Santo Domingo Airport (SDQ) Rude and Insulting Staff

by Dave (January, 2011)


Reason for Stay: Checking in and had to wait
Where: Landside and Airside
Pros: Nothing
Cons: Rude insulting Staff.


I had a horrible experiance when departing from the Dominican Republic from SDQ Santo Domingo Las Americas Airport. While leaving at the Customs check the Agent was very rude to me and my wife. The Agent was talking to me like i was 5 years old when i gave him my passport he told me to look at him so he can see my face in a nasty manner. Then he said go pay the Turist tax like a piece of trash. When i arrived he then asked for another I.D. other then my passport so i showed him my Veterans ID Card. He then asked if i ever been deployed to Iraq and i said yes. Then he said that i should not return because i came back crazy. I held my composure and when i sat down to wait for the plane i decided to see if i can speak to a supervisor on what happened. When i asked one of the employees to speak with a supervisor they said they would report it continued >>

clueless

Where: Airside


I have traveled through hundreds of airports around the world with only carry-on luggage, including a folding umbrella, but it was only in Santo Domingo where I was prevented from taking the umbrella. Then, in a subsequent search before taking the plane back to the States, I saw that a passenger was required to leave three bottles of liquids that exceeded the limits. It appears that security at this airport needs some retraining.

Just for one night, it was OK!

by ReyRico (June, 2009)


Reason for Stay: Early flight departure
Where: Landside and Airside


We almost spent an entire night at SDQ in order to catch an early flight to JFK; there are hotel options 15-20 mins, away but not worth considering in our case due to the departure time of our flight. Fast-food options prior the security checkpoints and around the arrivals area are available but close well before midnight. With limited seating across the airlines' counters hall, we checked our bags, cleared security and headed for terminal B's gates area, where seats were clean but the cushioning not that comfy. Wandering around just before the duty free stores closed, we came across the seating area around the gates at terminal A's departures satellite where we settled in...although no places to grab a bite to eat were open, seats were ample and cushioned, little or no activity was heard and dimmed lights around allowed us to sleep a bit continued >>

Too tight to pay 22 for a room at 8.30pm.

by lordlucan (October, 2007)


Reason for Stay: Too cheap for a hotel room
Where: Landside


After the last flight leaves 9.30pm. Airport is empty and open all night. No hassles from staff. Long hard wooden benches to sleep on. Passengers start to arrive at around 4am for the morning flights.
