Real Madrid’s flight lasted more than 12 hours from leaving the Spanish capital until the players landed at the Los Angeles Airport (LAX). The atmosphere on-board was relaxed. José Mourinho spent time with all the players, speaking animatedly with some of them on more than one occasion and even sharing a joke or two.
The Real Madrid squad’s flight left Barajas a little after 12:30 (local Spanish time) and flew over Santiago de Compostela, Greenland and the Labrador Peninsula in Canada. The players made the most of the long journey by resting, watching films, playing cards, listening to music or reading.
