Great airport to save a few bucks!

by aussiechica121 (August, 2014)

Reason for Stay: Too cheap for a hotel room
Where: Landside
Pros: Clean, comfortable seats, free wifi, lots of long benches
Cons: Cold, not many food options

I stayed for 2 nights and I was pleasantly surprised at how comfortably I slept there. There were lots of long benches to stretch out on to get some sleep. The wifi was extremely fast, better than I have at home! I have also slept at the Miami International Airport before and it was hell, security woke me up in the middle of the night and made me sit up on a chair. The security at Fort Lauderdale was practically non existant and when they did come by they didnt bother me or wake me up. I found terminal 1 to be the best to sleep in if the couches by the car rental places are already taken. There were power outlets everywhere on level 3 in terminal 1 to set up all your electronics! It was cold but I had my luggage with me so I just put an extra layer of clothing on at night and that kept me nice and warm. The announcements werent too bad bu continued >>

Incheon Review

by web-administrator (August, 2014)

Pros: -
Cons: -

(email submission from Colin) wanted to add this review, and specifically mention that I arrived from the outside (Seoul side) at 4:15am after staying up all night on a 17-hour transit, and was able to get past security, so I believe that it's open 24 hours. There are four people just milling around waiting for people to show up. They seemed pretty bored. You had somewhat of a question about this on the Incheon profile, so I thought I'd mention it. However, ticketing/check-in is closed until at least 5:30. I think it varies by airline, and the hours are posted on the airport's web site. People were laying on those awful wooden benches outside of security, and I felt bad for them. The 'Rest and Relax Zone' is not really a secret: there are signs as soon as you enter from security directing you upstairs to it. Bring earplugs and a blindf continued >>

Reason for Stay: Too cheap for a hotel room
Where: Landside
Pros: plugs, seats with armrests, vending machines, toilets
Cons: no sleeping spaces, poor wifi if working, automatic doors.

We did great ocen road. Arrived 10am to drop off hire car. Flight was late at night. Need to reat from journey No couches, had to sleep on floor. No showers, we had gone a couple days roo many. Only vending machines on landside. Airside shut early. We were asked if we wanted to grab food but had one meal. Poor/if working wifi. Plugs for charging. I you were to stay for an hour it's fine you'd have plastic seats with arms and vending machine and be able to get a o airside if there in opened hours. Only advantage was due to waiting patiently and slweping on floor. When bording came around we were offered extra leg room. Airside was basic quiet few shops.
