This is great news. I used SBA airport over last summer. Airport is a gem - beats the heck out of going to LAX and boarding a bus or Amtrak. The DFW connection is smart - lots of traffic to Europe, lots of traffic to South of the Border. This is a smart move. BUT, doesn't seem like they are maximising their utilisation of the aircraft here. Arrives 740pm and departs out of SBA at 635am?
