    If you haven't been to terminal B're in for a pleasant surprise!!! Skip the food choices when going through security if you're going to gates 31 and below.

    Walking between terminal could take a bit of time. Make sure you allow about 15-20 min of walk

    Terminal E has the best United Lounge. Always clean, quiet and friendly!

    When dropping someone, park at the day off site garages for $4 instead of the airport garage. It saves money and the aggravation of driving in airport traffic.

    Business traveler power move: if you're flying United Express and qualify for TSA precheck, use terminal C and take train over to B to save time. Bonus: better food choices in C than in B.

    The airport is really easy to navigate and you can get from one gate to another in 1/2 an hour... customs/security not included of course

    NO where to charge electronics. The few charging stations had lines of people waiting to charge their phones. No wall outlets because they think the few charging stations are enough?! Ridiculous!

    Make sure you take a picture of your parking information in the parking garage (located on a nearby column) to help you out when you get back from your trip!

    You can find Blue Bell ice cream in the Rocky Mountain candy shop in terminal C. True taste of Texas. Yum.

    If departing out of concourse C and running late, go through the E concourse instead. There is almost never a wait and has saved me today and other days. Once through security take tram or walk to C.

    ATTENTION ALL VISITORS: When in terminal E, you must eat at Pappasitos. Anything else is a blatant insult to this city of delicious food.

    Give yourself ample connection time here. You'll walk your legs off between terminals and the Sky Train went out while I waited for it. Only made flight because it was delayed even then I was last.

    The airport is split into quads: North, South, East, and West. Family/friend passenger pick up in at the North Entrance.

    Don't show up late, you won't make it through the TSA line. Get there early and grab something to eat at Papadeaux's Seafood.

    Good thing? Free wifi. Very 'user friendly', just find the maps. Bad thing? Restrooms are filthy

    Gate E16 has an outlet to the left of the gate door. Great for us with laptops that have low batteries. Also if you use Firefox connect to Boingo wifi, it just downloads exe without installing. :-) Read more

    Best way to check-in for B Gates is to go through Security at the A Terminal, Security line is shorter, you can grab a drink at Starbucks after Security, & then take Inter-Terminal Train to B Gates.

    Welcome to the worst typography in airport signage: Fake small caps. Embossed letters. Drop shadows. And if you argue that’s for contrast, you wouldn’t set white letters on a murky green background!

    When there is just one YES agent at Terminal E, he alternates between the Elite queue and the non Elite queue, so there is not necessarily any advantage to getting into the Elite queue.

    Huge airport! Be prepared to take a tram if you are connecting flights. Don't recommend making layovers less than an hour especially as several carriers have poor on time records.

    Passenger-laden carts careen through each terminal with speeds normally reserved for jets. Listen for the loud, if half-hearted warning shouts by cart drivers to prevent certain doom while ambling by.

    Bring snacks if you have a short layover. All of the good food is in the center and quite a hike from the terminals.

    Try the fish tacos and abundant electrical outlets at Urban Crave outside of C33. A good find for an airport.
  • Julia Victoria  🇮🇹👑
    I am ashamed about the long kilometrique queue at the passport control. Prepare yourself to wait minimum 1,5 hours (overpassing not honestly the other people) before to catch your connecting flight.

    Phones in Terminal C by baggage claim that you can use that will dial many hotels in the area if you need a place to stay.

    If you're on continental, And check in at terminal C, but your gate is in E, don't walk from C security, take the escalator next to it for the shortcut to E, open from 5a til 11a
