    Click on the small "Parking Offers" link in the left bar of the OAK website to get up to $8 off daily parking. Must print coupon!

    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.

    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.

    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!!
