I'm currently at San Francisco airport (SFO), traveling to Long Beach (LGB) for a quick vacation.
My habit is to get to the airport fairly early, if only to avoid traffic and the stress of maybe-running-late or getting stuck in mid-morning traffic. (Once upon a time I used to cut it close--then I realized that the whole panicked run to the airport was a stressor in and of itself, so I just gave it up.)
But now that I'm here, I'm struck that the international terminal where my airline, JetBlue, is housed, seems peculiarly quiet. It looks like my flight is the only one out of here in the morning!
Which makes me think about airline traffic in/out of SFO in general. And that gives me my Search Challenge for the week. Without having actually tried to do this myself, I wonder:
Can you find how many scheduled flights
depart from SFO on an average weekday?
To make this question possible, don't worry about irregular flights (e.g., private planes, net-jet flights, CIA airplanes, etc.)
Can you figure it out?
