Oh, GFK definetely fits in there. Bad for spotters...yes. Very boring (except for all the UND aircraft)...yes. Sometimes sickening weather...yes (high was 21 degrees today, probably 4 inches of snow of the ground).
But even more literally, it is next to crap. The city landfill just to the northwest of the airport. They've got several lagoons (not the tropical kind) for waste control. Really stinks the place up in the springtime when those things start to thaw out.

I know your CRP line was a joke, but it gives me a chance to tout the airport. The entire facility is in the final stages of a total redsign, including the addtion of a decent concessions and dining area (which includes a Chili's), open terminal spaces, and gate waiting areas that could easily be in the most modern metropolitan airport. Its 100% better, but you are right, it is still CRP!!

At MIA, there is one Terminal that AA uses that is very old. It may be T3. This place is a dump. It screams 1980s! The gate areas are small, the walkway is narrow, the decor is just plain old. Now, there was a certain terminal that I was very impressed with at MIA (once again I can't remember the ID.)

STL. STL. STL. STL.
Has nothing to do with the AA/TW fiasco. As an airport facility, Lambert (especially the main terminal, East isn't so bad) has its head stuck up its...runway. =) I feel bad for all the TW employees and it's too bad service has been cut so far down...but good goodness, that terminal is inconvenient, ugly, and inefficient at best.

Avion346 - LOL you nailed it - the damned BERRY TERMINAL at DTW!!!!
I just had inlaws immigrate to the US, and we got them buddy passeson British Airways out of Bombay - unfortunately the first view they had of America was that HIDEOUS terminal - parts of which are torn up INSIDE right now! I felt so sorry for them! I found myself repeatedly telling them "America is not ALL like this..."!
