police sweeping through airport

(Guest Review) The police are sweeping through the Orlando airport 9 Investigates homeless staying at Orlando International Airport WFTV9 Thursday 5th November, 2015... Orlando International Airport is trying to prevent transients from taking the bus and spending the night there. Convicted sex offender Robert Meineke told Channel 9's Kathi Belich that the airport is a great place to spend the night. 'There's a bunch of people; they stay out there constantly. They take bird baths in the restrooms downstairs,' Meineke said. Meineke can't get into a shelter because he's on probation for not registering as a sex offender, and he said he doesn't want to get caught camping downtown. 'I just wanted to see if it would work. I had nowhere else to go,' Meineke said. 'It worked. Nobody questioned me, so I tried it again and again.' Channel 9 found a homeless prep cook who said it is working for him. It was after midnight. He blended in with arriving tourists and was even able to charge his cellphone. 'It's been so hard, and I'm trying to make it until I get paid again. (I'll) find me a room and start over again,' said the man, who didn't want to be identified. The tearful man said he had nowhere to sleep that night. 'I didn't know I was going to be in this situation today,' he said. Belich learned that a number of homeless take the last night Lynx bus from the outlet malls to the airport. The next bus doesn't arrive at the airport until 5 a.m. If they get caught trespassing, as one woman did while Belich was at the airport, they still spend the night. Three months ago Orlando police said they caught a homeless man in the airport with a loaded gun in his pocket around mi continued >>

seats in waiting area

Pros: -
Cons: -


(Guest Review) seats missing in terminal waiting area very bad for all flights delays, elderly folks having hard time finding any place to rest while waiting for delayed flights. Can't believe Tampa airport would not see how bad this would be for customers waiting for arrivals. The experience was very bad for the folks picking me up as they are disabled and elderly.

the worst tsa

by airportreviewer (August, 2015)


Where: Landside and Airside
Pros: sleep by the ticket counters
Cons: more stuff landside than airside


Sleep at the ticket counters behind the chairs on the carpet. The phones here are free local calls. The Hyatt and fountain side is beautiful. Starbucks. Its dark but only hard benches to sleep on. You can go upstairs to the Hyatt to check it out/ride the glass elevator but I don't know if they'll let you sleep there. The food court in the middle is expensive but pretty good. Mcdonalds is open all night. People sleep on the padded benches in the food court but they do close it up sometimes to clean so sleep early. Hard benches in departures. The other side has a few couchy type areas with outlets. DunkinD. On this side lots of teams going through, lots of sports players. The Car rental level is much warmer than Departures. People were sleeping on the floor inside the chairs configurations. The city bus side has security patrolling through at night. Watch your stuff. Better to sleep upstairs. Free wifi. Beware that A and B baggage and car rental levels look exactly the same and not a clue that they are different. Its like a weird space portal. One has the city buses and the other has taxis is the only clue. You have to go back up to Departures and cross to the other side. Go to Baggage for the restrooms. Its easier than looking on Departures. At 2pm the lightning starts and everything halts. So get your food before the line starts. Go outside and watch the show. If you have to leave Orlando get an early flight. Tsa is horrible and completely retarded. They have lines all the way out the door on both sides funneling into a single line. It will take forever. They wanted to see my social security card?? I don't think so. That doesn't even have a picture on it. M continued >>

Orlando Airport Review

by web-administrator (March, 2015)


Pros: -
Cons: -


(Guest Review) Main terminal pre-security has a great variety of restaurant and shopping options to kill time as well as comfy seating. Staff is generally pleasant but security can be insanely busy. Beware any cross-airline connections as crossing from the east side (Airsides 2 & 4) to the west side (Airsides 1 & 3) sends you through security again.

Terrible

Pros: -
Cons: -


(Guest Review by Awfuldoesnotevendescribe) It literally was the worst experience ever. I always travel have been all over the world in so many airports and this one was my far my worst experience. The people who work there are so rude, especially people who work international. When people get off a flight and after immigration they have to pick up luggage, that's how it goes down for many people. This is the only airport where a single persona must carry out all luggage with no carts. What's wrong with people? What's wrong with this airport? I'd rather pay from a beginnig and keep my cart until I exist the airport. The people who work at this airport is so rude they literally closed the door only because it was the first time I had experienced something like that. I will never be returning to this airport.
