    Trying to pick people up at the arrival gates can be frustrating. The airport police don't consistently enforce posted directions and rules.

    This airport must be the reason why people advise to arrive three hours before international flights. Difficult to get to, slow lines once you do, and long distances to gates.
  • Dirk B.
    The transport between the gates and the main terminal is surprising.

    Definitely the best of the US airports. You don't have to redo security if you have a connecting flight and lots more facilities in the terminal.

    The airport is what you would call 1960's futuristic. The facility was intended for usage of mobile lounges but now has been converted into a facility much like airports of today.

    The "mobile lounges" need to go. There's nothing worse than being the first off a flight only to get dumped out into one of these infernal diesel-fume-filled relics that waits 20+ minutes to leave.

    Beautiful airport. It's located in Virginia, and is very far (~25 miles) from DC. I'd recommend taking an Uber/Lyft to Central DC.

    One of the easier hubs to transfer planes because signs are clear and you don't have to walk a mile. The smaller jets fly out of Gates A1A-A1G, which is labeled as A1 on the map.

    Leave lots and lots of time to clear security. It's very slow. The train doesn't go to the D terminal and doesn't really go to C either, it goes a couple hundred yards past and you have to walk back.

    If arriving on an ESTA with a passport previously used with ESTA, using machines = much quicker immigration process. Baggage handling is often slow. Your bag may appear on the floor next to the belt.
