Your Favorite Airport: Burbank's Bob Hope
And I was just there on Saturday, flying out here to New York. Indeed, the Airport Formerly Known As Burbank is by far the easiest for us -- drop me off, and I'm already at the gate moments later. Plus, those non-stop JetBlue flights to the East Coast are pretty economical.
The Burbank Airport lacks a lot of amenities -- the only coffee to be found is "Tully." But the convenience makes up for it. Plus, I kind of like its old-school charm. Walking up the steps to the plane, I always think of that famous shot of the Beatles climbing off their plane at JFK. And although it's kinda weird to have an outdoor baggage carousel, it's pretty close to the curb for easy pickup.
