I was just thinking about how some airports are much more prestigious than others, and wondering if this affects the way people think and feel about travel. For example, do you feel different on an LHR-JFK leg than on an LHR-ATL leg because of the prestige and famous history of JFK (and of LHR-JFK service at that)?
I live in DC now, and although I also love Dulles, I sometimes feel that flying IAD-LHR/CDG/AMS/BRU/FCO, etc just would not be the same as JFK-LHR/CDG etc etc. When I fly from JFK to Europe, I feel like I am part of something special and re-living history, as silly as that sounds.
Am I just being crazy, or do other people know what I am getting at?
