Food & shops

Don't let this new somewhat sterile airport fool you- decent to great food options abound at SNA including a wine bar with food, upscale Mexican restaurant with table service and a food court with pink berry and a SoCal hot dog joint with a build your own dog with 15 different toppings for chicken sausages, turkey dogs and kielbasa

Gate & boarding

While the gate manager was humorous I was forced to check a regulation size carry on bag as being too big.

John Wayne - Orange County to Chicago on 30 Jul 2012

Gate & boarding

ZERO plugs in Terminal A, from what I could see. In this day and age, that is unacceptable. You might have to walk all the way to B or C to get one, I know C has work stations. The good thing is that the airport is small, so there isn't a trek between security and the gate.

Check-in

Get the boarding pass on your smartphone and save some paper and headache! No problems scanning it at gate and security.

Food & shops

There aren't a ton of offerings because it is a pretty small airport but what is available is pretty good. We hung out the Oasis Grill & Sky Lounge and had a nice breakfast before boarding our flight.

Check-in

At the American counter, you self-check-in at a kiosk, then an agent calls out your name when you are done and he/she is ready. Easy, and no frustrating lines. Pays off the people who can take care of their business quickly, and I appreciate that. Especially since checking in on the American website is wonky; couldn't get an electronic boarding pass for both legs of a flight!
