Always avoid the lowest fare, as that has the most restrictions like no refunds, excessive luggage fees, and last boarding.

Years ago, I remember Virgin America was like $20 more than Jet Blue, but allowed up to 10 pieces of checked luggage, versus 2 for Jet Blue.


My ego is writing checks that my stroke can't cash.

I fly SW wherever I can.

There first come seating, no bag fees and one year exchange on change/cancel is nice.

And Cokes are still free, IIRC.

Burbank to Sacramento is like 7 hours of driving pleasure.
I am willing to drive 3 days to avoid TSA let alone airports, cramped seating,...
Plus I know lots a nice places to stop, stay, and eat.

The main catch with the first come seating is that you have to remember to check in 23.99 hours in advance to be at the start of the boarding order (or pay extra for early boarding). Being late to board and getting a middle seat is not so bad as you can pick your row mates. I look for skinny people.

Soft drinks are free as are the snacks. I think they still give me four drink coupons per year for my birthday. I often don't use them since I drive when I land, but that means my skinny row mates get surprise free drinks.

I don't know about flying with a cue, but I knew a women who could fly with a broom. She was a real witch.

Bob,

Think the free drinks are courtesy of either your credit card company or Rapid Rewards.

Mitch,

I drive from Rochester to Vegas and Vegas to Rochester once each year. 2409 miles each way. Hard to argue with flying. By the time I get just south of Cleveland, my SW non stop flight would be landing in Vegas. In the reverse direction, I would not even be getting to Grand Junction, CO. Only another 2000 miles to go!!! Perhaps you should look into TSA Pre-check. Fastest way through security.
