SWA has served OAK for years...

Depending upon where you are in the East Bay relative to runway 11-29 at OAK, they could be low, but then again, that's what one would expect. Too low? That's entirely subjective...

Yes, Air Nambia often are seen making low approaches, usually many times during the day!  wink 

But seriously, it's basically up to the controlers, so they could be bringing them in low today/tonight.

May I suggest someone pay more attention in your English class at school.

And yet this sentence, phrased as a question, fails to end in a question mark.

Well, the altitude of the approach is mainly left up to ATC, so most likely ATC has told the pilot to descend to that altitude while on approach.

Ah, give him a break. He's new, he'll learn.

Maybe one of the neighbors annoyed an ATC person?
