After a week in Cuba and another week in Atlanta, I’m glad to be back in San Francisco! With all the hoo-hah over security lines at ATL, I was sure to arrive two hours early on Saturday at around 9 a.m. Much to my surprise, the PreCheck line had a ZERO-minute wait. Seriously, I was the only person in line and sped right through.
I flew American Airlines on this trip (using AAdvantage award), and was surprised that my flight to SFO via PHX did not depart from ATL’s T-gates. Instead, I had to trundle out to the old US Airways gates on D. Arriving in SFO, same thing happened: I was expecting a nice walk through American’s T2, but instead, we arrived at the old US Airways’ gate in Delta’s T1C boarding area. One thing I did notice in PHX is that American is making rapid progress on painting all its jets in AA livery– I only saw one US Airways jet, which of course was the A320 I flew from PHX to SFO. –Chris
