    Airport staff is friendly, just expect to see slight TSA delays since they don't have the volume for larger staffs 24/7

    Small Town airport with lots of onsite parking and easy to get in and out of. Watch out for the dopes that park their car waiting for someone to come out in the arrival area.

    Long wait after landing because GRR's gate resources aren't prepared to handle two inbound flights at the same time.

    One of the fastest airports I have ever been in, though I live here and wait till the last minute to get here for my flights and am usually running a bit. Quick security lines and small size helps.

    If you're looking for the taxi stand, go to the door that says "exit to curbside" in the baggage claim area. It's poorly marked. Taxis to downtown area are between $32 - $40.

    If you're in terminal B, eat before you go through security. This may change due to construction, but only a bagel shop is available on the secure side right now.

    There is a Quiznos & a salad place. Your food choices are very limited. Otherwise, it's a nice, quiet airport that's easy to get around.

    Line to check in and ticket counter and line to drop checked bags at tsa check in look the same. Ask which line you're in so you don't waste time. And leave 10 extra minutes for tsa bag drop.

    Concourse A & B are not connected. To get from one to the other, you have to exit & go through security again on the other side. There are lots of places to sit & eat in-between (outside of security).

    Sometimes you have to have your liquids and gels out, sometimes not - be ready! Also, give yourself plenty of time, it's a mellow airport, but lots of non-regular travelers who get confused, etc.
