I spent a couple of days at PHX
in early Feb and the weather was great the first day, but very dull the second. From the perspective of sun position, shooting to the south from the car parks is tricky when the sun is shining. The taxiway bridge can be good morning or afternoon (but need to change car parks), anything to the north is good all day.
Personally, I found T4
car park the best. You'll either get good take offs or landings on the north runway (it was take-offs when I was there).

The bridge from T4
to the south runway (not sunny this day):
You can use a shuttle bus to get between the terminals. It is also possible to shoot from T2
. I never went there, but I have heard that the views are somewhat obstructed. In winter the top of T4
is fine (but still warm), but the top level of T3
has a fence - you need to go down a level. I believe there is a spot to the south of the south runway, but that would require a car (which I didn't have in Phoenix).
I really liked PHX
- lots of variety (both airlines and types), several reasonable places to shoot. I was checked out a couple of times by security, but it was all very friendly.
