Question in black type - Answer from our Readers in blue type  

#1.  What is your opinion of the main airport at Las Vegas, McCarran?  Is the airport easy to use, located correctly, to big, to small, baggage claim easy to find, baggage easy to find or what?   Tell us your experiences and opinions of the airport. 

*  If it is over 100 degrees, it can be a long wait to take off. We waited for 3 hours "in the plane" waiting for clearance to take off. There is only one runway - we were told - that can handle jets in the thin air of the heat. They should have another runway to handle things in the heat. Otherwise a nice airport.  Jim Longbons

*  The baggage claim is slow. The car rental facilities are excellent. It is very easy to get caught in a wrong lane and make one or two extra trips around the terminal when taking someone to the terminal (picking them up). The merry-go-round entrance and exit at the parking garage can be a once in a life time thrill (?). Overall it is a good airport and will never get over its growing pains. HBHWANGO

*  Haven't had a bad experience at the airport. I take into consideration the fact that it's going to be crowded and I'll have to wait for luggage etc. Have been in better airports.  Karen V Bujnoski

*  We found that the passenger elevators leading from the baggage pose a severe area of congestion and unnecessary delay. You can easily wait up to 20 minutes or more just attempting get onto an elevator. All other facilities and traffic patterns we found are very well laid out, (once you can get an elevator that is.)  paladin

*  My wife and I come into Las Vegas several times a year and always take our luggage carry on so we don't have to wait at the carousels for luggage. It makes a big difference to just get off aircraft and get to taxi boarding area. Yes it's big but so is the city it serves. I think it it a very well designed terminal overall.  Donald L. Harrison

*  I found my way around pretty easy, loved the shops they have there, like the convenience of having the gym, but the elevator wait was hard on your nerves!!!!    Cynthia Scott

*  I guess I must be against growth, it seems the old airport was so much easier to get around and less crowded.  Since Las Vegas has grown so much over the years I guess it makes sense that I should wait 45 minutes for my bags, but it does not mean I have to like it.  Mel  LV.
