    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 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
