As an example booking, I found seats on an early morning flight departing San Jose SJC on Tuesday, March 19, returning from Orange County SNA on an evening flight, Wednesday, March 20. That's two full days in SoCal for only $78 roundtrip, which sure beats the 6-9 hour drive each way depending on traffic.
