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

    Don't expect to find Starbucks open at 4 a.m. Bring your own coffee!!

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

    Security check before you're allowed in your terminal.

    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

    Very friendly customer service people, and what I read, free wi fi.

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

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

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

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

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

    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.

    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.

    Use curbside check-in. They're awesome, never a line. Don't 4get to tip 'em. 

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

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

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

    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.

    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.

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

    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.

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

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

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

    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.

    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!

    Even a long line here is nothing compared to some of the other airports I have been through

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

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