| I fly weekly for work, and Gerald R. Ford Int'l Airport in Grand Rapids is one of my two home-base airports. It's served by American, Delta, United, Southwest and Allegiant, and has non-stop flights to twenty-something destinations. I primarily fly American, and mostly take flights that connect through Chicago O'Hare or Dallas/Fort Worth. GRR is a larger regional airport, with two concourses of 8 gates each, but not a large airport by any means. I can park in the garage, walk in, clear security (TSA Pre-Check) and walk to my gate within 15 minutes of driving into the garage. I love that kind of convenience. Employees are friendly and helpful pretty much across the board -- at the airline counters, security and at the gates. GRR recently finished a fairly large renovation, in late 2017. They now have one central security checkpoint, and a central area with new shopping and dining, including a local brewpub, Starbucks and a Michigan-themed souvenir shop, There are also new lounge areas, children's play area and a business center, not to mention new, large restrooms. In general, GRR operates on time, which is key for me. Most delays I've experienced have come from aircraft delayed at their originating airport - mostly O'Hare. I'm basically comfortable relying on this airport for my weekly business travel needs.
