SFO is the the easiest to get to candlestick park. It's quite close.
SFO often has flow control delays, especially in the morning during fall/winter/spring. If you are coming from the east coast, take a morning flight that flies from somewhere east of the rockies. Flow control is never issued for the early departures from ORD/MSP/DTW/JFK, etc. Flow Control really hits the shorter flights from the west coast into SFO.
I agree, but I must point out that summer isn't that great either. The OP didn't say where he was coming from. If it's a flight departing early in the day from far away SFO
should be fine. If you are flying from RNO
(nominally about 45 minutes) it is often faster to drive the 200 or so miles.
If you are planning a round trip, then the flow control can get you on the return no matter where you are going. If you are planning on connections in either direction you are probably doomed.
I almost never get delayed into OAK
. If cost is an issue you can take a shuttle to the BART station at OAK
and get fairly close to Candlestick (actually, you could take it all the way to SFO
possibly beating a flight scheduled to SFO
is a beautiful airport and there is lots to see and do there, but I hate having to use it.
