Coming into EWR, seeing anything other than CO would make me happy, especially the foreign widebodies. I'm still waiting to see "Peter Max" up close from the terminal; so far I've only seen it taking off and landing from the parking garage.

I always look out for British Airways metal whenever I fly. I am usually able to find one at most of the airports that I fly into in the US. Just one of those things that makes the world feel a little bit smaller.
I have spotted BA planes at: EWR, SEA, SFO, LAX, PHX, TPA, IAH, DAL, BWI, JFK, BOS. Maybe some day I will make it to all of BA's US gateways.

Any widebody, any international airline, which makes JFK a great airport from a spotters standpoint... Just yesterday at JFK, I saw an SA A343, a Turkish A343, an AY MD-11, and an IB A346 (is that the usual equipment on the MAD-JFK route?).

everytime I go into FLL, I like seeing US planes at the gates, usually about 3 or 4 at one time, it shows they are doing well there. Also, I like seeing Frontier's planes, its always a different animal on the tail.
At BWI, I like seeing CO, DL, BA, US, and AA and other widebodies. Basically anything but WN.

When arriving in MIA I like to see as many international airlines possible. I like to see them in groups too. Like a AF A320 and 747 next to each other. Or 5 Taca planes or 3 Aviancas. Also like to see alot of AA. When arriving in an Airport out of the USA I like to see AA planes and when getting my baggage I like to see other flights from MIA come in. Just like how I love when you arrive durring the mourning or evening rush in MIA and in the International bag claim they have a sign with all the arrivals in the mourning EZE,GIG,SCL. And late Afternoon LHR,MAD,CDG,FRA,Helsinki, Bogata everything. I love that.
When flying to domestic airports in the US I really dont care. Hopefully planes I dont see much in MIA.
I have seen three AF planes parked next to each other at the gate in MIA once. an 744 A340 and A320! I love it when everyone looks out the window to see all the other airlines at the airport.
