If I have a layover in terminal A, will I be able to get food from a shop in terminal B or C, or do I need a ticket for a flight there to get past security?
Terminal A isn't connected to anything else inside security. In fact even in Terminal B and C, different concourses aren't connected inside security.
Hi; does anyone know if the chapel at DCA gives out ashes throughout the day?
It is an interfaith chapel, not a Catholic or Orthodox church, so no, they do not.
Don't ever eat here, the food is terrible, tthe vegetable "panini" is two pieces of toast with lots of raw onion, tomato, squash and peppers, they don't add cheese or mayo and don't even put it on the panini press, no flavor to it a 5 yr old can put that together and they charge $13, what a joke! Will never be back to Cibo.
Is there any place to get a massage at DCA?
Terminal b needs a decent coffee bar...seriously.
Don't allow the fancy tablecloths and wine selections fool you, the food here is uniformly horrible -- even by airport food standards.
Fabulously Fresh in Terminal A: The only vegetarian option offered in Terminal A is a wrap at this place and it is always soggy and falls apart upon opening the box. Does anyone there actually eat what they sell? Rhetorical question, obviously, because if they did, they would know that they are failing to offer customers healthy food that is also edible in the conditions of an airport. Super frustrating!!!

The Euro Cafe in the middle is no better. They place all the food under the register so anyone that wants to buy it has to wait until someone is pushing them to pay -- no time to see options and select anything before getting to the register. Very few vegetarian options, and the entire process just to buy something is almost not worth bothering.

If it weren't for my frequent, distant trips, I would never buy anything. Both these businesses are examples of poorly run operations, offering customers less than acceptable service, and products as inidicia of decision makers who don't understand customers even remotely.

I seriously HATE vendors in Terminal A at DCA, and the only positive thing I can say is that I'm glad there is something, even if completely frustrating time after time after time.....
Every few months I come back to Jet Rock Bar & Grill near gate 30, because it is the only restaurant with service in that part of the airport. They never disappoint. If you like apathetic waitresses, agonizingly slow service and dry food, you will Love this place.
It is 4:00 pm. Whatever Mac trade is, its doors are locked.
The MAC TRADE: how can I get my receipt for buying able planet linx audio head phones? purchased 2/1/2013.
