Each Friday, we’re featuring a reader-submitted tip as our Travel Tip of the Day. This week’s tip comes from reader Stephen T., who says:

“Please warn your readers about late night connections in Boston’s Logan Airport. On a recent return flight from Japan, I landed at Logan Airport in Boston at 1 am and had a connection at 5 am. As soon as we landed I headed to my next gate but was stopped by an airport worker and told I had to leave the airport! Evidently, Logan closes all the secure areas and doesn’t reopen until TSA reopens around 3:30-4:30 am. I ended up in baggage claim, where one of the United people directed me to a hallway near TSA to wait with the other airport ‘refugees.’

I couldn’t believe we were being treated like this and after having already traveled a long way, I was really annoyed.”

Good to know if you’re ever connecting in Boston. Thanks, Stephen!

    LaGuardia does the same type of herding after the last flight takes off. Our afternoon flight was cancelled due to weather, so we were on standby for the 6 am flight. We were herded like cattle by bus to an unsecured terminal. We couldn’t even find a comfortable chair, much less a place to put our heads. We ended up sitting in straight metal chairs until we caught our 5:00 am shuttle back to the Delta terminal. Crazy!

    From reader Phyl B.: “I have encountered this problem in a lot of BIG CITY airports not just small ones. JFK as an example. I had to sit in a telephone booth for 4 hours awaiting the ‘re-opening’ of the ‘real side’ of the airport. This is a wee hour of the morning problem at many airports, where is the suggestion box when you need it!!”
