Two most memorable flights were a long time ago. PSA LA to SF, one hour flight and they upgraded me to First Class for the hell of it. Other was LA to Seattle with only four passengers on the entire plane. Great flight. Pretty sure it'd have been cancelled these days.
A few years ago, I had a house in SoCal and one in Scottsdale. Drove mostly, but tested it a couple times. Almost 400 mi exactly. Driving door to door was 5:45-6 hours. Door to door flying saved a whole 10-15 minutes.
