JetBlue offers $4 L.A.-to-L.A. flights for Carmageddon

Los Angeles is quaking in fear of "Carmageddon " this weekend, when 10 miles of heavily-populated Route 405 will be shut down. But never fear, Angelenos ... you won't have to spend even a single weekend not pumping out tons of carbon! JetBlue will let you fly from Burbank (just north of L.A.) to Long Beach (just south of L.A.) for only $4 . The 20-minute flight lets you safely bypass the closed-off part of 405. You may then be miles from your destination, since you're taking a 35-mile flight to avoid a 10-mile stretch of freeway ... but when have L.A. residents balked at driving a few miles? It's when you ask them to NOT drive a few miles that they start to freak out. The JetBlue offer is only available on Saturday, though. What to do on Sunday, when 405 is still closed? Maybe take a long drive up to Santa Barbara, just to clear your head.
