Each Friday, we feature a reader-inspired tip as our Travel Tip of the Day (with exceptions, like last Friday’s tip about what my friend Valerie wore to stay safe while flying). This week’s tip comes from reader Paul B., who shares an SFO update:

“We recently flew from, and returned to, San Francisco International on American Airlines. AA has recently moved to the sparkling new Terminal 1 — actually just a month ago. So this was our first experience at this location. On the positive side, the check-in counters are great and the process is very efficient, especially for premium flyers like ourselves.

“Upon check-in, however, we were warned that our gate was a long, long way down to the very end of the terminal. This proved to be true of course and inoperative electric sidewalks didn’t help with the trek. At best, great exercise but be warned in advance to either fly on AA out of nearby San Jose International or allow lots of extra time if using SFO is absolutely necessary.”

If you have to fly right now, or maybe just for the next time you fly out of or through SFO, this is great information to know. For more on SFO’s Terminal 1 (aka Harvey Milk Terminal 1), see this post. Thanks, Paul!
