Those mobile lounges are supposed to be gone maybe before the decade ends. It will be more than a pretty face...

LGA especially the Main Terminal; Good job on the Marine thoguh but the rest is a horrible throw back to the 50s. More delays than EWR The runways are way too short; alot of obsticles pilots must avoid to land and Flushing Bay is on the other end; according to pilots I've talked to from AC, US, DL and CO. Pilots have also had landing problems as well as take-off from DCA due to restricted airspace that must be avoided and that takes away the attention fromflying the plane and John Wayne in Orange County, CA due to the pilots trying to pitch the aircraft in a way to reduce the noise so that the rich snobs below don't whine to the airport on how loud it is. This results on the crew and passengers getting a rough ride inside as an AA 757 captain had stated. Now before anyone says JFK wait until the end of this year or beginning of next year when Air Train, International Terminal and T2 will be up and running.

LGA has my vote as the nation's worst airport. DCA, PHL, DTW, and MIA and OAK are my least favorite.
I love SEA, PIT, CLE, EWR, and IAH.

SFO is good only when there is no weather problems. The terminals are layed out well, and the new international terminal is great!

In my mind, MCI and DEN are a tie for best for different reasons. Both have few delays. DEN is very spread out and takes a lot of walking to get to where you want to go. The trains were the stupidest idea in the world because of the bottleneck and problems created when failures occur. Besides, I'm tired of being bombarded with UAL everytime I go there. I think that one concourse in sufficent, but they always want more and more gates. They're such a pain in the butt. Good thing Frontier is there to challenge them (and give lower fares to passengers like me!). MCI is so much more convenient, but the gate areas are stupid. I was early for my delayed flight last time I was there, but had to wait with my cousin outside the gate area because they only let ticketed passengers in behind security at the gates. They must have had to spend a fortune on metal detectors and security because of the design. It is more convenient, but older and less "cool" than DEN.

Worst: LGA....nothing even comes close to this hell hole.

Best: ISP...Long Island/MacArthur has a beautiful, easy, new terminal, never a delay, and is refreshing change than flying to JFK/LGA/EWR...check it out if you have to fly to NYC area.
