My wife and I are two of those formerly loyal frequent-flyer passengers who once enjoyed flying out of SBA. But in the last year, we’ve driven down to LAX more times than in the previous 20 years combined. We love being five minutes away from our local airport, but it’s just not worth it anymore. For the additional fare tacked on to the 19-minute SBA-to-LAX flight, we can drive to L.A., spend the night at a nice airport hotel, park our car for a week, and still save hundreds of dollars; or we can take the Airbus or Roadrunner Shuttle, save even more, and not have to worry about driving and parking.
