This airport is really clean and big. Well maintained, it's lovely Airport. You can find everything here. I enjoyed having layover here for 3 hours. It's really convenient airport. I enjoyed walking while I was waiting for my flight to London.
Overall good experience, especially on the flight. The attendants were very nice and informative, but the boarding and landing took a lot longer than usual. That being said, they usually are pretty speedy. TSA didn't take too too long, but it's always a bit slow. Very nice staff though.
This airport is quite easy to get around. I like the fact that places to eat are nicely distributed in different terminals. Doesn't feel crammed or too busy even on a Friday evening. Looks new and modern at least the 4 terminals I walked around. Hence I would recommend it's okay to have your transits/layovers through this airport.
I love this airport, but it can get crazy here really quickly. Nice restaurants around the airport. You can take the Air Train to all Terminals, car rental center, parking garages, and Hyatt SFO.
My luggage took so long to come out. There were no signs from the baggage claim area to go to the 3rd floor for car rental center.
It is a nice airport overall. It was busy but efficient there are places open for food and drink. Overall a really nice and clean airport even when busy. Checking in is quick and efficient. Note preTSA is busy as I think more people have it now but certainly better than the regular line.
A big and convenient airport. It has modern facilities and easy access to transportation -cabs, bart, taxis. It is well designed and maintained to help travellers with signs and directions. Washrooms are maintained and kept clean. It gets quite busy and is usually little crowded.
Its never to crowded at San Francisco International Airport. Its clean and modern, one of the best airports in the world! Most shops and food vendors are open. I like using the Air Train to take me right to terminals 1, 2 or 3. I like the easy access to SFO from BART. I always take the BART and leave my truck at home safe.
I enjoyed the airport. We had a departing flight close to 10pm so we were here for a while. We did a bit of exploring. Everything seemed cleaned. Certain lobby areas looked really nice.
Show up early so you can relax when you get inside. Take a look around. This airport has some of the best artwork I've seen at an airport. The airport water is "recycled" and filtered in an environmentally conscious way. There is a wide variety of food, and the lounges has many plug ins for your devices. Don't forget to empty out liquids inside any containers before going through security. The TSA staff and security staff are very pleasant and don't bark orders.
Very nice and functional airport, quite spacious and one of the better in US. Quite well organized from the moment you enter the building, everything is well signed posted and good connection to domestic terminals and car rentals by shuttle train. Immigration on arrival and departure is one of the best in the country, very efficient and without long queues. Probably the only downside is if you travel internationally for some flights you need to still go through immigration and go to different terminal. Otherwise nice selection of several decent restaurants, cafes, shops and everything you need to fill your time. Great idea that departure gates are one level below which makes is so much easier for everyone and avoids congestion and crowds on main level, nicely designed
Overall, a pretty great experience. It took a while to get used to the layout of the different terminals and how to use the Air Train, but after some trial and error and learning how to get around I really like the layout.
My only negative experience was at the Wendy's in the international terminal. They were disorganized, rude, inefficient AND got my order wrong. It was one of the worst fast food experiences I've ever had. I would strongly recommend not eating there.
Nice airport. Average food options. Broken fast walks. Easy to navigate. Clear guided signage. Been flying in and out of here for years and the terminals continue to improve. Solid airport. Very beautiful placed in the bay.
When we got there from ATL, our check-in time was at 1AM even though we landed at 9PM. We had nothing to do except sit around and wait. The bathrooms were nice though. I wanted to check out the aviation museum but it was closed. Mostly everything was clean and check-in staff were nice. TSA was easy and swift as well. I was going to go to the Air France lounge but it was under renovation at that time, so I went to the China Airlines lounge which was not the best, but it was something. Overall good airport!

San Francisco airport is just like any other airport in US. Got all the basic facilities but not much character to it. Directions and signs are easy to read and locate. Airport is clean and well maintained. There were no open eating places late at night at the departures area.
Airport can be made more alive with some pictures, statues or figures and can cost very little.
One of the cleanest airports I have ever been in. The bathrooms are amazing, the stores have some very unique finds, the food is legit and from around the world, the seating is plentiful/comfortable, and there is a ton of space to walk around. Unless the security line is long in terminal 1 (which it is later in the day), I love this place. Disfruten/enjoy! 🔥💪🏼😎
I really love when airports display the city's history or culture in their space. I have passed through the domestic terminal of the international airport - Harvey Milk Terminal 1 and loved that there was not only a mini-museum on SF Opera, but also a lot of information on Harvey Milk himself. Other than that the airport is filled with loads of food options and amenities that will make your journey easy!
Nice international airport with good amenities and shops. Seating amount and variety could be better which is why it's four stars instead of five. Easy navigation within the terminal.
I'm thrilled to give SFO airport a 5-star review! The cleanliness of the facilities really stood out to me, creating a pleasant and inviting environment. While I enjoyed my time there, I believe an increase in the number of charging points would further enhance the overall experience for travelers.
A beautiful airport. There are many different restaurants and cafes, many points where you can refill your bottle with fresh water. To figure out where to drop off your baggage with particular airline, have to ask a airport team member.
Whoa!!! All the new additions to the San Francisco Airport!! The renovations & expansions make this airport an international size & the International Terminal is HUGE. It goes on and on!! Did you know there’s an aviation museum & library AND medical clinic at SFO??
Very convenient. Walk distance to other terminals and Bart trains are available within the airport. There is no Plaza Premium lounge - all are operated by united airlines. Food selections are huge. Can also spend time visiting museums in the airport.
A really great airport. Strategically positioned on the outskirts of San Francisco. Very huge, clean and well maintained. Full of art. Well connected with trains to take you to the city center and of course taxis. Was very surprised at just how quick my security check was when leaving. An in and out kinda security check, didn't last even 5 minutes despite the huge number of people. Upon my arrival my exit was also very swift. The quickest immigration stop I've ever had. Very easy to navigate despite it's huge size. And lots of restaurants and shops to buy stuff from. I just fell in love with this airport.
The new update/remodeling is nice, everything is so clean and orderly, even the floors are sparkling.
There are also so many more restaurants and bars by the gates, they have so many water stations to fill our water bottles. Sweet!!!
One of the greatest airport in the world. The best customer services. They employees are polite and professional. All of them were willing to help. Enough space in waiting room area. Parking isn't that bad. I would say that I would definitely fly from here to any destination.

Cool place, full of neat art. If you got the time, go for a walk around and you'll get to see really interesting pieces of modern art. Don't waste your time looking for a Starbucks and take a chance with one of the incredible business
World Class Airport! Art in many, many places, Beautiful! 🧘♀️ Yoga Room, Vegan food options, Pet Relief Centers indoors & Out! Easy to navigate to your gate in a serene, artful environment! Best Airport Director who influenced the artful experience of a public transportation center. I only took one photo this time and it’s Godzilla Funny!
San Francisco has upgraded its airport to a highly functional facility that is easy to use and almost pleasurable to fly from. Seating is comfortable. Restaurant choices are varied and interesting. Restrooms are clean and modern. Signs are readable. Security works well. You can get in and out via BART.
One thing to watch -- airport vendors tend to add an "employee benefits" surcharge to their prices, sometimes declared with a somewhat visible sign, sometimes not. Employee benefits are good. Deceptive pricing is bad. Recommendation -- buy food before coming to the airport to punish the deceptive vendors and the government authorities that permit it.
Ooh. I like this airport. I was in terminal 2 in the D concourse. It's a cute one has a lot of shops and restaurants low to high end. shoe shines, massages and chocolate if you happen to be there when they are open. FYI if you are checking bags with Alaska you are only allowed to check bags 4 hours before you board. Not 3 and a half. Not Three and a quarter. FOUR
This is a very large international airport! Very clean with a lot of modern features.most convenient setup is the water refill station. I wish more airports would have this kind of water station.
SFO serving northern California and the bay area features multiple terminals with the international terminal being well presented with large spaces and a nice checking area. Connecting at the airport was hassle free with good sinage and connectivity. My connection was about 70 minutes from a domestic flight to an international and had no problem getting to where I needed to go, do a formal check-in, and do some airport exploration and some lite shopping. Security checks were well organized and with ample space.
Very well maintained airport, it’s a big airport, has a transit train from domestic to international and to Hyatt hotel and also to rental cars.. makes things very easy.. loved the cleanliness and the atmosphere, and the attitude of the employees working here is very nice

This charming and picturesque West Coast city is the perfect getaway destination for couples, singles, or families. Famous sites, charming streets, beautiful views, and outdoor dining are all part of what makes San Francisco such a great place to visit.
Take a cruise on San Francisco Bay, tour Alcatraz, drive over the Golden Gate Bridge, wander around Fisherman's Wharf, or hop on a street car to explore the city sites.
Summer or fall is a wonderful time to visit, but the climate here is mild and any time of year is pleasant.

They have water bottle refilling stations that are free!
The security is professional and quick, with a very modern tray loading mechanism!
The bathrooms are some of the nicest I've ever seen in an airport!
All in all, a pleasure to fly from here!
The best place in the world. Where your dreams come true. The start of something great. The beginning of your journey to places you had planned to visit one day. Now you have accomplished that goal.
Travel to lands and experience all the wonders that life had given you.
Do not worry, just enjoy your final destination and forget how long it had taken you.
San Francisco international Airport is where it all started.

San Francisco is one of the most vibrant and exciting cities in the world, and I cannot recommend it highly enough. There is so much to see and do in San Francisco, whether you're interested in the arts, culture, food, or just exploring the great outdoors.
One of the highlights of San Francisco is its iconic Golden Gate Bridge. This engineering marvel is a true wonder of the world and offers breathtaking views of the city and the bay. It's a must-see attraction for any visitor to San Francisco.
Another great attraction in San Francisco is Alcatraz Island, which was once home to one of the most notorious prisons in the world. Today, visitors can tour the island and learn about the history of the prison, as well as take in some stunning views of the bay.
San Francisco is also famous for its food scene, which offers an amazing array of cuisines from around the world. Whether you're looking for seafood, Chinese food, Italian food, or anything in between, you'll find it in San Francisco. The city is also home to some of the best restaurants in the world, so be sure to book a table at one of the many Michelin-starred restaurants in town.
For those who love the outdoors, San Francisco has plenty to offer as well. From the scenic Golden Gate Park to the rugged coastline and beaches, there are endless opportunities for hiking, biking, surfing, and more.
Overall, San Francisco is a fantastic destination that has something for everyone. Whether you're traveling with family, friends, or on your own, you're sure to have a memorable time in this amazing city
Clean and functional airport for domestic and international flights. Many food and beverage options, along with several airline and credit card lounges to choose from. Can be a long walk to some gates, and security lines tend to get long during busy hours. Large and easily accessible parking lots available.
Big and very modern. Really busy airport. All well sign posted with directions to the different terminals and gates. I used the Bart train service to get to central SF. Powell and Market Street. You can then connect from there with the cable car and tram system. Purchase a 3 day travel card for $36 and gives unlimited travel for those 3 days.
It was easy time for us while we arrived and departures during our visit. I am satisfied with the facilities and management of airport. It was quick security check .
Very much interesting for me to see YOGA room and Changing ( cloths) Room. If you are rush to Meeting after your arrival use this room to change your attire…. Enjoy Yoga room too
SFO is a nice airport but everything needs to get larger. At peak, the roads, security, parking and food options just appears inadequate. The terminal appears to be shoehorned into the site so it does not appear feasible that expansion is possible at this site. Compared to other international airports, SFO is not that large.
Obviously one of the nicest and cleanest airports we've ever seen. We also met here very beautiful works of art, which decorate the walls all over the airport. Another very interesting thing is that we get to know more about one of San Francisco's very famous mayors, a Chinese native. The airport is very worthy of our choice.
We believe that there will be many tourists around the world who would like to have the opportunity to set foot in the capital of the United States of America as well as admire these iconic works.

I recently had the pleasure of traveling through San Francisco Airport (SFO) and I must say, it was a fantastic experience from start to finish. From the moment I entered the airport, I was impressed with its efficiency, cleanliness, and modern design.
First and foremost, the staff at SFO were incredibly friendly and helpful. Whether it was the security personnel, airline staff, or customer service representatives, everyone I encountered went above and beyond to ensure a smooth and enjoyable travel experience. They were knowledgeable, approachable, and made me feel welcome throughout my time there.
The airport itself is impeccably maintained, with a spacious layout and a wide range of amenities. With plenty of seating areas, clean restrooms, and charging stations, I never felt cramped or uncomfortable, even during peak travel times. The terminal architecture is not only visually stunning but also designed with convenience in mind, with clear signage and easy navigation to make getting around a breeze.
One aspect that truly stood out to me was the food and shopping options at SFO. There is a diverse range of restaurants and eateries, serving everything from quick snacks to gourmet meals. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality and variety of food available. Additionally, the airport houses an impressive selection of shops, offering a mix of luxury brands, local boutiques, and duty-free options. It was a delight to browse through these stores and find unique souvenirs to take home.
Transportation to and from the airport was seamless, with convenient public transportation options such as the BART and numerous rideshare services available. The airport also provides ample parking facilities for those who prefer to drive.
Overall, I had an excellent experience at San Francisco Airport. Its friendly staff, impressive facilities, and superb amenities make it a top-notch travel hub. Whether you are a first-time traveler or a frequent flyer, SFO is sure to leave a lasting impression and make your journey a pleasant one. I highly recommend it to anyone passing through the San Francisco area or using it as a starting point for their travels.
