Interestingly I don't think Southwest is as cheap as it used to be. Maybe not, but their prices in California are pretty good. It is not hard to find $50-60 o/w fares LAX-SFO. That is with two free bags and at primary airports. That is hard to compete with $30 bags and (possibly) secondary airports.
