    My favorite airport of all. Really do not like big airports.

    Security is extremely quick. I would say take no more than 15 minutes from entering terminal to getting to gate

    Make sure you eat BEFORE you pass Security. It's a deadzone after TSA

    V-8 @ the news stand by Gate 77, and smoked almonds: a traveler's dinner - love it!

    We were here on a layover and had to go through security all over again. Lame. I've never had to do that at any other airport when switching planes.

    Lisa at Air Tran ticket counter is amazing! Her customer service efforts are the reason I continue to fly AirTran from ATL to MCI

    Great for in-and out convenience of travel, but fails in every other category.

    Very odd terminal set up. The busses between the terminals come every 10-15m. Parking seemed average priced.

     rental is clean, fast, easy. Shop for a good rate and you'll likely do better than $ for shuttles.

    Do not get a drink outside your gate. There are drinks once you get inside... But forget about Starbucks if you r in a rush

    Meh. Needs improvement. Very dated airport. When Trump said we have crappy airports, clearly he meant KCI.

    Weird airport. Only 1 small food cart after security around gate 33. And the prices are EXPENSIVE. Paid almost $7 for an orange juice and 1 breakfast bar.

    Don't eat the yogurt granola parfait! It's been irradiated by the x-ray scanner!

    Security check before you're allowed in your terminal.

    For a small airport, it's got a lot of heightened security. Be ready for a body scan and pat-down.

    Very small and only one restaurant in the whole complex!

    Possibly the smallest airport in a major city. Nothing to do but get on the free wifi and surf. Hope it doesn't snow! Food upstairs.

    Like a bus station if a bus station were an airport instead.

    Pack a snack before you head to MCI; the selection may be a little underwhelming...

    American competes with Southwest. Don't forget to click your heels.

    No need to arrive early....hardly any wait. Just don't get stuck here on a layover!

    Nope, there isn't much to do and it feels very small...but that's why you get off your plane and are 100 feet from ground transport - easiest airport around.

    Security screening stations every 5 to 10 gates; very small lines/wait. Big change (for me) versus DIA!

    Bring food because most terminals have limited services.

    Without question, the worst airport in the US. Not enough seating, not enough bathrooms. Want to eat something on a layover? You have to exit security to do so. Avoid if possible.

    Southwest has no free- standing, self-check kiosks here. Make sure to print your boarding pass at home.

    Finding the rental car area was like searching for the Cup of Christ. Signs are bad. Stand outside under the white covered bus stops and take a grey shuttle bus. Good luck!

    Terminal A's food options are mostly *before* security, so plan accordingly.

    Somehow they put the rental cars in the airport and the airport in the rental car counters. And, you're not actually in Kansas so no Dorothy jokes.
