It is just a matter of prefference. I like LAX over LB, but that's me.
The 1130 should workout just fine.
SS Norway (12 times) '85 - '97; Radiance OS 06/01; Island Princess 11/04, Grand Princess 11/04/05, Golden Princess 7/21/06, Golden Princess 2/24/07, Explorer of the Seas 12/23/07, Island Princess 11/15/08
My folks live in Long Beach and the info provided is accurate and I would definitely take LGB if given the opportunity. LAX is a great airport for the job it does BUT I use the satellites whenever possible. 1130 isn't too early either.
We flew in and out of LGB when we sailed Sumitt in March 2006. Everything the previous posters have said is true. I would just mention that the food choices at LBG are sparse to say the least. We heard that there is a resturant upstairs somewhere, but didn't get there. A big mistake! There was nothing except vending machines once we cleared security. As we had a 5 hour flight to New York, we were quite hungry by the time we arrived home.
