    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!

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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! :\

    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.
  • Rexbabyandkids P.
    A good entry exit point when visiting Los Angeles area, very near Glendale and Pasadena. An airport that is not busy. Easy travels out of and going into this airport.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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

    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👍🏻

    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.

    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.

    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.
