When I heard there was a rhesus monkey that somehow got loose in the San Antonio airport, I thought to myself, that’s so San Antonio. He was probably just jonesing for some Raising Cane’s (IMO, the best food vendor in the airport).
One of the fastest growing cities in the US, San Antonio is a strange place, often overshadowed by its hip neighbor Austin. It seems to be a nice place to live and work, and for some reason there are always conferences there. I myself, have been to San Antonio several times and thus have passed through the airport where said monkey wreaked havoc yesterday.
Located about 8 miles from downtown/River walk, this airport has 24 gates split into two terminals. Terminal A offers service from Aeromexico, Alaska, Allegiant, Air Canada, American, Delta, Frontier, and Southwest. Terminal B serves American and United flights and there’s a USO for the large military presence in SA.
