    Tiny airport with short security lines and friendly staff. Airport offers free wifi also! There is a snack bar here with decent food, coffee, and alcohol choices. Couldn't ask for anything more!

    Wonderful airport. Easily accessible. Just wish the one restaurant were open longer hours.

    Absolutely top notch airport. Rentals right by baggage claim, line never too long at security. Easy to use.

    Be careful with your checked bags here. I've only flown in and out here a handful of times, and they've nearly lost my checked luggage TWICE.

    Don't bother checking in online with Delta if you are checking bags. They will make you check in at the kiosk again anyhow. Do check in online with US Airways because they do not any kiosks.

    Security is pretty "thorough"(takes forever) and they're kinda rude. Also eat before you come bc there's nothing, and what there is is ridiculously over priced.

    CHA used to be really easy. But get there at least an hour ahead now. They have a scanner and it's like the world stopped. 45 to get about 30 or 40 ppl through. Yikes
