Traveling from Europe to the US and flying onto a destination on the west coast, what Hubs would you recommend and which ones would you avoid?
I will be traveling to Seattle in January and looking for a suitable hub to change flights. I am a US Airways Dividend member and would ideally like to fly with a Star Alliance member but is not however essential.
People who know me, know I am a person that can't sit still long and will not be able to make non-stop flight from the UK to Seattle and need to break the journey.
I am only familiar with Philadelphia and Charlotte which I think are both excellent hubs, especially now the new A Terminal at Philly is open. But I am however a little apprehensive about flying with US Airways with their current cash flow situation.
I am looking for a place that has short Passport Control and Security Queues and just generally a light, airy and easy to use airport.
These are not based upon my personal experience but friends/family have told me to avoid Newark, JFK
, O'Hare and Dullas.
Have heard good reports about Detroit, Houston and Dallas FW
