Red eye flights? - July 6th 2013, 03:21 AM

At least I think that's what they're called?

Anyway, I'm planning on going to a concert on September 22nd with my mother and two of my friends. (It's still up for debate if my mother is actually attending the concert; more on that later.) Here's the problem: I live in suburban Phoenix and the concert is in San Diego. I'm still in high school, as are the two friends I'm taking. My mother is also attending community college, and we're not sure how her schedule will look, i.e., will she even be able to go with us without missing class.
The concert is on a Sunday. Which means we'll need a red-eye flight to get home in time for us to get home in time for sleep and school. We can't get to the airport any earlier than 11 p.m.
Am I out of my mind? Do flights ever leave past that? I've looked on Southwest, Delta, US Airways and American Airlines. Neither have any flights leaving past 8 pm on Sunday. But yet, Google and Yahoo! Answers are telling me that yes, those airlines do run red-eye flights. Theoretically, I could just, like, call the airlines and ask them, but severe anxiety prevents me from doing so. It's up to me to organize this; my mother has neither the time nor the money to help me with this. The only reason she'd have to go with us is because we're all under 18. (I'm 16, the two friends are both 17.)
Does anyone know if Southwest (preferably, although I suppose other airlines if they are offering them) offers red-eye flights? Are they cheaper or more expensive than regular flights?

Also, I know this is unrelated, but I don't wanna have to post a whole other thread: the concert is at Valley View Casino Center in San Diego. Since my friends and I are all under 18, let alone 21, would they even let us in the venue without an adult? I know we won't be allowed to drink or go in the casino, but would they let us in the venue?

I know most of my questions could be answered with such a simple phone call, but my anxiety won't let me. And besides, I think I might get faster [and nicer] answers from you guys. Any and all input is greatly appreciated.

From what research I've done I'm not finding any red eye flights, so that might be a problem. Also as far as getting into the venue, as long as you stay away from the casino/bar area I don't see that as an issue. Sorry I wasn't that much help but at least there's a bit to go on!

I don't think you'd have enough time to fly back and get some sleep before school. The flight would probably be an hour or two, but you also have to account for going through security and the drive to and from the airport.
As far as I know, red eye flights are the same price as regular ones, however they aren't always available. I also looked up the venue and I can't find anything about needing to be a certain age.

And here you are living, despite it all.

Flights from L.A. to Phoenix and vice versa are only about an hour. I know this from experience. They're listed as like 1h 20m, 1h 30m, but the four times I've done it, it's taken between 45 mins to an hour. I'll keep looking on Southwest's website, but if there's no way I can get around calling and asking, then I'll just have to do that. Thanks for the input.

When is the concert? Figure it may not start at least 30 minutes if not more later than it is supposed to. Also, traffic may be horrible trying to leave the casino. You should plan accordingly.
