Small efficient airport . Security is so professional , moving people through with teamwork. I've never had to wait more than 10 minutes. Tuesday night workers were the best! What is wrong with other airports? Just remember the snack store closes early bring your own for evening flights
One of the best things about living in Burbank, or near Burbank, is that you can use the Burbank Airport instead of LAX. Whether I'm parking, picking up or dropping off - it's always super quick and easy. The terminals are clean and comfortable. Traveling is so much more enjoyable when it starts with a great airport experience, and that is what you'll get here.
I think the traffic people take it away to seriously and actually cause more congestion. There are crosswalks there and signal lights, it's amazing. When I drive through New York City nobody gets hit by a car yet Burbank Airport has to have four people directing traffic. It just seems like overkill
Update: There is a small restaurant at the front of Terminal A if you need a coffee or small bite before your flight. Keep in mind that you can't take beverages past security. There are plenty of self check in kiosks in the terminal, which makes getting to your gate much faster (unless navigating computer prompts confuses you). I've had the pleasure of coming here now at least 5 times, and, aside from the holiday rush (which wasn't close to the holiday hell of LAX), each time has been pretty much a breeze.
Nice regional airport with a decent amount of parking, curb space and staff. Great way to avoid the mess of LAX. It is quite small, so the amenities are very limited. There aren't even food vendors in the airport secured areas as of right now. However, the airport does seem to be growing with greater interest from "budget" airlines like Alaska, Southwest, and Avelo. The new rental car center is huge. There's a lot of new signage. Maybe more will pop up here in the future?
So small. Tiny everything from gates to bathrooms. Quaint to walk on the tarmac on and off your plane. Only one restaurant/bar option. Also small. That said: I found lovely unsweetened jasmine iced tea at the fast food stop. So it won my approval.
My favorite airport to fly out of in Los Angeles. So easy to drop off and pick up. Easy access from the 5, 210, 134, 170 but I like that you can deplane from both ends of the plane when it's full. Still small enough to just have walk up stairs
Fast check-in but slow boarding
