Yeah LAX for sure. I think LAX has more Asian airlines that only serve LA and not SF, such as Garuda, China Southeastern and China Southern. Also QANTAS and Air NZ only fly to LAX and both have around 5 daily flights from LAX each. I think UA may have more Pacific Rim flights from SF than LA. Also NW and DL fly from LA to Asia but DL doesn't from SF if I remember correctly.

N960AS, you're right about DL. They operate MD-11 LAX-NRT service. However, they don't fly internationally from SFO. LAX is definitely the larger gateway but with SFO's new international terminal, I'm sure airlines will be looking to expand their operations.

I haven't been to ORD recently, but I just flew out of Lax back on Saturday. Man I loved it. LAX is the coolest airport. A week earlier when I flew in, I was listening to the ATC (Channel #9 on UAL's IFE), and during the landing, the ATC gave t/o clearance to a SIA 744. Just as we left the runway after landing, I saw the SIA 744 take off. Only at LAX!

LAX is by far! Also, most Asian flights to LAX use 744's, whereas to SFO they use smaller aircraft.

N960AS,
There is no airline known as "China Southeastern" but an airline called "China Eastern".

That's not really true. Majority of SFO Asian Flight are operated by 744, except CX uses A340, SQ uses 1 A340 and 1 744, and KE uses 777.

The rest are operated by 744.

I take that back. ANA also uses 777.

The rest are operated by 744.

Indeed you are right Airbus A3XX. Oooops, all those Chinese Airlines with directions in their names confused me. Yeah China Eastern, I think I've seen their MD-11s at LAX before.

LAX is a very cool airport. Lots of international airlines and despite UA's 'hub' it isn't dominated by a specific carrier so there is lots of variety.

ORD and LAX are both pretty nice airports to see planes but you forget some of the Asian airports ie: HKG and NRT both awesome airports, and my personal favorite which is not an asian airport, Heathrow, you guys obviously havent been there.. if you think ORD is good you will die when you see LHR

I was very unimpressed with Heathrow. Sure, they offered some unusual airlines, such as Iran Air and Ghana, but it was horrible (T3, etc.) as far as the terminals went...narrow, narrow corridoors.

LAX is one of the worst airports I have ever been to. Overcroded or deserted it stinks. Old and delapidated with its hideous ring roads make it a nightmare on busy days to navigate.

Traffic jams and difficuly parking mean it's almost impossible to find anyone when they come in if it's busy.

Shopping areas or the like? Forget it..

I think SFO could become just as big a gateway to the Pacific as LAX is now. The reason is simple: SFO has a new, modern International Terminal that is only used at currently 35% of its capacity. Besides, SFO is United's primary Pacific gateway, with flights to NRT, HKG, PEK, SEL, and SYD.

I expect China Southern and China Eastern to start flying to SFO within 18 months.

Have been to all the airport you mentioned. I tends to disagree with LHR and NRT. Both are cramped and not that spacious as compare to ultra nice CLK and Changi.

CLK and Changi are in a class of their own. Ever walk down the CLK terminal and shocked by the view it offers. High lifted ceiling with extra wide terminal.

There is not comparison.


25 Cba : I give CDG my vote for the nicest airport. I also thought EWR was nice, the Continental part anyway. IAH has a really nice Intl. terminal (D), and CO'
26 Imkeww : United also has flights from SFO-TPE, PVG, and KIX. It was rumored a while back that United would re-enter the Philippines via a direct SFO-MNL route
27 AA61hvy : oh yeah i know CLK(HKG) and Changi are both amazing airports, but i was refering as to the traffic they get, no question as to that Changi is the supr
