I am still amazed that ORD
"compete" for the title of world's busiest airport and eagerly seek to claim the title. While that may have been something to be proud of in the 1970s, today that means passing though those airports will be more crowded and prone to delays. I cringe at the thought of having to go to those airports precisely because they are so busy. I would prefer to be in an airport to be empty.
When the new runway at ATL
opens and particularly if restrictions at ORD
remain in place or are tightened, it will probably leave ATL
with the highest number of aircraft movements as well.
Does anyone know where there are airports listed by O&D traffic? I suspect that the list of airports by O&D traffic would be quite different, with airports like LAX
, and JFK
at the top of the list (and on my list of airports to avoid).
