'Camping' Out In Airports Overnight

Mon Jul 28, 2003 1:00 pm

With all the secuirty now, is it OK to crash out in the terminals overnight? I was looking to book a flight, and the airport in question is SFO. I would get in around 10:30pm, but my flight leaves around 6:30am. I know some airports (supposedly TPA) it's ok, but I was curious about SFO.

BTW, AA has been having some awsome fares from SFO-MCO. I booked in Sept and it was $160 R/T, I found another one for $126 (which I plan to book too). Thanks for the info.

I would think SFO would be fine. NW has flights leaving as late as 2:40am, for example. I haven't done it, but I'd be surprised if it's an issue.

btw, one of the best places I've found to overnight is BWI. Not only do they have an area (landside) with nice fluffy couchlike things, they've got a 24 hour Burger King right next to it for when you need a drink.

Anchorage used to have a great place, down in concorde "C" next to the animal mounts.

But they demolished that section two years ago when they started to build the new addition.

Most places now aday, as long as you have a boarding pass and/or have an airline/employee ID will allow you to stay, especially the major Intl. airports (i.e LAX, ORD, SFO, etc.)

I've done it a few times when I've non-reved and got bumped off all of the flight. The pits has to be SJU, the best was LAX.

just my 2 cents

i don't think there is a problem when you are bumped off a flight. However, it might be if you are not bumped off a flight and are just there to be there. I say go for it, though.

I was able to stay in DEN overnight when I didn't make a non-rev NJ flight. Wasn't able to find a nice place to sleep, like on a couch or something, but that just meant I slept really good on the flight back home the next morning.
