    Has anyone taken off from SFO Runway 1L (main runway for takeoffs) recently? I understand that SFO's runways are currently under construction but I took off last night from there and it felt like we were driving over a thousand speed bumps at 180mph. It seems to have gotten worse recently. I am sure that it is completely safe but quite alarming for many passengers (myself included) when it feels like the wheels are literally going to fall off of the plane. The pilot did come on the PA after take off and say that there wasn't an issue with the plane, it was the runway.

    Has anyone else noticed this?

    If not and you have any flights out of SFO coming up...enjoy the bumpy ride.

    Remind you of early cold morning departures from O'Hare on a flatted 727?
