    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.

    Absolutely the worst airport in terms of assistance for the disabled. Planes load on the tarmac & even though your tickets say, days in advance, that there needs to be a ramp & not stairs, no ramp!

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

    Miss the people movers. Shorter walk in and out of them than the train, especially for Terminal C.

    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.

    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.

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

    Worst thing is having to take a train to the gates AFTER you go through security... never seen anywhere. Even premier access security lines are long. A1 to A5 take forever to reach.. and 4 escalators

    I'm sitting at Dulles at Gate A15. Would be nice to check in via the web when your phone has zero battery.

    A 2013 report from CDC affirmed that the smoking rooms don't work. Smoke leaks out exposing staff an passengers to chronic low levels of secondhand smoke.

    Free WiFi by AT&T; it is a bit slow, but it works. Could not log into the "Dulles" network. Electrical outlet near gate 30.

    Don't rely on the PA in terminal A; be 'that guy' and stand by your gate when they announce 1k and global. Nearly stayed overnight because calling boarding 4 was too much work for the night crew.

    Dulles is far from DC - cabs are stupid expensive. Try the bus, Metro, and/or Washington Flyer. Way cheaper.

    United terminal becomes a zoo at about 2pm. All the international flights begin arriving, and ppl connect to domestic flights. Terminal way too small to handle the large amount of pax

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