Customer Reviews:-

Herbert Klein (United States) 12th October 2016

I flew from SEA to Paris. Busy airport but, generally clean and processing through security and airline check in. Good food options and a good choice of restaurants. The 2 separate rail loops is a bit confusing. Airport has good natural light and views.

Angela Rawson (Hong Kong) 30th August 2016

Arrival was a bit confusing with the train going to different points and finding the courtesy phone to call the hotel was not that easy but a very helpful employee sent me in the right direction. Baggage arrived promptly. I Was pleasantly surprised with fast and efficient security screening on departure. Many people manning security checkpoints, so it was a very swift process with polite and courteous employees. Had a good meal and found a reasonable variety of restaurants. Other shops were a bit repetitive but fine. Clean bathrooms, good WiFi and clean departure gate areas.

Karl Moosbrugger:

Arrived at SEA on an intercontinental flight and had a domestic connection next morning. I liked the airport. Upon arrival, immigration was quick no queues (just 4 people in front of me) so I was through in 5 minutes. Baggage arrived a few minutes later and overall it took just 20 minutes from leaving the plane until I was out of the airport. I have a similar positive experience next morning too. There is friendly staff at check-in. Along with that, the fewer queues and adequate food facilities are there in the waiting area.
