Reviews – What People Are Saying
The reviews coming from the airports passengers and customers are more of a positive feedback, that gives the airport an impression of being clean and fully-functional airport that serves its customers the best services it could provide. These are the reviews I’ve read and gathered:
“Free Wifi, very clean, directions were very clear and all of the staff that I interacted with were very helpful. I had a 4 hour layover and I meandered around the airport before settling down for a bite to eat. There was no crazy rush feeling like I usually get when I arrive at my local LAX. Hopefully I will have the chance to be back!”
—Jasmine Y (Los Angeles California)
“If you have a long stopover , this is the place you want to get stuck in. There are tons of stores and restaurants, from American stores to restaurants. I had two great meals. It is big, clean, and bright. I had breakfast and lunch there and I did not break the bank. It was a great experience between flights to Fort Lauderdale ,direct to terminal 4.”
—Jim D (Fort Lauderdale, FL)
“This is actually a fun airport to be in. It’s clean, expansive, and easy to navigate with personnel who are willing to answer your questions. Taking the train from the airport to the city center is a breeze, and you won’t have to worry about rushing as the trains are pretty reliable. I had a seven hit layover here and was able to get to the central station is twenty minutes, spend a couple of hours for lunch and seeing the city, and head back to the airport with more than enough time before my flight. Expect to have a good experience here!”
