Re: Airport Terminals that you really thought were unique?

TPA/MCO - Grouping these together as pretty much the same concept. MCO copied TPA which is older, but the people movers to the gate concourses are different from what you usually see, particularly when TPA opened. TPA was more special though because each airside was totally different, whereas they'...
