In addition to the worst airports for spotting thread, I thought I'd make a best airport spotting list too. Here is mine, everyone add you're list too!

ATL (not bad but not the best. too many DL)

Others I've heard are good:

Santa Ana

LGA/JFK can be great for spotting if the Port Authority police don't nail you... and they often do..

I haven't been out in a while though-- maybe they've loosened up? Then again, if it's inane and stupid, the Port Authority probably does it... so I'd guess they are still pretty strict...

Nail you?  confused 

Al they can do is look at your ID, you are doing nothing wrong. I have met many NCPD and PA police at JFK, they have been fine.

Haven't been to MIA or LAX but JFK is a little better than LAS. Still my favorite.

I realy enjoyed spotting at JFK, within the airport perimeters by terminal 4 is excellent!  Smile

I've heard LAX is awesome! SFO is good also, but I didn't have much time there!

SAN is also great, along with LAS!

EWR is not very easy though  Sad

Rob!  wave

I agree with the above ,but would like to add:
ROC (yes,not as exciting as LAX or JFK) but not bad. Good off-airport pics can be had-spots where the Sherrifs can't kick you out.

BUF is good (though only for AM shots). Can be very cold in the Winter  Smile

My other faves are:
FLL (was better when the 'holes' were there  Sad )
