Kanye and Kim

Avoid LAX

Fly San Fran to Paris

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian just arrived at San Francisco International Airport, en route to Paris ... and they did exactly what we said they would do ... avoid the paparazzi at LAX.

Kim and Kanye took off from the Van Nuys Airport a few hours ago and landed at SFO.  They're transferring to a commercial flight that will take them nonstop to Paris.

As we first reported, Kanye has been advised by his reps NOT to fly out of LAX, because they don't want another confrontation with photogs while his criminal battery case is pending.

Problem is ... the reps didn't bank on photogs showing up at his house early this AM ... resulting in yet another confrontation.

The paparrazzi at SFO -- not ours -- also shot video of Kanye and Kim, and much like this morning ... they're clearly getting under Kanye's skin.

Also, note to all paps -- if nothing else, pronounce the guy's name right. It's KAHN-YAY.
