When flying, don't forget Long Beach

June 27, 2004

You gave several good suggestions in "Don't Discount the Major Carriers When It Comes to Low Fares" [Travel Insider, June 13].

I wish to add one more. JetBlue flies out of Long Beach. The airport is easy to use because it is small, has fewer hassles and is cheaper in parking or public transportation.

Some of your readers might think about driving to Long Beach and flying from there.

In case you think I work for JetBlue, I don't. I just have enjoyed its service several times -- comfortable leather seats and individual TV choices.

But from Long Beach Airport, there are several other choices of airlines too, including America West.

Please look into other regional airports besides Los Angeles when you make your next recommendation of low-cost flying.
