    Great small airport. Arrive 45 min before flight, plenty of time TSA super friendly and nice. Check out top flight club for free coffee and snacks. Staff very friendly.

    Two words: Business Center. Enter by Gate 5 to find a peaceful place to work and wait for your flight. Free coffee, snacks and WiFi; ample outlets. Much appreciated.

    Love small airports, no wait for the car at enterprise. Friendly staff, walked out the door, put carryon bags in the car all before checked bag arrived. No drama here!!

    Golden rule applies: treat TSA agents the way you'd want to be treated. I've had incredibly pleasant exchanges this trip, but witnessed grumpy passengers trying to be smart with security. Bad idea.

    Great small airport. Not much to it but easy to get through security and convenience. No problem with TSA. Body scan but who cares if you have nothing to hide. Great experience!

    Small, uncrowded airport. Very easy to get in and out. Plus a direct flight to our destination! Most relaxing travel experience I've had in ages.

    Such negativity. I like there are more TSA agents. That means I'm safer. Dont mind the boredom either. Better than driving 2 hours to Det. and getting there 2 hrs before flight leaves. LAN anytime.

    Security was so nice! They caught an old wallet tool I had that had a blade that all the other airports didn't ! We're very nice about it

    Arrives there 30 mins before the scheduled flight and got to the gate with the time to spare. Small and efficient airport. Not sure why they need 10+ gates

    Lansing is a great airport to fly out of because there is almost never a line at TSA. But people tend to move very slow here, so plan to be an hour early anyway.

    1.5 hours before flight in insane overkill. Have a feeling you could show up 20 mins before flight and be fine. WDE!

    Small airports are easier to deal with regarding traffic. Airfares are rarely competitive.

    The security is more peevish than any big city airport I've ever been to. Allow some extra time.

    Got here at 4:30am for a flight that supposedly boards at 5:15am.. TSA hadn't even opened security at that point, just a bunch of them standing around... lesson learned. They were all friendly though.

    On the plus side CATA has a stop outside the terminal entrance. Consider this instead of a cab.

    They don't take student or military IDs! It Took me like 30 minutes to get through an empty security checkpoint. They are terrible about posting flight times too.
