Flight Help!

Sun Aug 08, 2004 12:23 pm

I will be starting school soon and as will my sister. She is going to go to UCI (University California Irvine) and there is this thing called Welcome Week. It happens to fall on a weekday and the first day of beginning Finals at my school. B/c of this I will not drive down with my parent(s) and will get the chance to fly!

It's September 20th and 21st. I wanted to know what airlines would serve the best there (UA? UAX?) and at what times and what airport. This is Irvine, Ca so I don't think there are airports near there.

Thanks for all of the help!

SNA would be the closest airport; and It looks from SFO to SNA HP is the cheapest but thats connecting in PHX, other than that UA is your best bet around 320.00 roundtrip. . Or if you perfer OAK It would be way cheaper on UA its around 150.00 but then again you connect in LAX soo ~ If you want to go AA OAK - SNA they have a non-stop that is the same price. although I dont know if it is a codeshare or not its just labled AA non-stop .

The closest airport is John Wayne, but for an easier flight, go through LAX.

I dunno what the fares are like now but I got a nice flight from OAK-SNA for way below $200.00 or so. Maybe check them out as well.

Please take WN from OAK-SNA or LAX. It will be more expensive to SNA, I think because of restrictions and landing fees and such, but SNA is only 5 miles from UCI. LAX is about 45 miles from UCI. I also go to UCI, and will be a senior in the fall. Welcome week isn't anything special, unless you want to help your sister move in. I guess the only good reason for you to come down is so you can fly! Big grin
