Business travel is where the money is, and a route needs to be consistent and year round to earn business traffic. Leisure pax will fly seasonal routes, but are lower margin.

There is some business traffic on that route, Bantrel/Bechtel and Chevron for instance.

I'm just grateful to have SNA back, LAX was a nightmare before it became a permanent construction site. I think that route last operated seasonally in 2012?

I travel to both SF and LA for work. In southern California, I'd rather fly into any airport other than LAX!

I think we should start an overall WestJet Network Thread. Where any changes, new routes, ect can be discussed.
