    Sleep in a little longer for early flights - airline counters open at 4:15am and security at 4:30am

    Very limited options if you want to eat on a layover. If you are on Southwest, save yourself the time and go to the Pork&pickle. You wont have to leave the TSA area. I really don't like this airport.

    Get everything done before you get through security; including restroom visit, the facilities after security are very poor.

    Park Air Express is "valet" service for only $7 a day. Great service and great price, sincerely. Got me to switch from The Parking Spot.

    The good? Free Wi-Fi! The bad? All the restaurants and concession stands are outside of the secure area so you have to go out and come back in if you're hungry. Terrible layout for layover passengers.

    If you need a cab you have to pick up the pay phone at one of the exits. They'll assign you a driver and pick you up at that terminal.

    FYI you have to exit secure area for restaurants and bars. Plan accordingly!

    Make sure to bring your own straw. They sell BBQ sauce by the bottle here so you can get your last minute fix.

    Fly Southwest A-list. You'll walk from your car to your plane in under 10 minutes.

    There is beer at NW end of gate area. Ask someone if you can't find it. Try the local brew. Not bad.

    Avoid the Starbucks in the United Airlines terminal!! Morning rush and they have one person working! Idiocy!!

    Leave enough time to park, hop on the shuttle, and check in. It can be kind of crazy if you are running late...

    Here's a tip: if you board last, don't crowd the gate, it makes it difficult for everyone.

    In C Terminal the food choices are all poor and beyond security it's even worse. If you're one of the folks who rave about the convenience, you obviously don't fly my airline.

    There are 2 places to eat once you clear security. Take the elevator.

    Worst. Airport. Ever. Get ready to go through security again if you jaw to use the bathroom. I'll avoid layovers here in the future.

    If you're flying Delta on an early morning flight, get there *extra* early. The line for baggage drop was more than an hour. A bunch of us didn't make our flight and had to reschedule.

    Make sure you get snacks and souvenirs before going through security because there is not a store past the check point.

    25 ounce bottle of water is $3.10. Price gouging in full effect! Also of you make even the slightest comment to security then you wok get the "full"screening.

    This airport used to be awesome, but the safety regulations changed that. Security is fast but there is little to do in the secure areas.

    If you catching an early bird I advised getting here 2 hours early. To check your bag it takes 30 min

    No TSA Pre line. Make sure you take out all your liquid items and put them on the tray.

    Yes I know our airport sucks I work here. This airport was designed in the late 1960's and opened in 1972. BUT!!! I have good news! They approved a plan to build a new airport in the next 15 years if

    Park Air Express is only $7 for valet parking, one day free by booking online. Dropping car off is painless & their shuttle service is quick.

    Beware of the major food desert once you pass through security! Stare longingly from your gate, but you'll have to ensure security again if you want anything from the "other side."

    Not a great airport for connecting. You have to leave security between most gates. Make sure you check the few gates around you for your next flight before being shuttled out of security.

    If you are dropping off a rental car, plan to arrive an extra 15m early to account for the shuttle transit time.

    Park in circle by entrance to circle parking section 1 if you are waiting for someone to land.

    Worst airport in history. Once your through security you can't get out & there's only 1 Starbucks to get anything. Majority of the time security doesn't take too long but its tight & messy.

    There is food, drinks and even beer inside the gates...not a huge selection, but not as dramatic as the other tips lead you to believe.

    BEWARE!! This place reminds me of Russia. Once you get in the gate area, through security, you're stuck!! No more eateries or Starbucks, just even more extremely over-priced kiosks!

    Where is Caribou, Starbucks, or Dunkin Donuts? No place to buy vittles once you check in at United terminal. Don't come hungry!

    The American Airlines section of the terminal by the gates is about the size of a shoebox. No power-stations, few/no chairs...typical American Airlines customer care. Ugh.
