Crowded Terminal 1 C Gates
Terminal 1 C gates is probably one of the most crowded airport terminal I have ever visited in the United States. Southwest airline is the primary airline that takes passengers at this terminal. I am not sure if it was the time of the day or the day of the week, but the entire terminal was so packed of people, that literally I had to walk the entire terminal a few times before I could find a seat. The entire terminal I think has more space dedicated to slot machines then to seating areas or places people can get some work done like charging stations or work desks. It seems people come to this place to gamble or to see some to local entertainment shows. Well, if I have to ever travel and I don’t really need to come to Vegas. I would avoid this airport. Noticed departure monitors are not conveniently located as at most US airports I visited. Plenty of dining and drinking options. WiFi was pretty strong and it is free. Had not issues with it.
Ride share available Uber and Lyft
Wow, if you arrive in Vegas, you will see that there is no other airport like it. Video walls and slot machines everywhere. Probably the best is that you dont have to use taxi from the airport anymore. Uber and Lyft have designated pick up area. It is hard to explain where it is located. So at the airport ask informartion abour the Ride share pick up area and depending where you are located you will be able to find it. There are signs Ride Share to take you to the spot.
