    Aruba Airport Information needed

    What type of eateries are located in the Airport.

    (i am guessing we will not be allowed to take food through the check in areas)

    +We will have to be at the airport around noon for a 3pm flight.. and will not get home until after 1am-- VERY long day.

    We have a layover in Atlanta. (anyone know what terminal will land at?

    You can carry food through check in, but anything with meat or vegetables can't go through US customs.
    In the duty free area:
    Sbarro
    Sushi joint

    At Gates:
    sandwich shop by gate 7 (also have ice cream)
    Nathans hot dogs
    Kiosk with sandwiches and drinks
    Sbarro
    Bar, not sure if they have food though

    I'm sure I'm missing one or two

    I always stop at a bakery before getting to the airport and pick up some pastry and sandwiches to take on the plane. just put them in my carry on and go. I have never been asked what they were and had anyone look at them. . . . . Never had a problem at either security point. . . .

    We usually take Delta thru Atlanta and have about a 2 hour layover in Atlanta on the way home. Plenty of places to eat dinner there. We usually arrive on concourse T or A and leave from A or B. Easy to get from one to the other and still have plenty of time for dinner depending on how long your layover is.

    If addition to the places Chadd mentioned about at the Aruba Airport, the two bars at the airport near the gates also have food - hot dogs, hot panini sandwiches, and various chips.

    While there are plenty of great choices within the airport facility, they are a tad on the costly side. I normally take some bagels and declare them and they have not stopped one single bagel yet.

    Atlanta same thing. Amy nailed it. all of that said, it is a great opportunity to start a diet.

    be well
