    The business lounge is actually killer, and the wi-fi is great. I worked there for 3 hrs no problem.

    Hopefully JetBlue will someday have ERJ190 flights out of here to it's JFK hub for easy connections to westbound flights?

    Do not fly from this airport unless you absolutely have to. Flights are always delayed or cancelled. I've missed so many international flights and have had so many cancellations. Fly from NYC instead.

    Lots of sandwich choices at Brioche--ham & Brie with apple slices is a winner--but ask for a fresh sandwich from the back. The ones on display looked a little wilted on the edges.

    Tip to the Albany airport review how buffalo handles security. Similar size airport way better security set-up. Passengers, while in line ponder the question, why aren't all the lines open?

    Have breakfast at Brioche or Micky D, at least you can get a toasted something. Nothing at Starbucks except sugar. Would kill for kale, green apples and lime drink! Next airport.

    This is a small airport with a narrow TSA screening. Be prepared for a wait even if you're TSA Pre. Chill at the Hudson Valley Bar after TSA.

    In 2014 the security line still is incredibly long for early morning flights. Don't assume that because your flight leaves at 6am and it is a small airport that the line will be short.

    Since my last visit in May 2013, they've added a TSA Pre✔️ line. You still have to wait in the "main" line tho so give yourself plenty of time! :)

    Super cheap parking. Easy in easy out. Compared to JFK and LGA this place is amazing and fast. For those who complain try flying out of the city a few times and paying 30bucks a day to park.

    If you're flying in the winter time, just expect your flight to get delayed. Hopefully you only have carry on luggage... If not, good luck...

    Small airport but very efficient! Not many stores to browse if you flight is delayed but it is very comfortable and you don't really notice the lack of airline clubs. Many places to sit and plug in.

    Whoever claims that an hour is enough time to deal with this airport is dead wrong. 45 min line (at 6am on a Sunday) for SW bag check and 30 - 40 min line for security. You will miss your flight.

    The TSA experience at this airport is terrible (even worse than SEA). After standing in a 30 minute queue line (because they can't staff appropriately), they refused to accept my web boarding pass.

    No frequent flier line. No premier access line. One line. And most likely one TSA lane open for all fliers. Prepare to wait so give yourself plenty of time.

    The delta check in app isn't working at the scanners at the security check in! Get a paper slip so you are NOT delayed. The agents told me it was down for about a week as of 2/3/2013.
