Hoping for a more economical way than Uber (65 each way) and super shuttle (70 each way) and Disneyland express (78 each way)
Thanks for that suggestion! I haven't booked our flights yet. I actually think that may give us a slightly later flight on Wed which means a little more sleep. Yay!!On a side note, you might check out flying into LGB (Long Beach). I've been using that airport most of the time for the past 2 years because the flights are usually cheaper to/from SMF and it's such a quick and cute little airport. Travel distance to DLR is almost the same as SNA. I only have to be there an hour before my flight.
Same here. I arrive 1 hour before flight and always still have time for coffee and to break out the laptop. SNA is easy peasy.I always arrive 1 hour before flight time out of SNA and that is always about 30 minutes too much. do have Precheck, but even without it, the security line is rarely longer than 5 minutes. The terminals are small. Once through security, you will be at your gate within a couple minutes.
Hi neighbor! We do this flight a LOT! SJC is extremely easy to navigate. But as for timing there are a couple things you need to consider; are you checking bags and are you flying at commute times?I just figured out since it's on only 2 of us (for the first time in 16 years!!) it's actually about the same amount to fly from San Jose to SNA and back than to drive using Southwest. Yay!!Hubby has had a few trips, but I have't flown in 16 years either!!
Since we've never flown down before, I'm trying to figure out a few things.
How early do we need to be a the SNA airport? 2 hours? Our flight is 9:30, so can I cut it a little closer and leave the hotel at 7:30? How bad is traffic at that hour?
Google Maps says 22-55 minutes.
My estimator says that an Uber should be about $25. Does that seem right? Is there a better or more cost efficient way to go?
Any help or advice in this area is appreciated! Thanks!!
I am weekly flyer out of SJC...Long Term perking is $18 and the shuttle bus system is one of the best to get to the terminal. MUCH less effort then that time it takes to walk form daily parking lots. I am usually not a fan of long term but at SJC it is easy peasy IMO.in San Jose, you will just need to navigate parking and security. Long term parking is not close so you might look to see if taking a shuttle/uber/lyft is a cheaper faster option.
