| Friends don't let friends use Sea-Tac. After multiple arrivals into and departures from Seattle, all I have to say is, "What a joke!" How, oh how, does the metropolis which gave the world Microsoft, Amazon and Starbucks, and served as the setting for the classy '90s sitcom "Frasier," manage to have an airport that would shame Satan himself? It's almost as bad as LAX. Staff aren't so much rude, as they are "aggressively passive-aggressive" - pushy and aloof, but polite the whole time they're doing it. The passengers indeed can actually seem rather hostile, perhaps because they're crammed like sardines in an old, outdated, small, dingy, filthy airport that always seems to be under construction without any tangible progress in modernization. There is no logical connectivity between the terminals, whether you're relying on signage or the inter-terminal tram. I mean, isn't the purpose of a tram to logically piece the airport together? The floors don't look like they've been cleaned since 1987. The restrooms, unkempt sometimes. Delays in arriving to, and departing from, the gate are common, because this airport has had a dramatic spike in flights without any accompanying increase in people-handling and gate capacities. If you have to visit the Pacific Northwest, fly into Portland, OR or Bellingham, WA in the US, or Victoria, BC or Vancouver, BC in Canada (though Canadian immigration and customs aren't exactly any more pleasant than their American counterparts).
