    The downstairs Security checkpoint has been closed, but Gate C is the new 'Downstairs' location; no one uses it, and A, B & C connect after security.

    For those that don't know. The downstairs security checkpoint I'd now gone. But there's a new one upstairs for c concourse. A , b and c concourse s are all connected now. The best food options =a

    Remember you should always arrive with plenty of time to check in and get through TSA security. Don't show up at the last minute and and get mad when you miss your flight.

    If the TSA line is long at concourse A & B. go down the hall to concourse C TSA. Lines can often be shorter there.

    Having traveled many times on several airlines, the best tip I can give you is to stick with Southwest!

    If you're checking a bag, GET THERE 2 HRS EARLY. Missed my flight last week b/c I had to wait at check in for 1 hr, & security for .5 hr. No one cares when you tell them you might miss your flight.

    The rocking chairs facing the window as you enter Concourse B make me feel like I'm home, if I had a rocking chair at home.

    No matter what gate you fly out of, go through the security checkpoint at Concourse B-52 lines much shorter and you have access to both sections of gates

    Pay for early bird check-in, get on and off the plane right after the business passengers! Worth every penny.
  • Antoniette M.
    You can do an exoress checkin with printing your boarding pass with your conformation # and express bag drop off. Awesome! Cut off 20 min of waiting.

    Always consider the downstairs check-in's much faster than the A/B check-in areas upstairs

    Pretty pissed about security. Frequently fly out of BWI and can usually breeze right through. Never seen it like this before.. Missed my flight and here I sit.

    Charging stations while in waiting terminals and wifi on planes ($5) and completely worth it

    Go to the security checkpoint on the lower level. Always zero wait, it's a well kept secret!

    If you are in downtown Baltimore it will take approx. 20 mins without traffic. Cab is about 40 bucks.

    While its still open, hit the downstairs security checkpoint. A lot less traffic. Went through in minutes flat.

    When security is backed up, try the additional line open downstairs by baggage claim.

    Idiotic line for people checking bags w/out a brdng pass. At DCA, you checkin and go to a bag drop. Here, you snake around in a line and whittle away the minutes. Looking at non operating kiosks.

    Make sure you actually get a boarding pass. We had to check in again at the gate and ended up being last in boarding order.
