As mentioned earlier, this is a poor airport to arrive from an international location and try to make a domestic connection. We had 2.5 hours and barely made our connection. Problems are long queues at immigration (common at many airports nowadays), only one security checkpoint open for departures, long waits for rail connecting the terminals, etc. The domestic airport looks quite nice, but had no time to check it out as we were running. Figure at least 3-3.5 hours for a connecting flight from this airport (int'l to domestic).

Connecting domestically to an international flight on Delta, as it is a major for them. Not impressed! As I exited my gate I entered directly into a restaurant, which is very disorienting, and seems to be their design strategy now. Many of the gates are not just gates with waiting areas, rather restaurants, shops, and other facilities. When departing, the gate area for the international flights, around gate G4, were packed with people and rather claustrophobic, and there was nowhere to sit unless you wanted to be in one of the restaurants. This particular day, the outside temperatures were close to 100 F and it was hot in the terminal. Also, the distance between gates can be quite far. There are some good concessions, as there are plenty of them, but the airport has low ceilings, feels old and tatty, and could use a big makeover. As I can choose many Delta hubs in the US to get to and from Narita, I will not choose this one again.

The best airport I have experienced. Many places to charge a cell phone or use a laptop. Many pay phones, reasonably quiet, beautifully furnished. Carpeting is new and helps keep terminals quiet. Has a salad bar and fresh fruit. Free Wifi. Only point of improvement would be the restrooms. I was in Terminal C. The women's room had very cramped stalls that were difficult to get in and out of with baggage. They may be upgrading restrooms in other terminals, but I am not sure of this.

Overall very acceptable on food and shop amenities. Layout and signage pretty easy. Feels a bit cramped with low ceilings, but nothing too oppressive. Security lines were the longest lines I have ever seen for screening. Condition of most of the restrooms I have seen in the concourses were either disgusting or beyond disgusting. The newly renovated restrooms are nice, but could use more stalls and sinks. With regards to the conditions of the restrooms in the concourses, it's either not cleaned enough or perhaps not monitored at all. Did not ruin my first impression of MSP, but it didn't help either.

The airport itself is good, trying to find the place if you are not a city resident is another story. I fly into the Twin Cities about 4 times a year to go north. I get out easily enough, but coming back into the city is almost always a nightmare; even with GPS. Every major city I know has airport signage about 15 or 20 miles out of the city - giving you both directions and some peace of mind that you are on the right track. The only airport sign I ever find in MSP is about a mile from the airport - while we're busy doing detours. Last week, I was driven to the airport from the Range and we were following GPS. We gave ourselves an extra hour. Missed the flight, partially because of very nice but insanely thorough security guards who made my daughter-in-law open all of her baby food, confiscated the ice pack in her cold container for the baby's milk and basically held up everyone for about an extra 20 minutes.

I would love to tell you about my experience in the airport, but we never got to see it. We arrived from overseas with 2 hours + to make our connecting domestic flight. We spent the entire time waiting in the passport control line, where 4 officers one by one checked the entry documents for over 400 people from varying airlines. And we were in the "US passport holders" line! We finally cleared passport control, then customs, and ran across the airport only to miss our flight by five minutes. What I can't believe is why they seemed so overwhelmed with the number of passengers. It's not like these planes are showing up without notice or anything. In my lone experience, I would not enter the US or make connecting international flights through Minneapolis St. Paul until the US Border Patrol there changes their service.

Parking at Terminal 2 is unacceptable and poorly communicated. Arriving at Lindbergh only to find out you need to go nearly two miles away, park, take the escalator, take the light rail, take the tram just makes the hassle of air travel worse. The parking seems to be more about the convenience of maintenance for MSP than for the convenience of the traveler. Lots of holiday decorations and heaven knows, lots of advertisements, but give me moving walkways that work, reasonable queues and most important - on-time departures and arrivals!

I have been to MSP a couple of times and departing has never been a problem, the service is very efficient and security has never been an issue. On arrival I was disappointed with how I was treated. I come to Minneapolis to visit a friend twice a year, and stay for no more than 3 weeks. I was treated as if I intended to stay illegally and was made to feel guilty for something I had no intention of doing. I know these people are only doing their jobs, but when I connected through Chicago I was never subjected to such interrogation. I was welcomed with a smile and a very friendly "welcome to America". I have to admit, it puts me off wanting to fly direct to Minneapolis again.

We arrived late for a connection flight. We had 20 minutes to get to the next gate all the way on the other side of the airport. I would recommend that you have more than 2 hours for connection time. The airport is messed up and very hard to get around. We never made it to our destination.

In a nutshell, never take a connection flight to this airport without leaving at least 2 hours in between connections or else you will have to due a little workout in the airport just to get from one terminal to the other while looking at the watch and crossing fingers. And if you miss your flight you will have to beg Delta airlines to rebook you, that's of course if you find someone in the terminal to rebook you. Just imagine a large gym with people sprinting all over and there you have it, Minneapolis airport.

I have been quite satisfied with my experiences at MSP. I must agree that some of the concourses (C especially) seem quite long, but it never hurt anyone to walk a little bit (there are moving sidewalks for a good part of the C concourse anyway if walking isn't your thing). The signage within the airport is quite good, and it is a very clean airport. Can't say much about the retail options as I've never understood shopping at airports. I feel the food options are rather good. Others have pointed out the fact that it can be a bit pricey to fly out of MSP, but I have found there to be much fewer delays at MSP than at O'Hare. It's nice to have the non-stop options that Delta provides. The three daily non-stops to Amsterdam are wonderful for connecting to many cities in Europe.

The size of MSP and the length of some concourses (especially G and C) are rightly (in)famous; there is, however, a little-known way for departing passengers to deal with this. There is a pedestrian bridge between Concourses G and C over the access road; the middle of this bridge can be accessed directly from the Red and Blue parking ramps. Security and check-in can be done here, but baggage check cannot be. NOTE: Only Northwest/Delta passengers can check in here. It would be possible for arriving passengers to leave security here and then take the tram from the parking ramps to the main terminal to pick up baggage, but whether this would be faster than walking the concourses I cannot say.

Checked in around midday for a late afternoon NWA flight. No crowds, fast simple kiosk check in and very helpful bag drop lady. Only one place to eat landside so decided to go thru security (quick, easy and pleasant) and find a restaurant/fast food outlet. Plenty of places to eat and drink airside. It is a deceptively big airport and some gates involve a long walk. But there are plenty of moving footways and an electric cart pick up service at specific points around the concourses. Signage was clear, departure info everywhere, toilets clean, plenty of empty gate lounges to 'get away' from the throng for a while. Some gates become quite crowded just before departures. Pleasant experience overall.

The airport is aesthetically beautiful, but it is not set up for easy access to other concourses/gates, and baggage, this is especially true for those on small commuter planes that use the B and C concourses. After flying packed like sardines in planes not designed to accomodate anyone over 5'5" and 150"s, you then have to walk from, what feels like downtown St. Paul, to get to the main concourse. If you need to go to another concourse you are hopeful that you have the time or are phsyically able to do so. The main point of this is don't ever count on the Tram on Concourse C to be working. In the last 4 months the times I have flown, which is often, I have been able to use the tram 3 times. Landing yesterday, 4-16-2009 at gate B 13, I found out that it will be down for at least 10 days to replace the cable sytem. Which is wonderful if it was well used and several years old but it is less than 5 years old I believe! Again if you are training for a marathon you will love the airport. If not be prepared to walk, or if late run!

What makes MSP not bad is security always moves fast no matter how crowded. All the check in counters are within one roof and the concourse are connected which means no need to take any trams (although that option is still there if you dont want to walk a whole lot). It is spacious than most of the airport I have been to like Phoenix, Vegas, LAX etc. Shops are decent. Baggage are is not all that posh but not dirty either. You can pick up your bag without much hassel and be on your way. The best part is the ground transportation. You have light rail that you can take.

Travelling from Canada to Europe via Minneapolis/St. Paul was less trouble than experienced. Outbound, most Canadian passengers can take advantage of U.S. Customs and Immigration pre-clearance, which is a fairly painless experience at smaller airports such as Winnipeg, and go straight to their connecting flight on arrival. Clearing U.S. Customs and Immigration on the way back to Canada was a breeze at MSP thanks to short lineups and affable staff. There's a good selection of airside stores and restaurants, too. Ubiquitous TVs tuned in to CNN are a mixed blessing: they just add to the din at a crowded gate, but if you can find an empty gate, you can stretch out, relax and watch the news while waiting for your connecting flight.

This has been my home airport for several years. Downsides: size (I suggest at least 60 minutes between flights), price (Northwest's fault, not the airport), lack of airside transportation between terminals, and not enough shops/food landside. Also, the baggage claims are old and can easily back up (I heard recently that they will be replaced in the near future). Now for the good parts. Plenty of diverse, reasonably priced shopping and food airside and clear signage throughout. The Customs/Immigration staff, while not overly friendly, were very professional and reasonably quick. Also, I have never seen security or (Northwest) bag check lines longer than 10-15 minutes). There is an easy, fast light-rail connection to/from downtown Minneapolis. There is also a separate underground tram from the parking ramps to the terminal, eliminating the need to carry your bags outside. The entire facility is clean and well-lit. For those with a 2-3 hour layover, there is a little-known observation tower in Concourse D (go to the block in the center of the concourse and all the way up the stairs) which is usually uncrowded and a very nice place to relax. Overall, it can be large and expensive but it is otherwise redeemed by atmosphere and ease of use.

I had a connection flight through MSP to Mason City, IA, a city served with only three daily flights. Even though I had arrived some 15 minutes late inbound from Newark, I still assumed I had enough time to make my connection flight. That was until MSP came into play. I had originally had approximately 45 minutes to connect flights, and even with the 15 minute inbound delay, it still left me (and my older aunt who was traveling with me) 30 minutes to go from one gate to the other. I took off in a rather fast-pace walking from one gate to another, following the overhead signs to my connection terminal. Following the directional signs, it took me nearly 20 minutes to walk between my two gates, mind you, walking at the pace of a 20-some year old, sprinting at times, once I kept looking at my watch. In the end, I arrived at my connection-departure gate 5 minutes prior to departure, the departure door had already been closed, and I missed my connection flight. In a nutshell, MSP is a much, much too spread out airport, which makes a connection of less than 90 minutes nearly impossible. As a result of this, I will never be booking a flight that offers a connection though MSP again. I will happily pay extra to avoid this airport.

A clean and friendly airport with lots of shops for all your needs and plenty of seating area. Plenty of nearby gates, for eating while you hang around. There is a family room here too for resting up where there are children travelling. If they had seating without arms that you could lay out on as they do at Gatwick, they would warrant a 5 star. Distances between gates sometimes are extensive but there are carts floating around for your help too.

After disembarking from my NWA flight, it was so easy to find my way to the tram that would take me to my next terminal. Even though I had a 3 hour stop over, I felt that there was plenty to keep me entertained, especially when my flight to LAX was delayed 45 minutes. The shops were different and had variety - when I stopped in at a convenience store to get a magazine and a Coke, lady at the checkout was personable and keen to converse beyond how much my purchases came to. The gate lounge was clean and seats were confortable. One thing that struck me as particularly odd though was the amount of dogs that were allowed to walk around on a lead with their owners. Never seen that before at an airport!

I have traveled internationally for many years. This year was the first time in the US that we were treated very rudely by Customs at the MSP Airport. They were not at all kind or respectful and treated us as if were trying to be dishonest on our declarations. I have never been so frustrated as I was by them.

I have used Lindbergh terminal for several years and have always been impressed with it's ease of use and the shopping - I usually have a 7 hour layover and find plenty to do during that time. My last trip was less than memorable as I was flying Northwest from Minot ND to Minneapolis and Icelandair from Minneapolis to Glasgow. This time Icelandair had moved to Humphry terminal so I had to transfer from one terminal to the other. My impression is that Lindbergh and Humphry terminals have an ongoing war of some kind and really don't give a damn about their customers. There is no transfer for baggage so I had to drag my bags with me - on the outward journey I had to take a bus from just outside Lindbergh to just outside Humphry (signs and directions were practically non existant). On the return journey I found that after already traveling for 16 hours I had to drag my bags through the entire parking garage to reach the mass transit train, this took me about 20 minutes. I am a person who is not easily scared by anything, but I have never felt so unsafe walking through the parking garage on my own at 7:00 pm - no airport staff or security anywhere in sight, I really wondered where on earth I was going and if I was going in the right direction. Once I got on the train (absolutely exhausted) I found that there were a couple of young men about 20 feet away from me starting a fight! What a wonderful impression this gives to any travellers coming to this country for the first time. Unfortunately I have very few choices of transport between North Dakota and Scotland and will probably have to take the same route again (I usually make two trips a year). Minneapolis needs to have a dedicated means of transport for airline passengers between the two terminals and more security. I would add that I am 64 years old and in reasonable shape, when I finally reached Lindbergh terminal I was absolutely exhausted, frustrated and upset by the whole experience, I still had another 7 hours travel time before I would be home. I am writing letters to everyone I can think of regarding this incident, I would encourage anyone else who has had the same experience to do the same.

Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport seems optimum in the sense that it is large enough to offer passengers multiple shopping and dining venues and yet it still maintains a very clean and modern environment despite its size - something I have to appreciate after having been to more rustic monstrosities such as Chicago O'Hare. It is true that Northwest Airlines dominates the airport and its passengers may have to walk long distances to and from its many dispersed concourses, but this actually seems to translate into an advantage for passengers flying other airlines because most of them seem to have their operations concentrated on one concourse that is quite close to check-in, baggage claim, and the Northstar Crossing dining/shopping. So, if you are traveling say American, Continental, Delta, etc. you may not even realize the immense size of the airport because you are not likely to contend with it. My one complaint about MSP is that there are very few shops and restaurants open during the early hours of the morning, which is an inconvenience for persons such as myself who normally arrive at the terminal quite early for flights departing at 6 or 7 a.m. with international connections and would like to eat or shop before boarding. However, in all fairness I doubt that many airports have much to offer at that hour.

There is a good mix of shops and eating places but most important of all the signeage is clear.We were coming in from Europe and needing to catch another flight connection after clearing customs. I was SO pleased that after we'd done that there was a sign indicating where the luggage needed to go for onward flights. Last year we went through Dulles and we hadn't a clue where the bags had to go and the staff didn't help. One sign at MSP saved an awful lot of upset and resulting delayed baggage that we had at Dulles. Give me MSP anyday.

I use MSP 5-6 times a year and find it "serviceable". Its too big and distances between connections can be long and tiring, even with the escalators and trams. Food tends to be mediocre and expensive and in general I find the whole MSP experience dispiriting. One good thing: the NWA lounges are top- notch or very close to it. Also you can pay a daily fee and get in. Very worthwhile if you have a 5-6 hour (or more) layover. International arrival there is OK, no long delays but customs takes themselves very seriously and seems to operate on the premise if they're not inspecting someone's bags they're not doing their jobs. You can get to the Mall of America pretty easily if you do find yourself with a 6 hour layover. At least you could before I-45 collapsed.

One of the nicest US airports I've visited, which made an enforced further 24 hour stay that much more bearable. Nicely spaced out, nothing is too far away, and even getting to/from Downtown Minneapolis and the MoA is a lot easier than (say) Heathrow. If you fly NW and use hotel drop-off, the self check-in where you're dropped off makes things less hassle. Only minor quibble was that if you have a lot of people queuing up for a non NW flight (in my case UAL) it gets crowded. But then it was the time when my own flight got delayed so it was probably a bad day.

The layout at MSP is excellent. The walk is never too long, and you don't need to leave security to change concourses, unlike SFO, LAX, etc. Also, all the check-in counters are in the same hall which is great if different people in your group are flying different airlines and you want to say goodbye. Short security lines due to multiple multi lane checkpoints. On-site rental car and parking makes travel into town easy.

Just transferred twice through MSP on NW a few weeks ago. I liked the airport a lot, but it fails in comparison to DTW. The Lindbergh Terminal is quite a hike, especially if you are coming in on Northwest Airlink. The G and C terminals are very long, but there is a walkway where you can transfer from one side to the other. I really enjoyed the observation deck at the D concourse, and the view was excellent. The C concourse tram is very helpful, especially for the elderly. Waiting areas tend to be crowded in the C concourse, but D, E, F, and G were just fine. Great restaurants, also. All and all, I was quite happy with MSP. Expect a bit of a walk, and familiarize yourself with the terminal layout in the NW magazine. If you do that, you should be just fine.

At first glance, you may wonder why MSP received the award for best North American Airport. Let's face it, the terminals aren't brand new like DEN or SAN, and nobody likes paying high air fares because of its n torious fortress status. However, there are many factors that make MSP stand out, like the quick and easy immigration/customs area, tram to Concourse C, excellent restaurant choices (try the Itasca Grill), and its close proximity to the downtown area. I think the terminal dedicated to low cost carriers (Humphrey terminal) is a great aspect of MSP - it's cozy and a breeze to get through, and you don't have to wade through the thousands of connecting passengers on NWA to get to your gate. The Lindbergh terminal (main terminal) has a nice, clean shopping area in the middle with an even cleaner food court, but the concourses themselves are dotted with decent restaurants as well. The layout makes sense, and you never have to walk very far unless you're at the very end of a concourse or you forget to take the tram. There's also train service to the Mall of America (currently the biggest mall in the US, great for a long layover) and the downtown area. The airport could use a facelift, as some of the ceilings are a bit low and the baggage area is becoming slightly dilapidated. It would be a blessing if Southwest came here - it would drive down some of the high fares associated with the Northwest monopoly, but I suppose every fortress airport could use some Southwest relief.

I have always liked connecting though MSP. I agree with people when they say that if you're coming in on an RJ or Prop that you had better wear hiking shoes, but the abundance of moving walkways is definately a plus. Anyway, the airport has always been clean and the staff has the friendly "Midwest Hospitality" feel about them. Being from Wisconsin myself, it was mostly overlooked outbound and only noticed on my way back home after missing this while at my destination.

Décor is a very staid; it didn't feel like the most modern of airports. Unlike Mr Kuhlmann, I did not find much trouble navigating from Humphrey to the Hertz pick-up, but I was disappointed at the distance I still had to walk, especially as I had an extraordinary amount of luggage. However, I was impressed with the friendliness of all staff, especially at United.

To answer the question about the trams with no people, they were undergoing testing, and before certification for use, they had to run 30 days without needing matinence. I personally have ridden them since then, and they are without any staff aboard. Also, much less known to travelers here is the Humphrey terminal which has been built in the last five years. This terminal features six gates, none of which are / can be owned by any single airline. Also, the new light-rail system is a plus for travelers who have a layover, because not only does it connect to the mall of america, but the MOA terminal is within walking distance of a new indoor waterpark, once construction has finished, this waterpark will be the largest indoor waterpartk in the US.

Overall I like MSP, yes it is a pain to get to some concourses but it is an older airport. My question is why have the train (light rail) connecting Minneapolis, Fort Snelling, the airport and the Mall of America if I cannot park at any of those locations and ride the train to the airport without getting my car towed? Maybe a few people like to go to the Mall, but I doubt many fly into MSP and ride the train elsewhere without additional transportation. Seems like a huge waste to me.

Minneapolis St Paul Airport  by David Johnson

MSP Airport is truly a modern airport and one of the best to visit. However, this is not an airport that is favorable to those who seek low fares or affordable travel. Northwest strives and vigilently fights to keep the airfares at this airport excessively high. The competition is uneager to fight high fares (even the low fare airlines that serve this airport). Without new airlines (Southwest, or the like), this airport is only going to be affordable to those business travelers. Also, why does the connection train at the airport operates but has nobody riding it? This would make the airport less of a pain to walk through and provide relief to those that have to navigate the long journey to concourse B. The airport has severe problems that need to be corrected sometime in the near future, however the amenities at this airport are some of the best.

Minneapolis St Paul Airport  by Joe Emling

30 August 2004

MSP is generally a great airport as either a destination or a connecting spot. It's too bad that it's a fortress hub for Northwest and flying there costs an arm and a leg. I like the availability of shops and the generally well-lighted interior. There are lots of pleasant distractions for long layovers. And the barber shop is great - if you know where to find it! My one complaint about MSP, however, is the sheer enormity of it, made worse by the lack of speedier ways to get around. The airport needs a functioning tram system to zip around the concourses (apparently, there is a tram that goes from the A-B gates to the D gates, but it has never worked). Connecting from a NW commuter flight in the A concourse to a flight out of the F concourse is nearly impossible without at least 30 minutes of breathless scurrying along moving sidewalks and muscling through flight-bank throngs. This is the one thing that keeps MSP from being a truly world-class airport.

St. Pauls airport gives me a feeling that I'm at a enormous airport. Allhough it's quite easy to navigate, it's clean and friendly staff. For aviation fanatics, there's a nice small "room" where you have a nice overview of the platform, full with Northwest aircrafts. As a KLM platinum card holder we share the lounge with partner Northwest. The lounge was quite crowded compared the size of the lounge. I prefer more spacious lounges with less noise. The service and drinks are ok and there's also a small separated area for smokers, which I did appreciate.

Minneapolis St Paul Airport  by Alan Chick

4 December 2003

I found MSP to be a bright clean airport with good shopping facilities airside. The check in area is also very good with great overhead signage. My only complaint with the airport is that if you are not flying Northwest then the information screens for other airlines are almost non existent making you feel slightly unwanted. The foot of snow which fell while I was in Minneapolis had no adverse effect on the operations.
