Ok... here are two more questions for y'all... and I will give hints later on.

#1... This is the world's busiest (in terms of operations) 2 runway airport.

#2... This is the world's busiest square mile.

Good luck.

For #1 I'd have to guess LHR.

#2, well (I'm really stretching here), at a guess I'd have to say MDW.

It must be Paris CDG.

No... Heathrow does have a 3rd crosswind runway... but Midway was the world's busiest airport before O'Hare became fully operational and is still the busiest square mile... probably the only commerical airport that is a square mile.

Not Paris either... they just opened up a 3rd runway and a forth one is under construction... it is not as obvious as you think.

Oops, forgot about that 3rd runway...

I'll take one more wild guess and say LGW (there is a second runway, but goes largely unused).

No, not Gatwick either... plus the north runway is so close to the main one that for all intensive purposes Gatwick is a single runway field. This airport has a fairly decent seperation between runways.

For # 2 I would have to say IAD....I think that it would be small considering DEN is the size of DC its self...For #1 is it ORD?

It is Phoenix Sky Harbor International... the world's busiest 2-runway airport, though there is a third runway under construction which is not done, but was supposed to be completed last year.

Dulles has 3 runways as well... and O'Hare is about 10 square miles in size. Its Phoenix for #1 and Chicago Midway for #2.

OK, let's try another one:

Anchorage International Airport used to be dubbed the aviation Crossroads of the world because of all the flights passing through between Europe and the Far East. What foreign airlines still serve Anchorage? (airlines which use ANC for a technical or refuling stop do not count- only those which take on passengers)

How about LGA for 2 runways?

It wouldn't be LaGuardia... I checked airnav.com for average daily ops and Phoenix sees 1400 or so, LGA sees around 900.

Well, I guess the busiest two runway airport might be Tokyo Haneda Airport (HND). Landing planes are B777s or B747s and the airport looked very busy... .
