JetBlue's $4 Fare Sells Out

LONG BEACH (CBS) — Who needs the 405 Freeway when you have JetBlue?

The airliner's #OverThe405 program, offering $4 one-way flights, literally over Carmageddon, between Burbank's Bob Hope International Airport and Long Beach Airport on July 16, sold out in a matter of hours.

The Saturday $4 fare from the valley to the beach went on sale Wednesday and sold out in three hours.

The sold out 35 minute flights from Burbank to Long Beach will depart at 12:20 p.m. or 6:35 p.m. on Saturday. Quick trips from Long Beach will take off at 1:50 p.m. or 7:55 p.m.

For those who are looking to get away from the Carmageddon madness altogether, JetBlue is still offering a 40.5 percent discount on the airfare of any vacation to Las Vegas from Burbank or Long Beach, and an additional $40.50 off their entire trip.
