    The good at the new bar is okay but better than before. It is a little pricey.

    Yes, it's a small airport, but that's welcoming for a number of travelers. Still, expect most long flights to involve a layover at a busier hub.

    Small airport, but don't underestimate the security line. Recommend getting there 1 hour ahead. Sometimes 3 or so flights will take off around the same time, leading to congestion.

    All of the flights aren't on the monitors so for a first time flyer I got a bit panicky until the crew assured me I was at the right gate. Pretty small, clean, and efficient.

    Nice small airport, if u want some VA souvinears, get @ shop near security entrance, as there's no place inside to get them.

    Do NOT be in a hurry to get off and get your bags here...the speed (or lack thereof) of the baggage claim is disproportionately SLOW compared to the size of the airport...ONE baggage carousel.

    Get here early if you have to check in a bag. 2 times I've had issues with them b/c of small ticketing staff. 1st time guy was on his smoke break, 2nd time the line made the check in 1 min after time

    Nov2012: CHO says to arrive at least 90 min before 5-7AM departures for parking, ticketing and security (esp. over Thanksgiving). Terminal opens at 3:30AM; airline ticket counters open by 4:15AM

    Security here is much tougher on liquids/gels/lotions being screened separately than at larger city airports.

    Great sandwiches from the Market, but no restaurants. Airport is small and a breeze but don't come less than 30 minutes before your flight or they may not be able to take your bag! Love this place!

    As a frequent flyer, this is one of the best airports to leave out of (assuming your flight isn't delayed or canceled. If it is, good luck finding another flight.) No lines, friendly staff, free Wi-Fi

    You used to be able to get away with being at the airport 30 mins before a flight if you weren't checking luggage. The airport's gotten busier and now you need 45 mins min

    Pick up a sandwich in the store, even if you'll be in another airport for lunch during a layover. Guaranteed its a better sandwich than you'll find at other airports! You'll be glad you thought ahead.
