It sounds like the airport plans to have everything under control, and they’ll be utilizing some software that will assign specific departure times in hopes of minimizing takeoff delays. If you are to hit a little bit of an inconvenience it sounds like the middle of the week between 10am and 1pm might be the worst, but airport officials are quick to point out that will only be like 15 minutes at most.
For those that would prefer to just skip over SFO entirely there are plenty of other area options, as both the airport in Oakland and the one in San Jose are also available—assuming their locations are close to your final destination. Even farther north in California is Sacramento, and that’s a solid alternative to those looking to hit up wine country for the weekend or to see that giant red rabbit thing.
Hopefully things will be smooth sailing throughout the summer, but if not know that there are some options—and to pack a little extra in-terminal entertainment. Either way you can’t go wrong spending some time in The City by the Bay, so enjoy!
