An airport that’s not terrifying

So I’ve just found my new favorite airport. The Long Beach Airport in California totally rocks. It’s tiny and doesn’t have too many flights, but it has the feel of when flying was really fun. Even the TSA agents are nice. I was very flustered coming to this airport because I had no idea what I was doing and I kept forgetting to do all the things that I know I need to – like take off my flip-flops, take off my belt, take off my sweatshirt – and rather than snap at me like I’ve had in other airports, they were very kind and said it was fine. Maybe it’s because the line for security can’t be very long since there just isn’t the room for it, maybe it’s because coming to this airport is like traveling to a happier time, or maybe Long Beach is just lucky. Whatever the reason I have found a new place that makes me happy.

  1. I am entirely in love with the Long Beach airport. I flew from Long Beach to New York, non-stop in May, and it was the most amazing experiene of my flying life. Love it!

  2. The airport in long Beach is like a step back in time. You get the feel of being at an airport in the early 60’s. I think I like it cause it takes me back to a simpler time. I’m not saying the 60’s were better, just simpler. As I get older I look back with fondness. I’m sure I didn’t really enjoy it back then. I guess that is the privilege of getting older. I can live with that.

  3. I was actually just at the airport in Long Beach and I will admit, regardless of how much I loathe airport security, TSA policies, and pretty much everything airport related, the Long Beach airport experience is a lot nicer than most.
