In an effort to give the city's motorists another option to avoid the much-dreaded interstate 405 closure, the airline came up with a simple plan: offer $4 flights from Burbank to Long Beach. Fliers could also choose to come back the same way for an additional four bucks. Total flying time is around 45 minutes, excluding nightmares like security, delays and the infamous "last mile" dilemma, and for an extra dollar, participants could enjoy treats like boarding early and enjoying more overhead storage room for their carry-on luggage.
Flights from Burbank to Long Beach will leave at 12:20 p.m. and 6:35 p.m., while those traveling in the opposite direction have the option of taking off at 1:50 p.m. or 7:55 p.m. on Saturday, June 16. The airline is only planning to run the flights for one day, so file this one under "Clever Marketing Stunt."
