(Terminal A, B and C). Easy to get around from terminal to terminal and clearly marked signs (which are very helpful for travellers not familiar with the airport). Also, EWR
used to be my home airport.
I don't have a "worst", but I do have some gripes about MIA
This is difficult for me to say, because I see that there's some major improvement projects going on there at the moment AND
it's my new home airport, but MIA
has had me scratching my head in bewilderment several times over the past year.
Prior to moving down here, I visited a bunch of times and found the signage lacking in terms of aiding travellers not familiar with the airport (i.e. me!) with such simple things as what level ground transportation was on and where the rental car company desks were located in the terminal (I'm speaking about both AA
's massive terminal(s) and Continental (H? - not sure, only flew them in there once).
The latest "gotcha" happened about a month ago. I looked up my AA
flight to EWR
on the net prior to driving out to the airport, saw that we were departing out of terminal A, so we parked right across terminal A in the Dolphin garage.
Got into the terminal and, lo and behold, no check in desks or E-Ticket boarding pass machines! Walked over to Terminal B - same thing! Ended up having to walk all the way to Terminal C (or was it D?) before encountering an E-Ticket machine.
Now, this last complaint isn't against the airport - it's more an AA
issue. It just amazes me why they can't put in some E-Ticket machines in terminals A and B. For travellers entering the airport at Terminal A or B from the parking garage, taxi, etc, they have to walk all the way over to Terminal C or D just to check-in.
End of gripe and let me repeat - MIA
is in the middle of some very ambitious upgrades and I'm looking forward to the day when I can list it as one of my favorite airports to use as a traveller.
From a spotter's perspective, it's top notch!
