In a column published Monday, Steve Lopez wrote that Southwest would offer flights from Burbank to LAX during Carmageddon. That was satire.
Now, JetBlue is offering a flyover from Long Beach to Burbank for $4. Not satire.
LOL. Ridiculous. I think it’s funny, but such a waste of fuel.
More thoughts re: Carmageddon: While I get the knee-jerk reaction to tell everyone “Get the hell outta Dodge,” I feel like there could’ve been more of a push to just stay local and maybe discover a new bar down the street, and a restaurant around the corner. It’s entirely possible to survive by walking or biking to your local businesses. It’s better for the local economy as well as the environment.
