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

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

    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.

    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!

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

    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.

    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.
