Terminal B is not where the planes dock, it is in the building where passengers are brought to or taken from. Likewise Terminal A is not where the planes dock, it too is in the building where passengers walk to or from.
We parked in the long-term parking and needed to drive back to baggage claim. There are NO directions on how to do this, no map and even the police could not give directions. We wasted 45 minutes and great frustration. Better signage is needed and better maps.
My husband used to wait for me at the curb, after arriving from Chicago on United. Can we still use curbs side pick up and has United moved to Term A?
No longer - but he has 2 choices: either use the parking garages and meet you the baggage claim area; OR use the free Cell Phone Lot (for up to 3 hours) located off Crossfield & Lindbergh Drive--stay with your car until you collected luggage and call him to be picked up at the curb.
The previous comment is totally wrong, maybe thinking of STL? At SMF you can do curbside pickup.
Picking up 12 yr old grand daughter S.W. How can I meet her at the gate. Or is there a better alternative?
