George Bush Intercontinental Airport Reviews
Greater Houston, a metro area composed of nine counties, is known for being the fifth-largest metro area in the US. It’s real name is Houston–The Woodlands–Sugar Land, and is home to 2.1 million residents. In this city, you will find George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH).
Being one of the top 10 busiest airports in Northern America, IAH is also known for being one of the fastest growing among the top ten airports in the US. Looking at George Bush Intercontinental Airport reviews will allow us to assess how the passengers truly see the airport.
Apparently, landing on one of the United States’ top ten airports does not guarantee world-class service. Passengers seem to be quite disappointed with IAH, and for good reasons. One commenter said that he was, again, stuck in the passport control queue. The airport has 40 lanes but only 10 were open, he added.
Another passenger urged passengers to avoid the airport at all costs. The passenger claimed to have been stuck in the immigration queue for a whole hour and spent another one in trying to claim his baggage, waiting in line at the customs and TSA check, the last one of which he describes as a “nightmare”. So many passengers seem to be complaining about the TSA check, perhaps it is high time for a long-needed upgrade? We can only hope the management hears the passenger’s rightful protests.
A Look Inside
Let’s step inside the airport terminals. IAH has five terminals: Terminals A, B, C, D and E, all of which are meant to serve passengers. There are four airport lounges in IAH. The United Club Lounge is accessible to United Club Members, but non-members may also enter for a fee of $50. These lounges can be found in all terminals except Terminal D. KLM Crown Lounge, on the other hand, is only accessible to those who carry a Priority Pass. It is located at Terminal D, and is open daily from 6 A.M. to 10 P.M. The Air France Lounge, as with KLM, is only accessible to Priority Pass holders and is open daily starting 12 P.M. through 6 P.M. The fourth lounge is called the USO Lounge, and can only be accessed by military members and their families.
Tech-junkies may also connect to the free Wifi, just find the “Free Airport WIFI” SSID. For those who would like to buy some stuff before boarding or leaving the airport, several duty free and souvenir shops can be found in all terminals.

Urgent Upgrade Needed
The George Bush Intercontinental Airport reviews that can be found on the internet only show how inferior the IAH is, compared to other airports in the world. Also, the fact that it is considered one of the top ten airports in the US makes you wonder how reliable these “Top 10’s” are.
People have high standards, and airport management are expected to at least address these complaints. We hope whoever handles this airport does whatever is necessary to implement new rules and upgrade their system.
