I am a fan of United's Denver operation. I seldom have many significant delays and with the runway layout and capacity, there are seldom long waits for active runways. Plus, I like the layout of UA's operations across the B concourse and the ease of connecting. Granted, I have never flown on TED, which being out of A, might be more difficult.

I bet the FedEx operation at Memphis is impressive. I've only looked over at the operation while zooming along the runway, but the amount of aircraft they accept, reload and push with the speed and accuracy they do it with is amazing.

As much as I'm sick of RJs and as much as the managment here aggrivates me, I'm gunna nominate Cleveland. It's never delayed, there are seldom ever ground stops like EWR, snow is removed rapidly in winter and congestion is cleared out quickly, especially now we're running 2 9,000 foot runways. If you don't mind ERJs and 737s, CLE is also a great airport to connect through and concourse D is a great terminal.

How anyone could pick ORD as the best hub is BEYOND me. O'hare suffers from chronic delays for any number of reasons. Additionally, the layout between flights is none to obvious sometimes.

A nice hub in my opinion would be Charlotte, Denver (as long as you are just transfering), DFW (as long as it is O/D), and Munich. Amsterdam is nice too.

NW at MSP - much better than ORD, and a nice terminal.

STL - small size, easy to connect, close to home
CVG - good size as well, awesome bars in RJ concourse, get to see lots of jets from the transfer bus
ATL - congestion sometimes, but good selection of bars and nice terminals

My favorite is ORD, but is plagued by WX for both UA and AA.

My second is DIA in DEN. It very seldom has issues.

From an aesthetical point of view, I find Northwest's DTW WorldGateway pretty impressive, at over a mile long.

I love NW's DTW hub. Lots of room to grow. No traffic issues. Fresh and new. The tram is great. No gate is more than a few minutes away.

As a passenger, I enjoy NW transfers at MEM -- compact terminal that's surprisingly airy and well maintained for its age; friendly staff.

As an aviation enthusiast and aircraft photographer, AA connections at ORD are great due to the excellent views of the international ramp and the south-side runways.

Safe travels!

1. DL-ATL
Gotta love the biggest airline hub in the world. 685 mainline flights and 300 DL Connection flights to nearly 200 cities worldwide.
2. NW-MSP I've got to have pride in my hometown. I've always loved MSP and NW's hub here, and they defend it like it's nobody's business. Great shops, looks like a mall. 2nd most cities served from any US airport after ATL.
3. AA-DFW
Second largest hub in the world, with nearly 540 daily mainline flights.
4. DL-CVG
620 daily flights to over 130 cities, and it's DL's 2nd largest hub. Convenient and nice.
5. CO-EWR
I went there in December for the first time, it was nice. I had a better appreciation for CO. It's only the only true HUB in the New York area.

My favorite hub/airline is Chicago O'Hare United Airlines.
I believe United has about 47% of the market share and American has 40%.

Other favorites include:
Charlotte (CLT) USAirways
Washington Dulles (IAD) United
Atlanta (ATL) Delta
