    This is a fantastic terminal! Great food options, state of the art and clean facilities, and other features like an indoor kids' playground, yoga room, and AMPLE outlets! Cool red chairs, too!

    Take advantage of the yoga room, visit the SFO Airport museum, eat a veggie burger from The Plant, have some wine at one of the restaurants, and charge your phone/tablet at the many outlets offered.

    Best terminal I've been in so far in America. Clean, light and airy, great healthy food options and few queues. Having virgin America fly from here is the icing on top! (easily the best local carrier

    Pair the Alaskan salmon kale salad with a fine French wine & visit to the transcendental meditation center. If that's not your style, try a bagel at Peet's coffee.

    Virgin America is by far the best and most comfortable flight you can take in the continental US. I just experienced a flight from EWR to SFO and had the most perfect landing anyone could ask for.

    Getting to the airport early for your flight can lead to boredom. Keep yourself entertained by having a glass of wine. In addition, with all the power outlets, charge up your phone or laptop! :)

    The Priority Access line here routinely takes longer than the normal security line because they only have 1 person checking instead of 3 on the other side. So even with Priority Access, choose wisely.

    Generally VA is a fun airline to fly. On occasion you experience a flight attendant with attitude issues. Some planes are starting to show their age.
