Airports That Have Everything

While at Heathrow a couple of weeks ago I realized that the airport literally has everything that a passenger could ever want for traveling. From showers for passengers to having spectacles made in 15 min, the airport seems to have everything in at least one or all of the terminals, or at least within the airport complex (the church, bus station, etc).

The only other airport that I have visited that has services comparable to LHR is AMS Schipohl, with its own airside hotel amongst other services and stores.

Among the airports that I have visited that contain unique services is LAS where there is a fully outfitted 24 hour gym where you can even rent workout gear.

Anybody else have any interesting findings with regard to airports that "have it all", or airports with unique customer services not normally found in your average airport?

As B737-700 said, SIN really does have it all!

the pool and fitness centre is great!

Net cafe, Airside hotel, mini supermart, used to have a science discoery centre, replaced now by a shower facility and hydro-therapy type place.

Also, lots and lots of duty free shops, plus all the usual stuff!

SIN is great. Apart from the things mentioned. I thought the continuous movie theatre was great.

That is why they paid so much money and came up with the branding to call it, not an airport, but an Airtropolis
