    Will be glad when the remodel is finished. Parking and getting in and out is easy. Only $1 if you are just dropping someone off or picking them up park for a short amount of time.

    SDF is a small airport - a lot is changing right now (dec 16) but Chili's is usually very good. I'll say Almira the Delta gate agent is my favorite gate agent ever. So customer service focused!

    If you land and you don't have a place to stay, try the 21C Museum Hotel. The place is amazing. It's on 6th or 7th & Main. Funky, hippster hotel with Proof, a cool bar/restaurant. There's my tip.

    My local airport - I've never had a problem here. The TSA security line can look scary long but they are pretty fast. Arrive in plenty of time to catch flight just to be safe.

    Welcome to Louisville! Lines are generally short so you don't have to "jockey" for a spot in the security zones. TSA agents are friendly as long a you don't "stirrup" any trouble. Horses live here.

    Watch out for the ridiculous golf carts driving perfectly healthy people to and from the gates. They will beep at you and near well run you over to get some lazy person through faster.

    The Altitude Lounge now accepts Platinum and Diamond Medallions (I'm sure other airlines too) complimentary. Anyone traveling with you though will have to pay the $5.00.

    Feel free to use the family restroom, even if you don't have a baby. It's a single stall & you can lock the outer door in order to change or freshen makeup after landing undisturbed.

    While it's great that they have a full on pre-check lane there is no priority lane. When you don't get pre-check, security is a hassle. #axcesstravel

    Not a bad little airport. Friendly TSA screeners. If you're flying Delta or anything else in Terminal A, eat before the terminal. Only choice by A gates is a crappy Chili's.
