United Airlines

Besides Taking Delta Airlines and Delta Shuttle, I also like Using United Airlines on some Domestic and International Routes but I don't have many MR's from their Frequent Flyer Program Mileage Plus as I used Delta Airlines more as their Frequent Flyer Program is better as your mileage don't expire (but you need higher mileage accrual to get more MR's).

United Airlines is one of the major players in the North American Ailine Industry in is a Major Rival of Northwest-Delta and American Airlines, all are legacy airlines and faces stiff competition from no frills budget airlines like southwest but heck im not averse to flying different airlines and this time i've book a flight via United Airline on an Airbus A 320 plane. United offers connections to over 1,000 destinations in over 170 countries worldwide. United's largest hub is O'Hare International Airport, where it has more than 550 daily departures. United also has hubs in Denver International Airport, Washington Dulles International Airport, San Francisco International Airport, and Los Angeles International Airport. United's route network spans the globe with route authorities in North America, Europe, Asia, Austraila, the Middle East, Latin America and the Caribbean.

American Eagle now Envoy Air

a subsidiary of American Airlines and recently rebranded into Envoy Airlines.

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).

San Diego International 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

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)

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.
