Very scary and costly experience. My jewelry boxes were in my purse and once they went through the scanner, I noticed that my purse is light. I called the security for explanation. They said that there is nothing they can do. The jewelry worth about $5000. There should be some investigation but I am not hopeful. Do not carry anything... More

Coming in is great. It's easy & it has a tram that takes you from the gate area straight to the baggage claims. It is wheelchair friendly & they usually have several employees waiting to help. Leaving out remember to come early, the lines are usually really long. Handicap individuals usually cut the line so that they have more time... More

This airport is more like an attraction. There are slot machines throughout the airport. They have great places to eat and some shops. I was most impressed with how well they run this airport. It works like a well oiled machine

Check in & security were run extremely efficiently. Only a couple of duty free stores but plenty of slots if you still feel the need to play.!

As a first visitor to this airport you can be overwhelmed by the size and the lack of signs makes it difficult to navigate. We were lucky enough to follow other passengers to get to baggage claim. On the plus side the rental care area was very organized.

Typical Airport. My issue was the poor lighting and signage at the airport. Hard to read at night for terminals and directional location. Car Rental Return is also bad at night. The signage is bad, and hard to find. With all the lights in Vegas, they can do so much better. They don't want you to leave!! Too many slot... More

Nothing personal but this airport needs to prioritize better, lots of space but over taken by slot machines. First thing when u get out the gate you see is slot machines, how about better signing for baggage claim at which terminal? We accidently went to terminal 1 instead of terminal 3 for our baggage , apparently we weren't the only... More

Big, well lit, many shops and places to eat. Security is not very verbal. They expect too much of the folks going thru security. It is alright to talk nicely to others. Signs make it very easy to find the places you need to get too. Restrooms are clean.
