I am also a fellow San Diegan who has heard much of the gripe about the San Diego airport being one of the worst airports worldwide to land at because of that parking garage. It can look intimidating but I have to say that I can think of two other airports that can make a frequent flier cringe, let alone someone who doesnt fly often. How about flying into Las Vegas??

That airport makes you feel like you're landing in the ocean and the plane needs floaties not wheels!
When my husband and I land here in our beautiful city, ( we are SW frequent fliers ) we always sit on the right side and play the game of hide and seek with the garage to try and find our car parked on the roof just to make sure its still there....maybe its our warped sense of humor.
