My least favourite airport is Mumbai international. In BOM, for a departure you are advised to check in for your flight 4 hours in advance. The airport is quite dirty, and there are few duty free shops. Also flight delays are a common occurance. On arrival to the airport, you will instantly fell the heat of india, as there is no air conditioning, and what makes it worse is that you could be queing for up to as long as 4hours (from experience). Please feel free to reply on your experience/s there. Will they build a new airport?

MIA is the worst airport I have ever been to in the US. I really was expecting to go to a nice, busy, O'hare type airport. However, I was COMPLETELY mistaken, in no way this airport is nice. Its old, its stuffy, its dirty, its dark (has VERY few windows), and the baggage claim and rental car agencies area in Concourse F are an absolute nightmare.
Now, I am not a very tall person, yet the ceiling was EXTREMELY low.
Generally, the whole airport's ceiling is low. The AA part is better than UA's gates, but still miserable. The departure on Concourse F isn't horrible, but still poor.
Overall, its a horrible airport. It felt like a prison somewhat because it was almost windowless. The FEW windows there are extremely tinted, so it was dark, the whole airport looked the same from the inside day, and night. The only thing that keeps the inside of MIA lighted is artificial light, which isn't very nice after a while, ESPECIALLY during the day.
I don't know, maybe I'm used to DEN having so many windows.
I was also stressed during that period and not feeling very good, maybe I exagerrated a bit.
Anyways, MIA is STILL not a nice airport.

Nashville and St. Louis are the only two I can think of. Never been to the US's famous bad airports of DTW, and BOS. Almost ended up going through BOS this past summer, but we went to Tampa and Sarasota, Florida instead.
BABY BOEINGS ALL THE WAY!!!

Queen Alia in Amman Jordan. I will never forget after a flight from TPA to MDW then a drive to ORD for a flight to FRA then to AMM I had to go real bad. As soon as we were finally allowed to deplane (Lufthansa A-320) we were escorted onto a bus (no jetways) by armed soldiers and taken to the terminal for "processing" I ran to the nearest bathroom tore open the door and dicovered a HOLE in the floor! I about died! Luckily a few stalls down I found a toilet but what a shocker that was! Tee-hee welcome to a new country!

mdw is a pit, new terminal is nice, can't wait for the concourses!
stl is my home airport and it's a spread-out pit. aa/tw want a new terminal between the new runway and the existing parallels. PLEASE GOD!
bos should be burned to the ground and rebuilt.
lga central terminal is being improved, but it's still a sh*thole.

LAX (Los Angeles International)
When you go through the international terminal's customs and your flight arrives at the same time as a packed China Airlines 747-400, Thai 747-400, and Eva 747-400, the place is an absolute nightmare!!!!!!!!
Then there's the process of retreiving your bags by navigating through a sea of human bodies...
