    Jeez that's a bit ordinary - how do you then get to LHR? Same plane or something domestic?

    Alright, I thought about holding as well, but it seemed a bit far from LAX for me.
    But indeed, the views would be quite nice indeed.

    Very common to see aircraft in a holding pattern in Australia, mostly Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne. Most common holding pattern is what is known as the "racetrack".

    Few aircraft, Melbourne bound, are in a holding pattern ATM.

    With that being over the Grand Canyon, the pilot may have been trying to give everyone some good photo ops. I don't think it happens often, but my parents told me their plane did something similar over the Grand Canyon so everyone could see. If it's due to what airnrail said, then this was just a good place to do it.

    Probably instructed by air traffic control to do some circle work (it's called holding) in order to arrive at LAX a bit later. Can't see the speed on your photo but the pilot may have been instructed to reduce it too. Very common procedure sometimes hundreds of miles away from busy airports.
