Plane was full or nearly full with at least 129 pax, perhaps totally full. Pushback was 5 minutes late, taxi 8 minutes then takeoff to the east. Passed Loop 101, turned south, saw US60 Superstition Freeway and AZ87 Beeline Highway, east valley cities then turn west. There was a drink run and got cup of soda. I saw Colorado River and Blythe at 0:23. Peanuts were offered but declined. There were some bumps en route. I saw Chiriaco Summit and later Coachella Valley. Descent started 0:30 just past Coachella. Seatbelt sign stayed on whole flight. Went directly over PSP, saw Mt. San Jacinto and later San Jacinto/Hemet area followed by Perris, Canyon Lake, Lake Elsinore and Interstate 15. We crossed the Santa Ana Mountains into Orange County and I saw Irvine Lake and CA241 Toll Road. We landed toward the ocean, taxi was 3 minutes and we arrived 5 minutes late. First bag came out 17h40 and last bag at 17h43. I took shuttle home.
