Will not pay to watch tv on an airplane!

Aug 28, 2018

My only complaint was I couldn’t use the gogoflight app to watch movies. It was annoying that it didn’t work.

Aug 5, 2018

I was surprised there were no outlets/ports to charge electronics, especially for a 5 hour flight.

Jul 9, 2018

Not happy with the seat assignment. You placed us in the last row. Won't use Orbitz in the future. Will go directly to the airlines. Cost me too much to upgrade our seats.

Plan Your Trip from Washington DC to Phoenix

The Best DC Airports

Before you call airlines looking for flights from Washington, DC, you should check with Orbitz.com. The two major airports in DC are Washington Dulles International Airport and Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport. Alaska Airlines, US Airways, and Frontier Airlines handle domestic flights from Ronald Reagan, while Virgin America, ExpressJet Airlines, and Colgan Air operate out of Washington Dulles. Ronald Reagan is only three miles from the downtown area, and Washington Dulles is 26 miles from downtown.

Long-Term Parking Options

The five parking lots at Ronald Reagan offer daily and hourly parking rates, and the airport charges $20 per day for parking in the long-term lots. The economy lot only charges $12 per day, but this lot is open and uncovered. Washington Dulles has two long-term parking lots that charge $17 per day and one economy lot that charges $10 per day. For $30, you can use valet parking.

Public Transportation Choices

The Metrorail and Metrobus make at least one stop at each airport every day. The stops are clearly marked around the city, and you can find maps that help you find the correct line. Taxis are not as low cost as the public transportation options because the drivers charge a pickup fee, baggage fee, fee per mile, and a fee for any time that the driver must wait.

Places to Eat

Both airports offer a range of dining options. Washington Dulles is home to Dulles to Go, Five Guys, Subway, and Wendy's, while Ronald Reagan has Dunkin' Donuts, Euro Cafe, and Jerry's Subs & Pizza. Once you have something to eat, you can browse through the sales at some of the shops surrounding the restaurants. If you want to enjoy your vacation, use Orbitz.com to look for flights from Washington DC.

Phoenix Airport Information

Travelers to the Phoenix-Scottsdale area fly into the Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport. When you purchase tickets on cheap flights to Phoenix via Orbitz.com, you will be able to choose from all of the major domestic and international airlines that service the airport. The airport is located less than six miles east of the downtown area, so it's just a quick trip down Highway 10.

Ground Transportation in Phoenix

The most economical way to get into the city is via the Phoenix Airport Shuttle, which will drop you off by the Washington Metro Light Rail stop. There are three cab companies that can take you to downtown Phoenix or wherever you need to go, and rates are standard across all companies. Expect to pay $5 for the first mile, $2.30 for each additional mile and $23 for each hour you are delayed in traffic. If you use Orbitz.com to purchase your air tickets, consider adding on a rental car for ultimate mobility while you are in the area.

Phoenix Area Weather Information

Phoenix winters are mild, with temperatures in the 40s, 50s and 60s, but you will find that summers there can be brutal. While nights may be as low as the mid-70s, daytime temperatures often exceed 100 degrees Fahrenheit. Pack plenty of light-colored, lightweight clothing, and schedule your outdoor activities for early morning or late afternoon.

What to Do in Phoenix
