I had used Atlanta airport for a while now, but a friend wanted to use Birmingham. I was out of touch with where to go and such but arrived at 4:10 in the morning. I was told to move my car, and I asked where to park. A courteous police officer showed me exactly where to go and then I lost my way getting back to the terminal. I walked around in the early morning and followed a fellow flyer to the correct location, but it was safe and carefully watched for early passengers and plenty of people are willing to help you. It is a good airport.
