U might want to watch out for double images too. As mentioned, try to get AS CLOSE AS POSSIBLE, which means u might even have to place your lens directly on the glass...... U wont notice the double images until its sometimes too late.

Also, try to ensure you are as close to 90deg (perpendicular) to the window as possible - this helps to cut down on both reflections, and the nasty effect of the glass to make the shots look "hazy".
You will almost certainly have to correct for a bad colour-shift when you get home. Many terminal windows look clear to the naked eye, but when really they are often VERY tinted. At Stansted for example, it is always necessary to remove the heavy green tint (note the green windows in the opposite pier):

It may sound crazy but what i have done on more than one occasion is to cup my hand over the top of the lens kind of extending the lens hood and keep it there ( with the lens right up against the glass ).... it does work as the reflections are well and truly cut out , examples below..

I have held up dark material (paper, fabric, or whatever) to block reflections as my son takes photos (at an angle) through terminal windows. I've thought he should keep something in the camera bag for such purposes, as it seems to work quite well. I'd pick something very dark, non-translucent, and non-reflective.
