2. Buffalo - a little biased I know but the use of natural light, when there is any up here, just pours in the glass ticketing area and also the gate areas have plenty of skylights and glass corridors that allow the light to shine in. Also it is an easy airport to get in and out of, even from the farther gates people movers will hustle one right along.

For me, it is Atlanta. Not the prettiest by ANY stretch, but to this day, I still don't think I have ever been in a more simply laid out, more efficient airport. If you get lost in ATL, you are doing something REALLY wrong.

and of course, FAT. The expanded concourse features a 56 foot high wall of glass that faces the Sierra Nevadas near Kings Canyon National Park (about a hour drive away). Sitting there waiting for a flight and looking at the mountains is not a bad way to spend time.

Two weeks ago I flew into Venice, Italy. It was my first time arriving there by air, and I have to say the new terminal at VCE is wonderful. I was on the daily Delta flight from JFK. The terminal was clean and sparkling. It was quite attractive architecturally. And, we made it through customs and immigration in less than 25 minutes. If we hadn't had to wait on a bag, it would have been more like 10. It will be enhanced by the new gateway hotel and docks that are to be built next to it. (A Frank Gehry design)

Planemannyc - somebody who appreciates a good airport when they see it. Do you do alot of business in Upstate? Being in finance in the NYC area I know there is alot of business between Upstate and the city. But to anybody who has business in BUF take time to appreciate the architectural masterpiece that won awards when it was built in 1997. It definately is a "mini KIX".
