Default Airport Gate Pass - Get access to the Airport Concourse...

Below instruction will show you how to get access to the airport concourses to meet your Sailor when the arrive or depart. You usually have to go to the ticket counter to get the passes. Remember, most counter agents have know idea about this. If they say they can give you gate passes, then show them this message, and ask for their supervisor. Again, don't think you have the right to go to the gate, it's just a priviledge. They can always tell you no due to real world events. (hey it's security, if they don't want you on the concourse they are just looking out for everyones safety).

This is one of those benefits that our military members get that a normal civilian doesn't.

Most airports are very nice about this too! So dont be afraid to ask...I have been able to meet my boys flights every time at the gate at the Reno airport, and go to the gate to wait with them as well. They didnt have to fly in uniform either!

We've only had to deal with this once.....the day of PIR when we were meeting Michael out at O'Hare shortly after PIR. We had no problems whatsoever in getting through with him and waiting at the gate area.

Really Delores?!?! That's crazy, I thought they were supposed to let military families go through?!

I know some airports are more strict than others.. LAX only let Kadie and I go through. (this was long before Molly). We had parents with us, and they weren't allowed through, but because Kadie and I were his dependents (and I could show military ID), we got to go through with him. (This was back in May of 06).

Otherwise, we've dealt with Lindberg Field down here, and have never had an issue with getting to the gate with or for him.

No problems in KC or in St. Louis for us, either.

ANA at LAX wouldn't give me a pass today. It was a rather pissed off/emotional good bye. =(

So sorry Kim..that really sucks! It was probably due to that guy that tried to blow up a plane on Christmas day! They have raised the security due to it...

They don't ever let anyone passed I guess. But they threw out a bunch of excuses to try and keep my happy. I burst into tears and the guy couldn't even look me in the eye.
