A quick check of the October passenger traffic statistics just posted on the ACI-NA website reveals that a significant number of large hub US airports served fewer passengers this November than last November. The most notable exceptions - Los Angeles (up 7.2 percent), Las Vegas (up 7.1 percent) and Houston (up 4.4 percent). BWI would probably be included on the list if they were a Top 30 airport. None of them approaches Madrid Barajas (up 16.4%!).
