    Grab a meal at the Subway in the Z gate area before taking the monster truck over to the D gates. Shorter lines = faster +better service.

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

    It's quicker than it has been in the past. The train system is nice. It's on 4 minute intervals.

    TSA is a new low. Add at least an hour for standing in lines. If your lucky you'll get a little extra groping from one of them. No tipping please!!

    Lots of walking, but now that they finished the rail connecting gates, it’s better.

    Star Alliance gold members... Check out the Lufthansa lounge in terminal B, especially if you have a first class ticket!

    Get your breakfast at five guys, they cook your eggs when you order, not the eggy masses that sit under an orange light all morning like other spots

    Diamond Lane has become overflow lane and special assistance lane. It can be a nightmare especially if TSA is only running one xray lane.

    The airport is really large, but the signage will keep you moving in the right direction without having to stop.

    Flying out of Terminal C? Be sure to give yourself an extra 2 hours for the walk between the train & gates.

    Will finally become a viably convenient airport for DC-area residents once Metro line is finished. Until then, enjoy the long drive.

    This place is ridiculous to navigate. Make sure you have plenty of time between flights to take a tram, a sub, and 20 escalators!

    If the security lines by the baggage claim area are too long and you don't have many bags, someone usually comes by and takes you to the employee checkpoint instead. :-)

    Trying to pick people up at the arrival gates can be frustrating. The airport police don't consistently enforce posted directions and rules.

    Was never able to leave the gates, and because of that, my visit to Dulles was boring as hell. Was in the C section of the gates and it was just blah. That being said, hope to have a better trip here.

    INSANELY spread out. Give yourself +30-40 minutes. Shuttle to tram to this weird elevated bus on the Tarmac. I walked over 1.6 miles from door to plane.

    Poorly planned layout. After a long construction period, travelers still need to walk a mile to get to their terminals. Airport workers are rude and don't care to help travelers even basic directions.

    If you're flying out of C, D, or Z and have some time, take the train to A or B for better food/shopping options.

    If you have to go from a terminal to d32 or vice versa, you better have a lot of time or run your ass!

    Nice. The C/D terminal needs to be rebuilt because it is too small for the huge numbers of passengers using the C/D terminal.

    Hit up the motion sensing tangram puzzle in concourse A. Hint: it is not a touchscreen, it tracks your hand movements. Fun times waiting for delayed planes.

    People here are incredibly rude and racist - from united premier to premier security. They picked out every single colored person for extra screening + let every white person through.
