Anyone know anything about airlines? I want to travel after school on Weds. from LAX, but all the flights are pretty much before 3:00 pm or red-eyes. Why wouldn't there be evening flights? I doubt I could take an earlier flight because I would have to skip school for the day, which wouldn't be good because I am already skipping school on Friday.

It is good that the later date gives us another month and a half of improving conditions regarding COVID, but having it during school instead of summer is a pain. Plus now we'll be competing with a football game!

It likely has to do with expected year by year travel in that particular month.

If the travel out of LAX towards Indiana is not high enough to fill the morning, evening and red eye flights they will generally cut the evening flights from the schedule as they are usually the lightest booked of the three times.

It’s a ~4 hour flight and Indiana is 3 hours ahead of LA time zone wise.

Airports are generally not handling arrivals between say midnight and 6 AM - doing so would mean they have to have staff on hand and most people wouldn’t want to arrive during those times so there would be little demand.

Hence flight schedules from LA to Indianapolis will tend to avoid leaving LA roughly between 5 PM and 11 PM.

I was finding similar difficulties finding flights for my brother and his family in California for our August vacation to Maryland. Nothing good in the later afternoon or evening.

I would avoid ontario if you can. I dont know what's been going on with them since covid, but either way they are notoriously expensive. Most of us up here find it cheaper to drive to and fly out of Detroit.

Assuming he meant Ontario. California.

Also, I suspect you'll find the same at nearly all western airports. Arrive before midnight local. Or after 6 am local, for the reasons stated above.

It would be a pain but you could fly to Chicago then drive to Indy via rental.

I doubt the timing would work, but on the off chance it does, you're welcome to carpool with me (I live in Chicago)
