McCarran Airport, FTW!

You know what would be great? If when you got to the airport and had a little time to kill before your next flight, you could pop open your laptop and instantly get a strong, free wi-fi connection. Even better would be if the first page you see after a ridiculously simple log-in (email address only) is a well-laid-out page listing up-to-date arrivals and departures.

Well that's exactly the experience I just had here at the Southwest gate at McCarran airport in Las Vegas.

Now granted I didn't even try this at SFO -- maybe it was just as painlessly convenient. I haven't flown in years, so this could be pretty standard. But either way, I appreciate it.

Good job, McCarran!
