    Anchorage– nice airport

             

    1.1.2018

    Pros: Nice shops with lots of AK items

    Cons: Not a lot of charging outlets

    Nice airport, lots of AK gift shop items available. Plenty of dining options McDonald's, Sushi bar and others. Plus a microbrewery that you can fill your growler at. Not a whole lot of charging outlets.

    Overnight Layover tips

             

    10.9.2017

    Pros: Stores stay open late, McDonald's open 24 hrs

    Cons: Noise

    I had a layover here from 11 pm to 5 am. I'd read the reviews here and had a terminal map so I had a good idea what to look for to get some rest. First of all my flight from Kodiak deplaned me outside so I had to enter the airport and go through security to get into the concourse, but there weren't long lines at midnight. Then I headed up some stairs to the "Sleeping Lady Lounge," thinking that this was the sleeping spot. There was an area with recliners but they don't recline, it looks like it is a theater-type area with a large screen. So I spent a while there in one of the recliners, trying to sleep, but there are continual loud announcements on the airport speakers so it was a hard go. After about half an hour I decided to move on. As I came downstairs from the Sleeping Lady Lounge, I noticed a "closed" sign blocking there stairs which hadn't been there a half hour before, so officially it was closed even though other people were sleeping up there. It appears this lounge is really a bar-type place but the name gives the wrong impression to a weary traveler.

    As I went down to Gate C9, I was surprised to see that many of the stores and shops in the airport were still open at midnight, so I spent some time looking around there (they closed at 1 AM).

    Then I went down to Gate C9, where the bush plane hangs from the ceiling. This was indeed a quieter area, the overhead announcements don't sound here I guess. I laid down on an empty set of seats with my coat over my head for a few hours of fitful Z's. I'd read reviews about potential thieves going through sleeping people's bags so I put my bag behind my legs. There was a floor polisher guy driving up and down the concourse on his appointed rounds every couple of minutes, so this was also noisy, it seemed as though he drove within inches of my bench. There was a children's play area near the hanging plane, and I was surprised that a group of noisy children were there playing on it at 2 AM!

    At 4 AM I gave up on trying to sleep anymore and I went down to the McDonald's for hot breakfast and coffee, which was a very nice way to start the day, then to my gate for my 5 AM departure.

    So I didn't get a lot of sleep here, but it could have been worse. The hot McDonald's breakfast/coffee made up for it though.

    Anchorage airport

             

    18.9.2014

    Pros: Quiet, safe

    Cons: Small seating groups

    My first and only experience sleeping in an airport. I felt safe, although I slept on my purse. There were a very few travelers. No security visible. Food concession with coffee opened early.

    (Guest Review by tallblondebirch) Main Terminal, inside security – I actually love in Anchorage and have taken TSAIA for granted. I've tracked all over and comparably it's consistently clean, the food is great, there are bars, free wifi, massage tables, a museum, an Alska sports hall of fame, and shopping for gifts and last minute/overlooked travel needs. It's not expensive compared to other airports, but of course prices are slightly high just because it's in Alaska.

    Anchorage is cold, Concourse C isn't.

    (Review by @airportfotos on Instagram) Concourse C (Alaska) – The Anchorage Airport is smaller than most major airport terminals within the US. Concourse C (Alaska Airlines) has many rows of chairs and 95% are armrest free, making it very easy for my buddy and I as well as many other passengers that were headed to rural Alaskan villages to get a good, nights rest. No blanket needed! The McDonalds on the secure side is open 24 hours a day and all the drinks are $1 making food very easy, and relatively cheap for Alaska standards. There is a small observation just before gate C1 where it is more quiet than the rest of the airport, but I strongly recommend the area under the plane hanging from the ceiling under gate C9
