WTF LAX?

leave a comment »

I’m currently sitting in the United terminal at LAX waiting for my flight, and the plane that’s currently at my gate is going to Orange County.  Has traffic in LA become so bad that flying from LA to Orange County is a faster alternative to driving?  Let’s find out.

Google Maps says the distance between the two airports is 41.5 miles and would take 47 minutes to drive.  United says the flight itself takes 40 minutes, but factoring in getting to the airport an hour early for security and picking up baggage, the entire trip via airplane should take somewhere around 110 minutes.  It’s obvious that it’s much faster to drive, so all I want to know is…

Who are these people that I’m watching board right now!?!  And why does United even offer this flight to begin with??
