    Free AT&T WiFi, but don't try to do too much...signal is spotty. Good luck finding an outlet to charge your devices.

    The new Dulles is so much better than the old Dulles, it was worthy of a tip. Security 3x faster than before. Less chaos.

    Not a big fan of IAD! Takes forever to get to from DC and once here it takes forever more to get to the gate! DCA is the way to go!

    30 minutes to get from economy parking to security + 30 mins to get thru security + 15 mins to get to your gate. Yeah, plan to arrive 2 hours prior to your flight.

    Diamond security, opens just before 5 am- right by arrival gate 5. Quick through security.

    First time flying US Air out of Z gates. No food or drink other than Subways (yuck!) but they're just past security (seating is limited though).

    Free wifi. Avoid united airlines. Leave plenty of time to get to your gate - you will need it.

    Horrible. Security lines are long & disorganized-even if you have Premier privileges-and once you finally get thru, you have to take a tram and then walk the length of a marathon to get to your gate.

    The 5A bus to D.C. from IAD starts running an hour earlier than the Washington Flyer on weekends. And is cheaper.

    Avoid the new train. Takes easily twice as long as the moving lounges through D. iAd is blowing it!

    This airports customs area is worse than a 3rd world country. I have never seen anything more disorganized. Hundreds of people missed flights today needlessly because of it.
