Hollywood Burbank Airport (BUR, formerly known as Bob Hope) is the small airport that also serves the greater Los Angeles area, namely more convenient for Pasadena/Glendale/Valley area. This is the airport you want to fly into if you’re headed to LA. I cannot stress this enough, bypass the pit of despair that is LAX (unless of course you’re international, then of course, vaya con dios).
There are two terminals, A and B. A serves Southwest, JetBlue and American with 9 gates and B has 5 serving Alaska, Delta and United.
There’s not much to eat here, but there is Guy Fieri Burger and a Peet’s coffee, and really what more do you need in life?
