    AA to San Diego

    Our choice of airline is always American. Our most recent trip to San Diego; we chose to fly to out of LGA on a Friday afternoon; right after work. We were a bit delayed taking off and then delayed again in Chicago so we arrived a few hours later than anticipated to San Diego.

    The flight itself was no problem to Chicago and then on to San Diego. My only complaint is that they broke two pieces of our luggage (still fighting with them over that).

    Charles A. Linbergh Statue at the Airport

    Every year 17 million passengers pass through the San Diego International Airport, also known as Linbergh Field. They come and go on 600 flights a day, with 19 commercial airlines. It is the busiest single-runway airport in America. A statue in front of the airport depicts Lingerbh, both as a young boy, and as a man.

    The San Diego airfield opened on Pacific Highway in 1928 and was dedicated in honor of pioneer aviator Charles A. Lindbergh. It was the first federally certified airfield that could serve all plane types, including seaplanes, earning it the first ever AAA rating for an airport.

    As far as big city airports go, this is a very convenient one, being only a short taxi ride from the downtown area.

    Centrally Located Airport

    by LauraWest Written Apr 15, 2007

    San Diego has a rare airport location. It is right downtown, next to the Pacific Ocean. You fly in so low over the buildings and Balboa Park, which is exciting & beautiful. A cab ride or the public transportation is easy to Downtown hotels or to transfer from the city bus to the Trolley system. Of course, many hotels have shuttle busses that pick up at the airport, as in many American cities.

    If you have time, check out the art exhibits at the airport upstairs. They are always very good.

    San Diego Lindbergh Field (SAN)

    San Diego Lindbergh Field

    Of all the airports through which I have flown, San Diego's Lindbergh Field is closest to the downtown. In fact, on final approach, it looks as though you can reach out and touch the high-rise buildings. In fact, Balboa Park and San Diego Zoo are in the glide path. I flew there, and, man, were my arms tired :) Seriously, folks, I took Delta 1661 from Cincinnati-Northern Kentucky to San Diego. On the way back, it was Delta 198 to Cincinnati-Northern Kentucky.
