Last Friday I was scheduled to fly home again out of the G14/15 gates. This time I had a morning departure and arrived around 7 a.m. for my flight. I walked into the gate area and had to do a double take. There was a new restaurant open. I even asked the server if they had just opened. She said "Yes, on Monday."
I was totally impressed with the restaurant. Talk about high tech travel! At each seat was an iPad where you ordered your food, a card reader to swipe your credit card to pay for it and an outlet to charge other electronics if needed. While waiting for your food to arrive, you could go online and check email, catch up on news or do a little more damage to your credit card. You could even put in your flight info and it would show you the current status on the bottom of the screen. I'm sure as your departure time gets close, a reminder would pop up and tell you to scoot! You know, just in case you got wrapped up in your emails so you don't miss your flight!!

To top this all off, the food wasn't bad either. I had the egg & bacon croissant. It even came with a side of home fries.
I look forward to my next flight home out of MSP. Hope it departs from the G14/15 gates again!
