    Great choice when it comes to flying to Southern California. Its very convenient & its very easy than traveling through LAX. Great thing about it is there's no long lines in check ins & Security.

    Most of the restaurants in the terminal are closed by 7pm. You either get to wait 20 minutes at the Route 66 Cafe for a grilled cheese or eat a lot of gift shop sugar free gum like Sean Spicer.

    Wow - stop and have a coffee before you get here. At this time, not a single place for good coffee. coffee bean shut down, so your only option is a deli or - can you believe it - a vending machine.

    I always bring an empty water bottle and fill it up once I get through TSA. It's a great way to not annoy the flight attendants and get much more water than the tiny bottles at the concession stands.

    Best airport to fly into if you are visiting anyone in the inland parts of LA, OC and even Temecula.

    Quick and easy airport to navigate busiest during early morning flights but still much easier than any airport in the LA area.

    Flying in the evening? Eat dinner before you come. Carl's Jr. Is as good as it gets and closes pretty early. BTW the rental car shuttle can be a bit slow.

    Gateway to the Inland Empire...A better way to get to Riverside, never congested, easy parking, easy in and out

    Eat before you come here. Good restaurants close early here. I love how easy this airport is. In and out. Everyone very helpful and nice.

    Best small airport in the area. Parking is easy, and the terminal is so small it's impossible to get lost. The only bummer is everything closes early.

    Real fast to get through. Quick places to eat is a little lacking and expensive. Round Table Pizza slices and Sclotzsky's sandwiches for $7. Combos at Round Table are ~$15 and ~$12 for Sclotzsky's.

    Be aware that the food choices are limited. If you are here Sunday night, the Carls Jr. and Pizza Hut close at 6:30 and the Schlotzsky's at 7:00. And other than the little bar, that's it.

    Ensure you go to the right terminal to which your airline flies from as getting between the two is one long walk or a inconsistent shuttle!

    If your flight leaves after 5 from terminal 2, get some food before heading to the airport. Nothing is open to buy food or drinks after 5pm. Otherwise, ONT is great for getting through fast!

    Travel is a great excuse to clean out your purse! Getting rid of clutter in your carry-on bag will allow Transportation Security Officers to get a clear X-ray of your bag and save you time.

    Fast security lines, easy access to gates. A lot of road construction though; set aside some time to deal with that.

    Invest in TSA Pre ✅ for $85. You'll speed through the security line in 5 minutes, get to leave your shoes on and your laptop in your bag.

    Friday morning flight before 7am?? Give yourself at least 1:00 time once you reach the front doors. 2 TSA agents checking ID's, lines are 150people deep lately.

    It's easier to wrap your gifts at your destination rather than before you get there. It's not fair to the recipient that they're the 2nd one to open their gift.

    We are always impressed at how much easier travelling is in this airport than most! Enjoy it, but don't get used to it!

    The rental car shuttle bus takes forever (all rental companies). Plenty of time and patience is a necessity if you're renting/returning a car.
  • J Austyn B.
    International flights arriving here often get some congested due to CBP screening & lot of flights arriving close to each other!

    Every airport has an Achilles heel. This one's is that you have to get onto a shuttle to offsite car rental.

    Parking in lot 5 sucks if you come in later than midnight & it's cold. They have 1 shuttle running & you have to wait 40min or walk.

    My only complaint is the 2 hour limit on free WiFi. I was here for almost 4 hours. Needs unlimited WiFi!

    If you return one minute after your parking ticket time, you'll be charged for a full day!

    The restaurants are closed almost all the time . There isn't any vending machine near the gates .. Only way to get your chips or soda would be from outside the airport ..

    It's a real shame how early the restaurants close here. It's 5pm on a Monday and only two places were open. Pretty sure flights out of ontario exceed 10pm. Pack a dinner next time.

    If you are flying in F, ask for access to the elevator if the line is long downstairs and leave everyone in the dust

    Ontario airport so much better faster easier and less stress than LAX. So why is Los Angeles included in the name? That's just silly. Drop the LA from the name!

    Security was a breeze. Quickest I've ever been through. However, food selection is sad. Few places to choose from and at 9am on a Saturday, 1 of the 3 open food places near gate 201 wasn't serving yet

    I can basically come here 15 mins right before my flight and not rush.But for safe measures, just have to do a light jog coz Southwest terminal is all the way at the end lol

    Best airport in Socal with respect to (no) traffic and (relatively little) wait time going through security. Makes LAX seem like the 12th circle of hell by comparison. I pay extra to fly here

    Restaurants/shops close at 5pm, or never open in the first place. Bring your own food or go hungry!

    DL/UA/AK TSA takes longer for frequent flyers compared to other airports or larger terminals; no separate First Class/Elite ID check, screening, or Pre-Check line. :(

    Fastest TSA line ever, but if you come hungry, you are going to have to wait till you reach your destination! Most of the time only the magazine store was open.

    Don't expect to find front lot parking. Instead enter the lot through the street side for lots of open spots.

    There is a comfy place to sleep at gate 203 (United). Its tucked away in a corner and even though its on the ground, noone will bother you!

    Each terminal is built on two levels, with ticketing and baggage claim on the ground floor, and aircraft gates and passenger services on the second level.

    Pros: Clean airport, close to 10/210/60/15 fwys, quick, never crowded. Cons: no wifi, half of bars/restaurants are always closed.

    Got cat hairs stuck on your pants? Just "opt out" of the Rapey-scans.... They'll pay you down with those blue gloves that pick up everything.

    When the security lines are long, take the elevator. Cuts your time by almost half especially on Monday mornings!

    ARRIVE THREE HOURS EARLY FOR INTERNATIONAL FLIGHTS!! You could probably get through security in 5-10 mins but they won't let you in later than 2 hours before the flight.
