Arrival

We landed de-planed and waited for the others to get off and we were in Terminal D.  We walked to find the metro or regional rail line.

We brought our rail tickets, $30 later. We missed that due to my going to the bathroom so we had to wait the 30 min.

From what I saw it was an OK airport.

Departure

We got to the airport about 2 hours early due to the late flight. We left from terminal D as well. 

We walked right up and walked thru the TSA precheck. The others had to wait about 20 min. I like TSA precheck so far so good.  Makes standing in line nice.

We got some food and we waited. It was a smooth take off, but the plane was full and it was very tight and I couldn’t do much.

Opinion

Well, we really didn’t get to take a tour of it or have time to look around. It was simple to come land walk out and get aboard the regional rail and go into the city.  It was nice to walk to the train and from the train to the terminal D.
