cellphone lot

When you are picking up guests
you are lucky if they are arriving at TPA



Tampa Airport does it right



very helpful jumbotron



up-to-date arrival status



clean restrooms and vending machines
{confession: I did buy a candy bar}



wi-fi for your surfing pleasure



patiently waiting for son #1 and his fiance

Ha Ha Ha! For a minute I thought that was Tom.

Cellphone Lots, what a great idea.
Some schools should have them.

You are right, that is the way to go. I won't pick up anyone alone at LAX, you have to keep driving around so much and the traffic is terrible. Love that your honey found time to doze!

Whoa, so you just wait in the lot until the plane arrives? Do you still go in to get them, or do you just drive up to the curb? Good timing with the first photo and the landing plane!

That is great. All airports should have that but I guess only in the warm states like ours and yours. If it was snowy it may not be so fun to sit in the lot waiting. Love the w-fi.

Well I'm impressed. Houston's Bush Intercontinental Airport has great signage, and a great waiting area, I've never heard of a cell-phone area. That's pretty nifty.

Lord willing, we plan to come back through Tampa and see a Rays game before this little tour is over with.

What a wonderful idea! Hopefully more airports will join in and build these at ALL of the airports! Awesome!

Just a little something from Judy said...

What a nice compliment for an airport! I am sure they would feel honored to know you shared this post. Hope you had a good time with your children.

I like that Jumbotron! Up here you really have to hunt to find the arrivals and departures screens - the idea of free wi-fi in the parking lot is just tooooo good!
