And plus, why does everybody make a big deal about DL? Coming back from MCO, I had a connection in ATL. It's so hard to connect there with that UPM! And the concourses are so long (not as long compared to NW at DTW).
As someone that's connected through pretty much every airport in the United States (every major hub and focus city in the US except for DEN
is a cinch to connect in. Extremely easy to use layout where it takes no more than 15 minutes to get from T1 to E36 (which are the farthest apart gates in the airport) - not too shabby when you've got 180 gates at the airport. Sure the concourses are a bit narrow, but in terms of functionality it's second to none.
is another great airport - yeah the A concourse is a mile long. There is the Tram though that is quite efficient to get around the A concourse. Moving walkways galore too.
Best hubs in the country are DTW
and I'd probably say that DEN
is up there if I ever went there. Airports such as PHL
, etc. where the operations are spread out quite a bit are nightmares. While ATL
can get tied up, I still prefer connecting there over CLT
due to the fact that it's easy to get around (I loathe the hike out to the E gates in CLT
and I was often getting sent out there since my flights would involve a GSO
leg) and there are Crown Rooms pretty much everywhere (no more than a 3-4 minute walk from a lounge to my gate).
