Quoting Cornish (Reply 1): Have to say that the Top 10 is no surprise at all
Really? I thought that KIX was a bit of a suprise to me. They were losing all that money til about 2 years ago. I guess they might become succesful after all if they can further strengthen their China routes.

Its a top 10 of passengers opinions - nothing to do with financial success or anything like that - otherwise you would indeed be right about KIX.
Just when I thought I could see light at the end of the tunnel, it was some B*****d with a torch bringing me more work

MSP first in N. America?! I would have to say there is probably much better choices. YVR and ATL in my 'passenger' opinion are much better than MSP. Don't get me wrong MSP is a nice airport, but I just don't believe it sits as #1 because it has a few Cinabuns or whatever makes the general public rate it highly.

It's funny to see that MUC is in the Europe category and that LEJ is in the Eastern Europe category. I guess some "recent" political developments have not caught on yet...
And then I wonder if SXF was also considered "Eastern Europe"...

My thoughts exactly, not to mention that I would never say that LEJ is better than both PRG and DME. Ok, you have lots of space in LEJ, but that is only because of a lack of passengers. Their only real plus is the intermodal terminal.
No matter where they put SXF, I am not surprised to not find it amongst the top 10 airports...
Too bad I have just been at four out of the ten top airports, and it's nice to know what other people think about them. In my personal Top 10 Copenhagen would definitely be ranked better, well and Arlanda would be found on the list aswell.

Very pleasing that Amsterdam is that high up on the list. I have never had an easier time through customs and immigration than in AMS, and the layout is very simple and clean.
I would have enjoyed seeing ORD on the list, as much as I know it has its problems, and the weather never helps - I just love those lights on the ceiling in the underground walkway! I like the rest of the airport too!

Quoting CO737 (Reply 20): I agree, that's a big surprise to me. MSP has really nice facilities but it sucks for connections (especially going from the B Concourse to G).
Not to necessarily defend my own airport here, because I am unsure of its number one position too, but that example you gave is kind of poor. B to G concourse is easy considering it is five minutes on moving sidewalks. I think you can get anywhere in that airport in ten minutes tops.
Also, it might be interesting to see if MSP hangs up there in the next few years with the additional runway this fall and other concourse and terminal changes coming over the next few years.
