- Flights to San Francisco from the main airports in India will land at San Francisco International Airport, which is situated approximately 12 miles (almost 20kms) outside the city centre and is the main airport for international flights into San Francisco. There are no direct flights from India to San Francisco, with most carriers making at least one stopover, so you may wish to choose an airline that stops somewhere you'd like to visit.
- Travellers who are stressed about flying and who love dogs can seek out members of San Francisco International Airport’s ‘Wag Brigade’. This Brigade consists of dogs that are part of the San Francisco Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and who, with their handlers, stroll through the terminals to bring calm and happiness to those afraid of flying. The animals, selected for their temperament and suitability for airports, have vests with the words “Pet Me!” written on them so that you can identify them easily.
- For passengers with layovers of four hours or more after flights to San Francisco, why not venture out into San Francisco and the Peninsula Bay area. This is easily done on public transport – if you take the BART train from the airport to, for example, Montgomery Street Station, you will be able to visit Chinatown, the historic heart of San Francisco, and Northbeach, with its Italian influence, which boasts a variety of jazz clubs, galleries, restaurants and ice-cream shops. The journey time for this excursion is 30 minutes one way and you can buy tickets at the airport train station.
- If you need to escape the noise of the terminal and retreat to do some reflection, meditation or prayer, seek out the Berman Reflection room in the main hall of the international terminal at San Francisco Airport. Here you can spend some time in quiet contemplation before embarking on the next leg of your journey.
- Travelling with children? San Francisco International Airport has a wide range of activities to entertain them in between flights. There are play areas in T2 and T3, or why not visit the Aviation Museum and Library, which is free of charge and consists of exhibitions that tell the story of the history of air transport and the development of commercial flight. For those who love aviation (children and adults alike) – this is a good place to spend some time.

Top 5 airlines flying to San Francisco
Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "JAL lounge at Haneda was the best I've ever been in. The Business Class configuration is terrific -- as private as can be on an airplane, without going First. And the JAL staff, on the ground as well as in the air, are Grade A diplomats, counselors, and -- in a word -- professionals. Which is sorely lacking in US air carriers, who don't seem to understand that air travel is a service industry, and to excel in a service industry, PEOPLE are most important to the customers. Specifically, having enough people: US airline employees are well-trained professionals too, but "corporate" consistently under-hires/deploys, which leaves employees juggling far too much at once, which degrades the service experience for the customer. Yeah, I get "the bottom line," but service industry customers will always go to businesses that offer better service. Ok, rant over. JAL is tops."
Cons: "Security and Immigration at Tokyo Haneda is harder than at US airports, but that's to be expected and nothing that JAL can control."
Pros: "Simple check in and boarding, right on time."
Cons: "Business class seats not very long if you are tall. Western meal option is not really very western. Crew is a little too efficient- got woken up 90 minutes before landing to clear the mattresses. Lots of announcements- a bit too much. On time, and quick to respond to requests. Sake was good as was the ramen."

Shortly before we landed at Manila, we were informed that in order to meet international flight rules and regulations that insecticide will be sprayed we were advised to cover our nose,as a medical personnel I see it not good cos it can trigger an Asthmatic attack in a known asthmatic patient ,it was a lovely journey"

Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Comfort. Seats were very uncomfortable with absolutely NO leg room. I fly a lot and this was one of the WORST leg room experiences I had."
Pros: "Virgin Atlantic is the best airline I’ve ever flown on internationally. The service is wonderful, from check in to inflight service. Everything went as planned. The food and drinks on board are free and they are an abundance of snacks, much more than we dreamed. The flight attendants are excellent"

Pros: "Most of it was of a reasonable standard."
Cons: "Plane was full"

Pros: "It was empty so we were told we could move around in the empty seats"
Cons: "Food was basically carbs, carbs and more carbs (especially if vegetarian). Some diversity, please. Staff forgot requests on a couple of occasions (Economy Delight cabin)."
Pros: "Excellent service!"
Cons: "Media screens are old and miscalibrated. Selection was decent. Food is probably average for the industry which to me is worse than fast food."

Pros: "crew / cabin staff always seem very friendly and genuine and a willingness to help"
Pros: "The crew were very attentive, they tried hard to help me with comfort, drinks etc. I didnt have food as it was so good in the Virgin Clubhouse!"

Cons: "The food is not very good at all. One mediocre meal served soon after take-off, then for the rest of the flight tasteless, cardboard pasties and wraps."
Pros: "I like the professional approach of the airline and the staff. Seats are really comfortable and i did not need my sleeping pillow at all as the headrest of my seat was already so comfortable."
Cons: "There is not much which i did not like about this airline. Just like other airlines, now have started feeling that Economy class travellers are being approached with bit biased approach in hospitality though they have major contribution in meeting flight running expenses. All airlines should start considering this fact and improve the overall approach."
Cons: "Good overall"
Pros: "Top crew very friendly and professional"
Cons: "Business class food was bizarre for breakfast - a Mexican taco??? Asked for eggs from economy to be back later up"
Pros: "- Special meals available for those with dietary restrictions. - Friendly cabin crew."
Cons: "- Boarding kept getting delayed without any warning. - Duty free purchase was meant to be collected just before boarding the plane but mine was not there. This was not so much an issue but the man said he would have my bag sent to my seat and I was subsequently approached by a crew member who asked for my receipt. Which he was holding in his hand. I would have thought it would be quite easy to confirm the person without them having the receipt as the their name and seat number is on the receipt but he had to go back and check if it was okay. - Found it hard to sleep on the overnight flight due to uncomfortable seats. Would probably not be an issue in upper class. - No comment on entertainment as did not use it."
Pros: "Must be a coincidence only... But was lucky to have 3 seats all for myself as the plane was underbooked. Would have given them 4 of 5 if not for the 3 hr flight delay."

Pros: "A smoothtrip run by great staff."
Cons: "Thé food was rather stodgy overall."

Cons: "Lack of business class seats and no premium economy seats on this flight"
Cons: "No flight"
Cons: "Missed connection to SFO"
Pros: "Friendly staff, so much food/snacks were offered. Good movies available."

Cons: "the tv screen's touch screen capabilities could use an upgrade, it was a hassle to navigate, not very sensitive to touch."
Cons: "Incredibly uncomfortable, not enough minimum space to fit my knees behind seat in front when front passenger reclined. 6 hours is too long to have a metal rod sticking straight into your knee caps. Shoulders were squished between other passengers and had to sit twisted the whole way and Im not a large person, but am 6ft. Cabin crew impolite and unhelpful. Food was awful and made my friend sick."
Pros: "Flight was close to being on time. I was able to get a lot of sleep on the flight."

Pros: "The pilots gave details of flying conditions and landing conditions. Flight was smooth and on time"
Cons: "Seat pitch is tight and seats don't recline. Boarding should be back of plane forwards. This would eliminate the log jam that happens when it's front first."
Cons: "Hardly saw a steward in business class the whole flight. Must be part of BA’s cost saving initiatives, but means you don’t get food on time, offered drinks or even a menu"

Cons: "What’s the difference between BA and EasyJet?"
Pros: "The plane got from a to b safely"
Cons: "The food was dreadful. Both the gluten free and regular meals. Tasteless and unimaginative. Very dodgy landing. The time of arrival given by the airline prior to flying did not take into account the fact that the clocks went back. So our pickup was delayed. Not good at 4 am"

Cons: "My flight never happened due to the cancellation."
Pros: "Great crew, very friendly"

Pros: "Very little."
Cons: "Awful (typically BA) configuration im Club World on a 787 - cramped, inadequate storage, just lacking essential comfort for a supposed premium class. Food: seriously, I've had better in student cafes. Just stop it BA - its like some kind of prison food. Entertainment: meh. Small selection of new release movies. Crew: with the exception of one - just one from a complement of 15 odd - of the crew, the rest were a surly, inhospitable miserable bunch. If you hate your job don't take it out on customers - especially in a service industry."

Cons: "2hr 40min delay, and a very hectic and long boarding process"
Pros: "There was sufficient too in seating. The crew brought water around several times during the flight."
Cons: "There was no welcoming/comfort packet. That would be a small cost, but makes people feel tended. I left my sleep mask and in-flight socks because I expected British Air to provide those things as they have before. The snacks were insubstantial. No nuts, fruit, or cereal bars; only fluff. The "pizza" was tough. Not a good choice for microwaving."
Pros: "Good price and pleasant plane environment"
Cons: "Having to pay for seat choice"
Pros: "The staffs were brilliant"
Pros: "I did get to Glasgow"
Cons: "Boarding by bus, late, expensive, bag fee, no drink."

Pros: "Service levels were high and good humored as usual, cabin was clean and reasonably comfortable."
Cons: "Apart from still objecting to the principle of treating non-Business class customers like the budget airlines, the food selection on European flight leg was ok, but sales system is so slow and laborious that in future I'll probably buy in the departures terminal and carry on board."
Pros: "787 is new. boarding was mostly efficient, although i was prevented from boarding even though there was nobody in queue due to some rules. food was good. entertainment was pretty complete. crew did well, but their command of english was not as good as one might expect."
Cons: "787 had issues with the window tinting. although it was a day flight, it felt like a night flight, with the expected effects on jet lag and fatigue. also, in premium economy, my seat was in the very last row, next to the toilet with no window, even though it is a window seat. to call a seat the 'window' seat, and then have no window is deceptive."
Pros: "Crew was so professional and friendly Plane up to date and comfortable Food was good"
Cons: "Better seats, the main cabin extra seats were just like the other main cabin seats. One particular stewardess was very rude to all the passengers, while the steward Jeffery was very nice and friendly."
Pros: "That the flight attendant was really helpful"
Cons: "If the flight would have been on time"
Pros: "The pasta meal was quite good"
Cons: "Some more space. Individual entertainment. Air quality"
Cons: "On Time. Delayed advice 3 times."
Pros: "Wide choice of films on the flight, boarding was hassle free."
Cons: "Crew could have been much politer when asking about the food wishes of others. Seemed to have no idea how to walk through the aisles, hitting my head and shoulders more than once while walking through."
Cons: "Seats what happened to towlets after food Also never asked if we would like water etc I felt invisible"
Pros: "Considering it was only a 2.5 hour flight, the snack was fairly good."
Pros: "It left on time and arrived on time"
Cons: "Service, comfort and food as I would rate these below 0 if there was that option."
Cons: "Multiple delayed flights leading to short connection time. Despite meeting stated time, denied entry and surprises that my ticket was changed with no effort to correct said error at the gate despite adequate time prior to take off."
Pros: "Good seat"
Cons: "Headset didn't work and no replacement"
Cons: "Delay luggage"
Pros: "Checking in with my Mum who needs assistance was excellent."
Cons: "Lack of Entertainment."
Cons: "Short flight there was no entertainment but that’s ok"
Pros: "I liked the room."
Cons: "There was no entertainment. Could not get seats together."
Cons: "I could not check in online nor selecting a seat in advance. Getting the boarding pass and the seat was a nightmare. British neither American could not help me out. Horrible experience"
Cons: "Super tiny seats"
Pros: "Flight crew were very apologetic"
Cons: "Missed connecting flight from Miami. Only one flight per day. Had to take a flight to an alternative location, drive for an hour down the coast and take a ferry to my final destination."
Pros: "The flight crew was quite lovely."
Cons: "People all over the coach section were complaining about not being able to sit together. Families with babies, couples, even ours (though the kids are old enough for me not to be truly worried as some were). Somehow reservations seems to have messed up an entire flight. We gave up trying to fix it for fear they would make it worse. Then the woman at the gate tried to get folks to volunteer to give up their seats on an overbooked flight. But she was screaming at us. Unbelievably unpleasant to be yelled at over and over again and told we could lose our seats. The poor weather likely caused flights to be rerouted into PHL so our flight out to SFO ended up 1/3 empty. FABULOUS. But the gate experience was horrible and the legroom, had it been a full flight, was miserable. I'm in search of an airline with a humane approach."
Pros: "I liked the entertainment. Seats were ultimately uncomfortable. Not helped by the backs being loose."
Pros: "The plane was late but from that point everything was fine."
Cons: "Was missed due to delayed flight"
Cons: "The terminal 52A-J is a disgrace"
Cons: "The flight was delayed. The food was not great. There is not a lot of space in these planes, and it was a long flight. There is no power supply."
Pros: "Asked a stewardess to turn the heat up and she did."
Cons: "Freezing cold air conditioning. Every person I could see was wrapped up in their blanket before we had even taken off."
Pros: "eh, mediocre but usual service from a US airline. Just enough to get you from point A to B, but you’re exhausted once there."
Cons: "too little leg room, and quite uncomfortable seats, couldn’t relax and was cramping from being unable to move more than an inch."
Cons: "No signage for checking bags. Was total cluster. No one knew where to take bags or what line to be in. Employees kept telling us we were in the wrong line but didn’t seem to tell us what was the correctly line."
Pros: "Great films and tasty food"
Cons: "Had to run to gate after two buses to reach correct terminal. Saw info that flight was closing. Held up at gate due to confusion with my boarding pass. Limited leg room on flight. End of flight huge queues at Dallas airport for security. After a long flight a passenger does not need to be corralled through excessively long winding lines."
Pros: "Flight attendants actually seemed to care about what they were doing. Seats were pretty comfy for once."
Cons: "Flight delayed with no explanation or apologies. Putting two and two together from the airport monitors it looks like they had to swap planes due to a scheduling or maintenance issue. Just another chapter in the neverending saga of delayed American airlines flights"
Pros: "Boarding, comfortable seats, clean"
Cons: "Mediocre service, choice of food was down to one option (and I was on the 2nd row)"
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "Staff at the check-in counter made fun of my surname. Bad start but not noteworthy unless combined with the rest of the experience. The flight was delayed causing me to miss another AA connection by minutes. Waited in line to be told I wouldn't get on a flight til the following day, they couldn't help with accommodation and I wouldn't receive my luggage until the following day. In short, AA left me stranded in a strange city at midnight with no accommodation and no luggage. It was 18 degrees and I was in t-shirt and shorts. What a memory."
Pros: "Flexibility and helpfulness of staff."
Cons: "I no longer fit in the seats because they keep shrinking the pitch"
Pros: "The overall service x"
Pros: "Quick and did good job"
Cons: "After flying Japan Airlines I wish there were more free food and entertainment"
Pros: "Entertainment was good"
Cons: "Flight was late, seats was small, all time something smelled so much."
Pros: "Not very much positive to say unfortunately. The staff were good and did as much as they could to keep up feed and happy."
Cons: "The plane was extremely old and dated. Never been on such an old plane with no up to date equipment or facilities. The chairs were very uncomfortable and the food was awful. There was no personal entertainment screen for an 11 hour flight and only one of the safety demonstration screens was working during take off. Also no plugs at all."
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Pros: "Boarding and flight were on time."
Cons: "Staff were so rude"
Pros: "It was on time. Crew were very good."
Cons: "Plane seemed very dated. No individual entertainment No USB chargers Not much space"

Pros: "Seats quite comfortable. Crew ok."
Cons: "Pitiful food offering and no entertainment at all when on previous 1.5 hour AA flight choice of movies."
Pros: "Very friendly, constantly hard working crew. They didn't stop moving through the cabin for the whole flight. Swift boarding."
Cons: "Extremely poor food. Airline food is rarely enjoyable but I had two mouthfuls of my pasta and left the rest even though I was hungry. Dreadful "entertainment " system. 4 tiny screens over the centre row is seats showed the in flight movies. This on a transatlantic flight. What decade are American Airlines in?! The fleet look like they date back to the '90's at best!!"
Pros: "Was on time"
Pros: "smooth check in and boarding etc"
Cons: "Wifi wasn't working so no entertainment"
Cons: "No room, limited entertainment, mediocre food. Was a very uncomfortable, long flight! Luggage late coming off plane, missed connecting flight and was not very helpful in getting rebooked."
