JetBlue’s $4 Fare Sells Out

LONG BEACH (CBS) — Who needs the 405 Freeway when you have JetBlue?

The airliner’s #OverThe405 program, offering $4 one-way flights, literally over Carmageddon, between Burbank’s Bob Hope International Airport and Long Beach Airport on July 16, sold out in a matter of hours.

» Complete Coverage: 405 Freeway Closure

The Saturday $4 fare from the valley to the beach went on sale Wednesday and sold out in three hours.

The sold out 35 minute flights from Burbank to Long Beach will depart at 12:20 p.m. or 6:35 p.m. on Saturday. Quick trips from Long Beach will take off at 1:50 p.m. or 7:55 p.m.

For those who are looking to get away from the Carmageddon madness altogether, JetBlue is still offering a 40.5 percent discount on the airfare of any vacation to Las Vegas from Burbank or Long Beach, and an additional $40.50 off their entire trip.

    what a dumb idea…

    I think it’s an excellent idea.

    HYSTERICAL !!!! They should do this EVERY weekend !!!!

      I agree with you. Even if people have to business between the two places, I think it would be fun going for a flight for that price.

    And with the time it will take to get to Burbank, go through security, taxi the plane to the runway, takeoff, circle around LA before being cleared to land at LAX and then getting through the traffic at and near LAX to get to wherever you want to go, it should only take about 4 hours.

      Except it’s Long Beach, not LAX, so no circling and no traffic.
