If you're returning a car rental, prepare yourself for a long grueling trek up a steep hill and across the airport.
I actually liked the glimpse I saw of this airport as I sprinted to catch my plane at the last minute.
Massive airport, super crowded, very confusing. Or.......the exact opposite.
People watching is good here.
Small but efficient airports
Nice coffee at Starbucks
Original flight at 6:25 AM getting home at 10:40 AM All flights cancelled. UNITED doesn't care. Have to spend 10 hours in this small airport and get home 20 hours later! Personnel with BAD ATTIUDE!!
Why would anybody build an airport on the only hill in Lubbock? You have to walk up an uncovered hill, pulling all you luggage, before finally reaching the front doors. Just crazy. Don't wear heels!
Texas Tech's Carol of Lights is the best way to ring in the holiday season. Come back and visit us on Tuesday, December 2, 2014 for the 56th annual event.
The wifi in here is terrible. If you're trying to get any work done, I hope you brought your own hotspot.
Avoid layovers here....there is really nothing but a sad bar where the tap beer was down and a paltry "food court". This sad airport has hardly changed in 40 years.
There are courtesy vehicles that can drop you off and pick you up at the rental car lot. Otherwise, I hope you're wearing good shoes.
Get here one hour before your flight and you will be fine!
Free internet. Awesome!
Might be the worst airport for car rentals. There is an extremely long steep hill you have to go down to get your car, which means you have an extremely long walk up when you return.
Hope you have data left on your plan, the Wi-Fi here is rubbish.
You might not ever leave. .just saying.
TSA at this airport is way overkill. Too many pat downs and other discrepancies that I am sure are only to justify the massive amount of TSA agents at such a small airport.
Very small airport - does have a Starbucks!
Wonderful people - efficiency NOT a priority :-) allow plenty of time-
It's place you look forward too when ur leaving.
The only places to eat are beyond security. Time someone changed that.
This airport hasn't changed in 15 or 20 years. Lubbock has changed a lot. Happy to visit, happy to get the hell out of here. Hook 'em!
The American Bagel Bakery is awesome for any meal!
I always get harassed about things in my bag that make it through other airports just fine. Give yourself plenty of time to go through security!
Don't EVER eat a chicken sandwich from the Burger King inside the airport unless you want food poisoning!
Come here to use airplanes.
If you're on American Airlines... You're most likely screwed.
Come back and visit for Texas Tech's 55th annual Carol of Lights on Tuesday, December 3rd, 2013. Best way to ring in the holidays in Lubbock.
Early morning departures gives you 1 to 1 service by TSA. Quick and friendly.
The NICEST TSA employees I have ever met. Such a pleasant surprise.
Follow me on twitter @_KyleJacobson, travel safely!
Flying over the terminal on the downwind is beautiful!
You'll find the most UN comfortable chairs here...
Only Lubbock would have cotton farms surrounding the airport.
My luggage enjoyed rolling over all the cobblestone pavers outside. Walk inside for as long as possible before heading outside with your luggage.
Visiting for Red Raider Orientation? Welcome!
Expect few people but long waits. Most fliers from LBB don't understand liquid, shoe, electronics rules. Also, staff seem disenchanted at best.
The TSA here is the worse I've ever encountered. Make sure you give yourself plenty of time to go through the TSA kitchen. Way too many cooks and plenty of pat-downs because of a trigger happy scanner
The airport opens at 5:00am, so know that even if your flight is at 5:45am that is when folks will be here to greet you.
The airport staff are so incredibly nice. I always have wonderful conversations while going through security.
Be afraid...be very afraid!! Lubbock is the place that old alpaca's go to die!! Stay away!
Those people wish they could join the mile high club with a f/a .... Tasteless idiots
Buddy Holly is from here. That's all I got folks.
Stupid security chk
Don't ever book with American airlines. They don't like you. They don't care about you. And they make sure that you know it.
The only time I'm ever harassed by the TSA is in Lubbock!
Smallest airport ever. Can't wait to fly back to civilization.
