    Always good to come here if you want to catch a flight to someplace other than San Francisco, CA.

    Contrary to intuition, Air Canada is in the domestic terminal (3). Apparently, SFO believes that Canada is indeed the 51st state.

    If your gate is between 20 to 38, you have to try out Max's eatz and fresh bakery. Usually I hate airport food, but their pastrami Rubens is very delicious.

    They told me to take the shuttle, no walkable way to BART so of course I miss the train I was sprinting over to make. Thanks a lot SFO

    If you're getting picked up at passenger pick up, make sure to go down one level (where baggage claim is located). If you go straight outside after arrival, you'll be at the drop off level.

    On an International flight? Bring a small gift for the chief purser on your flight as a way to say thank you.

    TSA PreCheck is now available in T2 and T3. You must be invited by your airline or a member of a trusted traveler program like Global Entry.

    Pay attention to signs - baggage isn't always where you assume it'll be if you're getting picked up!

    Takes solid 30 minutes to go from Rental Car Center to Terminal 1 on the Airtrain. Make sure you allow enough time.

    Try to get here at LEAST 2.5 hours early. The lines are always long here no matter the day. (if they're short, you're just lucky!)

    Super efficient Delta security triage for regular, SkyPriority, PreCheck, and CLEAR. LAX and JFK could learn some lessons.

    If you are going to take the BART/Caltrain take the blue air train and get down at the international terminal instead of the BART stop. It's a shortcut to the BART station.

    This airport sucks. It's behind the times with security check-ins, and profiling. The entire airport, from TSA to airline personnel are rude and not forth coming with info. TIP: Don't fly out if SFO.

    Grab a cubicle if you're flight is delayed. There's outlets and lots of space to get work done.

    They finally have TSA Pre in the Delta terminal so feel free to get here 45 mins before your can probably even pull off 30.

    When choosing your travel outfit, less is more. Avoid wearing clothing, jewelry or other accessories that contain metal when traveling to cut your time barefoot in the security line.

    If you're in a rush at any terminal and the security lines are hella long, march over to International Terminal A and tell them the security guards told you to go this way, to catch your flight.

    PROTIP: If there's a fly hot TSA standing on the other side of the body scanner, opt for the pat-down (scanner is optional)
