Frankfurt (FRA). Many connections (especially Lufthansa), good airport service.
Besides, I also like London Heathwow (LHR) very much, which is bigger than FRA and offers even more connections. But you sometimes have to make long ways from one terminal to an other when changing planes.

Out of all of the ones that I have been to, I would have to say IAH is my favorite. If anyone remembers Western Pacific, they had COS as their hub before changing it to DEN and ultimately going out of business. COS was pretty nice. It would be a much better alternative to DEN. Midwest Express' MKE hub is not too bad either.

..which of course is my favorite hub! (Just got in from there after a short and unspectacular flight from TXL, so first flight in 2002 is already over). It's large but quite efficient, it's LH home base and of the big hubs for all Star Alliance. Great connections to all over the world!

For looks, I would say either AA at DFW or DL at ATL.
When taxiing to and from certain rwys(forgot which ones) you see a few specks of Delta, and then you sea a never endless number of silverbirds.
With DL at ATL, it is amazing to go around all of the terminals and look at just about every plane Delta operates(it seems that way).
For easiness, I would say AA to BA at LHR, you have to switch terminals, but it is an easy switch and on the way, you can see a nice variety of airlines and types.
My absolute favorite is American at O'Hare. Connecting there is very easy, even when connecting to and from an international flight. It is really neat to see all of the American, United, and foreign airline's heavies.
If you are there, make sure to check out the old Admirals club between Councourse K and I believe L. You can essentially see the bulk of American's domestic ops, and the international terminal with the heavies.
Give me a break, I created this username when I was a kid...

My hometown hub, MIA, of course. Despite the fact that AA carrys pretty much half the traffic, there is still a lot of compietition. Six airlines alone between Miami and Caracas. Four between Miami and Santiago de Chile. Nearby FLL also keeps fares at a pretty decent rate (FLL is still way cheaper, though). Some holes in MIA's domestic network, but, internationally, it's excellent.
