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

    Restrooms, inside security are small, not clean, frequently out of service equipment. Not representative for international airport

    Why they want to change this airport is beyond me! Most convenient mid-major airport in the country to get in/out of. I hope the new terminal gets voted down!!!

    There actually is food (mini-Quiznos, other snacks, beer, etc) beyond the security gates, at least in Terminal B.

    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.

    Changes going on with American & US Air put the ticketing FAR away from gates

    In Terminal B there a total of two toilets. Really just two. And two urinals and one sink that works between the only two bathrooms. Beijing has better facilities. Sprite is $2.49.

    If your flight is delayed look up. You can usually find a bird or two!!

    The Quizno's stand inside terminal B (if you are flying southwest) is after the security check in and has breakfast Sammies - if you forgot to get food before you went in, this is a good option.

    When going through Southwest security stay to the right to avoid body scanner delays. Metal detectors are much easier and faster!

    Security is super strict here. They will find ALL your liquids, and throw out any over 3oz.

    Use Park Air Express for parking at KCI. If you use it once, you'll never use anything else again. Promise.

    Cruise for babes at the Chili's Too. Don't ask questions, just do it. It's gonna be great.

    Possibly the worst designed airport. I feel sorry for anyone who has a connecting flight since you'll probably have to go back through security. Oh, and no wifi (at least in terminal c).

    This airport is horrible, but what choice have you got? No air problems = delays. Food courts run out of food. You have to go through security again if you land here. Extremely ghetto.

    The priority line is not staffed in the early morning (6 am). Prepare to come early

    Southwest seating is totally useless. None of the powered seats actually have power. I tried 6 different power towers by Gate 40. I remember why I quit flying Southwest! They suck!

    This airport is horrible! And the doors that say "Do Not Exit, Alarm Will Sound" is indeed where you exit! But a security guard has to let you out before you can leave! Layout sux too!

    You can easily leave the secure area without intending to. The exit isnt as clearly marked as it could be.

    The grass is not greener on the other side of security. Whatever u have to do, do it before entering.

    Flying Southwest? Checking a bag? Be prepared to carry your bag to the TSA location next to the customer service desk.

    No lounges, beware. But it’s quaint and the lines are short.

    This place is a hole!!! The only thing that would complete the MCI experience would be livestock roaming the terminal! Time for some tax dollars to go to work Kansas City!!!

    There is no food available in the terminal, except a wimpy cart. Bring snacks, come prepared.

    Small airport....Avoid layovers here. No skyclub in the B Concourse... literally 3 steps from security are the gates.

    When TSA attempts to body search you, get really excited and take off your pants on the spot.

    Avoid any change over here!!! Your food options suck, you have to go out of the secure area to get to any food other than Quiznos... Then once out you have a choice of Sbarros or burger king :( bleak!

    Eat before coming to the airport! And of you didn't, then eat what there is before going through security. At least this goes for the terminal where one finds American Airlines...

    There is a food kiosk in gates 67-69. Unfortunately Starbucks is before security. Fast check in and security check.
