Jeremy Asarisi Poor airport overall. ZERO covered parking unlike almost all other airports out there, which resulted in myself and my luggage getting drenched. This, in turn, set off their new X-ray machine, which is designed to hold up security even more. Flight prices and options are horrible. Location is horrible and not easily accessible from any major interstate or highway. I fly out of Pensacola, which is much better, has covered parking, lower fares, and has recently expanded their security lanes due to increased volume. Mobile spent their renovation money on new floors and flower beds. They just don't get it. I only fly MOB as a last option.
