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.

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

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.
Second largest hub in the world, with nearly 540 daily mainline flights.
620 daily flights to over 130 cities, and it's DL's 2nd largest hub. Convenient and nice.
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.
