Narita Tokyo. Both terminals have observation decks. But they are not too good indeed.

Schiphol in Amsterdam has a large one that gives you good views of pretty much every wing.

Heathrow too has a nice one on the Queen's building.

YEG!!!!
Although its barley international anymore, and the variety of aircraft through there is dimishing they still have one.

It has limited view, you can only see the far side of the ram/apron and have only half a view of the 2 runways.
You can only see the tails of the planes that are parked at the gates!

I hope with the expansion it gets better, or they even open a new one.
