Top 10 reasons John Wayne is better than LAX.

Jill is off to Boston, while dropping her off I came up with this list.

Top 10 reasons John Wayne is better than LAX:

  1. When dropping somebody off, you can get out of the parking structure before they get to their gate.
  2. There isn’t a giant waste of space in the middle of the airport discised as a resturant.
  3. When coming home you are not passed by two cops going 100+MPH.
  4. When the captain cuts the power on take off it feels like a rollercoaster.
  5. It doesn’t take 45 minutes to get to and from the airport.
  6. You can spot your house while turning onto base.
  7. There is less chance of getting your flight cancelled due to a bomb scare.
  8. The OC jet set crowd is hotter than LA’s.
  9. No drug dogs.
  10. SNA doesn’t sound like something you take to clean out your body.

    There is no better way to start a day than a “Kick in the Pants” Noise Abatement takeoff from SNA!

    I think some pilots call John Wayne the “USS Orange County” because the takeoffs and landings are like an aircraft carrier.

    Top 10 reasons LAX is better than John Wayne:
    1. The screening gate in OC is way understaffed and the lines created are unacceptable — I see people miss their flights all of the time there.
    2. There is a great bar/restaurant in the middle that has a unique architecture — OC people like everything to look the same.
    3. When coming home, you are not passing so many cops waiting to give you a ticket.
    4. The rollercoaster is not fun for everyone, smoother take-offs and landings are at LAX.
    5. Those of us who live in LA county and realize there is more to life outside of the OC curtain, have a closer commute to LAX.
    6. You can spot historical landmarks while on approach to land. To the OC “spot your house” — REALLY? Don’t they look all the same even up close???
    7. There is less of a chance of having to land in Ontario and having to take a bus to OC because of limited operating hours.
    8. The pretentious OC jet set crowd is in fewer numbers at LAX. SNAers, Hotter or more arrogant?
    9. Drug Dogs — and other methods of better security.
    10. Prices are better and more flights are available at LAX — there are better reasons to choose an airport than for its name.
