As a multi-year UA 1K living in the East Bay, I think I have a right to be bitter. I can't begin to tally up the hours of my life wasted either waiting for mainline aircraft to arrive, or being stuck at IAH waiting for a takeoff slot, even at 9:30 AM on a day when there is no precipitation. However, I think you may have missed the point. Currently, I'm travelling from OAK domestically on WN.

Once relocated, I will have my choice of DFW or IAH as close-in, either connections from AUS or a ~3 hour drive to catch a direct TATL, and with LH flying non-stop to FRA, that may not be necessary. If connecting say to a TPAC, I'll choose SEA, LAX, or even DEN, etc. Sure, any airport can have delays on any given day, but SFO is king of the hill, even when it's just "low clouds".

Cheers.
