    The airport is newly remodeled and still really easy to get in and through security so you don't need to get there as early as most airports. Security will take 15 minutes or less.

    I'm glad RIC isn't old & busted any more.

    RIC has three Caribou Coffee locations: one in the Atrium (pre-security) and one in each concourse (post-security). Great coffee selections, teas, and some frozen bevs as well. Enjoy!

    hit up the WaWa right outside the airport entrance for food, coffee, fuel for rental car.

    Don't try and show up early like you would for a normal airport. Checkin + security rarely lasts more than 15 minutes.

    Picking up an arriving loved one? 2 free parking options: 1) Cell Phone Waiting Lot on Terminal Drive and 2) Hourly Parking in the decks if staying less than 60 minutes.

    I can't believe the TSA guy asked me to make the Kanye West Illuminati Triangle with my hands in the body scanner.

    Power up! Free recharge stations added at all gate areas.

    TSA team is a hot mess - at least at the B Terminal. Be prepared to wait in line & don't try to ask questions (they'll just roll their eyes & continue talking to each other)!

    Stop in one of the new Club Level Grills and use the power outlets under the seats! Great upgrade!

    You've got the power! Free recharge stations between all gates in Concourses A and B, plus quite a few in the new Club Level Grill.

    In terminal B skip CheeburgerCheeburger and hit Club Level instead. Same amount of time, friendlier service, better food and same price.

    If you have 2 bags to check on AirTran, definitely upgrade to Bus Class for only $4 more.

    If you have airplane ear, pain from pressure changes, use Afrin before departure! No more pain!

    Cannot express how grateful I am that in only 30 minutes after I get in my car at home, I am at the gate.

    B Terminal security team is incredibly frustrating. They checked my iPad for explosives. The woman that did it was literally looking for something to do...I heard her tell a coworker!

    Don't fly to Chicago late in the day.

    New priority lines in security! Such a breeze for frequent visitors to get through now.

    Use James River Transportation for great comfort & car service. Better than a taxi & flat rate cost is as affordable. Love it.

    Check out Sam Adams at concourse B.C. cherry wheat is great. Our server Floyd is awesome.

    If you're flying out early some of the local hotels have an airport shuttle and let you leave your car for free.
