    Chezz Burger Chezz Burger between gates 5 & 6 is a "hidden" gem. The prices are reasonable & the portions are large. But most importantly, its good. Here is a Turkey Burger, no onions. $5.99.

    Most amazing airport in la! No lines, no traffic and no waiting! Security is a breeze and everyone is super friendly and accommodating! Definitely worth the extra cost of flying in and out of here!

    One of the best 'big' airports! Generally no lines at the counters, and security is a breeze. Very friendly TSA agents, heads above others. No scanners are a pleasure, without sacrificing security.

    Love this little airport that could. Lines if they exist are short (especially since there is now TSA Precheck for those of you that have it). So enjoy a meal at The Lunch Box. It's not helLAX.

    SO much better than LAX! Smaller yet less crowded. Get to your gate faster. When flying Southwest they usually don't weigh bags when checking in. SO worth the extra $ to avoid the headache of LAX!

    Bring your own 5 hour energy or red bull if that's what you live on- they don't have it here! Easy to get in and out of as far as airports. Great alternative to LAX in my humble opinion.

    You can get in and out of LA through this smaller airport, and you can also get some stuff done while you're there on the complementary free wi-fi!

    My favorite LA airport. Love being able to exit the plane from the back & you're right outside, old-school style. But if you fly in from NY, you have the longest walk to baggage claim/exit.

    This is the best airport to fly out of if you are in the Glendale/Burbank area. You practically walk onto the plane from the airport entrance. Tiniest and speediest airport ever.

    Bon Hope is the best airport to fly out of for short distance trips out of LA. There is a seasonal flight to NYC on JetBlue, also. Totally worth the extra money to skip the hassle!

    Between long beach airport and here you can't go wrong! Free wifi and when you walk onto the plane you feel like a rockstar! Open seating too! Breakfast burritos are like 15 dollars each though! :\

    Still uses the "Air Stairs" and not the "Jet Ways" ... but nice small airport easy and quick to get in and out of. If you are going to the San Fernando valley area, best to use BUR and not LAX.

    Really great experience. When you go through security make sure you follow your carry on all the way through the X-ray machine or they will snap at you

    If you have any early morning flight, security doesn't open until 5:30am. You can use any kiosk to check in, they have all of the airline carriers on every kiosk.

    It's got hometown feel and you avoid the hassle of LAX in and out. Being from Chicago I can become aghast at the lack of public transit in/around LA. this solves some of the problem👍🏻

    A very convenient "relief" for LAX. Great for domestic flights. If flying international you might have to make an extra stop and it might cost a few extra.

    Smaller airport, but that's the best part! In and out real quick. And they don't use jetways, I felt so cool coming out the plane using the ol' fashion stairs.

    Love this airport! Short lines and never over-crowded. Planes board old school style from staircases, which is a hassle for luggage but great for quick boarding from both the front and back.

    Smaller airport uses front & rear ramps, fewer baggage carousels, but major bottleneck at pick-up/drop-off. Definitely route here if handy for more streamlined trip

    Easiest and best airport in the county. I've never experienced really long TSA lines or a long wait for my bags at the baggage claim. There are a few dining options (bar, burger stand) but that's it.

    Just like everything else in so Cal, people think they are experts when they are not...so the bunny slope is often faster than the black diamond!

    The valet is $20 a day, worth it if you don't want to deal with the shuttles. They'll also wash your car and have it ready for you when you land, for $27 more.

    Avoid the lines! If flying Southwest with two or less bags go Right past southwest ticket counter towards the gate and there are two small kiosks which you can get your boarding pass from.

    No need to arrive to early. Check in and security is a breeze. Make sure to wear slide on shoes for easy security scanning.

    Don't pay at the charging stations. There are outlets at A5 (high up on the wall, so tricky to find). And outlets under the pay phones. Happy device charging!

    Very laid back airport - plus they pipe in the best '80s music in the overhead speakers. Hardly ever a TSA line too!

    If you're on Southwest, planes board from front and back stairs. Take the back set, walk through the plane to the front. Beats waiting for folks trying to pick a seat and blocking the aisles.

    No wall sockets to charge your devices in all of terminal A. Compare this with plug points in EACH seat in San Jose!! So 20th century!!

    The little airport that could! Unless you are just in an unusually unlucky moment, hardly ever any lines, so you can make that flight with the last minute dash.

    You can get off the plane from the front or the back, so sitting towards the back will definitely get you off the plane faster.

    Park in the structure instead of valet. It's $30/day but it's covered and you can get in and out quicker if you prepay your ticket at the terminal. Odd how it costs more than LAX.

    Best Airport! They board and deplane from both ends of the plane. Feel free to sit towards the back flying into Burbank for a quick unload.

    10 minutes getting thru security. Full body scans. Didn't have to wait 20 extra min for them to pat down my man because of his hip replacements. If you have hardware inside ya always go for the scan

    Very small airport. I almost forgot I was near Los ANgeles while in the airport, but it was pretty decent. No great food restaurants to choose from so make sure you eat before you get here.

    To take the free shuttle to North Hollywood Red/Orange Line, go to the Shuttles & Hotel island and tell the Super Shuttle agent you're going to North Hollywood Metro station.

    The bar at terminal 6 is usually less crowded, and you can order ChezBurger from there without waiting in line (very good burgers!).

    You may want to grab a bench and one of the many electrical outlets before security screening. Theyre are practically no outlets in the gate area.

    Free wifi, Calm environment. Nice, just not many outlets by the seats, you may just be standing up by the charging station.

    If you're hungry, you have Starbucks, McDondald's and Panda Express down the road. But if you're thirsty, you have Starbucks, McDondald's and Panda Express down the road.

    Better coming here than LAX for regional flights and also very retro in design as well.

    Love this airport. Park next door at the Starbucks (Robek's or whatever food you desire) instead of driving around in circles for a pickup.
