I'm looking at buying flights with Qantas JFK - LAX - MEL. The layover in LAX is only 1hr 10 minutes!! This is the only connection available with a well priced fare. It is myself and 3 children who will be 12, 10 and 8. Will it be ok? Surprised they would offer the flights together if they thought it was going to be a problem but am concerned that if the initial flight is at all delayed we are not going to make the connection. Any advice? Tried calling Qantas and after 35mins on hold I gave up!
