    United airlines may have 6000 flights a day but they have the oldest planes and the oldest crew. Fly Virgin.

    Terrible experience at Dulles on two separate occasions...1.5hr queue for passport control on arrival and then 1.5 hr queue for security on departure. Not a developed world experience by far...

    Avoid United Airlines, enormous delays are their norm and they obviously couldn't care less. Very depressing after a long haul flight to face 2-3 hour delays on your connection.

    This airport is old and lacks a lot in the way of space and amenities.

    Diamond security checkpoint downstairs in baggage claim (between carousels 8 and 10) often has shorter lines.

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

    You're lucky if your flight leaves from Concourse B. A, C, and D are simply the most depressing environments of any airport.

    Plan to arrive 2 hours at least prior to a domestic flight. Security lane in the early morning is a mess! A dozen of flights are scheduled at 8:17 am!

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

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

    Avoid if possible, especially if you have status. Premier line only begins after you wait 30 minutes in the general line. Clearly the people who planned the beltway work here as well.

    Elite members avoid east end of security checkpoint ...they queue up everyone upstairs and wait to go downstairs (status or no status) :( :(

    Tip: If you're riding in coach class, then please don't use your Louis Vuitton luggage... It makes you look funny. Save your money and use your Coach brand luggage.

    Even if you have priority status or first class status, expect to wait in long security lines.

    I still like the people mover! I feel as though I have to walk a country mile when taking the train.
