Quoting MTYFREAK (Reply 5): My favorite used to be MTY but now the way it gets crowded out of nowhere annoys me
Not good airport, some security issues lately, gates not marked (you have to guess where to stop the plane, no markings on the apron), not so many gates, and the gates in use the jetway is out of order (2 jetways last week), also, some rain and the airport fills of water.
Also it needs a second runway.

Quoting Ghost77 (Reply 4): Perhaps TLC will be a good option once the new terminal and runway enter in operation. Same thing goes for QET!
May be TLC is still far from being one of the best, because the new terminal wont be finished may be in some three years at least. But currently some work has been done facing the new carriers operating here by years end.
By the moment only a "major" up grade to the old Terminal. And of course our CAT IIIB ILS,the only in Mexico and 3rd in Latam
I think QRO (not QET) is closer to be that kind of APT. At least they have now all the infrastructure, and now they are having the traffic little by little.
And regarding the current Airports I d rather talk about Airport Groups, because they have several types under the same umbrella. I think ASUR and OMA are thought competitors. And BTW what happened with airport names after privatization, many of them just disappeared
OAX! I was just there on vacation, a month ago. The arrivals area is tiny. It reminded me of my days in HVN (New Haven, CT). However, it was fast and efficient simply because there were no other arriving planes beyond my MX A320. If there was another plane, it could have been problematic.
When I departed, it was extremely crowded. Maybe all their morning flights leave at the same time. Check-in took a long time. Not nearly enough seating in departure lounge, I had to stand.
Still a beautiful part of Mexico, and an attractive airport.

I think that was my buddy Carlos' point - these aren't necessarily the most efficient airports at handling large loads of passengers, but they are quite attractive and user friendly during uncongested hours. I don't think any airport in Mexico is really equipped as a super hub, but some other easier to transit than others, and certainly some are MUCH more visually appealling!!
His stories of how MEX functions are unreal - as crowded as both the domestic terminal and international wings get, somehow, they still manage to get the job done.
The only airport I have ever dealt with in Mexico is Morelia (MLM). A small airport, functional and no-frills (at least in 1998), with TAESA, MX, and AM the only games in town at that time. The layout was ridiculously easy, and both coming and going the processing was hassle free.
