But, have you looked into the possibility of using Long Beach Airport? That would put you right at the 605 and ready to head north - without all of the falderal attached with having to deal with the 405, 22, 5, 710, 605 bullpucky...
Long Beach Airport does not have non-stop service to/from Denver on any airline.

What about Burbank? Does Southwest fly from Denver to Burbank? That would be the easiest drive to go from Burbank to Industry.

Check into Ontario Airport as well. The 10 Fwy is a real bee-yotch at certain times, but anything would be better than having to deal with LAX - even considering the possibility of having to change planes somewhere! (I effen hate LAX - can you tell?) ;-}

The OP stated in her original post that Ontario does not have any options that would work for her husband's situation. See below.

I guess I missed that. Thanks, D.

As I stated regarding Long Beach - even if one has to change planes somewhere, it's still preferable to dealing with LAX, IMO...

I have to smile when I read the title: which everone is longer, the other is shorter. Now, I know what you mean: I wouls still think John Wayne would be the best commute.

No worries. I'm with you regarding Long Beach Airport. MUCH better alternative to LAX, which I despise with a passion.

Its just not practical for a business traveler who is flying often to connect. Plus, even connecting service is very bad between Denver and Long Beach. JetBlue cannot to it as their flights to Denver only go to Boston and New York (doesn't make sense to fly east when your destination is west).
Alaska Airlines sends you at least two hours out of the way to Seattle.
Delta only offers connections through Salt Lake City and from Salt Lake there are just 3 flights per day to Long Beach. Total trip time is 4.5 to 6 hours with connectiom vs 2.5 hours nonstop to another So Cal Airport.
US Airways connects through Phoenix, but only offers two flights per day.

When LAX and John Wayne havr nearly hourly non stop service fro
Denver with United, Southwest, and Frontier, Long Beach is just not competitive. Especially for a frequent flier than just wants to be done with the flight.

Oh, I agree, Coo77. Like I said earlier, SNA all the way! The time and aggravation a passenger will save getting into and out of SNA - as compared to the clusterfrak that is LAX - will more than make up for a bit longer commute.

SNA in every way. You can get from the gate to a rental car in 5 minutes and be out of the airport 10 minutes after your plane lands.

LAX would be 45min to an hour, never worth it.

DEN-SNA has plenty of flight options. Go John Wayne.
