    Not impressed with the airport. Very few shops stay open 24hours so if you have an overnight flight, you're screwed. There are charging stations which is a plus, but definitively not enough.

    Those huge shuttles transporting people in between terminals are pretty awesome. Theyre like a hybrid between a train and a bus.

    Don't buy from the newsstand (apparently named "newsstand") by baggage claim #4. Mixed nuts, jerky, and a water for over $15. Gfy.

    The silver line bus to Whiele-Reston East Station leaves just outside door 4. Takes about 15 min and costs $5.

    Frankly, the old people movers are faster to C gates than the new train. Take it if you can.

    If you're in concourse B, there's a chipotle. Or if your flight is delayed and need to unwind, go to vino volo for some wine.

    BA Galleries Lounge closed for renovation. BA and Priority Pass use lounge across from Gate B-44. Opens hour earlier than LH at Gate B-51

    Home away from home. Use Gate Guru app to find shops, restaurants near your gate.

    This airport is huge so budget extra time. The upside is that you can go almost anywhere in the world from this hub.

    Be VERY careful if you have a close connection late at night here coming from out of country. They seem ill-equipped to deal both at Immigration and TSA. Almost missed my flight w/ 1.5 hrs.

    Second only to maybe Philly INTL for grossest airport in the country. Trash and grime on everything. Unidentified stickum on the seats. Unacceptable.

    Leave lots and lots of time to clear security. It's very slow. The train doesn't go to the D terminal and doesn't really go to C either, it goes a couple hundred yards past and you have to walk back.

    Vino volo at B gates is a nice wine bar. Menu is better than BA lounge.

    I would not use this airport again. CBP staff are beyond rude and entitled. They act as if visitors are up to something and woe betide you if you are anything but 100% impressed with their authority.

    No a/c, super hot and it took forever to get to the far D gates. The train dropped me at the beginning of the C gates and so you have to walk all of the C and D gates with no moving walkways

    If you're on gate D, you'll still have to deal with the "people movers". Aside from that, the train system they have is okay.

    If you need to get between A1-A6 and C28, take the peoplemover/shuttle (that says its just for D) rather than the train. Far faster.

    Southwest terminal is tricky. It's in "section" 1 of the four in the only departure terminals. Then it's literally on the back of the area facing the tarmacs, behind the other check in desks.

    Traveling with a furry friend? Dulles International Airport has 5 locations for pet relief. These fun locations have K-9 grass, a white picket fence, and a fake fire hydrant.

    Don't fly through here. Although, be sure and try the Chipotle breakfast menu! Only location in US that has it.
