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

    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.

    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!

    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!

    Is it just me, or does the terminal building of IAD look similar to the terminal building of TPE to anyone else?

    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.

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

    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

    Avoid the regional prop planes from here if at all possible. Always some sort of mechanical issue or incompetent employees.

    Opt out of the pornoscanners. They use the ones that emit ionizing radiation.

    Virtually impossible to gauge how long the security queue is here, can't tell if design is great or poor
