    Try Quicksilver shuttle service into the burbs. Easy, affordable. Simple bookings on-line.

    Very small airport. There are usually no lines going through TSA. Easy in, easy out. Eat before you come. The dining options are very limited.

    Delayed 7 hrs due to weather in ORD. Ate bfst and lunch both at Home Run, one of only 2 choices that weren't fast food. Marginal food both times; rather surly waitstaff to boot.

    Unfortunately, some of the rudest people AFTER security I've encountered in a while. Front staff was friendly an helpful, thank you.

    Stress free for sure. Few options for food. Make sure you hit the bathroom and food before going through security. Security lines are usually 10 people max.

    Public transit: bus 129 brings you to terminal C from 10th & Main in about 1hr on weekdays only; return trip downtown is same or express bus takes 25 min.

    Top of the Crown Grill at gate 57 is great. So glad we have something inside security now!

    Make sure you document where you parked. Wandering long term parking at 10pm isn't as much fun as I make it sound.

    They have added restaurant access behind the gates an improvement, but they still need a new terminal.

    In-a-Tub Tacos, 5 miles south on I-29. You will love the food, but hate yourself.

    Short and stout, just the way airports should be. 20 steps from gate to pickup.

    Vegetarians beware! The only things you can eat in the Southwest terminal are peanuts/trail mixes/chips, fruit, and pastries/bagels. Drink selection is pretty decent though.

    This is a pretty small airport and easy to navigate. I wasn't here long, but it would have been nice to have wifi while I was waiting to board my flight.

    Use the bathroom before you go through security since there are only about three stalls for women once you're inside

    Lines are the shortest I've ever seen. Taxis do not exist. Plan for a fast entrance/exit and a car.

    If you think you might be hungry or thirsty when you arrive, be sure to fly during daylight hours only. Al shops apparently close just before dark.

    WiFi is shoddy (depends on gate). Food is limited. But going through security is a breeze...no full body xray machine(terminal c gates 65+)!!!

    The garage parking rates is bullshit. It used to be free for the first 30 minutes. Now it's $1. Had if I know that, I would have bought some cash with me.

    I fly from New York, LA, Miami, Atl. and everywhere. KCI has the most anal security in the country! Like a terrorist would jack a plane here! The rest of the world would not hear about it for month!

    Most food is outside of security but there is the KC Grill upstairs inside the terminal. Confusing but good to find it

    Picking someone up? Quit circling and park in Economy Lot A while you wait for their call. First hour of parking there is free.

    This airport does one thing well. If you fly in, with carry on only, and are catching a car/cab, then you can be plane-to-road in 60 seconds.

    Food options are slim. Easy airport to get around though, and free wi-fi is a bonus.

    Small terminal, very crowded, NO airline or gate support for TSA Pre Check, ie you wait in crowded lines with everyone else. Get there 90 minutes early!

    Delta is clearly still running DOS. Their computers take ages if you try to change seats, and your soul will slowly crumble as the baggage line fills up in front of you.

    Hold it in. The bathrooms at the rental car facility are far nicer and less crowded than the terminal bathrooms.

    Extremely easy airport, but eat and drink before going through security. Not many options after you become secure.

    A business traveler's nightmare. Straight out of 1950, Non-existent wi-fi unless you sit on the curb, no outlets, no seats, No food inside security on American, the list goes on and on.

    small dinky airport, TSA is harsh at this airport and last year they opened, handled and damaged my sporting shotgun and then denied it. Next time I go to KC I'm driving.

    All I ask out of my airport is a bar by my gate, a comfortable place to sit, a power outlet by said seat, and a bathroom that isn't covered in shit. This airport has none of those things. You lose MCI

    I recommend flying from kci, because the busses here don't go where you want.

    Nothing really good about this airport. Really cramped with no where to sit when busy. Also really no place to sit and grab a bite to eat while you wait for your plane.

    This airport is horrible. Each gate has its own security which means once in you have almost no access to bathrooms or food. Who designed this awful concept? Even bad pre-TSA!

    Stuck here on a layover.I feel like a caged animal. I can see restaurants but can't get there w/o going through security. I do travel a lot and I expect more than a Starbucks and Quiznos past security

    Must be a new development - there are food options after security checkpoint in terminal B (southwest) - Quiznos and Starbucks.
