The Rand McNally 2003 Road Atlas Deluxe has a good number of airport terminal maps of North American airports, I'd say about 30 or so, and I've used every version since 2001, but this new book looks much, much better! I can't wait to get my hands on it!

Looks like an Automobile Club of America (AAA) publication, so I just called my AAA offfice, and reserved my copy. Will pick it up after lunch. Thanks for the heads-up.

Just picked up my copy from AAA. Cost only $2.95, membership does have its privileges.

It's definitely pocket size, each page includes a map with road access, runway layout with numbers and lengths, and terminal locations.

The bottom of each page lists the airports' elevation, total pax per year, date opened (interesting feature), latitude and longitude, distance from city, avg daily ops, and a website/phone number.

In the back is an 8-page listing of airports with 3-letter codes and phone numbers (there are some really obscure ones here). Finally, there is a hotel, car rental, airline, and cruise line listing.

As far as airports with their own page, the top 51 airports are listed (except SJU), along with ABQ and OGG. Airports missing that had more pax traffic than OGG include ONT, PBI, and MKE.

Thanks, Tom,

I was under the impression that there were more detailed terminal maps with airline positions. Am I misinformed?

It only covers US Airports....that's not good enough for me.

Zachary,

I was looking for some more detailed terminal maps to be included, as well. It only shows a very basic terminal layout, and concourse identifier. But, no, there is no airline or gate layout.

Most people are intelligent enough to find an airline's gate if they find the right concourse first. Simple listing of which part of the airport to find a gate is sufficient enough. The general public doesn't care that United parks at gate X and US Airways at gate Y next to them, just that they need to enter the airport outside Concourse A for convenience.

AM Data services used to publish a quarterly book with many NA airports with specific airline and gate locations. Loved that!

Zrs70:

I've got one of the AM Data "Pocket Guides" from Summer 1990. I was nine years old when my parents got it for me... today it's becoming a relic as terminal layouts change and carriers come and go. My 1990 book still has Eastern, Midway and Pan Am in it - very cool!
