    An improvement! A bank of three sets of outlets (115v and USB) for travelers! Seems to be only one in the whole concourse. Nice start but they should wire seats at each gate, not just one table.

    This is a nice and clean airport. I especially appreciate the clean restrooms and the large number of stalls in the ladies room. Quite a few restaurant choices in the "lobby" area (before security).

    When I walked into the men's restrooms out looked spotless clean. Best restrooms cleanliness I have been in and I travel allot. Yet, I do like Chicago's toilet seat automatic sanitation.

    The best mid-size airport. Rarely more than a 5 or 10 min wait at security; $7/day parking in the garage; 2 Starbucks, 1 is 24 hr; SWA; lots of flights. B concourse is better than A & no free WiFi.

    Dining options: was stunned to discover the buffalo wings at the Back Bay Bistro in terminal B were excellent! Hot, crispy & spicy. Get them.

    The new security stations are much more efficient at processing passengers. Looks like all of the construction we've been walking around for years was really making a difference.

    Concourse A, Great American Bagel: get a jalapeno cheddar bagel toasted with cream cheese. So good, filling, and cheap!

    On a Monday night a week before Memorial Day, there were maybe 5 people in front of us for security. If only all lines could be that snappy.

    Southwest accepts 2 FREE CHECKED BAGS. Save the time in security if you need to travel with aerosols and liquids AND you don't have to lug your bags all over the place.

    Don't wear a hooded sweatshirt that you can't unzip or easily take off...and now apparently jewels and glitter on clothing is a flag.#thinkshejustwantedtofeelmybreast

    Get here 2 hours before your flight and remember your departure time is when your plane takes off...not your boarding time!!

    If your flying overseas on orders you check as much luggage as you need, just show them your orders and you won't get any fees

    Very easy airport for parking and security checks. New checkpoints in 2013 made things vastly easier. Feel relaxed here!

    the long-term garage parking costs the same as the other long-term lot, and it's MUCH more convenient!!

    The James River Grill makes a great eggs Florentine if you have time before a morning fight.

    Handy for those living in eastern VA. Lines through security are pretty quick compared to larger airports.

    The season of 'infrequent fliers' has begun. Get there early - this airport is on the small side & not too quick to process.

    The rental car return guys will run you to your airline check in if your running late. Super helpful!

    The wifi is not free which is a real downside. Small enough airport to find everything your looking for.

    Everything was quick, but no wifi near B24 (and it looks like you have to pay for it when you can actually connect).

    Yay! There's a new pub in A Terminal (Southwest Air): James River Grill! Finally a sit-down food & drink option in A!

    Great airport. Would be even better if they had some decent beer. That being said, the Bloody Mary's are automatically doubles.

    Monday evening's are very slow; best time to fly out of ORF if your schedule allows it.

    Nice airport, no lines and VERY quick check-in. The only bad thing is no free wi-if.

    They have a Starbucks after the security check, so don't get a drink out in the atrium that you'll just have to chug.

    Starbucks before terminal warns you cannot take drink pass security. Good to know!

    If you are traveling on a American Eagle Flight be prepared to have your second carry on bag be taken to be stowed under the pale. The overhead compartments are much smaller than a regular plane

    Eat before you go to the gates. The food choices on the concourses are weak at best. One good thing is the new starbucks on concourse A.

    Bored? If you've got an hour or more to kill, the Botanical Gardens are a 5 minute walk from the Information Desk at Baggage Claim... and entry is free when you walk in!

    You don't have to arrive super early, it's not too crowded, in fact I was the only person in the security line for Southwest!

    Eat before you get there, bring a meal/snacks, wait til the in-flight meal, or eat at your next/final destination: weak/limited food otions at ORF...

    Walk really slow when arriving... your luggage will never beat you to the conveyor belt. Twenty to Thirty minute wait guaranteed!

    Seats with electrical outlets on first floor by windows. Nice spot to charge up before your flight.

    No free wi-fi but it's cheap. The airport is old and dated, great for a 80s or 90s film!

    the coffee in gate a is slightly less tasty than battery acids. stop by starbucks in the main terminal if you want a better cup.

    Lines at TSA little longer due to budget stuff, give yourself an extra fifteen minutes!

    Most of the eateries and shops are outside of security, so eat first and don't buy a drink until you're in!

    If you are military DONT sit outside with nothing to do. The USO should always be open. Look for it and chill inside.
