    Gate C28, someone hacked a wireless router and made it open. Free wifi if you don't mind the how. ATT is quite available.

    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.

    Shared cab service is excellent. Cabbie drops you to the door and does not ask for a tip.

    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.

    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.

    Want to see happy? Go to baggage claim 15 and watch the international flight reunions and the kids play with racial blindness and kindness.

    So instead of having a mono rail, Dulles has military grade transport vehicles.

    The shuttle from A to D is a bit archaic. Where is the actual tram/train or anything that looks like an army tanker.

    To print your united boarding pass - Go to Ground level - you have kiosks there near the exit (close to the hotel phones)

    Most confusing airport ever. No signage. Lots of aimless roaming from one end to the other.

    Beware gates 6A. There are six of them A-D but only two entrances labeled 1 and 2. And no where that lists the destination!

    US Air has all of terminal Z. TSA PreCheck and a US Air flight from Z make Dulles a tolerable experience.

    Opt Out! The backsetter X-rays in use here have been banned in Europe and elsewhere for many health risks including risk of cancer.
