Restaurant details
Reviewed March 26, 2014

We had been traveling for four days and we just couldn't face the usual airport terminal food. We found First Flight and decided this would be our best option. It was better than we expected. Our server was Antoine was attentive and informative, making a number of good suggestions and serving our food promptly as we had another plane to catch. The Ocean roll was $13 and the Orville roll was $12. That was plenty of food for the two of us. Yes the food is a little expensive and the wine is also, but it is an airport. There are no bargains.

Good sushi, go with CLT roll for spice and good taste! High prices but it is an airport so its to be expected.

The prices rose since I was there a little over a year ago. We paid $13 for "ocean roll" and $9 for philadelphia roll. Wine was $10.50 a glass and beer was $10 glass. Sushi is still decent, although not spectacular. So now it's just a nice place for a sushi that has great service.

After two weeks living on fried, fried and more fried food - this was heaven! Freshly made, delicious and great service. Could eat it all again (although kids refused to eat Sushi and opted for papa johns instead!)

The sushi was average in quality, not freshly made and pricey, even for airport fare. The plus side is that we had not expected to find a sushi place in an airport
