    Really a very nice airport. Kind of overcrowded at security, but the line moves pretty fast and the staff here are super nice - a huge contrast with the staff at O’Hare!

    I love this airport. It is magically quite somehow. Even though it's busy, it's not noisy at all. Very nice for getting work done. And free WiFi. And of course, good coffee. :)

    Head to the Central Terminal's streetscape scene w/ shops & food court. Check out the glass curtain w/ airfield views. Sit in the rocking chairs, connect to free WiFi, & watch planes land & take-off.

    A couple years ago I suggested they bring pettable dogs to help manage stress and boredom. I just saw a wonderful 7 yr old golden retriever demonstrating hi-5’s and I suddenly felt so much better!

    If you are looking for food and good wine at the airport try Vino Volo. Awesome service, good food, good wine, great ambiance..

    Using the light rail to get downtown is super easy. It's a bit of a walk from the terminal, but the signage is good and it's all through the parking ramp, so it's covered.

    Massive airport, you can find everything and anything inside. Unfortunately terminal S (international) lacks options when it comes to the food court, specially early in the mornings or late at night.

    Grab coffee at Café Vita (C3) and some world-famous mac & cheese at the adjacent Beecher's. Pick up some 90s swag at Sub Pop. Then sit in the atrium and watch a live local band. Perfection.

    If you’re here on a connection, take the extra time to check your gate and the map as soon as you land. It can be pretty far from S or N to A,B,C concourses, so make sure your gate didn’t change.

    The train between concourses A, B & S is pretty good. Frequent, fast and you don’t need to go through security a 2nd time when changing concourses. 🚊

    Take the LINK Rail if you are going to the downtown. The station is just a little walk from the airport and the walkway is completely covered (you walk through the parking garage).

    Please remember that the ground & gate agents are there to help you as much AS POSSIBLE. Behave like an adult and treat them with respect. There are other people traveling besides just you.

    Super cool when you ask for a seat upgrade. Ask repeatedly until your will overpowers that of the attendants. Thank me later.

    A lot live music at this airport, free WI-FI and good food options around the airport. Short walks to one side of Terminal to other (approx 20 mins max at a steady pace) if needed.

    Be sure to try @IvarsClam, located in the central terminal, it's pretty fishy...but in a good way. ;)

    For the military with a long layover. Especially if you have family traveling with you. They have the BEST USO and USO support in 28 years. I had a 15 hour layover, they gave me outstanding service

    There’s street-pricing in the shops and restaurants, which means prices—even on a cup of coffee—can’t exceed what you'd pay at the same shop in town Read more

    Park away from here at MasterPark or the like. Great place to catch a bit or relax before a flight though. Arrive early on the weekend or fall victim to traffic and long long lines!

    Sea-Tac had some of the best Seventies public art in its open spaces. The podium-controlled light wall was a favorite. Public wifi and access to Sound Transit light rail into Seattle are available. Read more

    Get a window seat on the right side of the plane if you can. You'll get to see lakes and beautiful mountains! One of the most scenic plane ride I've had :)

    Food courts at the S gates are limited. Grab a Lemon Loaf & Decaf at Seattle's Finest Coffee kiosk, or do a takeaway from the restaurant in front of it as there's a wait time of 20 mins for seating.

    Spam musubi from Hachi-ko (formerly Waji) at C Gate is the best food deal at Sea-Tac, hands down. Meat & rice, compact, costs 99 cents, and you can ask for it heated up.

    One of the best airports in my book, from the art, layout, shops & restaurants and lounges. The best gateway to Asia from the US.

    One of the few airports where bathroom doors swing out, not in, and if you travel a lot on your own, you definitely know why that's awesome!

    Seattleites will loath me, but Ivar's clam chowder at the airport is my soul food every time I fly out. As for the airport itself, it's big, confusing, and it's unchanged since the 90s, but I like it.

    Alaska Airlines check-in for First Class usually has a line of four to five people with one agent checking in bags and tickets so might be worth it to use the self serve positions for faster check-in!

    The cheapest way to get out of here is to take the skybridge to the light rail. If you will be here for a week and take any transit, buy an orca card at the station.

    One of the nicest restrooms in SeaTac is one of the least obvious - past the Baggage Claim carousels, down a ramp. Spacious with cool wall tile art

    Security usually moves quick, and precheck almost never has a long line. Plan on extra time for N and S terminals. Parking is stupid expensive. Other than that, it’s a solid airport.
