    ONT was my home airport for the last 25 years but, unfortunately, I'm being forced to fly out of LAX due to a decreasing choice of airlines and flights out of ONT. [​IMG]

    Yea, Ontario is too far away to be included in the "LA" area airports.

    I actually think SNA is too far away too, at least for anyone live in the City of LA

    Grouping SNA/ONT with LAX at rush hour would be equivalent to grouping BOS with JFK.

    LGB is my favorite airport for Jet Blue and Horizon flights but unfortunately stuck with LAX for long haul flights.

    How about SW Florida / Tampa Bay Airports? TPA/SRQ/RSW. TPA is a world class facility considering it's a regional. MCO another choice.

    ONT is technically an LA airport though (managed by LAWA, and considered a reliever airport by the airlines) plus, its only 45 mins from LAX on a good day, which is eqiuvalent to many other groupings here on MP (how long would it take to drive from ERW to JFK in rush hour?)

    Seriously, it takes me the same amount of time to drive from my house to LAX and ONT. If you are including SNA in Orange County, you need to include ONT in San Bernardino.

    Hell, if you're going to follow LAWA's rules, you'll need to lump in Palmdale as well!

    FWIW, ONT is often considered a co-terminal with LAX, so seems worth including.

    If ISP in New York is included, then ONT should be included since it's just as relevant to the metro area.

    Totally agree (and not only because it is one of my home airports).
    Not to mention ONT's superior facilities as compared to BUR (which somehow always reminds me of Phyilis Diller).

    Edited to add: Just noticed that SMF is included in the SF area airports...that is quite a stretch a. Much more so than including ONT with LA...which is hardly a stretch.

    For those of us that live here, the debate is always whether to fly out of LAX or SBA. Can SBA be added?

    We're listening. Also, we're looking more closely if this test concept is or has enough "legs" yet to deserve a final place on milepoint. My guess is that we will be waiting until months end before any decision. Appreciate all the ideas and those have not been posted to deaf ears of milepoint.

    I lived near LGB for many years and I mainly used 3 airports, LGB, SNA and LAX. In that order. So I don't see a problem grouping them together. And when I moved up to LA later as we were in the middle of the previous "recession", I started flying Southwest out of BUR (the real airport of the stars). I don't see a problem including that one too. LGB, BUR and LAX are all in the same county, but SNA and ONT are just one county over, and plenty of people on the edge of LA county use them.

    +1 for ONT to be included here. My in-laws live near LA County/Orange County border and there are, of course, plenty of others in a similar location that have multiple airports within an hour, ONT being the closest. Easier to get to than SNA, and much much easier than LAX.
