    Southwest terminal is smooth sailing in the morning, whereas you'll want to allow some time for any other airline.

    Go to the Starbucks at gate 11, it's less ratchet... Well considering, it is Oakland. This airports always a ghost town for a reason.

    The staff at the security are rude and unhelpful. Go to SFO or SJC instead.

    @Essie nail polish vending machine in Terminal 2 (By @SouthwestAir) is very cool. Same price as stores; great color selection. Perfect for flight delays!

    Coconut water and a kind bar to make up for the wine and margarita at PDX

    2 immigration officers for 127 mexicans = longest line ever.

    A good alternative to SFO if the flights are cheaper.

    Free wifi is only good for first 45 minutes. Then you have to pay.

    If your gonna stay overnight at the airport, better make sure you grab a bench seat before 10pm. There is only a few and they fill up fast. Sleeping there is fine. Sandwich $8 water bottle $3

    It's not the nicest airport, and it's not the most convenient to get to, but it totally makes up for it by almost never having lines at security.

    Flying out of busy Terminal 2 (Southwest)? Try Terminal 1 security line and just walk over.

    Ray Hartjen · January 30

    Invest in TSA Pre ✅ for $85. You will speed through the security line in five minutes, get to leave your shoes on and your laptop in your bag.

    Don't get stuck here overnight! They will kick you out to the ticket counters. There are no good places to rest or sleep. Plus, this airport is FILTHY by the end of the day!!

    Nice small airport, but need to work on the flow through security.

  • Don D.

    Decent airport. Baggage return slow! Lengthy wait! Definitely room for improvement. However, I would not hesitate to fly Oakland again. One of the nations better airports to travel

    If you are sitting on the aisle, don't buckle up until everyone is seated.

  • Leah B.

    Grab some Peet's coffee in terminal 2 (so much better than Starbucks). Security was also very quick. Power stations all over the place. Love it.

    Really hate this airport. It is dirty and smells. Limited options for food. One place had music so loud it was echoing throughout the gate. Get me out of here and I am not coming back.

    Michael Schneider · November 11, 2014
  • Don D.

    No TSA Pre-chek? Whazzup whit dat???!?? OMGG poor little ol lady had NO idea what was going on! Didn't wanna take off her shoes! I don't blame her! NOT much of a security threat from her! SLOW!!

    Don Dibert · November 11, 2014
  • Brian S.

    Flight in the high 20's to low 30's gates? Stop by the airport outpost of Fenton's creamery, a true Oakland original.

    Brian Strauss · November 11, 2014
  • Brian I.

    Cool airport w/great wifi and comfy! Guard your outlets though they're prime real estate

    Very easy to get in and out of. Baggage retrieval is generally swift. Great weather prevents delays. Huge Southwest hub. Wish it was better served by more airlines

    Brian Strauss · October 15, 2014
  • Justin S.

    The shortest walk from economy parking of any airport ever.

    Justin Sullivan · October 13, 2014
  • DJ Kyu

    If the security line in the Terminal 2 (Southwest Airlines) building is too long, it may be worth it to walk to Terminal 1 and do security there since the airport connects all gates in the back.
