Someone should have pointed out that Ontario International Airport is the preferred airport to fly into if going to Disneyland. This point always comes up when the airlines push to expand LAX's runways/terminals.
Google Maps says:
LAX 41min/1hr10min traffic 35.5mi via 105
ONT 44min/1hr0min traffic 36.5mi via 60->57
But we know better, dont we
Any mass transit project like the one suggested here would be easier to build along this route.
The airlines say that its not profitable to fly in elsewhere b/c people dont want to fly into ONT b/c they dont know where that is. So they continue to use LAX and pay steep landing fees that are above the others as a penalty for creating too much traffic.
I would like to see fewer flights from LAX and more flights using ONT and BUR (Burbank), after all, LAX wasn't supposed to be our only airport. We were supposed to have a network of regional airports to balance out the traffic. Los Angeles World Airports runs LAX, ONT, Van Nuys, and even Palmdale.
