You don't have to be a VIP to feel like one at Mobile Regional Airport. Service Gulf Coast jet setters since the 1930s, the airport treats its everyday passengers to modern amenities that many airports reserve only for frequent flyers or anyone bearing a passing resemblance to Sir Richard Branson. No matter whether they're flying US Airways, United, Delta, or American Airlines, passengers can relax into comfy rocking chairs to surf the web with free Wi-Fi. A customer service center provides local phone calls for passengers who need to call a loved one or coordinate ground transportation, and they'll even provide padded envelopes for customers who need to ship home any small items that security deems unfit for travel on the plane. Those looking for extra amenities can sign up for the airports Executive Club for an entire year, or even just for the day, with a $10 day pass yielding additional time-whittling attractions including TV, magazines, newspapers, and free snacks and beverages.
Nestled in the heart of historic midtown Mobile, Ashland Midtown Pub catches the eyes of passersby with its pleasant open-air patio before ensnaring them with the irresistible wafting aromas of cheesy breadsticks, roasted garlic, and freshly baked pizzas and calzones.

As they sup on meals of upscale pizzeria cuisine, patrons dance to the tunes of live musicians or enjoy the interior's fresh, clean air thanks to the pub's no-smoking and no-rudimentary-steam-engine policies.
