I will be travelling for business in May, and I am being given a choice of flying into LAX or SNA. While Santa Ana is closer to the venue, LAX is giving me a better choice of flight schedules. I will be picked up and dropped off at the airport, so I don't have to worry about transportation. Is there a reason I should avoid one or the other? I recall flying through LAX on my way to China, but I don't think I've ever flown into either of these airports. Any horror stories out there that can help color my decision?
