This airport is filthy from the bathrooms to the seating areas.

No open restaurants for their customers. Sad state of affairs…..

Complete lack of dining options in the morning. Only a single Panera bread is open and every other restaurant is a bar that doesn’t open until later in the day. Half the restaurants are temporarily closed AND one of the “restaurants” doesn’t even serve food, just drinks. This is seriously awful food wise.
