I want to go through SFO video

Is it my imagination or is this video depicting an Alaska flight landing at LAX (look at the inbound airplane carefully). The terminal reminds me of Terminal 3 at LAX.

We don't call it "T3rdWorld" for nothing.

That being said, SFO's problem is it turns into the Hotel California when a marine layer comes in: you can check in any time you'd like, but you can never leave...

I think it's a little unfair to compare LAX T3 with SFO's Intl terminal. There are a few parts of SFO that look pretty shabby as well.

If you think T3 is bad, go hang out at EWR's A terminal some time.

At least T3 has what's arguably the nicest Boardroom in the system, a mere few steps from all the gates.

SFO - I can be in and out of there in minutes (on the ground). However, taking BART is taking your life in your hands!

Actually the "bad" airport is SFO. If you look carefully at the line for security, you can just make out the "gates 20-32" sign which of course are the AS gates.
