Ok....which airport terminals are the nicest (newness, cleanliness, spaciousness, etc)?
Which are the dingiest (antiquity, cleanliness, spaciousness-or lack thereof)?
My choices are as follows:
1. New terminals at Ontario, CA
2. Las Vegas Terminal D
3. Orange County
4. Terminal C at Newark
5. New West terminal at San Diego

In need of some repair and/or replacement:
1. Newark, Terminal A
2. LaGuardia, Central Terminal
3. San Jose (old terminal)
4. Las Vegas terminals A+B
5. Los Angeles, Terminal 3

You are absolutely right about the huge difference between Newark terminals A & C. I've been going to C for years, and it is a beautiful terminal (especially considering the recent renovations/addition.) I hadn't been to terminal A until this weekend, and I was shocked at how decrepit it looked. A is some relic of the 70's with pain inducing pastels of yellow, and extremely poor facilities/eateries. I hope the Port Authority starts some renovations there to bring it up to the standards of C.

I love the new terminal at San Diego, my hometown! I think it was well worth the money they spent on it. Also Milwaukee's General Mitchell is very nice - modern interior, nice waiting areas, big windows to watch planes.

The worst airport I have ever been in is Moscow Sheremet'yevo I. That is the domestic terminal across from Sheremet'yevo II, which is also pretty lousy. It's ancient, no modern baggage handling, no waiting areas, no real services, nasty bathrooms. It needs to be razed and completely redone! Sheremet'yevo II is dingy, unattractive and too small for the huge capital it serves.
