Feb 21, 2020

Very friendly staff

Feb 21, 2020

On second leg, we were able to change seats when we checked in st counter so we could sit together. It would be great if after first class and business class, Delta would hoard window seat passengers, then center seat passengers, then aisle seat passengers, not enough room to be able to stand in aisle when you have to get In and out to let window people, then center people in!!!

Feb 21, 2020

Very friendly, extra helpful staff on plane

Feb 17, 2020

Great air fare price.

Feb 16, 2020

I had forgotten my coat at a concourse cafe, and we were about the last to board. He told me exactly how much time I had to run back and get it, and told the agent at the next gate to expect me back so I didn't panic when the jetway door was closed. Employee of the month!

Feb 15, 2020

My baggage went on wrong flight.

Places to visit in San Francisco

With a multitude of renowned attractions in San Francisco, it'd be sensible to take some comfy footwear. First and foremost on your list should be an outing to Lombard Street, and Pier 39. After that, you might want to crank up the pace a notch as you shouldn't leave without stopping by University of San Francisco, and Palace of Fine Arts.

Serious sightseers should check out Westfield San Francisco Centre, and San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. Need more things to see in this bustling city? TransAmerica Pyramid, and Asian Art Museum of San Francisco will keep you busy.

Add a taste of the arts to your vacation by attending a play at Orpheum Theater. Like some more options? San Francisco City Hall will definitely be of interest to visitors fascinated by the history of the area. This civic building is well worth taking the time to see. But that's not all. You can't miss out on attending a concert at Bill Graham Civic Auditorium! Don't forget to buy your tickets in advance.

How to get through airport security fast when traveling to San Francisco

If you like the idea of spending more time at the airport bar and less time moving through security on your way to San Francisco, follow these practical tips:

  • Keep your boarding pass and travel ID somewhere handy. They'll be the first things you'll be told to produce by airport security personnel.
  • It's helpful to know that belts with metal buckles can set off the body scanner's alarms. If you're wearing one, you may be told to place it in a tray before continuing.
  • Everyday electronics such as laptops, tablets and phones are always put through the X-ray machine separately. Make sure they're within easy reach.
  • When it comes to flying with liquids or gels, each passenger is permitted a quart-sized clear zip-lock bag to store containers no larger than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters).
  • Undo your shoelaces in preparation for entering the body scanner. Depending on what sort of shoes you're wearing, security may instruct you to take them off.
  • Pack any multi-tools or other pointy metal items in your checked luggage. Security personnel don't permit these in carry-on baggage.

Flights To San Francisco

From the hippies hanging out near Haight & Ashbury to the counter culture holding court in the Castro, San Francisco offers a glimpse into America that is as unique as Lombard Street is crooked. Flying into San Francisco International Airport (SFO) is exciting, especially if you catch a glimpse of the iconic Golden Gate Bridge before you land. Whether you are booking one of the cheapest flights to San Francisco, California, for business or to take advantage of one of many excellent San Francisco vacation packages available, flights to San Francisco can open the door to a fantastic urban adventure.

Transportation from SFO

Because there are so many ground transportation options at the airport, staying at one of the San Francisco airport hotels can make for an easy base from which to catch all the city's sights, especially if cheap airfare to San Francisco and budget options are your goal. Once you land, you can use the complimentary AirTrain people movers to get to the BART station for rail service to downtown, or ride them to the rental car center if you prefer the freedom of driving during your stay. For service to the wider San Mateo County area, Samtrans buses can be boarded in the domestic arrival and baggage claim areas. There are also taxis available outside all of the baggage claim areas, or you can use a rideshare app like Uber or Lyft to have a car meet you curbside. Once your San Francisco flight has landed and you check in at your hotel, it's time to explore!

Hotels Near SFO

There’s no denying it, as soon as you get out of the airport, you’re going to want to head to a pub for a pint of Anchor Steam, or make tracks to Tadich Grill for a bowl of their signature cioppino. But, you’ll probably want to drop your bags off at a nearby hotel in San Francisco to change out of your travel clothes and put on something more…Californian. Here are a few of our favorite hotels near SFO:

  • Parc 55 – This contemporary-cool property is located close to SFO as well as all of the downtown action. We recommend a room on an upper floor to take advantage of the expansive views of the city scape, bay, and Golden Gate Bridge.
  • Stanford Court – As one of the top luxury boutique hotels in the nation, you’ll be able to pamper yourself in posh comfort shortly after your arrival at this Nob Hill icon. In addition to upscale opulence, the Stanford Court offers state-of-the-art technologies like an electric car charging station, Google Glass Explorer programs, high-speed Wi-Fi, and a collection of computers and tablets for guests to borrow.
  • Hotel Whitcomb – This historic property once served as a City Hall after the 1906 earthquake. Today, it is one of the most preferred hotels in San Francisco. Foodies will love its proximity to Soma and Hayes Valley, and sports fans are a just a short walk to AT&T Park.
  • Hotel Nikko – This Asian-inspired hotel features a glass-enclosed indoor swimming pool, rooftop lounge, and exotic rental car service. So, even if you’re not a celebrity when you check in, you can live like one during your stay.

Things to Do Near SFO

You probably already have an itinerary planned out before you even book one of our San Francisco flight deals. But here are a few San Francisco treats close to the airport that you might want to consider adding to your list:

  • Pacific Coast Highway – There is no better way to refresh your soul after a long flight than a cruise along the California Coast on one of the most scenic stretches of blacktop on the planet. We suggest a convertible for this.
  • Muir Beach – If the spirit of the open road compels you, keep your foot on the gas and go past downtown, across the Golden Gate, and pull over at this secluded slice of sandy serenity.
  • Winchester Mystery House – Do your travel plans take you to the South Bay? If so, be sure to make a pit-stop at one of the most interesting architectural oddities in the country. The 6-acre property is part Victorian manor, part intricate maze, and 100 percent weird.

Experience San Francisco
