If you arrive in Concourse B and need to go to Concourse D for a connecting flight, do you need to go through Security again? BWI is not the final destination. Connecting flight is domestic not international.
B and D are not connected inside security. So you will have to go through security to access concourse D.
Every time I fly into BEI the wifi doesn't work, ever. My Mac finds BWI Free wifi or Boingo hotspot and does connect to a access point, but there's no internet. What gives? I look around and everyone is on their mobile phones using their phone data because even if they fire up their laptop they still can't connect. Sad.
My first international flight out of the country and my experience was horrible. Upon my 2 1/2 early arrival to the airport, I needed help in getting to where I needed to be, I had to different employees take me to Delta Airlines and Southwest to stand in the line's and find out that is where I was not to be and they could not help me find Swift Airlines. By the time I arrived at the correct dept to check in, no one was there to check me in, the employee told me someone would be back, 20 minutes later no one came, so I began asking everyone for help, I was finally taken up to the point of being taken on the plane when I told them no one checked me in and I don't have my ticket's. I was then told to come back next Friday when the next international flight was to leave, the joke's were rude and they could cleary see I was upset over this mess up. So I missed the flight had to purchase new ticket's for a vacation that was paid for already. Not sure I would ever again rely on help from their employee's to het me to where I needed to be. Thank for ruining my first out of the country vacation BWI!!!!!!
As a general rule, you should arrive 4 hours early for international flights. I think airlines these days tell you 3, but 4 is better. Even as an experienced flyer, I would be very nervous about missing my flight if I arrived 2.5 hrs before it left.
Been in line since 3:30am just to check our newborn. 4.25 the 2 southwest ticket people finally came out from their coffee time and are slowly about to begin. Getting here any earlier would not have helped as there has not been anyone here working until this point l.(and I wouldn't really call it working)
