    Inaugural Flight
    Despite a 45-minute drive to Orange County's John Wayne Airport (SNA) from Los Angeles, the short line to check in at WestJet and go through security probably made the overall travel time to get to the gate less than it would have been to fight the lines that Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) has become known for. Checking in with us was Spencer the horse--a real live horse brought in from Alberta's Rancher Six Resort to add to the hoopla of introducing the new flight route. At the gate, the inaugural WestJet flight from Calgary to Orange County arrived, with passenger after passenger deplaning wearing Mickey Mouse hats. They were greeted by the Peanuts characters (Snoopy and Charlie Brown), highlighting the famous Anaheim amusement parks Disneyland and Knotts Berry Farm, which are bound to attract Calgarian families to the new direct route. The fares are family-friendly, too, starting at US$159 each way. As our flight left the gate, WestJet representatives gathered on the tarmac along with Harry the Horse (the Calgary Stampede's mascot) to wave us adieu. The flight took just over three and a half hours--an easy jaunt to the city known as the gateway to the Canadian Rocky Mountain.
