    Arrive early and enjoy a meal/drinks @ Chelsea's Kitchen in Terminal 4. It's located BEFORE security checkpoint so your family & friends can join! Great food, chill vibe, and handsome bartenders.

    Got an hour to kill? Stretch your legs with a wander around the rectangle of terminals. Infinite walkways! Wacky carpet! Note it's not a full loop. You can only cross n/s from b to c at the east end.

    Who's brilliant decision was it to approve a coffee bar named "Cartel"? As a Colombian, this is insulting. As a consumer, dumb - if you just google the word see how they botched this branding move..

    Terminal 3 is worse than the surrounding Arizona desert. Buy anything you need or want before even arriving to airport. Nothing here but a newsstand and one dumpy restaurant. Not even a coffee shop.

    Because it's usually 100+ degrees outside, they blast the AC inside the airport, making it feel like the North Pole, so bring a sweater if you're stopping here. There's also free wifi and charge ports

    When picking up, use the cell phone lot and tell your passenger to tell you exactly which door to go to... preferably a clear area. Saves time and you won't be "that guy" jamming up curbside pick-up!!

    Awesome airport, very clean and easy to get in and out. The car rental is no longer attached to the terminal but is located in another building in the airport. Takes over an hour to rent a car.

    I like this port for the Wi-fi and Mexican food. Don't like the rental car distance so much. Get a seat. And men, give up your seat to a woman if it's crowded. Chivalry is always appreciated.

    The shops and restaurants close at 9 pm. If you are unlucky enough to be on a late flight or red eye, be prepared to be hungry and thirsty by the time your flight leaves. Pretty poor customer service!

    Free wi-fi, speedy TSA security lines (all terminals), but be prepared to encounter construction in terminal 4. Sky Harbor is bigger than it seems- be ready for flight connections and gate changes.

    La Grande Orange (I think that's the name of the restaurant) has excellent food but a terrible setup. Ordering and getting your food can be confusing but it's worth the hassle. Music's good too!

    If you're running late I suggest you do skycap at the outside curb it's so much faster to avoid late check-ins. It may be a bit hot waiting during summer months but it's worth the hassle!

    You don't need to go to your terminal if you have your tickets already. Just go through security at the first place you see on the correct side and take the moving walkways on the opposite side.

    If you are picking someone up, make sure they text you from the street, after they have picked up their luggage. Cops give tickets if you sit by the curb for ANY amount of time. Rude too!

    If you’re unable to select the middle seat when booking your flight, do not book that flight. The flight is most likely oversold which could make for an unwanted adventure when take-off time comes.
