    They have water bottle filling stations inside the secure area. Dump the fluid, keep the container with you.

    Friendly advice: moving walkways are not prime locations to take group selfies. Don't be that group of assholes who block the entire walkway, or don't be pissed when people walk right through you.

    Never too crowded. Fast to get through it and good food courts. If you are into chicken wings you find Anchor Bar!

    Small airport that is easy to get around. I love the fact that the rental cars are on site and right across from baggage. Easy at the anchor bar to complete your experience.

    Smaller airport. Usually moves pretty quickly. Flights are usually on time unless there's a blizzard. Quite a bit of things to do inside the airport. They've filled the space nicely!

    If you're coming in the winter for a short weekend away, it's worth the premium for covered parking. With lake effect snow, you don't want to come home to find your car buried.

    Really a great option for close border Canadians. Even if you use premium onsite parking it's still cheaper than Toronto and airfare is better 90% of the time. Security is a breeze in the am.

    This might be the only airport in the world without a Starbucks. Not even a Caribou. If you are desperate, there is a Coffee Beanery just inside security.

    Rather small airport but security doesn't take very long. While it's an international airport, there aren't many international flights, mainly Canada...
