      I considered it last week when I was out there. Couldn’t make the turn and still guarantee catching my SAN-JFK flight. They might carry the winter season as demand goes up a big.

      Maybe.

      The times are really bad for LAS arrivals. You almost have to take an extra day off

      I’m guessing they run the schedule they way they do to get each day’s pair of flights with a single crew. If you go early/late that hits duty day limits pretty quickly.

      Single aircraft as well. Maybe go with first flight leaving there at 1p then 2nd in theory could leave there around 430p

    Why? To anyone familiar with the situation: What is the question to which this is the answer?

    I live in Carlsbad, and I really miss the feeder flights to LAX from CLD. I hope CalJet makes a go of it, and expands to flights to LAX and others like SNA (Orange County.) I hear that China Airlines will be launching a flight from Orange County to Taipei next spring.

    CRQ I think is the code that the charter aircraft use for CLD.

      That’s a strange choice. http://www.gcmap.com/mapui?P=crq-cld

      Also, I cannot think of many airport where there are multiple FAA or IATA designators for the same field. Especially not where an airport didn’t recently move or get renamed. BSL/MLH is one but not many others.

      Aren’t FAA “N” designators reserved for military use?

      I think FAA changed YUM to NYL when the navy moved in right?

      Seth Miller I once named a bunch of routers and switches with “nuq” as part of their hostname, which completely blew the minds of the East Coasters I worked with. We also had a “q99” office…

      Sean Roebuck Seth’s fb feed is my favorite though some of the stuff is so obscure that it reads like The Onion 😈

    Here’s my question on slogan…as catchy as it rolls off the tongue, who uses the 5 to get to Vegas? Noone in their right mind in North County would willingly drive through LA to then cut to the 15 when you could just take the 78 or 56 to the 15.

      The slogan refers to driving I-5 to SAN.

    I was eyeing them for a trip to so cal, but wn let me change my cheaper lax trip to sna due to the travel waiver. While I find their business model difficult, their launch timing is also less than ideal through no fault of their own.

      And I was thinking the launch timing isn’t awful. Pick up on the winter season demand into Vegas and most folks don’t but domestic flights more than 2-3 months out anyways.
