A great airport! Slot machines everywhere, smoking lounges, just the vibe of Vegas everywhere! The baggage area is easy to find, lots of signage for which belt your bags will be on, and a boatload of ads for shows and such.

What a difference! The new terminal 3 is so much better than the old terminal 2. The building is spacious, bright I've been to Las Vegas many times since the 1980's and this last pass through on a plane change I saw a once beautiful airport reduced to a trash heap. Garbage everywhere, restrooms filthy. Slot machines have been added everywhere, crowding out passenger seating in the terminals. One would think with all that slot money they could afford additional cleaning staff. Avoid this airport if possible.

What a difference! The new terminal 3 is so much better than the old terminal 2. The building is spacious, bright and clean. Arriving from the UK was pretty smooth and efficient. It probably took about 45 mins to go through US Customs, collect my bags and exit. Staff including immigration are friendly. On the way back, I used the airport lounge which is a bit small compared to other lounges but had a nice choice of food and snacks and the bar staff were very nice. There isn't a lot of choice when it comes to duty free shops and the whole airport feels empty as there are a lot of departure gates but not enough international fights utilising them. Overall, a nice airport to fly into.

The D and E gates at LAS are very nice. The terminal is bright, clean, and offers good views of the runways and apron operations if you are in the D gates. The security line for the C and D gate was very long so be prepared for a 20 minute wait. My only complaint was the lack of choice when it came to finding something to eat. There were plenty of Starbucks but not a whole lot of other place.

Not overly impressed with this airport. We checked which took a while (Thomas Cook), to find that when we attempted to pas through security we were turned away because TC had not printed the boarding passes correctly, this caused stress to quite a few passengers. Once through security we found terminal 3 lacking in eateries and shops (been in better local airports). You can smoke through security in the casino areas.

I went to this airport last year in Vegas and it was quite crowded but I guess it was being renovated. The security people were nice and this year, I went back for my Vegas vacation and the airport looked impressive, spacious and all the amenities were accessible to passengers. There are good restaurants and stores with reasonable prices and the security people I met were respectful and helpful. I was so impressed with the wheelchair person provided to me at the airport as I needed a wheelchair. He was great, helped me in security, put all my stuff in trays and helped me get them back, including my shoes. This is my second time to go to Vegas and I can only say I wouldn't hesitate to go back again via this great airport.

Flew in from LGW on Virgin. Couldn't believe how straightforward exiting the airport was. Staff, including immigration, helpful and friendly. Flew out a week later, internal to Miami. No problems apart from long hike to D gate and way overpriced bottled water. To reviewers rating this as worst airport in the US, I'd suggest avoiding Miami - truly the worst airport in the US, and probably the world.

We travelled from NY to LAS and the arrival was smooth. It should be noted that we arrived at midnight and there were not many flights arriving at the same time, so we got our luggage quickly. I liked the train connecting Terminal D and Baggage Claim. The atmosphere at the airport deserves special attention - spacious halls, high ceilings, bright neon lights and slot machines. The airports is so close to the city that you can walk there on foot, but the shuttle service and buses are also available.

Not recommended for a plane change. In July, I had to change planes on Southwest, and it took me 15 minutes to walk to the next gate! That wouldn't have been so bad if it wasn't for the lack of air conditioning. Most of the walk was extremely hot, stuffy, and smelly. There were small little areas where the air actually worked, but not many. When I reached my gate, it too was overcrowded, warm and smelled. The attendants at the gate were aware of the issues, and implied that no solution would be forthcoming in the future because the area was so narrow, and was mostly bordered by windows on one side. I became so uncomfortable, that I took a 4 minute walk to the nearest "air conditioned" sections, and I sat on the floor, waiting for the next flight to board. I don't know about the other areas of this airport, since this I was only there due to a plane change on Southwest, but I will do my best to avoid this airport for any future connecting flights.

I was truly shocked at how run down Las Vegas airport was. Bathroom doors don't close properly forcing patrons to use the facilities with the door ajar. The soap dispensers were out of soap too. The shops and amenities were sparse at best. In general it is the most run down unkempt airport we've had the pleasure to leave.

Had to connect between concourse A and B and it was a travesty. Signage is horrible, 1 moving walkway in what seems like a half mile walk. Up and down, back and forth. One of the worst airports in the world.

Travelled to and from Las Vegas from the UK. Arrivals relatively pain free - good taxi queue, well organised according to how much baggage etc. International Departures (Terminal 2) was the worst ever. Queued to drop bags, so much for checking in online 24 hours ahead. The queuing started - first, to get on the escalator, second to go through security and then through a manual passport control. Finally into departure hall. 4 flights departing within a short space of time meant that the place was absolutely heaving with this relatively small amount of passengers. Duty free was pitiful, other shopping outlets grim and don't even get me started on the 'fast' food outlets.

McCarran airport has to be the worst US airport I have used! I flew domestically from San Francisco, it was relatively easy to get from gate (B17) to the luggage carousel. Luggage took an age to arrive. No obvious signs on how to get to the international terminal. International terminal arrivals area is one big joke! The waiting area had no toilets, nowhere to buy any food/drink, just a few rows of seats and a monitor. Departing wasn't much better, we'd arrived early so there was virtually no queuing to check-in. Getting through American security was its usual painful process – longish waits. There is virtually nothing post-security. Thankfully wifi worked. Not many toilets and they were dark and dingy. I see that there is a new international terminal opening up in a few months – it is sorely needed!

I flew to Las Vegas from London Gatwick and to San Francisco and back for a day trip. The domestic terminal is excellent. It is very clean, has several shops and cafes and plenty of seats at the gates. The TSA officers are also very friendly at that terminal. However the international terminal is very small, not as clean as the domestic one and there is not many places to eat at. There was no empty seats at my gate so I sat at another gate among passengers flying to Mexico. The TSA officers at the International terminal are also not as friendly as they are at the domestic one. I also noticed that when a flight to Mexico was boarding the announcements were only made in Spanish not English. If I fly to Las Vegas again I will fly into the domestic terminal.

Terminal 1 (divided into 3 concourses A, B and C) and used by Southwest, US Airways and Spirit among others, is dark, dirty and difficult to navigate through. Carpets are dirty, slot machines take up valuable floor space causing overcrowding, garbage isn't picked up as often as it should be, bathrooms are dirty and parts of the airport near the restaurants/snackbars and bathrooms smell funky. The taxi ranks and rental car shuttles are poorly managed and chaotic - at peak times it can take up to 30 minutes to get a taxi. The one positive about McCarran is that the TSA checkpoints are the best of any major airport in America - lines move quickly, agents are courteous and seem better trained than their counterparts at other US airports.

I had a 1st Class ticket with Virgin and the facilities are awful. Dull lounge with unhelpful staff. I ordered a Ham and Cheese sandwich which was stale and the wine wasn't much better. Hopefully when they open the new terminal in 2013 it should get better. Unfortunately they can't change the staff.

I've arrived and departed from this airport several times, each time from the D gates. It's a pretty long walk from check-in to the D gates and from the D gates to baggage claim. There is a tram to take for part of it, but it's still a pretty long walk. The D gates have a pretty good variety of dining and shopping options, along with the obligatory slot machines with it being Vegas. On my last trip, July 1st-July 12th, I got a big surprise. Baggage claim has always been notoriously slow in Vegas, but on this particular trip, I waited less than 5 minutes for my baggage. That means from gate to taxi took just about 15 minutes, which I'm sure must be record time in Vegas for somebody that's checked a bag.

Terminal 2 (international flights, not including Canada) is a totally different experience to the main terminal. While check-in and the security check were easy, once gate-side there is virtually nothing to do. There are a few tiny shops, the usual fast food chains and a small bar. What a contrast to the razzle dazzle of the city itself! I suggest that if you check in with plenty of time to spare, take the 5 minute walk over to Terminal 1 for any last minute shopping, food or drink.

Arrived and departed from Terminal D. It was pleasant to walk through and had plenty of services and restaurants. The slot machines are great, but they need the payment machines like every other casino in town. The connecting train was pleasant and efficient as well. No issues with luggage. On departure, the TSA screener seemed to be obsessed with my Canadian Passport.

True enough about the long run from the car-rental garage, but the airport itself ran smoothly on a departure to Vancouver. Can't do kerbside check in to Canada but I guess that's Homeland Protection or TSA or somebody. No money exchange until 8.00 which caused a rush. Lounge should be after security.

I have transited this airport and departed once. One thing for visitors to consider is that the consolidated rental car facility is very far from the airport terminals. While it is convenient in that you go to just one place regardless of which company you use, and there are then just two busses to choose from (depending on which terminal you are departing from), you have a long trip on the bus and need to allow for the extra time (and getting to the rental car facility by vehicle can be confusing, since you do not take the same main road as to get to the airport terminal). Once in the airport, processing was relatively fast; about par for most airport these days. Nothing to rave about, but also no big complaints. You do have a chance for some last-minute gambling before you get on your plane.

I found the airport to be busy but efficient We flew Southwest and by the time we walked to the baggage claim our luggage was already there, so no waiting. There were plenty of limousines and shuttles outside, so it was not difficult to get a ride to the hotel. The airport seemed very clean and had a sufficient amount of stores and restaurants. Coming back the check in line was long but went very quickly. No problems at all with this airport.

An insanely busy airport (at least it was when I went through it), but I found that it mostly functioned reasonably well. I arrived at Terminal 1 on US Airways, and had no issues with signage, although it was a long walk from the gate to baggage claim. My only issue was the delay in recovering my baggage due to confusion about which carousel it was on, and even this was cleared up after a few minutes. The ground transportation area was very busy but problem-free. For the flight back, the biggest obstacle was getting to the terminal through the extremely crowded lane for shuttle buses, taxis, etc on the Terminal 1 departures area. The driver eventually had to let us off some distance from where we needed to be, but everything went okay. The lineups for check-in looked extremely long, but there were lots of terminals for electronic check-in which kept things moving, and after this the wait to check baggage was pretty short. The TSA security lineups were also pretty fast. There were lots of shopping opportunities before going through security, and still some decent shopping and eating after going through security. The waiting areas were quite pleasant, and offered a good view of the airport ramps for an airplane nut. Overall, Vegas loses marks for the baggage handling hiccup and the congested taxi lanes at departures, but otherwise it functions pretty well at moving a lot of people through with minimal hassle.

I have had the misfortune to travel to LAS. I arrived on a domestic flight and have waited for my luggage for over an hour. Then, when I finally exited to airport, I waited for the car rental facility bus for over half an hour, and it was midnight. After finally getting to car rental agency, getting the car and getting to MGM Grand (which is about 10 minutes from the airport), I was in my room at 2.00 am. From landing to the hotel it took me 4.5 hours (the drive to the hotel was 10 minutes) in the middle of the night! This is the worst airport I have ever been to. OK, Paris Charles de Gaulle/Roissy is just as bad, but that's it. LAS is a disaster of an airport! If you can, avoid it!

I go to Las Vegas airport about 3 times a year and have experienced using both the domestic and international terminals both have good and bad points. The international terminal is much quicker to use on arrival even if you have to go through immigration the domestic terminals baggage reclaim is one of the worst in the world I've spent many times waiting over an hour for my luggage. The international terminal however has very limited facilities with nothing worth eating unless you like BK. The domestic terminal D gates are by far the best although limited eating facilities at least its clean and spacious.

The positives - close to the strip and easy to get to, and free WIFI (the only thing that you will get for free in Vegas). Negatives are many - passenger dropoff area has ony 2 lanes for cars and is extremely crowded; only 1 dropoff area for every airline; limited and bad food. No real restaurants. Very crowded baggage pickup, security lines can be very long, limited covered parking. Need to park in the outside overflow lot and walk to/from airline gates can be long. Besides the many casino based shops, there is limited interesting shopping

Terminal 1 is extremely busy with the volume of domestic flights but plenty of outlets and places to sit. Terminal 2 - of all the US airports Vegas was the friendliest in terms of staff and immigration was pretty quick too. It made a pleasant change to be greeted with a smile and for the immigration process to be completed quickly. Departing from Terminal 2, however is a totally different story. The terminal is to put it frankly more like a bus terminal waiting room. There is just one duty free shop - this must be the smallest in the world! and 3 eating options, we had a connecting domestic flight before our international flight back home and therefore had a wait of around 4 hours - it felt more like 40 hours. Worst airport terminal I have ever had the privilege of waiting in!

As a frequent visitor to the States, I have found Vegas airport to be the most pleasant to pass through. I generally arrive and depart through the D gates, and this terminal is one of the cleanest I have been in. The choice of food outlets and shopping is plentiful, and many of the gates have views of the strip! The only drawback seems to be baggage reclaim, which is painfully slow, especially when you just want to get to the casino!

We flew into Las Vegas for a 4 day trip from Toronto and where our arrival went smoothly, our departure was a different story. Our check in at Westjet was fine but there were serious problems with airport security. Out of at least a half dozen stations , they only had one station open although there were at least 4 different flights leaving at the time so there was a very long lineup. There were numerous security personnel standing around doing nothing at all so the problem wasn't staffing. They were without exception extremely rude to everyone coming through they seemed to be working deliberately slowly - perhaps a work to rule situation? There was a a large group of Japanese travelers with many seniors and they were treated terribly. Despite the fact that they all seemed to have their things in order, the personnel were extremely rude to them, barking out orders and behaving in a very boorish manner. When it got to be our turn, we were treated in a similar manner. I have no problem accepting that there is a need for good airport security and am happy to cooperate. Rudeness is bad enough but the incompetence displayed made me realize that passengers are not being protected properly. This whole ordeal certainly left a bad taste in our mouths and undoubtedly did the same for the others who were unfortunate enough to be there that evening. We pay money in airport taxes to at least in part be protected from whatever threats may be there and certainly deserve much better than this.

We are becoming frequent visitors to Las Vegas and, in many respects, I see it as a hassle free alternative to LAX and a a cheap alternative to PSP depending, of course, on your overall itinerary. The new combined Car Rental Centre is absolutely excellent and the associated shuttle service far more cohesive. This was, of course, one of the proposals for LAX voted down by mean minded politicians and NIMBY residents. T2 however, is a different story. It is still a dump as reported below. It should be ashamed of its entirely inadequate eating facilities. All services from T2 are obviously regarded as entirely secondary to those from T1.

Flew into LAS international terminal. Flights from Gatwick use Virgin 747-400. Sit as near the front as possible, so as to disembark as soon as possible. I was seated in row 35, but still had long wait to clear passport control. The luggage carousel was very long providing plenty of space to access the bags. Mine must have been one of the first as the staff took it off the carousel before I arrived and it was put against the far wall with several others. I only found it when I complained it had not arrived and started to use words like 'lost' to the staff. Short walk to the main domestic terminal where it is possible to check in for many of the hotels. At the time of my visit, there were no self service terminals in the check in area and the keen Virgin staff made sure all bags were not overweight - 23kg in economy, although it was possible to travel with two items of checked luggage. I understand the staff in the domestic terminal are also strict about a 50lbs weight limit too.

LAS is a popular international destination and has some catching up to do. International arrivals is not designed to cope with multiple arrivals and indeed these are scheduled separately. When we arrived on Maxjet we were on time and Virgin were late so their passengers were just ahead of us. Having said that, every possible line was open and they were working pretty fast. The immigration official was even quite charming in a curmudgeonly sort of way. The Alamo shuttle was tardy. For departure T2 is not the place to be. Check-in was fine. Bad design means that the security line which was not actualy that long, easily backs up on to the escalator which is potentially dangerous. TSA procedures border on the bizarre overkill but at least they are beginning to admit that. Through security facilities are absolutely minimal and as Maxjet don't yet have a lounge, quite inadequate.

I break the long journey from Sydney to London in Las Vegas. Its a great place to stop for the night, the only concern is if you are to arrive into Terminal D (United Airlines/Delta/American etc) you always expect about 30-45 minute wait for your luggage to arrive at the baggage claim. You would be advised not to bother rushing off the plane and down to the tram which takes you to the main terminal as you will only end up waiting for ages for your luggage to arrive. Take your time.. Vegas is also notorious for losing bags. The free wireless internet is a bonus though, just need to enter your email adress (very safe). You SHOULD take the freeway if you're going downtown; and maybe the extreme north strip (Stratosphere area.) The freeway may also be the best route to off-strip properties such as Rio, Gold Coast, and the Palms. But if you're staying in the popular mid to south strip area (between Mandalay Bay on the south and Wynn, Venetian or Treasure Island on the north) the freeway just adds unnecessary mileage and about $5 extra to the fare. The honest cabbie will take Swenson to Tropicana and then either Koval Lane or Paradise to an east strip property (Paris & Ballys area) or Las Vegas Blvd. or Industrial Ave. for west strip properties (Caesars, Monte Carlo, Mirage, etc.) Taking the freeway loops you around the south side of the airport and then takes you about a half mile west of the strip so you have to double back to the strip"

I was just back through there last week. Most of my comments from three years ago still apply, with the following caveats: (1) There are self- service check-in machines throughout the lobby, and most airlines are part of that system. That has really helped with the lines around the ticket counters. Southwest's, in particular, was quick to navigate. (2) The security checkpoints are remarkably efficient for the volume of passengers that go through them. This is even more important now that the "secret" checkpoint in the middle of concourse C is no longer there. They have video clips featuring Vegas entertainers to provide passenger instructions before they reach the checkpoints, but the volume needs to be louder. (3) Checked baggage service remains horribly slow.

My wife and I had to transfer flights in LV on our way to San Jose from Montgomery. We were on a Continental flight and there was no information on the Departure screens about our connecting flight. We asked a Continental agent and were told there was no information available because the flight was departing from another terminal. She told us to go to the AB terminal to get the information. We took the tram to the AB terminal but the signage was so confusing we ended up exiting the terminal and entering a large area full of slots. Couldn't find our way to the AB terminal and had to ask another airline's agent for assistance. If it wasn't for her specific directions, the way to the terminal was not obvious at all. After having to go through security again, we finally found the correct terminal. I travel a lot and have been through many airports (most of the majors), and have to say that McCarran was the most confusing I have ever experienced. It is ridiculous that information on all flights at the airport is not available from any terminal.

Arrival: can be a long walk from gate to baggage claim. Baggage area very crowded and chaotic but that's the way Vegas works and is a good introduction. Hotel check in and shuttle booking near belt one saves a lot of time. Departure: airport is a quick $15 taxi ride from the strip. Drop off zone appears quite chaotic but everyone seems to cope without fender benders. Check in and security were extremely busy but delay was minimal. Not too many food concessions available airside. Departure information can be flaky. Some monitors showed my flight, some didn't. Just head for the assigned gate to make sure there have been no changes.

Not a bad airport to depart from. Smoking laws are very lax and available in many places unlike the rest of the US, so those who have gone through security will be happy to know they will still be good once they have gone through security. Slot machines give a different way to be able to spend your time and money before a flight, even that chance to win. I was suprised that I was able to win 80 extra dollars before my Ted Flight to SFO.

Flew in and out of Las Vegas International w/c 5th March. Arrivals hall quick and efficient and baggage reclaim was very smooth. However for International departures the Lounge is limited with few places to eat (two fast food establishments) one newsagent and one duty free shop (quite small). Although clean for an International Lounge it is not a patch on any of the London Airports nor Orlando or other US Airports I have visited. It is not the sort of place you want to wait for three hours for your flight. If possible leave your Hotel as late as possible as the airport is only 15/20 minutes from the middle of the strip.

I have used LAS extensively over the past 2 years, I must say the domestic terminal especially the baggage reclaim is terrible I arrived there twice in July 05 and spent well over an hour waiting for my baggage. The international terminal is much better in many respects, although the eating and drinking facilities are limited it has a modern and cleaner feel. Also I have arrived there twice and have never had the problem with baggage reclaim.

Very smart modern airport with the only hassle been all the gaming machines in the way everywhere. I saw one of the gaming attendants have a go at a parent for letting his daughter "loiter" near the machines which was "against Nevada law". She was only sitting on a case not even noticing the machines. This airport needs to remember it's an airport not a casino. If they want machines zone them off with entry control and put some seating where the bandits were.

Flew into LAS over Christmas 2005. I was still able to get through all the craziness of the place on Dec 23 without much hassle. Flew in on Southwest into terminal 1 at the C-gates. As soon as you get out the jetway there are slot machines in the waiting area. I found this to be somewhat of a hassle to walk around all the folks gambling when I wanted to get out the airport. Smoking lounges were fairly spaced out throughout the concourse, and they were filled with thick smoke all in the rooms. Finding the train to the main terminal was a little hard fo find over those darn slot machines. Have to pay attention to the signs very carefully, or you can miss the trains. The baggage claim was overly congested but remember this was Dec 23. Getting to the rental cars was a short ride to the section of the airport behind the terminals and parking garage. At least they are not off site like so many other airports. Overall the airport is a nice size, with a decent amount of places to eat and shop. Ample amount of security gates for all the gates. Just make sure you plan enough time to get though ticketing if you not flying with an e-ticket. Another good thing is that the airport is at the south end of the strip.

We flew into Vegas from San Francisco with United Airlines. After a 3 night stay, we were then due to fly onto LA. What a fiasco at LAS airport! We arrived 2.5 hours before we were due to take off. We queued for 40 mins, only to be told when we got to the desk that we had to check in at another desk as we had '4 S's' on our check-in card. We then queued for another 1.5 and endeavoured to get help from a staff member (who were extremely rude and uncaring). Basically, we had half an hour to get through a vigorous security check (due to having 4S's on our boarding cards). No matter how many times we told them at our flight was due, they just made us hang around. We had to run to the departure gate after hearing our names being called numerous times. Not one apology was received and the staff just seemed intent on making life difficult. Believe me, we're in no hurry to return to the States!

My first visit to Las Vegas was to London Gatwick departing from the international departures lounge which was very basic. A few seats, some small shops and that was all. The second visit was from LAX so I arrived into the domestic lounge which I can only say is 100% better than the international lounge. There was lots of places to eat and sit. However the third time I visited LAS I got to depart from the domestic lounge and found it hard to find decent food. The only place that looked decent had a massive long queue, with staff that didn't seem to realise that people are on a time constraint to catch flights. Overall though one of the best airports I've been to for cleanliness and space.

Restaurants are the Worst! In the past year I had the misfortune of using the terminal which houses Southwest. The variety of restaurants, their layout, lack of seating as compared to many other U.S. and foreign airports leave much to be desired. There's little variety; no top notch dinner restaurant. And the prices leave much to be desired. Why shouldn't the public have access to a great variety of restaurant's where you may want to come back? Why do we have to pay 30 to 40% more for the privilege of dining there?
