PHL is a nightmare airport

Some years back, the B and C baggage claims were completely redone to be state of the art. Despite that, this is the only airport where your flight may listed on the monitor for one baggage carousel (where you then wait patiently). Meanwhile the bags from your flight have all quietly emerged in a different carousel and have been for 30 minutes. No announcements made regarding the switch either. This has happened to me at least 1.8 million times and counting.

Right now it seems every airport on the east coast is a nightmare

@D1 that also happens to me T5 in LHR regularly, as recently as Saturday. However I never check bags domestically to avoid bag claim completely - when you do 125 segments a year that saves a lot of time. However, PHL does have above average food options compared to many airports I frequent.

Especially the F (aka FU) terminal

PHL is NBD.

Hi Atlanta fishes, I’m moving to Atlanta in coming months and looking for your advice & recommendations for neighborhood and apartment search prior to in-person visit soon. Background & factors: - Male / single / age 30 (I like city life and going out yet prefer relatively calm place during weekdays than too much exposure to crowd & street noise) – heard ATL midtown isn’t too loud anyways - For monthly rent (1BD or studio), I would prefer $1800~$2000 range but can afford up to ~$2100+ (cont’d)
