Oh NYC airports are also horrific. LGA is very close to the city though and the Air Train from JFK is quite good.

My in laws live right by La Guardia so I'm usually there a day before I have to travel.

And I know a TSA agent at JFK so I get to skip lines.

TSA Pre + Clear combo is elite.

If you have TSA pre, lines are never really an issue. Only time I’ve waited more than like 10 mins is in New Orleans because MSY is a clown show.

Philly was alright just because it was easy to jump on the train.

I actually really like Denver because it's out in the middle of nowhere. No real public transportation but getting in/out is a breeze.

Charlotte has a hilarious airport for somewhat of a large/growing area.

Detroit isn't bad but I've only flown out of the old terminal that's less populated, but it's relatively easy to get to.

Nashville is located conveniently and for it being a decent size is fairly well organized for driving.

TSA pre is always a 5 minute or less endeavor at Love Field, but at DFW, it took us longer to go through TSA (22 minutes) than regular security (18 minutes) last Friday because DFW is a garbage airport. Love Field is the best, on the other hand.

I really don't have a need for Clear and doesn't matter because it isn't available here. TSA Pre, even with most people having it now, has taken me no more than 15 minutes in the worst case scenario.

Or smash the trunk window or something. That's just idiotic on their part.

But having that said, there have been a lot of reports of Tesla's losing control and the driver claiming the car drove itself. On the surface Tesla says they're to blame, but it can't be a coincidence that it's happening to so many people.

There was a class action lawsuit against Tesla about this but they kept it quiet. Eventually they're going to get burnt by this.

I work with a lot of ppl in the automotive industry. Tesla is the only car company on earth that doesn't adhere to Automotive SPICE. It's a best practice for software development in cars. Most people who work in automotive don't have a lot of nice things to say about Tesla.

Tesla cuts ALOT of corners with their quality. It's gonna catch up to them one day. Great cars, but they're not a mature car company and they're very irresponsible.

I sold my X and got a Maserati Levante. The Maserati is significantly better. The X is still probably my second favorite SUV out there, but the Maserati is just so fun to drive.

Yeah, just got back from New Orleans.

Can confirm MSY is a joke. I've never been to an airport where you have a security checkpoint for every terminal. There is like 1 lounge in the entire airport, a Delta lounge that doesn't sell day passes, so basically you're fucked unless you're flying Delta.

However there was barely anyone in the airport when we got there, so going through security 3 times and walking around trying to find a lounge only took 30 mins total.

how early are you guys getting to the airport that you go to the lounges? I think I get through security like 20 minutes before boarding, if that.

Agreed with Brent here, my lounge access is only for layovers.

Bruh. Rav4. When my second car falls apart, I'm absolutely replacing it with a Rav4. Those cars are fucking beautiful.

Ohhh I forgot Kansas City airport. If you want shitty set up, they have separate security lines for like every 5-7 gates, and each little cluster has 1 bar/restaurant only accessible for those gates and then other bars/food outside of security. It's the most idiotic setup.

I only go to them if my flight is delayed, I'm waiting for someone, or before international flights and I want to get boozed up.

Don't get a Toyota unless you enjoy road noise.

Really? I've driven Toyotas before and I absolutely love them. My dad had a 4Runner and 2 Camrys. Lots of uncles had toyotas.

I never really paid attention to the road noise though. You're a Honda guy?
