San Francisco International Airport Reviews
The Philippines has a romantic comedy television series which is trending and ranked as #1 on all the viewer ratings nationwide. The title of the series is “On The Wings Of Love”. It’s a story of Leah, a simple girl with an American dream meeting Clark, a boy living his American life. This series got a lot of tweets this past August 2015 to February 2016. The second to the last episode was shot at the San Francisco International Airport where Leah is leaving her American dream just to be with the one she truly loves.
I know that the series itself doesn’t explain much about the international airport, but thanks to #OTWOL, I was able to learn more about SFO, let us share this information we gathered about San Francisco International Airport.

“Arrived at San Francisco international Terminal at 8am after long flight from Sydney. Quickly through immigration which was well organised with bags appearing a little time later. Selected for customs search which was also quick and courteous. Bag drop queue non existent. Through pre TSA at T3 without delays.
