    It would be nice if they'd add a bathroom for those getting off the plane and going to baggage claim. There aren't currently any facilities until you clear a secured area.

    On a positive note, it's the only Brazilian airport connected to a metro system (via van transfer and a passarela) that goes directly into downtown. You might argue the same for GRU, but that's a 30-minute bus ride to the metro. Plans to expand Trensurb (or connect it with a light rail) have been on paper for years.
