    If you rent a car, there is a little shuttle that will bring you to the Departures so that you don't have to walk up that horrible hill with your luggage. Don't forget to tip!

    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!

    My luggage enjoyed rolling over all the cobblestone pavers outside. Walk inside for as long as possible before heading outside with your luggage.

    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.

    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.

    If you're returning a car rental, prepare yourself for a long grueling trek up a steep hill and across the airport.

    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 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.

    Early morning departures gives you 1 to 1 service by TSA. Quick and friendly.

    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!!

    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.

    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.

    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
