The Hell That Is Los Angeles Now 40 Minutes Closer

Posted By on Mon, Oct 18, 2010 at 4:27 PM

Good news for the movers and shakers, those insufferable people who are always jetting off from ACV to points around the world: Starting in December, Horizon Air is going to offer direct flights both from and to beautiful Los Angeles!

This is indubitably an upgrade of sorts. Used to be, to get to Lipstick City one was forced to pass through the somewhat lesser glories of the greater Redding area first. No longer! The new arrangement preserves the Redding stopover for those who go in for that sort of thing, while also adding an option for the Eureka business traveler to hightail it straight to the nation's dream factory.

Read on. Seems like Redding gets screwed in this whole deal. Which is fine.

Horizon Air Upgrades Eureka Flights With More Nonstop Service to Los Angeles

Eureka - Starting Dec. 1, Horizon Air will change its Eureka flight schedule to operate more of its flights nonstop to Los Angeles.

Horizon has two roundtrips between Eureka and Los Angeles, and currently both southbound flights and one northbound flight make an intermediate stop in Redding. Effective with the new schedule, one of those southbound flights will become nonstop.

In Redding, Horizon will continue to offer a morning southbound nonstop and evening northbound nonstop, but it is eliminating the mid-morning northbound flight from Los Angeles that makes an intermediate stop in Eureka and the midday southbound nonstop.

"We're making these changes to reduce unprofitable flying and better match capacity with the current demand for service," said Dan Russo, Horizon's vice president of marketing and communications.

Here are the current and new schedules:
