Airport serving the Washington D.C. area, with a main terminal designed by Eero Saarinen.- Google
"Overall, has some great airlines (JetBlue, Virgin America), though."
"Completely unacceptable waiting times to pass through passport control."

I have yet to find an airport that i love, but IAD is my preferred port in the DC area. Parking is usually good and the transportation system is consistent. It's clean but could be more comfortable. It is big so plan enough time to move around.

DON'T FLY THROUGH HERE!! Rude and cruel staff. Incredibly inefficient. Takes THREE HOURS to get through if you are coming in on an international flight. One hour to get your bags off the plane. One to get through passport control. One to get through the scanners, of which there are only three for thousands of people.

This is probably one of the worst designed airports I've ever traveled thru. When you deplane, it can take you up to 30 minutes just to get to the exit door of the airport. The transit system is ridiculous -- after going thru security, you have to descend 3 or 4 stories to get to the train which takes you to the gates. Then you go back up 3-4 stories. It sounds fine in theory, but in practice, unless you check all your bags, and carry nothing but a ticket, it's a huge hassle. I've been thru at least 30 airports in the US and a dozen overseas. Dulles and Atlanta take the take for worst design, Denver takes the cake for oddest. There is a reason business at Dulles is going down (while Reagan National and BWI are going up). Flyers like me who know avoid Dulles like the plague.

Worst airport I have ever been to. Got my boarding pass. After a walk of about one mile to my gate, I was advised the gate had changed. This all in about 15 minutes.This walk was even further.This was a United flight.

Sometime between 2012 and 2013 I was on a flight from Columbia SC to Washington while in route to Baghdad. Prior to the flight I had felt ill but was unable to miss the flight because I worked in Iraq. The flight had been smooth and as we approached for landing and the wheels were coming I began vomiting and not having a emesis bag I tried my best to keep it down and even swallowing it several time. Each episode became more forceful than the last and as we touched down I projectile vomited on myself, the seat and possibly the person in front of me. I turned to the person next to me and said move! they hesitated and I said MOVE again. I made it to the restroom with an accordion door and projectile vomited all over the wall and toilet. As this was happening the person in the seat near the restroom was quickly trying to close the door behind me and then came the diarrhea. I had several episode of diarrhea as I sat on the vomit soaked toilet. I was a complete mess covered in vomit and diarrhea but I was able to make it to the family restroom in the terminal and by the grace of God my wife made me pack a change of clothes. This is a 100% true story and I would like to apologize to ever one that was affected by this.

crappy crappy airport... it's crappy. there is more organization in a child's playroom. the flights get cancelled people are running around because they make it impossible to reach your gate on time. I will not be flying through here again. united customer service suck a fat one. zero compassion. Not a care in the world.

Departure: United put my luggage on a later flight with no explanation and then didn't get it delivered to me until late the next day at my destination. No fun going to work in what you traveled and slept in. Arrival: Arrived 9:00 on a Sunday night. There was a sign pointing upstairs to head back to parking garage and then absolutely no signs once you were on the top level. Being late on a Sunday there was no one to ask to point me in the right direction. I parked as close as I could but felt very uncomfortable walking back to garage by myself outside at night. Parked on the second floor of garage which did not know there is only a second floor for half of the garage. Tried to take stairs down one level to car but level 2 is not there. Tried to take elevator and there is no button for level 2. A sign saying this elevator does not go to level 2 and you need to walk down to next section to enter level 2 would have been very helpful. I was getting a little panicky trying to figure out how to get to my car and not wanting to roam around the empty parking garage by myself at night. I will be going to BWI or DCA next time.
