    Get to domestic terminals on foot from BART. Walk toward international terminal and then follow the signs to Terminals 1 & 3.

    Security clearance is definitely the time to pay bills over the phone or make other long hold time related calls.

    If the pilot tries to park a United 757-200 at gate G99, advise him not to do so. It's not a great fit for the jet bridge.

    CLEAR + TSA Pre-Check on the way out and Global Entry on the way in for International travel is the fastest way through this airport.

    Security checkpoint process is one of the worst in the world. Lines are usually 1-3 hours long. Exact opposite of New York style speed. Terminal 3 is usually the worst.

    If in the United Domestic Terminal, Andale has good burritos...and when you say spicy they actually make it spicy! SoupCo isn't bad either, get the smoky split pea soup.

    Roomy Airport but don't like how their facilities/shops are spread out as you don't get easy access to the ones you want to reach

    if you need a quick nap or spiritual peace, the reflection room just right of the Bart entrance is perfect. making out there = discouraged but fun.

    I would avoid changing terminals on connecting flights if at all possible. I missed a connecting flight from Alaska to American because I had to go through security again.

    Get here at least 1&1/2 hours before your flight and make sure to check in online. SFO is known to have long security lines because TSA likes to funnel you like cattle and won't give you direction!
