And The Best Airport Is....

Mon May 03, 2004 12:34 pm

Which do you think is the best airport regarding it's interior decoration, technological advancement (could be anything.... like: A.T.C. tower, or it's lighting, or the way of handling planes... etc. etc.), shopping or whatever you can think of.....
I.M.O. the best airport would be Changi... the interior decor is just amazing with all those palm trees etc., and the shops in ther....

Yeah, SIN is very, very cool. I really enjoyed it a lot. But I must confess I was more impressed with HKG. It is truly fantastic.

I have never been to SCL (unfortunately) but I understand it is hands-down the best airport in all Latin America.

In Mexico, I like MTY. Though small (which restricts its growth), I think it is nice. I hope that the planned upgrades to CUN make it Mexico's best airport!!!
Next flights: MEX-LAX AM 738, LAX-PVG DL 77L, SHA-PEK CA 789, PEK-PVG CA A332, PVG-ORD MU 77W, ORD-MEX AM 738

Well, people will probably laugh at this but the one I personally like is GLA!!!!!!!
It's a quick 15-min taxi ride from the center of Glasgow, it's clean, modern,
small, and it doesn't take ages and ages to reach your gate. And bmi has a
very cozy lounge next to their domestic gates where I have spent several early
morning hours sipping tea and chatting with their friendly employees while
waiting for the first flight to LHR.

If I had to choose an airport to fly out of that would be GLA.  Big thumbs up

I know I am not impartial, but indeed as Eddie said, although a little small, SCL is great: all transparent (crystal and Steel), modern, beautiful, top security devices, top antifog devices, good duty free, clean, etc. The only problem: the name...

The best of Latam so far I know, but CUN really impressed me well

I like small airports more like BUR. I usually have more fun going thru check-ins and to the gates. Walking to plane is also great.
