Philadelphia is pretty bad, as is Charles-De-Gaulle and Heathrow. Heathrow just feels like a permanent building site whenever I'm there (which thankfully, isn't very often.).

I am with you PGNCS............JFK. As loyal as I try to be towards DL, I will avoid JFK and opt for other hub connections or other airlines to avoid any JFK service. A shame for an airport to have such a poor reputation considering the history and magnitude of operations that was IDL/JFK. It should be a premier facility to welcome travelers to and from the USA.

But is that because you are flying DL? Their facilities are quite old. Is the experience better in other, newer terminals?

It really depends on which terminal you are. T1, T4, T5 and T8 are the nicer ones. IMO, T1, T5 and T8 are the best ones. T4 is showings its age but its still decent. T7 is way too small. On the other hand, DL's terminal T2/T3 is a piece of garbage.

CDG certainly isn't my favourite airport in Europe (ZRH/MUC/AMS are best in my opinion), but I have connected several times at CDG without any problems. It also depends where you're connecting to/from. When I used AF a few months ago GVA-CDG-YYZ and back, the connections in both directions were in the same terminal (2F) so it was very quick.

If you're departing or arriving CDG, rather than connecting, it is also quite convenient as walking distances between the street level where taxis/buses depart/arrive and check-in, security, and gates on departure (or from bagggae claim on arrival) are much shorter than at many airports.

LHR--You can add all the shops and all the neat lighting to T3, but that doesn't change the fact that its undersized and incredibly cramped. My longest security wait occurred at T3 connections. Staff were great, but like the lighting and shops, couldn't do anything to actually increase capacity of the terminal. Ceilings are also rather low and claustrophobic. Newer section that is A380-capable is okay. T5 involves a lot of walking, but the limited parts I've seen are nice. I haven't been in T1 in a relevant timeframe. The secure side of T3 needs an overhaul.

FRA--Not filthy or claustrophobic, but I've found it confusing. Poor signage can be a bit difficult to see in the best of circumstances, and some connections involve a seemingly absurd amount of walking as you try to decipher where on earth the signs are leading you. Levels seem to change constantly with only a narrow staircase or abrupt elevator to lead you. For me, connecting @ FRA isn't very intuitive. Friendly staff is ultimately a great help but otherwise I would be lost. A shame, because I like LH.

LAX--connecting from terminal to terminal. T4 is very nice, but it would be great to have to not carry bags from say, TBIT to any other terminal or to have a secure means of going from one terminal to another. I realize LAX is not exclusive in this, but I haven't had to connect elsewhere lately where its like this(ie, JFK where most of my travel has been in one terminal).

Ignore my name, however I hardly would call LAX "worst" airport by any margin.

As designed, its really one of the most convenient major US airports to get in and out off. From the curb to gate, or gate to curb in a matter of minutes.
It also consistently ranks for one of the best ontime performance rankings of all major US airports.

I think you may have missed my point: regardless of the terminal (I think I have been through them all as a crewmember or passenger at one time or another), the entire operation at JFK is what makes it so relentlessly awful. I do generally agree with your points though, and I certainly will be pleased to see T2/3 razed to the ground and something (anything) new there.

I have never connected there but I flown into and out of it 4 times and it was a mess every time, lost luggage (in the airport not by the airline), old looking, food options are poor, huge mess in security. Only european airport I do not like.

By far the worst airport I have been to is AMM. You must wait outside (in my case, the baking 110 degree heat) until approximately 2 hours before departure. If your flight is delayed (as mine was, for 16 hours) you cannot get inside to talk to anyone - you are told to find your own way to the transit hotel (about a mile or two away from the terminals) and wait there to be "found" when its time to go back to the terminal. The transit hotel makes a sleazy motel next to the strip club on the outskirts of town look nice, but if you refuse to stay there, you run the risk of missing your flight out of the country! Once you finally are let in to the AMM terminal, you go through an endless maze of narrow hallways and security checks to get to a seating area that has nothing more than hard plastic seats (hardly enough for a full A340, mind you, as many of us had to sit on the floor) - I didn't even see bathrooms or drinking fountains, let alone shops and restaurants. Jordan is a wonderful country with great people and tons of amazing things to do, but their international airport makes Heathrow or LaGuardia seem like a godsend.

NAS was almost as bad (a similar maze of grungy hallways and endless security checks, and then completely barren departure concourses with NOTHING in them after leaving the central waiting area) but was a lot friendlier and the large, open central area did have many concessions available.

LGB is awful because its post-security departure areas are little more than cheap trailers with no food or entertainment options available. There isn't even enough seating in them! Getting delayed out of there is terrible. HPN is bad for the exact same reasons.

MCI is great as an O&D passenger, but if you are connecting and want to stay inside security, there is absolutely nothing to do but sit and wait.

I completely disagree. JFK certainly WAS an awful airport, with a hodgepodge of cramped outdated terminals, until the new T1 opened in 1998. The advent of T1 then led other tenants to tear down and rebuild such that 4 of the 7 terminals currently in use today are excellent. The two catchall international terminals (T1 and T4) are among the nicest dedicated international facilities anywhere in the country. The vast majority of foreign airlines use these terminals, giving incoming foreign visitors an excellent first taste of our country. JetBlue and American Airlines have also invested huge sums of money in their own terminals, giving domestic travelers equally impressive (or even better) experiences when flying to, from, or through JFK. Delta's pax have to endure the awful T2/T3 complex for now, but in a few years, they too will enjoy a brand new terminal!



Quoting 727LOVER (Reply 6):

But is that because you are flying DL? Their facilities are quite old. Is the experience better in other, newer terminals?

Night and day. DL's terminal is absolutely awful, while the other terminals (except T7) are clean, spacious, and extremely pleasant to use.

Have you used AA's new North Terminal (Concourse D)? Other than the cramped Eagle departures/arrivals area (which is only temporary) the place is excellent. Once AA is out of E for good, connecting through MIA will be a breeze.

Quoting PGNCS (Reply 8):
Again, agreed. MIA is my least favorite airport in the southern US hands down.

Actually I'd say MIA is (or soon will be) right up there with IAH and ATL. I just connected through FLL (on NK) last week, and that place - Terminal 4 - was MUCH worse than MIA. During the evening (domestic) connecting bank there were so many people in that tiny building you could barely move, incessant announcements that nobody could hear, 20 minute lines for the only bathrooms inside security, and no food other than a cold sandwich stand and a greasy fast food place I had never heard of. I remember T1 (WN) being quite nice and T3 (UA) being okay, but I'd still say FLL would be my least favorite airport in the southern U.S. by far.

Quoting jetblue777 (Reply 9):

PHL is actually one of only three major U.S. airports that I have never been to (the others being IAD and HNL). What makes PHL so bad?

It depends on how you rate things. Operationally, PHL is a nightmare, and (at least a few years ago) the staff were nasty, evil, and obstructive. The terminals are OK as long as you can stay close by .. B/C to the others, especially A, can be a long long long walk. If you rate by the shops and terminals, and if you fly on a clear blue sky day with nothing going wrong, you might find PHL tolerable.

For my money, PHL and JFK are the worst major US airports.

The only time I flew NK I thought this too. T-4 at FLL is WAY too small. It also is old and has no food options. I have used all the terminals at FLL once before and none of them are nice really. Even terminal 1 is small and does not have much to offfer. I think the reason MIA has such a bad rep over FLL is because a lot of people do international connections from MIA and when your coming back into MIA from an international destination its a hard connection to make with costumes and security etc.. But now MIA is a much newer and modern airports then FLL.

Remember your experience can very much depend on your airline, class of service, etc, not the airport set up.

LAX was designed as a local O&D airport. The distances involved from curb to the gate are relative short, no labyrinths of levels or large concourses to navigate.
