Should I spend the extra $$ to fly into Orange County?

Should I spend the extra $$ to fly into Orange County?

  1. SophSzelag30

    I have a hockey tournament in April in Irvine California. I live in central NJ, so I use EWR as my hub, and am loyal to United. With that said, I have been pricing my trip, and LAX is $100 cheaper than flying into Orange County. Do you think it is worth the extra $100 to fly into Orange County or will LAX do?

    Welcome [USER=5058]@SophSzelag30[/USER] – Orange County is certainly a lot easier to get into/out of, especially if you’re already going to be in that area. Another thing to consider is what time of day you’ll be arriving/departing. If either are during rush hour I think you’ll really appreciate the shorter commute.

    That being said, I’m certainly no expert. I’ve only been to SNA once but it was certainly less hassle than LAX.

    Given that UA flies to both LAX and SNA, if you are talking in terms of one passenger it is totally worth it. Not only do you skip being in LAX, rental cars I believe are still directly in the terminal garage and I will echo the comments about traffic etc. LAX requires a shuttle to rental cars and then there is plenty of traffic. If you are ride-sharing etc, than that’s even more of a reason provided the flight times work for you.

    If you’re relying on Taxi or Uber, I’d fly into Orange County since the fares would exceed the flight price increase. Even with a rental car, it’s not a fun commute from LAX to Irvine, especially weekdays during peak times.
