On a personal note, I will probably find myself on this flight sometime in the next year. I love Norwegian, but I hate driving to Oakland Airport. The primary drawback for me is the arrival time of 4:30pm in SFO still puts me in weekday rush hour traffic for the drive south to Monterey. I’ll have to plan for a Sunday return flight.
