I'm planning on heading to LAX for some planespotting in the next month or two,and was wondering which days were the best for catching both El Al and the Qantas A380. I was thinking that the A380 wasn't coming in every day,but I can't find an updated schedule. I also didn't know if El Al was every day or not.

    The Qantas A380 comes in everyday around 9:30AM from SYD. As for El Al not sure.You can check the El AL website and look at their timetable. I hope this helps.

    El Al gets in really early, sometimes it is late so you could get lucky

    You're probably better off capturing the departure

    And I believe El Al is only 3 days a week (Tues/Thurs/Sun).

    The A380 almost always uses 24R, which is In-N-Out.

    Most of the time to help ground traffic they will send it to the north to land 24 but it comes from the south and will land on 25 from time to time. If you have only shot at it I would bring a radio and monitor approach and keep an eye out in the sky.

    Also remember there are two flights on Sunday morning. 93 at 7am and 11 at 9:45. The earlier flight has some sweet light on it. If you can get up that early. At least you got two shots at it.
