    i have a few questions the game is at 5:15 i know that there is no real way of telling how long it will take but heres my quesion im thinking about flying in for the game well actually i am flying in but i was wondering 1 how long it usually take to drive from the Q to the san diego airport 2. do they usually have taxis at the stadium ? i can try a flight leaving 930pm from san diego probably have to leave the beginning of the 4th quarter i would like to get that flight what time would i have to leave from the q 830? and do you think its possible to get there by 9 also does the trolley run during the game i can take a trolley a few stops and then catch a taxi also? input would help it would save me a night in a hotel car rental etc..... thanks marc

    Dude, have you flown recently?

    You need to get to the airport at least 2 hours before your flight leaves. So if you want to take a flight leaving at 9:30pm, you'd have to get there at 7:30 pm. Meaning you'd probably have to leave the game around, I dunno, 6:30pm to make sure you got there on time. So you'd see all of about an hour of the game.

    FWIW a Hertz rental car may be your best bet, turning in their cars takes less then 5 minutes and less then 10 minutes from there to your terminal. Preprinting your ticket and a lack of check-in luggage will speed up the process. If you don't know the route from the Q to the rental car return you may want to do a dry run. Also park near an exit at the Q. At that time of night I would suggest getting to the rental car drop-off 60-70 minutes before your flight. 60 minutes may be pushing it. The minimum for clearing security is 30 minutes before take-off, however I don't know if it is enforced at SAN.

    p.s. Double check your rental car for personal items.

    Cheers, and GO CHARGERS!

    edit: SAN is a effecient airport, without check-in bags you'll be fine.

    If you left the stadium around the beginning of the 3rd quarter you should be able to get to the airport with a little time to spare. If I was coming that far for a game, I'd want to stay for the whole thing, soak in the athmosphere...and the "scenery"...it is southern California after all. It might be worth it to get a room near the stadium and fly out Monday.

    Either way, welcome to San Diego and enjoy the game!

    Go Chargers!!!
