I have been to 15 of the 25 on the list, although some of them only a single time. Have flown through Phoenix, Denver, Vegas, Houston, St. Louis, Chicago (Midway and O'Hare), Minneapolis, Detroit, San Diego, and Los Angeles at various times to get back and forth from San Francisco. Never had a problem in Phoenix and I always found stuff to do when I've had longer layovers there.
Denver has caused me some delays because of snowstorms. I try to never use Chicago, Minneapolis, or Denver in winter months and prefer to connect through Houston and Phoenix to go west. Also, I try to avoid ORD at all cost (they never give you enough connection time!), but using Southwest through MDW has been ok for me so far. Can't wait until Southwest adds another destination from Des Moines that makes travel to the west more convenient, like Denver, Phoenix, or Las Vegas.
I have always liked SFO, but there can be an awful lot of delays. Have encountered more problems with arrivals than departures, usually because of the marine layer that won't clear out or stormy winter weather in the area makes it impossible for them to use both parallel runways at the same time as they can when it's clear. Oakland, in spite of the fact that you can see it from SFO, has fewer issues with weather delays and it sometimes makes a good alternative destination.
This isn't completely related to that, but it's close enough: in July, I flew from Kansas City to San Francisco through San Diego on Southwest. I had only 25 minutes of connecting time between flights. My connecting gate was right there when I got off, but saw my flight was delayed three hours because of thunderstorms that had disrupted flights all over the west. The other two flights for SFO were also severely delayed. I saw on the board that all the Oakland flights were on time. I asked to be put on standby for the next OAK flight that was leaving in half an hour. Fortunately, I was the 1st standby passenger called, got on the flight to Oakland, took BART around the Bay to SFO where I rented my car and checked into my hotel. After all that, I was still almost two hours ahead of where I would have been if I had chosen to wait for my original plane.
The artist is clearly a Nazi. I mean, come on - the world turning its weapons over to the Germans? When did that ever work out well?Quote:
All of the children of the world bring in the weapons from their country, handing them to a German boy. The gas mask man from the previous scene is now dead, two doves perched on his body. All of the children appear to be relieved. The deeper metaphor is the return to peace, a rebirth; there will be no more need for weapons in the new world. Oh great, my flight just got delayed for, lemme’ see here, All of Eternity.
DFW is my favorite airport that I've been too. Very modern, very clean. Was last there about 4 years ago. O'Hare is O'Hare--probably the airport everyone has been to the most. Spent a while in customs after returning from a trip overseas in June but it wasn't over-the-top long. Spent a night in LaGuardia a few years back and it sucked, but spending the night in any airport is gonna suck. St. Louis isn't the greatest. Took a flight out of LAX last summer at 4 in the morning and was surprised with how busy it was. There probably isn't a time when it's not busy. Flew from there to Denver, which was nice but I was only there for like 30 min. Looked cool because it was surrounded by mountains though.
Been to all but 2. I hate DSM the most. The out-of-place British computerized PA announcer is the cherry on top.
All three to me look the same. junky and non-descript
