    The worst terminal in Newark. Old, run down, and minimal food options.
  • Daniel P.
    Terminal A sucks. Wi-Fi options: nonfunctioning Boingo Hotspot. Also hope you don't have Verizon, because it is a total dead zone for data (in gates 30-39 area at least).

    If you want to be in anywhere on time better not fly with united

    Compared to terminal c, I feel like I'm in a slave boat. Place is packed and small. Terminal c was some much better.

    If you can avoid departing out of terminal A, I strongly suggest it. Security lines can bottleneck which renders TSA precheck pass useless. Not many food options. You'll settle for Earl of Sandwich

    Not great for gates A30-39, poor food options. Does have charging points some of which were working. Staff seem disorganised which makes me nervous when flying!

    I realize construction, but this is terrible. Not enough seats, and while there are a few food places, there are no tables but Earl of Sandwich. Once you're through security, it is a crummy wait.

    Terminal A is actually in Elizabeth NJ due to local politics when the terminals were built. Municipal tax base or something.

    An average functional terminal from the 1970's with the usual fast food options and chains. Some decent stores: books, children's. Maybe not the best, but not the horror in all these tips from delays.

    Eating healthy in Terminal A - there's nothing past the securuty check, so yiur best option is Qdoba at the small food court. Get the chicken salad in a bowl. Skip the cheese. Dream of better meals.

    Terminal C is much better at everythng. Avoid this one of you can. Tip: United's wider planes usually go out of C. Narrow 1-2 configurations almost always fly out of A.

    If taking a united flight out of terminal A and have TSApre, go thru security at terminal C and take the shuttle. It has got to be faster than no TSApre at terminal A.
