Does anyone have an idea what the largest airports are ?
This year I flew into DEN and ICN, and both looked enormous.
Looking at a map, I estimate DEN about 100 square kms (40 square miles)
ICN, also very recently built, must be in the same range.

Quoting Kaniksu (Reply 7): DFW is large enough to have both its own post office, and its own zip code. It is the largest airport in Texas, the second largest in the United States, and third largest in the world.
That is extremely hard to believe...

How is that hard to believe. It is almost 30 square miles, it has 7 runways and non of them intersect. We can use all 7 of our runways in North flow at one time. In south flow requires a little separation for 13L and 17L.
