McCarren International Airport was easy to use, good shuttle service with a lot of competition between shuttle providers. Bag came in a timely manner. Food choices OK, but could have a few more choices.

The McCarran International Airport looks new and is quite nice inside. I was surprised to see slot machines in the airport! There's a nice selection of stores, but I got trapped by a person from the Hormeta skin care kiosk. I had a hard time getting away and was worried I'd run into him elsewhere in the airport. The walk... More

Las Vegas is my home and I travel through this airport several times a week. The new terminal is very nice. Staff at Delta are some of the best.

McCarran seems to be a well functioning and well provisioned airport, we didn't have any trouble with flights, baggage or security on either the inbound or outbound leg. The only reason that this is not a Very Good or Excellent review was the length of time that we spent queuing at the US Border and the again after baggage claim.... More

Really easy check in, very pleasant check in staff, smooth security channel, nice yet smallish range of shops, comfy seats with great views of the runway.

Nice, medium sized airport (smaller than expected) that works well enough. But really, you need the machines in the airport? Maybe a couple of fake ones to set the scene, but that would be enough. Sure, it's cute when you've just arrived, but when you're on the way out, you're so sick to death of the sound of them that... More

Small, well organised airport, where you can start or finish your holiday with a flutter! I last visited almost a decade ago and McCarran seems brighter and more modern. Not lots to do, but staff are friendly and helpful and it's a great gateway to fabulous Las Vegas!

The airport is a moderate functional airport with limited dining appeal...especially at breakfast you will be extremely disappointed if you think you will wait until the airport to grab a leisurely bite...don't ruin a good vacation on a low note. Vegas offers so much amazing food that you leave feeling you are in Toledo ( all due respect to those... More

no charging stations which is a huge issue. People walking around with their phone looking for the very few outlets that others are using for a very long time.( Dallas has charging stations between the rows of seats at each gate.) Food venues are open late at the gates which is helpful especially while traveling with children.
