    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.
