    PULL FORWARD. The best unloading spots are NOT at the back.

  • Elaine P.

    Take the walkway from lower level to rental cars instead of waiting for shuttle.

    Elaine Plybon · July 4, 2014
  • Jennifer R.

    Make sure you grab food before security, there is no real restaurant food near the gates! And only one bar.

    This terminal is getting a much-needed facelift!

    Laura · October 28, 2013

    If you do go through security, you can get a bagel or other breakfast at Jerry's and then sit at the Samuel Adams bar.

    There is a shortcut from Metro to terminal A if you go outside after you leave Metro

    This is a lame terminal. The other terminals have five guys, potbelly and Dunkin doughnuts. This one is really limited. Eat before you get there.

    Terminal A is the farthest place from anything ever. It's the Pluto of National Airport

    Andrew Wiseman · July 4, 2013
  • Margaret F.

    Small terminal with very few food options, but don't count on the security line being short!

    Margaret F · June 2, 2013
  • Jean Newman G.

    Small terminal but security lines can be long at peak times.

    Jean Newman Glock · May 18, 2013
  • Margot B.

    Prepare yourself for few and poor food options. Your best bet is Einstein Brothers before security.

    Margot Bloomstein · May 3, 2013
  • Eric B.

    World's worst internet access. Free option (which doesn't work), but even the paid Boingo doesn't work. Also, poor food choices (greasy spoons) and very limited seating. Stay away if possible!

    Eric Benchimol · April 20, 2013

    The food services behind security on gates 1 through 9 is a little sparse get what you need before you go through security.

    Chelsea Frazier · March 24, 2013
  • Andrew W.

    If you like walking really, really far, Terminal A is for you

    I live this terminal, small, door to hate in 15 min. Limited food/drink options but enough if the basics to get the job done.

    Corrie Davidson · March 3, 2013

    It's like the Siberia of DCA. Scrub airlines, scrub amenities.

    3 degrees C - damn!

    Jerry's Pizza is not bad, fast lines,

    Jim Gwinner · December 14, 2012
  • Geoff O.

    The low-cost carriers fly out of here and the terminal's condition and offerings reflect that.

    Geoff Openshaw · December 13, 2012
  • Matt D.

    Stay to the left at TSA. The line splits at the front and moves more efficiently than the right side.

    Matt Dicker · October 4, 2012
  • Matt D.

    The worst. Few and cruddy places to eat, terrible layout, cramped TSA area.

    Matt Dicker · October 4, 2012
  • Santi P.

    Perfect terminal to get just in time for your flight!! Probbably the worst one to be stuck at for a couple of hours, there's nothing besides complimentary wifi

    Santi Palacios Bacqué · August 27, 2012
  • Alexa M.

    Hellish terminal - avoid at all costs.

    Alexa Moutevelis · August 26, 2012
  • Brian M.

    Small and Sun Country does not open until two hours before the flight for check in. Keep that in mind if you arrive early with the plan of getting through check in and TSA early.

    Brian McDonald · August 24, 2012
  • Andrew W.

    This place is far away. But you can pretend its the 1930s, part of the terminal was the original airport

    Andrew Wiseman · July 22, 2012

    Eat before you get here

    Don't fly Oceanic.

    Spirit airline sucks!

    Flying can be scary, but don't worry, once you land you are safe.

    Nichole Bowen · May 9, 2012

    Crappy airport

    Joe Golds · April 10, 2012
  • Wayland K.

    No using cellphones once the cabin door is closed!

    Wayland Kramer · March 4, 2012
  • Bronwyn B.

    If headed out in the early a.m., grab coffee & bagel @ Einsteins before going thru security.

    Bronwyn Bailey · March 1, 2012
  • Raihan M.

    Duty free shops are SMALL

    Raihan Masroor · February 12, 2012
  • John T.

    Just remember DC folks this is for Jet Blue. Don't wander around DCA looking for the terminal.

    John Thornton · November 11, 2011
  • Eric A.

    Good news: Small terminal, limited walking/confusion. Bad news: Limited options/convenience

    Eric Andersen · November 10, 2011
  • Jon M.

    Ppl bitch about this terminal, but it was built when America was falling in love w/air travel. Best views of air craft and the Potomac. Most romantic terminal I've ever been in.

    Jon McCarty · November 5, 2011
  • Jesse

    Eat before entering because if your flight is delayed you'll be trapped with overpriced and very limited food options.

    Jesse · October 26, 2011
  • Jaime W.

    The shuttle to this terminal makes me want to die. Can't they build a tram like every other airport?? WHY CAN'T I GET HERE FASTER?!

    Jaime Wojdowski · October 6, 2011

    If u are SICK like this wheezing asshle then Stay HOME !!!!!

    Each laptop needs it's own bin and taken out of it's case. Each iPad also needs it's own bin so grab extra bins and remember shoes and belts off

    Tim Musick · September 17, 2011
  • Katy B.

    Wow! Front door drop-off, no line at Frontier, a short walk and TSA line and to my Gate 7 in less than 15 minutes! Excellent.

    Katy Burley · September 5, 2011
  • Kim C.

    At least there's a bar.

    Kim Cruts · August 5, 2011
  • Zoe M.

    Avoid at all costs. Tiny, cramped, boring, with little to no food options. There isn't even a Starbucks!

    Zoe McDermott-Adler · August 4, 2011
  • Bob B.

    I love the look of this terminal. The 60's version if the future design is awesome.

    Bob Brier · March 12, 2011
  • Eric S.

    While there is NO Starbucks and very few places to eat, it is always easy to navigate and security is almost always a breeze to get through.

    Eric Slee · December 11, 2010
  • Jack B.

    if you arrive three hours early for a flight, you are foolish. It is small, there are plenty of seats and security moves quickly. Arriving an hour before departure gives you plenty of time.

    Jack Brown · November 4, 2010
  • Steven D.

    Old, small terminal means less walking. Be happy.
