LOS ANGELES (CNS) - California's two largest cities are just 120 miles apart, but the 40-minute airline flight from Los Angeles to San Diego costs more than a flight to Europe, it was reported today.
A one-way ticket from LAX to San Diego's Lindbergh Field costs a minimum of $577, according to a survey undertaken by the San Diego Union-Tribune.
Compare that to a flight to London, which can be had for as little as $316.
A spokesperson for one airline told the Union-Tribune most of the passengers flying on the route are connecting at LAX to another city, and do not pay the full fare.
As for cheaper ways to get between the two cities, the Amtrak Surfliner charges $31 for service between the two Union Stations, and the LAX Fly-Away bus connects with nonstop service to LAX for $7.
But if people really want to fly to San Diego, the cheapest option is a $107 ticket -- changing planes in friendly Phoenix.
