Meeting Spot for Convention Ride Share
Does anyone know the Detroit Airport McNamara and Smith Terminals well enough to suggest a meeting place where OLS'ers could meet to share ride to the hotel? Is the baggage claim area the same place for all airlines in each terminal? Is there an information stand or similiar spot in the area where we could wait and meet up with other sweepers wanting to share a cab?

Thanks much.
Carol

In the Smith Terminal, there's only one baggage claim and all the airlines have their stuff on there. If you want to hold up a sign or something at the end of baggage claim, before you go out the door, that might be a good idea.

As for McNamara Terminal, they've got like 6 or 8 different carosels. There is an escalator that everyone has to go down to get to baggage claim. There are sliding glass doors at the bottom of the escalator so that might be the best place to wait.

See ya' in a few days!

Carol,
Drop me a line as I'm looking for cab partners to hook up with on June 7 between 5:30 am and 10:30 'ish. Will be arriving McNammara via Northwest at 5:19 am and definitely willing to wait.


See ya,
Lori G.
