John H. from Tacoma, WA says: “Best international airport in Denver! Thank goodness @BurgerKing is open 24 hours a day… The pedestrian bridge from the terminal to Concourse A is fun, it goes over an aircraft thoroughfare so you can watch the planes taxiing beneath you as you traverse the path to your gate. Additionally, the security lines over the pedestrian bridge can oftentimes be shorter than those within the concourse itself. Here, the USO is immaculate. I’ve been to airports in the south (notably in San Antonio) where one would EXPECT better USO quality, and haven’t found it. The USO here is unparalleled. Big, comfy chairs, lots of outlets, large plasma TVs with ESPN or the news on, a sleeping area, internet access both in the USO and on computers there as well. And there’s food, drink, and all the distraction one could want. I missed a flight because I stayed there too long once. The art in the terminal is interesting, to say the least. It’s post-American, post-Apocalyptic, and it’s (in general) post-Good Taste. Not my favorite place to look at art. But again, it’s the best international airport in Denver, so you take what you get.”
Audra W. from Chicago, IL says: “Huge!!! Denver is a large airport and Southwest boards quick. This means, don’t go far or you are running back to your gate. Very clean, kinda reminds me of Midway but much better. There is an array of places to eat and it is very comfortable. Flying into Denver was truly an experience. The bumps and roller coaster feeling was unforgettable. After asking and commenting to others about this, I was told it’s common due to the air. Geeze! Denver airport was very nice/clean, SWA pilot was great…. but the ride in still has my stomach in knots.”
