In Your Opinon, The Best Airport In The Usa?

Wed Jun 27, 2001 10:42 am

Well Although there are many airports which could be titled as the ''best'', I would have to say that DFW (Dallas/Fort Worth) is my number one pick. Reasons are as follows: For one, Great service, Nice Facilities, Easy access to gates, quality shops/food services, and thats not all, Very easy to travel to almost anywhere in the world from DFW. Also although American Airlines does have there homebase there, I still prefer Delta.
Aaron, As always...Delta is the best, well in my opinion..

SNA- small, impossible to overbook, and nice takeoff
Isn't Chicago's third supposed to be like this minus takeoff?
I don't know, so this is my signature.

I've to go with DFW. ATL is a nightmare! And going through customs/immigrations area in ATL, the decor made me think of that movie from years back called "Coming to America, " looked like that phony village from which that prince was from! hahaha!!!!  Wink/being sarcastic

Atlanta Hartsfield International Airport

I guess I just enjoy flying through Atlanta airport. It is the 'Supermegahub' of my favorite airline Delta. I am in my element when I am there. Actually, I am in my element when I am at any airport, but more so when at ATL.

SNA for the spotting and the take-off and DEN for the service, concourses and cleanliness.

I would also say SNA, however, I have not seen too many other airports in the USA, except for Los Angeles, Dallas, and New Ark...

Let me give you another take: small is beautiful. Take for instance Bakersfield, CA (BFL). You get off the plane, they open a fence gate and you walk a total of 40 yards to your car. You don’t even have to walk through a terminal. If you checked on baggage, it will be at baggage claim in about 2 minutes. Total time from deplaning, to baggage claim, to car, 4 minutes! Who needs airport food when you can be at a real restaurant in minutes. There are hundreds of airports like this around the country. Use them!

Yeah, but the club scene in Bakersfield sucks. In fact, all towns where you have to walk down stairs from the plane have sucky club scenes. I like 'em BIG.

BTW, PIT is the best airport in the US. There just isn't any easier a large airport to get around in. O/D is easy, and so is connecting. Well thought out airport.


(But, the SF club scene is better than Pittsburgh's. )
