The workers at IHOP were great. The ABM lady at the bathrooms greeted everyone and cleaned well. There are no comfortable sitting areas outside and past the checkpoints. It needs a more welcoming and comfortable sitting areas beside the hard cemented sitting area. The carpeted areas were not accessible on level.
Frontier was the most accessible and least busiest terminal.

As everyone has repeated they are rude, and give unnecessarily contradictory and complicated instructions. For example, at the check in 3/4 at 6:50 am I was told to walk forward and simultaneously push my items through on a backed up overflowing conveyor belt. I asked the female agent to clarify which she wants me to do she tells me to push my items forward. How on an overflowing conveyor belt as you are also yelling at me to go through the metal detector? Her response was a condescending
“make it make sense” as if the passengers were too stupid to understand. Atlanta and Miami are always the worse with Atlanta far exceeding Miami. I know it won’t get better because this is how it’s been. I wish TSA would improve its hiring and training.

The most miserable airport in the US. The only thing it has going for it is the availability of alcohol. It is as if no one who manages this airport has aver flown. It is ALWAYS TOO HOT. I hope whomever makes the temperature decisions spends eternity in a room about 15-20 degrees to hot before his/her interview to get into wherever he/she is going so that he/she arrives sweaty, stinky and miserable
