When I told you what I wanted to know
You said “take me to Ontario”
When I asked you, “why Ontario? ”
You said, “it sounds good on the radio” — go!
(The Posies, “Ontario”)
Fun fact of the day: it costs $448 one way to go from LAX to Ontario – if the ticket is purchased separately. That’s just about $7.47 a mile to fly the 60mi to San Bernadino, on one of five daily flights.
I couldn’t believe this, so I checked it on Travelocity – and, except for a web only $181 special, it is actually that much. The roundtrip is a comparative bargain at $468.
According to the Whittier Daily News though, if you’re taking that extra leg of a flight as part of a longer flight, it’s usually only a $29- $49 add on. Which makes a lot of sense. I’m actually surprised it’s even that much, that there isn’t some sort of incentive to the airlines to use the Ontario connections to draw more people away from having to drive or transport themselves in and out of LAX. Free connector flight if you just won’t clog up the 405!
