    One of the better US airports. Especially good when contrasted with the dumpster fire that is Dulles.

    Limited food options. Typically you need to make bus transfers from your flight for connections and sometimes just to get to the terminal. May need to schedule extra time.

    The lady who said this is an international airport is wrong. It is a domestic airport with no customs or immigration facilities. The only international flights are a few to Canada & the Caribbean.

    Generally cheaper to fly out of this airport than out of IAD. It's much smaller which makes getting to your gate fairly easy and the signage is clear and easy to follow. Can't ask for much else.

    National is typically a pleasure to fly in/out of. TSA is efficient & your fellow travelers typically are seasoned travelers, so there's less BS. Needs more Pre✔️lanes since everyone in DC has it.

    The cell-phone lot is always maxed out. If you're coming from the north on the GW Parkway, wait at the Roaches Run parking lot instead. It's got more spaces and much better planespotting.

    When it is slammed going through gates 23-34, you might not want to go in the priority line because they funnel one of the other lines into 1 tsa employee. Takes fucking forever.
