I arrive at terminal 2 two hours before my traveling companion arrives in terminal 1. She has never been out of the US and concerned how I can get to terminal 1 to help her navigate to get luggage and transport to our hotel. Where can we meet?
You can just meet here are terminal 1 arrivals following the steps here to transfer between terminals:
Arrivée terminal 2E – After the automatic doors, out of the luggage delivery room, turn left, go straight on. At the end of the terminal, take the escalator up.
