    Pizza My Heart is a local favorite in SJ and is quick and a good way to get a slice on the go (gate 19). Le Boulanger is also a place to go for anything on fresh French influenced bread (gate 20).

    While not as richly featured as SFO, SJC offers ample parking, great central South Bay location and loads of domestic and international flights. When booking, price compare this, SFO and OAK!

    The ceiling art between gates 19/20 is uhmazeing! The 'e-cloud' @ 22/23 is RAD! The Baron Von Munchausen creation outside security is excellent! The aquarium @ 24/25 is cool too! Well done new SJC! I

    If your toddler needs some entertainment check out the audio-kinetic rolling ball sculpture at gate 2. Absolutely mesmerizing! Save the books, movies, and treats for the plane and take them here.

    Go to the diner right beside Starbucks because Starbucks doesn't have chairs and tables. While you are at it also try their breakfast if you are there before 10:00 AM

    Ahh~ What a way to travel. Make sure you remember to check in all liquids and firearms, and be prepared. Take off your shoes, belt, and make sure your laptop is out for security. Enjoy your flight!

    Tons of electrical outlets. Clean bathrooms. A slew of dining options. Some of the best tix prices from the Bay Area to #Hawaii. Nice substitute for #SFO.

    Skip by Starbucks and Peet's - there's an Illy espresso cafe down near gate 20. Best coffee you'll ever get at an airport. PRO-TIP: they keep a tip jar just behind the counter. :)

    This is the best airport in the Bay Area! They have free WiFi, it's never crowded, the staff is friendly, and even the TSA is courteous. This is the best airport, hands-down.
  • Artur R.
    Very convenient airport due to its size and great alternative to SFO. Enjoy the Dreamliner when flying from or to London on BA. Immigration lines can get long though.

    Wheelchairs available and friendly assistance to ladies bathroom, coffee queue & boarding gate. For those who can walk on the ramp to aircraft can get a TSA blue medical priority boarding.

    This place is awesome. No line at airline nor security last three times. Outlets on 1/5 armrests, no crowding around a pole. There's even a fish tank!

    My favorite airport and one of the newest airport terminal architectural designs in the US. Best part is the seats have plugs and USB ports to charge your gadgets.

    There is an illy coffee bar in Terminal B (accessible from Terminal A) that makes a great proscuitto, tomato and basil sandwich as well as having the best coffee in the airport.

    20 minutes from check in to the gate, multiple outlets and USB cords on the arms of rows of seats, and friendly security agents who crack jokes and dish out early morning compliments

    Be forewarned! SJC is still under construction, tho looking beautiful & like a real airport. The walk from gate to baggage claim/exit is a HAUL! It'll feel like you're walking for miles. Good cardio!

    If you're arriving and really have to go, but the bathrooms are packed, just take a few more steps and take the escalator down to baggage claim. Turn right and find a less crowded restroom. :-) whew!

    Nicer, easier, faster and overall cheaper alternative to the always delayed and somewhat crowded SFO. If you are flying into Silicon Valley my choice would be flying into SJC.
  • John K.
    Free wifi, and what has been done to renovate their terminal is awesome. Wide open, clean, efficient w/ plenty of eating options too.

    Lots of people with lots of first world problems. if you can afford to fly - you are better off than 95% of the world. The FREE wifi is slow when I am sitting in my massage chair.

    "Entertain us if you please, but please be gentle to the keys." I like the piano placed in the middle of the baggage claim and the people who play it.

    You have to take a shuttle to get to the rental car place. It's not clearly labeled where the shuttle picks you up, either. Just keep walking out from under the ground transpo sign.

    If you have $10, thirty minutes to spare, and no boyfriend, the massage chairs located throughout terminal B are a must.

    Large Stalls. As a user experience researcher, improvements on usability catch my interest. The bathrooms at SJC are a perfect example of a better user experience.

    If you have a Priority Pass, the Lounge is one of the best in North America. Attentive staff and great views.

    No more American Airlines Admiral's Club. The Club at SJC is the only lounge in the airport. It's really nice! $35/person to get in unless you have a Priority Pass, one of the perks of AmEx Platinum.

    Starbucks near Gate 13 so don't buy coffee outside!! And don't forget your sharpie keychain stuffs, very strict & no way to leave at airport/airline and claim it when you get back.

    Traveling with Southwest? Check out the e-cloud: 1000s of switchable glass squares suspended from the ceiling that change from opaque to transparent w/the transmission of real-time weather data!
