There and Back: Flew from Toronto into Santa Clara. The airport in SC was very clean and fast and we had no problems except the computers went down on the return and we had to go through customs twice. The VIP room wasn't worth the money unless you consider a ham and cheese sandwich and an open bar worth 20...
