    Everything is different with a grill pub inside security?

    Make sure to grab a bite to eat before going through security because there isn't anything past security.

    Get something to eat before coming here. Crap food and drink selections. My least favorite airport- dumbest layout ever.

    Be sure to not leave Kansas City without visiting Jack Stack. Get Fiorella's Jack Stack Barbecue KC All Purpose Rub.

    One of the worst airports for a 3-hour layover, especially when crowded!

    Don't bother following the signs to ground transportation (rental cars) - just go outside to the median and find the shuttle.

    Welcome to the biggest small airport in the world! Do anything that needs to be done before security.

    Not exactly world class. Free wi-fi. If you are connecting, be careful not to accidentally walk out of the secured area as the terminals are narrow. Food selection is crap.

    Plan ahead. You're probably going to wait half an hour for a shuttle from Lot B if your flight is before 8 am.

    If you have a connecting flight, don't leave the gate areas or else you have to go through a long line of security again!

    Use economy parking for cheapest deal, $7/day and shuttles come every 5-10 minutes

    Not a lot going on in this airport which gives the TSA agents a great excuse to go on power trips for the tiny gates they manage.

    The "free wifi" keeps disconnecting. Airport is tiny. The restroom next to Gate 37 at Southwest terminal is tiny too. Only 2 stalls

    Concourse area is very small and narrow. Not much in terms of food and drink inside the gate area.

    In terminal C, if you're flying out of gates 87-90, the only food/drink past security is vending machines.

    Rental Car: rent with National- workers there 24/7 to help with your check out. Went with Enterprise this time- desk closed, no one there with no instructions for cars, terrible experience.

    There is limited food after Southwest security and there are security lines despite what others have said. That being said, this place was not designed well, particularly for a post-9/11 world.

    If on a layover from Chicago, make sure to grab front seats quick! People get feisty.

    Private security and lack of food options doesn't make this the best airport to have ground time

    22$ for basically curbside parking. Can't beat it.

    Faster security than most airports. Layout is hella weird though.

    Put everything in your pockets in your carry on bag to get through the security line more quickly

    Use the restroom before going through security. There are limited stalls once you get into the terminal.

    Hands down, rudest TSA. Girl with the eyebrows needs to check herself.

    Security is based on gate groupings (ex. Gates 56-60) which makes things easier and cuts down on line lengths.

    You can now go the the restroom after you go through security! Good job Kansas City!

    If you have a layover here you have to go back through security. Brilliant design, Kansas.

    Long flowy skirt--> extra security pat down. The price of traveling in both style and comfort

    This place needs a place for massages especially for layovers or just waiting on your flight.

    Check your flight status before you leave for the airport and if available, sign-up for airline mobile apps or email alerts to keep up-to-speed on flight delays and changes.

    If you take Alaska, be warned there are no bathrooms past security. Absolutely despise this airport!

    Try to get a seat near your gate, the periodic announcements sometimes overwrite the boarding announcements

    If you're on a connecting, don't be an idiot and leave the checkpoint. If you do, you'll be going back through security to catch your plane.

    Security lines are short here: do yourself a favor & eat outside your gate area to save money.

    Power outlets are few and far between. Make friends with someone with a power strip.

    It's 2012. Get corporate-sponsored charging stations. No one should still have to search for the outlets used for third-shift vacuuming.

    you can wait till then. The empty fields surrounding the airport is where it will be built. I can't wait till they break ground!

    It is a killer drive from Wichita. I thought I would save some money, but by the time you pay for parking and gas to drive up not sure. Security is a breeze to get through. No food service at the gate

    There is a small concession by gate 60 so you can get refreshments or snacks . Attendant does not smile.
