I wonder what people think are the best airports in the U.S. My personal favorites are SFO, LAS, and MSP. Your thoughts.


Did you ever read on your birth certificate that life is fair? Thats cause its not there.

Well'm sure this will get moved,but my faves are (as a pax):
LAS (D-Terminal) once you get past security.

SNA,just the best in So-Cal (love the shared gates).

LIH,love the open-ness (hey,it's Hawaii!)

ROC,yes I'm partial,but,it's nice!

DEN is nice,too.

Well, I guarantee I'm the only one who thinks this way. My favorite airport in the U.S. is SLC, closely followed by ATL.


Good goes around!

IAH is great......lots of runways and few delays until the weather goes to hell like at most airports. So I am partial but ya know what, look at the numbers of on time airports and airlines that sever them.

Personally, here are some of my favourites:

MCO - very airy, easy to get around in, easy in and out. Only negatives are the lines at security can be very long.
LAS Terminal D - very spacious, was clean, free wi-fi a big plus.
DTW - Best hub - nice and new, the train is real fast, and now that C is redone, it's real nice. Only complaint is no train between A and B/C.

Just for the record, here are some of my least favourites:
STL - wasn't really impressed with the AA hub operation area (concourses, etc.). Other AA hubs I've been to (ORD, JFK, DFW) are in much better shape in my opinion.
PHL - the one airport I avoid. A-West is beautiful, the other US Airways gates are a dump. Between that and the delays I always get going through there, I've given up on that airport, and if I take US Airways, I go through CLT or I choose another airline.
LAX T6/7/8 - I wasn't too impressed with the UA hub operation there...not a whole lot of food operations around 10 p.m., concourses were pretty run down.

Even though I haven't been to that many U.S. airports, I have to say that BWI is one of the best.

GRR!

RSW

EWR

All great airports. EWR is only on there cause it is home for me.


ORD is good to, save for the terrible delays.

I despise JFK though.

Oh, my friend, HNL is a dump! Short of the open walkways, there isn't much to write home about. The retail and dining options are fair at best, and if you happen to fly in or out of the Diamond Head Concouse, bring your best 70s retro garb as it's in dire need of a 21st century rehab.

Concur. The car rental facility on the roof of the parking garage kicks ass, too.

Add SFO to my list of great US airports, especially if it's with UA; the food court there is one of the best around.
