    I love this airport. It is magically quite somehow. Even though it's busy, it's not noisy at all. Very nice for getting work done. And free WiFi. And of course, good coffee. :)

    Grab coffee at Café Vita (C3) and some world-famous mac & cheese at the adjacent Beecher's. Pick up some 90s swag at Sub Pop. Then sit in the atrium and watch a live local band. Perfection.

    If you plan to take the train to the city, note that you can only buy a day pass for the current day - do not try to buy two at once for today and tomorrow, you may get stopped and warned, nicely tho

    Food courts at the S gates are limited. Grab a Lemon Loaf & Decaf at Seattle's Finest Coffee kiosk, or do a takeaway from the restaurant in front of it as there's a wait time of 20 mins for seating.

    There really aren't any healthy food options in the transit area, but you can enjoy a burger and a nice view of the jets outside the big panorama windows.

    Head to the Central Terminal's streetscape scene w/ shops & food court. Check out the glass curtain w/ airfield views. Sit in the rocking chairs, connect to free WiFi, & watch planes land & take-off.

    The rental car facility has moved off site which makes getting to and from the airport take a lot longer. Take Uber to get around instead and take advantage of the region's diamond lanes as well.

    Pros: free wifi, great food options, very clean and nice decor. Cons: line was really long at north terminal, one of the longest I've seen at an airport on Saturday afternoon. Go early if you can.

    TSA TIP #3 Remove your laptop(s) and shoes/belts while waiting in line for the x-ray machines and carry them in your hands to be ready for the bins, remember laptops are placed in a bin by itself.

    Traveling with kids? Use the family security check! Near the D gates as of Jan 2013. As a mom traveling alone with a baby, the TSA agents went out of their way to help me through.

    Dish D'Lish near the main concourse has the best quick breakfast. Avoid Wendy's and Ivar's unless you have 20 minutes to wait for your meal after ordering. Vino Volo is best place for a quiet drink.

    Alaska Airlines check-in for First Class usually has a line of four to five people with one agent checking in bags and tickets so might be worth it to use the self serve positions for faster check-in!

    Pop over to Anthony's seafood - chowder in a sourdough bowl and the prawn Bloody Mary can ease any cross country jaunt.

    Vino Volokh has a great wine sampler option. The chilli was delicious. The atmosphere is relaxing with jazz music. You may spend a lot but it's worth it.

    During today's early morning hours (Sep 30) there is no wifi which is frustrating as I am planning my trip changes. Would be easier on my iPad then iPhone! Hope it will be up and running soon!!!

    Seattleites will loath me, but Ivar's clam chowder at the airport is my soul food every time I fly out. As for the airport itself, it's big, confusing, and it's unchanged since the 90s, but I like it.

    Using the light rail to get downtown is super easy. It's a bit of a walk from the terminal, but the signage is good and it's all through the parking ramp, so it's covered.

    One of my favorite airports in the US. It's tiny, but has good shops (visit Sub-pop!), good food, and also has street musicians (buskers)!

    Massive airport, you can find everything and anything inside. Unfortunately terminal S (international) lacks options when it comes to the food court, specially early in the mornings or late at night.

    When the check-in line is as long as the airport itself, don't hesitate to use the curbside baggage check service offered by most airlines. A tip is polite, but it is worth the saved time.

    SEA airport makes flying fun. Look for the clowns and jugglers in the main food court. Leave plenty of time for domestic connections if you arrive from overseas.

    Spent the night there last night. It gets cold so ask for a blanket. Best place to sleep is behind the ticket wall to keep light and sound out. Stay away from windows. Night crew is very helpful!

    Don't pay for the "express" charge kiosks! Bring a 1A(Belkin, Apple, etc.) USB charger, and look for other kiosks. They have to plug in somewhere, often with a free plug for YOU!

    One of the few airports where bathroom doors swing out, not in, and if you travel a lot on your own, you definitely know why that's awesome!

    If you have kids: In the B concourse there are fish on the floor. See if your kids can find the ones holding luggage or shaped like a plane. And one of the water fountains has a sound feature.

    You MUST get Clear, walked in with a scary long line at the security check in and walked through the Clear line and was through the line in literally 3 mins.

    Get the TSA Pre check card, cost a little, and takes a couple if months to get but so worth it to zip past everybody on busy days!
