I'm travelling through MKE tomorrow on Midwest (first time in MKE and first on Midwest)...so i'll be in terminal D. Few questions though...
1. Is it easy to spot aircraft from MKE's terminal D? Do they have many windows, or is it similar to ATL (few windows, except on the ends)? Can you see aircraft pretty well, or are they pretty distant (aside from those at the gates)?
2. Does anyone know if the 'Best Care Cuisine' is any good? It's offered on my flight and i'm debating whether to try it...its $10 however. I'd like to know ahead of time if its worth the money or should I just eat at the airport.
Also, as i'm sure we all know, security is much higher since the Glasgow attacks and such, and generally, I like to take my binoculars in my carry on (so I can easily spot aircraft while at the airport). They're 10x binoc's so I can see quite far and up close (fun for spotting). I have a 5 hour layover, so i'd like to take my binocs and watch planes. I'm wondering if its even worth it, because if you can see the planes well enough in MKE, I wont even bother (thereby avoiding a carry on - I will put it all in 1 checked bag, which is a lot easier).
I'm also worried about getting reported by tons of people in that 5 hour span for looking 'slightly suspicious', especially now (versus last month for example). The last thing I want to deal with is getting interrogated for using binoculars at the airport. I'm debating whether to take them or not...I heard on the news they're telling people to report the slightest bit of suspicious activity, and i'm sure looking at planes with binoculars by the airport window in terminal D is considered suspicious by most people
I'm mainly concerned about the viewing capabilities in MKE however...if its easy to see planes, even landing, and they're fairly close, then i'll check my Binoculars (and not have a carry on - which'll be nice). If its hard to see planes, they're distant, then I likely will (assuming MKE has plenty of windows/good viewing capabilities).
If anyone could help or answer, that'd be great - thanks!
