Orlando Airport Review

by web-administrator (January, 2017)


Pros: -
Cons: -


(Guest Review) Every summer I take a team of teenagers on a month long mission trip overseas. I have traveled in and out of this airport at least 15 times. The team is dropped off hours and hours early and often sleeps in the airport. There is nook after nook of seating areas along the ticket counter areas, large enough to squeeze 20people and 2 duffle bags each into, using floor space (if you are well organized and you are there early enough to get a whole area. Those area set ups are along the window, so well protected. CARPET is the biggest part of sleep-ability of this airport. It covers a lot of area including many of the best nooks for sleeping. Lots of choices in the food court. Chick-fil-a offers free refills on drinks all day long. Cons are frequent loud announcements and security lines can be long. Security at the side with gates 1-59 is usually worse.

Garbage

(Guest Review) This airport is garbage, the security lines take forever to get through, there is no smoking section and the food courts run out of almost every kind of food they carry.

Poor customer experience

Pros: -
Cons: -


(Guest Review by Edwina Mitchell) Arrived at the Lou he to ask about access and was greeted by a rude employee who was unhelpful, condescending and would prevent me from using United and United lounge services in the future. I recommend you refrain this employee and I would love a follow up on this.

(Guest Review by Luke hagman) Hello, Orlando. I was just sleeping with nine ours to spare and gentleman came up and kicked my foot say I need to go. Busses are hear. I jumped right up and went outside. I then realized I had 1.5 hours left and that they where not my shuttle. He came and got even more stearn with me. I masked what the difference was if I waited inside or not since I was a customer. I was still polite up to this point. He made a big deal about it and a lady stepped in and told him to lay off that I was a army veteran. I agreed and told him I faught for this country. And asked if he. Would show me the law's stating where I was in the wrong. I then told him I might report him and he tucked tail and left. I'm sure u probably heard of his disrespect before, otherwise I'm sure he will expose himself and his rude behavior again someday. Thanks you Orlando for all everything else that you did for me:)

Orlando Airport Review

by web-administrator (August, 2016)


Pros: -
Cons: -


(Guest Review) My 3 kids and I decided not to bother getting a hotel room for our last night. Our flight left at 6:30 so we thought it would be easier to go there at midnight and sleep there for a few hours before check in. I was happy that there were quite a few couches and chairs to relax and sleep on close to our United check in. The only problem was staff were extremely loud and inconsiderate. I definitely recommend staying in this airport but wear headphones to block out the noise. Nice that Dunkin Donuts and McDonalds are open. I would stay here again without hesitation!

(Guest Review) I liked that they had a hotel inside the airport. I slept at the gate to save money, but the option was there. Also, security was a breeze. No issues.

Orlando Airport Review

by web-administrator (January, 2016)


Pros: -
Cons: -


(Guest Review) this may well be my favourite airport. I have passed through many times over the years. spotlessly clean. can't fault any staff member. quiet, light and bright doesn't feel crowded. good food court and a couple of other restaurants also a good sports bar. great transport links, comfortable and plentiful seating. armchairs and benches that are good for a nap. as with the whole usa security is a nightmare, but what can you do? after a couple of visits camped out I decided to try the hotel that forms part of the terminal, great hotel all rooms have a balcony either facing out of the building or down onto the terminal itself, very coo for people watching. also has a decent small gym and lovely sunny pool. have also been lucky enough to get a day room at the hotel during a daytime layover, heaven!

Orlando Airport Review

by web-administrator (February, 2016)


Pros: -
Cons: -


(Guest Review) I dislike this airport very much. There are little food options available, unless you want the typical 'chains'. Even if you do want to eat at these places, the people are rude, not courteous, and the selection of food is subpar. There is a definite lack of seating at the gates. They have a 'hub and spoke' type of terminal and at the 'hub' there is plenty of seating but no one is using it because they are so far from the gates.

Orlando Airport Review

Pros: -
Cons: -


(Guest Review) SA I.D. checking was horribly disorganized worst I've seen at any airport. Took more than 1 hour to get through TSA on a non-holiday weekday. Disorganized mob (i.e. no lines or supervision) when approaching the TSA ID checking stations. Then, the stations closest to the x-ray maze lane allowed their travelers to cut the line and enter the maze directly, instead of going behind the people at the farthest TSA station. Therefore the people at the farthest station (where I was) could not move forward while those at the stations closest to the maze kept cutting through. So despite checking my luggage 90 minutes before flight time, I missed my flight and had to spend the night at the airport. There is a HYATT hotel inside the terminal, for those who can afford it (I could not). The TSA stations close after the day's last flight, so if you leave the boarding gate area, you won't be readmitted until TSA opens at 5 AM. The main terminal waiting area and a few fast food shops remained open all night, and there were plenty of electrical outlets for charging electronics. Other than the hard floor, no place to lie down (armchairs only).

police sweeping through airport

by web-administrator (November, 2015)


Pros: -
Cons: -


(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

by web-administrator (October, 2015)


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 >>

Pros: -

(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

by web-administrator (March, 2015)


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.

Orlando Airport Review

by web-administrator (December, 2014)


Pros: -
Cons: -


(Guest Review) This airport is infested with cockroaches and there is a fat little cop from the Orlando Police Department who will show up on a segway and kick you out of the airside if you're stranded there for more than a couple of days. The cleaning crew is noisy and awful and constantly barking at each other in Spanish at all hours of the night.
