replying to @travelskills @travelskills A1. Favorite one in my area is Long Beach, CA (LGB). It's just so cozy and has great food options despite it being a smaller airport. I also like that baggage claim is outdoors! So very California. #TravelSkills

replying to @JohnnyJet @JohnnyJet @united @flyLAXairport I have a love/hate relationship with #LAX. I know it inside out, but from Orange County, it can be a pain to get to! #TravelSkills

A1. ✈️ Of the large ones, Orlando International MCO. Its layout efficiently gets you to gates without confusion or seemingly endless walking, its cheerful, & its ponds & landscaping give a nice welcome while landing. #TravelSkills

replying to @DonNadeau @DonNadeau I had one of my most memorable TSA interactions there - so pleasant. and as a Disney fan, I also love the welcome wall message to Walt Disney World there. #TravelSkills

replying to @LandLopers @LandLopers @DonNadeau It's Disney on steroids! And they make it so easy to get to, with the Magical Express direct from MCO. You're immersed in all that Disney Magic from the minute you leave the airport. #travelskills

Q2 Favorite airport outside the U.S.? Why? #TravelSkills

ThatsVy

replying to @travelskills @travelskills A2. The Singapore Changi airport still stands out to me every time. So many cool amenities (and this was long before they had a water slide!). I also thought London Heathrow was amazeballs #TravelSkills

A2: Here are some of the reasons to love Changi Airport in Singapore. Nowhere else I've been comes anywhere close. #travelskills https://t.co/NqkEE1vsBI

ThatsVy

replying to @timleffel @timleffel My choice too. I haven't been in over 10 years, but it's still the most memorable international airport in my mind's eye. #travelskills

Q2 Favorite airport outside the U.S.? Why? A2 LHR. It starts with the view when landing and ends with a super efficient ride into the city center. The new terminal is gorgeous too. #TravelSkills

ThatsVy

replying to @bszweda @bszweda I traveled there solo a few years ago and I didn't know what to expect. LHR made it so easy to get into the city via the Tube. So impressed. #TravelSkills

replying to @JohnnyJet @JohnnyJet @LuxeTiffany @IndraPetersons A3. My most recent lounge experience was the @emirates lounge in Dubai when I was en route to the Maldives. After a 16-hour flight, a shower and a hot meal were so welcome! #TravelSkills

replying to @JohnnyJet @JohnnyJet @andrewzimmern @AdamRichman @chefjoseandres A4. I like that I can get a bowl of clam chowder and then pack a live lobster to take home from Logan BOS airport - is the best airport for dining? Maybe not, but future lobster eating FTW. #TravelSkills

replying to @united @united TIP I like to grab a @ChickfilA sandwich at ATL or DEN. Easy to pack in carry-on, and not too smelly for in-flight dining! #TravelSkills

ThatsVy

replying to @cjmcginnis @cjmcginnis @united @ChickfilA Right there with you, sir! @ChickFilA, anytime. #TravelSkills

Q5 What amenities matter most to you in an airport lounge? #TravelSkills

ThatsVy
1

replying to @travelskills @travelskills A5. Some quiet from the hustle and bustle of the terminal. On a long travel day, sometimes a comfortable chair with a view (rather than constantly circling a gate looking for a seat) is the nicest amenity I could enjoy. #TravelSkills

replying to @ThatsVy @ThatsVy We agree with you, Vy! Our United Clubs have lots of comfy chairs to stretch out and relax between flights. #TravelSkills ^CT

replying to @LandLopers @LandLopers A6. My hometown airport is John Wayne (SNA). They have color coded columns with numbers to help make pick-up easier! "Mom, I'm at the Green Column #5" rather than "I'm under the @United sign!" #travelskills

replying to @LandLopers @LandLopers @united They've upped their food game - and who doesn't want to take off from the runway like a rocket every once in a while? :) #TravelSkills

replying to @ThatsVy @ThatsVy @united That was actually a problem last time. We were delayed 2 hours because the plane was too heavy. Took them forever to find a work around #travelskills

replying to @LandLopers @LandLopers @united Blame that sound ordinance! #travelskills

Q8 Share your tips for making the boarding (or deplaning) process quick and easy for everyone! #TravelSkills

replying to @JohnnyJet @JohnnyJet A8. Be courteous and stay in your seat for those who have tight connections. It's amazing to me how many people rush out of their seats only to stand in the aisle and block everyone else from getting out. #TravelSkills

replying to @ThatsVy @ThatsVy @JohnnyJet Yes! I almost missed a tight connecting flight because a fellow passenger wouldn't let me pass her in the aisle. I told her I had a honest reason; she still said no. I had to jump in front of her to get by. #TravelSkills

replying to @united @united A7 My favorite is Tom Bradley International Terminal (TBIT) at LAX with its integrated environmental media system. It has seven digital media screens integrated into the interior architecture that displays entertainment and information to passengers. #TravelSkills

ThatsVy

replying to @JohnnyJet @JohnnyJet @united So cool. Ever since they upgraded the terminal, I try to find every excuse I can to fly out of there. #TravelSkills

replying to @united @united A9 Okay, I admit it. Even tho I try to eat less carbs, I usually fall for @GarrettPopcorn at Chicago ORD (@fly2ohare)! Esp the cheese/caramel mix! OMG. #TravelSkills

replying to @cjmcginnis @cjmcginnis @united @GarrettPopcorn @fly2ohare Chris, I'll take your @GarrettPopcorn and then find my way to the nearest @Potbelly sandwich counter! I seek that sandwich out anytime I'm there! #travelskills
