MKE...Milwaukee all the way, with the new D Coucourse for YX and the relatively recently renovated E gates for NW's Mini-Hub service.

BUF- small, yet modern.
SJC- nothing beats having to walk on tarmac to board your plane at a busy airport.
JFK- so many terminals, so many airlines...
MIA- I like seeing all the exposed wires from low ceilings.  Smile

Well, it WAS KaiTak until you know... they closed it down.

To fly in and out of has to be ORD because of United's terminal. To connect to and hang out in has to be SFO. For spotting, it has to be LGA.
Its better to be on the ground wishing you were in the air than be in the air wishing you were on the ground. Fly safe!

Orlando (MCO) it's just a great airport,
Newark (EWR) my home airport being modernized and connected to rail,
JFK it's big and lots of airlines,
SFO great approach and awesome views from the airport Marriott where I always stay.

ST.Thomas (STT) beautiful island,awesome approach,challenging runway and I loved walking out the back of CAL 727s onto the tarmac and then having to walk around the terminal underneath DL 757s and AA A-300s to get to the baggage claim.
It's a little quieter there now,less AA and CAL now flies the 737NG instead of the 727.

Eastern Air lines flt # 701, EWR-MCO Boeing 757

MIA- How could it not be my favourite? So much variety! Turkish A340s, Virgin 744s, Iberia A319s, Air France 733s (yes, as in 737-300), Tampa DC-8s, United 772s, Lloyd Areos Bolvianos A310s, American A300s, Continental BE1s, Northwest DC10s, Alitalia MD11s, Fine Air L1011s, airTran 712s, Delta 722s, Varig 763s, TAM A320s, and just so much more!

JFK- Same variety as MIA, just more European and Asian carriers and less Latin carriers.

FLL- Great airport. At first, it seems like your average American airport that serves 15M passengers a year with the Southwest and Delta jets all lined up, but then you see the Air Jamaica A320s, the Condor 763s, and the South African Airways 744s, and it's a whole different story.

MPB- One airline, three flights a day, and the most incredible landing approach of any airport in the US.

LAX- Variety once again, and to me, that's what matters.

PIT-Pittsburgh Intl'....How come nobody has said this one yet?! It is big, nicely designed, a great hub airport.

BUF-Buffalo/Niagara.....Small, but very easy to get to and fly from. Cheap Fares.

CLE-Cleveland Hopkins Intl'.....Easy to get to, the new D Councourse is neat.

Washington/Dulles (IAD)--Gotta love those mobile-lounges!!

Denver (DEN)--It's my closest major airport.

Rapid City (RAP) is pretty good for such a tiny airport (hey at least it has jetways), but flights are too predictable; no variety at all.

As far as flying out of and into, PDX is tops-great design, big concourses, and very comfortable.

But as far as spotting, LAX is my favorite.
