San Francisco is served by San Francisco Airport, also commonly referred to as San Francisco, San Francisco Intl. The airport code is SFO.

San Francisco International airport is around 21 miles away from the city. It takes about 30 minutes to get into the city on the BART and costs around $10. A taxi from the airport to downtown will take between 25 and 35 minutes and will cost roughly $40. Shuttle buses from the airport to the city are also available and tend to be a bit slower than taxis as they have to make multiple stops, so expect to be on there around 40 minutes. Tickets will range between $15 and $25.
SFO’s Aviation Museum & Library is a great option for travelers who have some downtime to spend at the airport. Open from 10:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and located in the International Terminal pre-security, it is a great educational experience for the whole family.
The Oakland International Airport connects directly via BART to SFO and is a great alternative option for flying into the Bay Area. Slightly to south, you will also find the San Jose International Airport, which is easily reached by shuttle bus from SFO.
Dozens of hotels offer complimentary shuttle services to and from SFO. The shuttle buses can be found in the Hotel Courtesy Shuttle Zones at each terminal. Phones to contact participating hotels are located at each zone.

I went to a kayak help desk to have a ticket printed that showed my TSA precheck because it wasn’t showing on my mobile ticket, and no one was there to help. I waisted for 10 mins. It then took me nearly 2 hours to get through security. I asked if I could get through quicker and was told I could not, despite it being passed my boarding time. I then ran to my gate where I waited for another 10 mins (no one was there, again) and then an employee came out and said they couldn’t let anyone board once the door was shut. He then directed me to the delta help desk (there was at least 20 people behind me who missed their flight). I then had to pay an additional $75 to get a later flight. The whole experience was awful and I’m disappointed with Kayak and the gate confusion, but mostly Delta and the lack of customer service."

Pros: "Awesome roomy seat right behind business class. Could not have asked for better! And it was a gorgeous new aircraft."
Pros: "Nice new seats."
Cons: "The new seats are meant for "people shorter than 6 feet tall" as the flight attendant said to me. Is the airline industry deliberately discriminating against 6'6" people? 15% of the people you seat based on population are over 6'. I'm sick of paying more money for my long legs."

Cons: "Before I booked the flight I noticed it was only on time 53% of the time. True to that number we were delayed almost an hour before takeoff. Why schedule fights so close if almost half the time it's delayed? Something needs to change."

Cons: "People still using mobiles as we were taking off. Crew seemed not too bothered."
Pros: "The flight was >1 hour late, which the pilot told us was due to the LAX controllers changing the landing patterns due to weather. So this really wasn't anyone's fault.

They also didn't tell me baggage prices when I was there just swiped my card."
Pros: "Flight attendants very kind"
Cons: "Flight didn't exist"
Pros: "Flight Attendant Sullivan added humor and attentiveness to flight"
Cons: "All went well."
Pros: "San Fran to Vegas - Good Flight! Slept the whole way so no need for entertainment however - it being an United Airline Flight I assumed all of the planes would have inflight tv’s on the backs of the seats. Other than a little turbulence - great flight! Thanks for keeping my baby and I safe."
Cons: "Delayed. Charged for my bag even tho i have the United explorer Visa. Skipped me with pretzels and when I asked for some, it was as if i was asking fir something extraordinary!"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed and despite assurances by United staff at the gate in Seattle that we would make our flight in SFO to Zürich we were too late and we missed our flight to Zürich. 14 hours later we are still at SFO trying to get on a flight to Frankfurt then on to Venice.

I had to run from a gate in the 60s to 84D and the people at 84D were whining about my getting to them so late. United Airlines needs to get its stuff together!"
Cons: "Great flight"
Cons: "Entertainment doesn't work with Android 8.0 devices because you decided not to support newer versions? Stop restricting it to higher versions idiots"

Cons: "Cacelled then delayed twice. United workers are also very rude. I give them a big ol"
Pros: "Effort by Seattle team to find alternate routes"

Cons: "Did not make connection due to flight being late"
Cons: "flight control forced us to miss my connection to Kansas City so had to spend $150 on a hotel in San Francisco and wait an entire day to get home."
Pros: "Luggage bag broken by baggage handlers"
Cons: "Luggage bag broken by baggage handlers"
Pros: "More important than the trip home last Wednesday was the reason for the trip. We attended my granddaughter's wedding. Everything else was secondary. Even if the trip had been in a one wheeled barrow, it would have been good. To get to what you want which is the mechanics of the trip. The two people who attended to the aisle chair, most teams were competent. Some hadn't done many passengers so they were fumbling with the straps. I've learned that I almost alway have to ask for one at the gate where they check or issue, (what's it called, loading permits, some kind of pass, not landing pass. loading pass. I can't remember and my wife has gone to bed.) Well, they have to come up with an aisle chair because I've only got 1 1/2 legs. I always make it to the seat on the plane, but the competency of the various crews is uneen. Sorry my answer is so nonspecific but I don't remember one airline from another. Great people all, get the job done."
Cons: "Not much I don't like. They get us there That is the main thing. Sometimes when the plane stops after it has pulled away from the Jet Way, the pilot gives an explanation that I find unfulfilling, not enough details. I suppose if they explained more, other fliers would find the explanation too verbose. I can live with it. Again this is about all flights and airlines. Nothing stands out, such as, " this awful thing happened when we left San Francisco.""
Cons: "Sitting on runway for almost an hour bc of ground stop in San Francisco"
Cons: "Delayed getting on our way I think because they were late getting in and had to do all the plane checking. Captain said safety checks. Seat space felt tight and I am short."

Pros: "Friendly and helpful staff."
Pros: "On time and smooth flight"
Cons: "I wasnt allowed a carry on because there was no room on the plan. unfortunately what I planned on carrying aboard was fragile and could not be checked. I was stuck in seattle hoping for another flight I would be able to board. When ever possible I will do my best to avoid United"

Cons: "United had us board and unboard and then board again due to flight delays. United also told us the delay would be only 40 minutes, but I looked at the delay in SFO and it was 2 hours. Eventually United also increased our delay by 30 minute intervals until it was about 2 hours. Once I arrivied in SFO I got a text message notification stating my luggage had been put on an incorrect flight and I would have to return to get my luggage. The attendants at the podium were rude. This was my first terrible flying experience ever."
Pros: "Download the United App (before takeoff! Or you'll have to pay). The App has some good movies and you can watch them free of charge."
Pros: "The flight was not charged."
Pros: "Seat itself was comfortable."
Cons: "Out of several beverage options. TV was not working at my seat. Seats also a little cramped. Boarding seemed disorganized."
Cons: "WiFi wasn't working properly and the power outlet"
Cons: "Very poor customer service"
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Children were allowed to kick chairs and slam tray tables through the entire flight. It was far beyond childish play. It was awful and no crew did anything g about it."
Pros: "nothing since the flight was delayed 4 times and ended up being canceled. No apologies or refunds were issued. This is not the first time United has ruined my vacation, but it's the last time I will use their services."
Cons: "The complete indifference of United."
Cons: "was more than 4 hour delayed"
Pros: "Both flights were early, which was nice for a change."
Pros: "United airlines seems no better or worse than most major airlines today."
Cons: "I am fed up with the herding mentality by most airlines. Since when did purchasing an economy seat mean you are not entitled to at least a modicum of comfort on a flight. The legroom provided now is no where near enough for any normal size human. Additionally it's still annoying to pay $25.00 for a single checked bag. I tried United after many years but will be returning to Southwest Airlines - in the long run it's less expensive. I realize nothing will change based on my opinion, regardless, it is more comfortable and dignified to take a Greyhound bus than to fly a major airline these days."
Cons: "All flights were delayed.. Boarding system seemed very unorganized."
Cons: "Sat in airplane for more than an hour due to "maintenance""
Pros: "Nice leg room courteous attendants"
Cons: "Pay to watch all tv? Not worth the charge"
Pros: "BEFORE BOARDING, THE STAFF WAS SUPER FRIENDLY AND ACCOMMODATING"
Pros: "The captain kept us informed, the flight attendants were simply amazing, going above and beyond to ensure the best flight possible."
Cons: "The plane was delayed twice. The crew members at the terminal did nothing to explain why. I do know that in their world things like this happen, but in the customer's world, things like this can really mess up someone's day, so simple periodic updates as well as one genuine apology for the inconvenience would have made things a whole lot better."
Cons: "Late, deplane, staff was unhelpful"
Pros: "Friendliness of the crew...leg room ....excellent, could stretch my legs out and was not cramped."
Cons: "Paying 30.00 for each bag and was not give the whole soda when offereda soda"
