once i heard that, regarding only size in hectares or square metres, MCO is the fourth biggest airport in the USA. i saw a picture of MCO from the bird perspective and it really seems big.
is this true???
i´ve often been to DFW and it´s certainly huge, and most of the surrounding land belongs to the airport as well, so they could expand it even much more.
If only pure sweetness was offered, why's this bitter taste left in my mouth.

Ok, by area, King Khalid and Jeddah are two of the world's largest airports - both in Saudi Arabia. Denver International is third, and first in the United States. As for Moscow Airport - which one - there are more than 5.
