I fly between LAX and San Diego fairly often. There are two airlines
that offer flights at least every hour throughout the day. During
some periods the flights are every half hour. You can generally
connect in LAX without going through security again (unless arriving
into LAX on an international flight).
It doesn't really work to apply typical logic to airline fares. That
is, you can't predict a fare based on distance or number of
connections. While it can be expensive to purchase a separate ticket
between SAN and LAX, this is rarely done. Usually a the fare is from
point A to SAN and back. In some cases it is slightly more than from
point A to LAX and back, but often it is less. Sometimes it is a lot
less. I'd be willing to believe that there are cases where it is a
lot more, but I haven't personally seen them.
I'm a great believer in the train between SAN and LA, by the way.
I've taken it a number of times and always prefer it to driving.
Note that for a slight extra charge you can get an upgrade to 'custom
class' where you get a larger seat, a power outlet, and something
called a snack. There are terrific views of the pacific ocean and
beaches during the latter half of the trip, and for much of it the
train is right on the sand.
The immigration checkpoint seems to be dormant for a year or so now.
The electronic pass lanes have been turned off, the signs warning you
to be prepared to stop have been removed, the officers standing in
the lanes inspecting cars are gone. The main structure is still
there, and there are still border patrol cars at the sides, but
