Claremont students, I bring awful news. The great and gloriously close Ontario Airport has fallen on hard times, prompting cut backs and depression in at least one 5-C student, yours truly.
For the late travelers in the group, you have been warned. Here is the article in the Los Angeles Times.
Come September, ExpressJet will no longer operate at Ontario, becoming one of the latest casualties of high fuel costs and a souring economy, which have grounded airline service across the country. Other domestic airlines, such as United, Delta, Southwest and JetBlue Airways have slashed or eliminated service at Ontario as well.How much do I hate LAX? Oh, let me count the ways...
As a result, no other airport in Southern California has been hit as hard by the aviation fuel crisis and downturn as Ontario. It is bracing for a 34% drop in flights from last fall's numbers, irking travelers and frustrating promises by politicians to shift some service away from congested Los Angeles International Airport.
But not as much as I hate the shuttle services. I had one guy pick me up at the end of the school year three hours late.
