    International to national transfers are extremely slow, allow extra time to make your connection.

    Absolutely the worst airport I fly through. One giant cluster-made worse by having to ride these ridiculous "duck mobiles" from terminal to terminal.

    Is it just me, or does the terminal building of IAD look similar to the terminal building of TPE to anyone else?

    From immigration to domestic connecting flights, there's an express lane to the security check on the left side for UA 1st class, global services & crew

    Security here is a well coordinated ballet, but there's a large mix of nationalities, which make for long wait times during rush hours. Be smart and arrive early.

    As someone who lives in Maryland I honestly hate driving to IAD but... The long distance non-stops make up for the misery. #HowQuicklyWeForgetPain #MdPeopleHateDrivingOverTheBridgeToVa

    I really think the people movers were more efficient than the train. Way too many escalators.

    You're lucky if your flight leaves from Concourse B. A, C, and D are simply the most depressing environments of any airport.

    If you're leaving before 5am go to the diamond lane (near baggage claim 8). Regular security line isn't open that early

    The new AeroTrain between terminals is slower than the "mobile lounge" by 10 mins; You can still take the mobile lounge. If in C/D across from gate D14. On the other side between A/B concourse (A8)

    There is no mobile walkways in the concourse. It will be a very long walk from one side to get to the other.

    Go thru security entrance on the lower level, by the arrivals area. The line there is so much faster than the main entrance.

    Avoid the new credential check machines and lines like the plague, significantly slower than having your information checked manually.
