Re: NorCal vs SoCal

An experience I've certainly had is that LAX is quite reliable as an O&D passenger (and happens to be worlds largest) with minimal chance of delay due to operational reasons, while SFO can literally have as bad odds as a casino in Vegas. This has had me avoid using SFO and choosing OAK/SJC whene...
