I've been flying Soutwest until last year, as I broke down to get a nonstop flight from Philly to San Diego via American...soooooo much of a difference.  SW, always had a multi-hour layover when flying out/back.  When I was 10 years younger that worked, not anymore  :D

Hey, I'm also from Philly and stopped flying Southwest in favor of American. The American nonstop flight from Philly to San Diego is so much better. I spring for Main Plus so I can get free bags (to bring back all my stuff from SDCC) and I can choose any of the seats for free. Good to see another Philadelphian in here!

I have secured my tickets from NYC.  My flight to SD is a frequent flyer reward flight.  For the trip back, I decided to save money by skipping Sunday and flying back on the redeye on Saturday night.  I chose Delta because I had a $100 credit I earned last year.  The price of the flight was $188 after the credit was applied.  I did this last year and the savings on the flight and having one less hotel night more than makes up for not going to the con on Sunday.

I fly from a small town in Quebec tickets are always expensive(~$1000) since my airport on has one flight a day. One arrival and One Departure to Montreal that is it, not other flights anywhere. Normally I  have to spend a night in Montreal because the flight to my airport is once a day at 9am. So what I do, is to try and find a flight with points that will get me to Montreal early enough to catch the 9am flight from anywhere in the usa. I then fly to that airport, if San Diego or LAX dont work. Most times it is Vegas, last year it was Vancover. I have a little spreed sheet that I use for the diffrent option and I get one ways because the round trip option never work out time wise since I normal will lose a day in one of the directions.

And here I thought I had it bad with the 1.5 hour drive to Dallas to catch a flight. Yikes! That sounds like a hassle and expensive but it also sounds like you’ve got everything down to a science.  :)

Low cost airline Breeze just added San Diego as a destination, starting flights in May.

"Breeze Airways’ new San Diego nonstop routes include the debut of routes for the hub to Cincinnati, Jacksonville, Norfolk, Raleigh-Durham, and Pittsburgh."

Has anyone flown on Breeze? Curious...low cost= lower service?
It is 2024, and I am still asking...where's my flyin' car??!! @fannishmarcia
