Flights From Austin to Los Angeles

For those looking to save a few bucks when traveling, it's worth booking an airline that flies nonstop from Austin to L.A. I know the flight may seem like the least expensive option, but that's because the prices are jacked up so high because of the lack of direct competition. By booking a different airline, you can save up to $450 per ticket. Stay tuned for our upcoming story on the strategy to avoiding expensive airline prices.

Service

If you’re taking a rideshare service from Los Angeles Airport, you’ll need to meet your ride at the LAX-it parking lot located near Terminal 1. You can walk or take the free shuttle bus to the LAX-it lot, where your Taxi, Lyft, Opoli or Uber driver will be waiting for you.

There are three parking options for passengers flying out of the main terminal of the Austin Airport. At about $8 per day, the Economy Parking lot is the cheapest option; this lot is connected to the terminal by a free shuttle bus service. Parking in the Blue Garage only costs a little more (it’s about $10 per day), but you’re just a short walk from the main terminal. The Red Garage is the most expensive option at about $20 per day, but this parking lot provides direct access to the airline check-in counters.

The LAX FlyAway bus provides nonstop service from the airport to LA’s Union Station. This bus runs every 30min and only costs about $9.75 one way (kids 5 and under can ride free with an adult). If you’re planning to ride the Metro into LA, you can take the airport’s free “G” shuttle bus to the Aviation / LAX Station, where you can pick up a C Line train to your destination in the city.

Cons: "My first flight to Alaska was delayed and my flight leaving was cancelled completely. I called customer service and was told I would be given a refund for all the trouble my cancelled flight was causing making me late for work and my ride being unable to pick me up at the new landing time. I never received a refund and my rebooked flight got cancelled. I almost didn't get home on that flight either, but the customer service agent found me a seat. I never received a refund and I missed out on pay at work. I never want to fly Alaska again!"

Cons: "I Loved everything, keep up the excellent work!!!! i felt bad because some travelers on board must be tired or something, but as I was coming out I observed that all the flight personell was so kind and even came out and thanked everyone for boarding, and I felt so bad for the crew, because everyone does an outstanding work, but I feel that some were ignored, please know that even though other fellow passangers are not appreciative and quite disrespectful, your service is highly valued and apreciated and I will definetely fly Alaska Airlines again!!"

Cons: "TSA held me up with a 30 minute bag check so I arrived for an 11:30 AM flight at 11:16 AM. I was told that because I was a minute late they wouldn't let me on even though the plane was still in the runway and connected to the terminal. I asked to speak to a supervisor and the agent disappeared for 10 minutes while the plane took off. I then went to go speak to a customer service agent who wouldn't even look at me while I spoke. She actually started listening to and talking with another agent while I was talking to her. Then when I was finished, she started arguing with me until another agent said "he's not worth it." JetBlue just lost my business."

Cons: "Was not able to check in online. Was not able to select my seat online. I was told I would be able to do both of these things. Spent 30 minutes trying to find a number to someone at Delta to check in & select seat. I was in Australia & all Delta offices were closed because it was Sunday. Although I had an internationally calling plan, no calls to Delta US would go through. finally found someone through a back channel that would help me. We boarded an hour late, and staff would not answer any of our questions about what was going on or how late we would arrive (they sped up the fight so that we landed on time). Flight ran out of drinking WATER after the first service. Half of our section (Economy Plus) was skipped for snacks. An unruly child was allowed to scream for almost the entire flight & was running up & down the aisles. NOTHING was said to the parents by staff members. Was absolutely the worst behaving child with who I've had to fly."

Cons: "Everything that could have gone wrong with my flights, went wrong. On my way from LA to Raleigh (through Atlanta), I was affected by the weather conditions at Atlanta. I understand that the weather is beyond Delta's scope of control, but customer service is not. I had to wait in line at LAX for 8 hours to even get information on what had happened, and what solutions were available. The customer service call center was collapsed, and at the airport counters at one point there was ONLY ONE DELTA REPRESENTATIVE serving a line of more than 100 upset customers. This IS Delta's fault, and it is unacceptable. This definitely was under Delta's control, but in order to save a few dollars in overtime for emergency staff Delta was willing to let its customers make terribly long lines, miss their flights, their connections and consequently their commitments. It is disappointing to observe how Delta believes that a few dollars saved on extra staff and emergency measures can offset the irreparable long term damage to its business due to upset customers. My way back from Raleigh to Los Angeles was also a disaster. Without any type of explanation and nothing more than an email announcing the change, the nonstop flight I bought was replaced by a 1-stop flight with connection in Atlanta. This was NOT THE PRODUCT I PURCHASED. There is a reason I paid a premium for a nonstop flight, and Delta did not hesitate in providing me with a less valuable product without any explanation or refund. Delta prioritizes its operational metrics - an obsession to fill and overbook its capacity - over its customers' experience, one again under the foolish belief that short term savings in any way offset the long term damage of disappointed and alienated customers. I will NEVER FLY DELTA AGAIN. I will do whatever I can to transmit my experience to everyone I know. At a time where major airline carriers are in the spotlight due to abusive practices (i.e. the United passenger case), I still find hope in knowing that alternatives such as Southwest still put their customers first, over the ethereal benefits that a few-dollar savings in operational expenses can provide."

Fare

Hacker Fares allow you to combine one-way tickets in order to save you money over a traditional round-trip ticket. You could then fly to Los Angeles with an airline and back to Austin with another airline.

Cons: "Spirit will charge you extra for almost anything imaginable. There is no free carry on luggage except a small personal item. No free printing of boarding passes at the airport. Prepare to be nickel and dimed for anything extra. Spirit fares are ok but other airlines can offer fares just as cheap or even cheaper if you are flexible with the date and time. None of the Spirit planes I've ever been on have charging outlets or entertainment screens which are becoming standard comforts on most other airlines. Not to mention, Spirit gave me hassle for using an e-boarding pass. Really, Spirit? All other major airlines accept electronic boarding passes via mobile phone. Requiring printed boarding passes is so outdated. I would choose any other airline than Spirit if at all possible."
