    Use the water bottle refillers next to the water fountains. They're automatic and quite magical!

    Stand on the right, walk on the left - escalators and moving walk ways. Just like driving - slow right, pass on left. Thanks.

    At security, choose a middle line. They go 3x faster than edges where TSA spends half time checking, half time herding people..

    Looking for coffee/breakfast? Go to Potbelly! You can get coffee at Intelligentsia and a solid breakfast sandwich. You might think you can find something better, but trust me, you won't.

    Other than not having Pre-Check and no Sky Club, this airport is better run and a better design then Ohare. It also has way better food options and great customer service.

    Concourse A "Free wifi" is slow and tries to force you into paid Boingo after 30 minutes. Food is sparse before 6am and after 9pm when many budget travelers are stuck there.

    Get a giant hot dog in the food court between terminals A and B. Walk it off by skipping the moving walkways!

    They need to change the positioning of their signs because it’s complicated to navigate through the airport.

    Don't eat at millers. Horrific seating. No room for purse let alone bags. Floors filthy nasty. World famous ribs. Meh. I'm not a negative person just trying to save others from our experience.

    This place is a culinary void. The food is gross. The hot dog place was decent the people were nice in the end it's a hotdog on a dry bun.

    TSA is the slowest of any airport I've been to. The wifi is also only free for 15 minutes.
