I'm partial to IQQ. This picture doesn't do the dunes justice.

Centrair, in Nagoya, Japan (NGO)

The shopping area up on the second floor is really stunning, especially in the evening.

LH463, you just supplied me with a new desk top. This is where I dream of living someday.

AMS for the interior design.

BEY also has a runway on the water, which is beautiful to see when your landing, especially during the day...you feel like your landing on the water it self....so cool!!!!

LAX has a nice exterior....the LAX symbol and the famous purple thing.

I am biased - but it is such a great building. An architectural classic. Not a single supporting column on the inside.

I have always loved the grounds at MCO with all the lakes and beautiful landscaping.

But for the little GA airports, I like MTP. Surrounded by the sand dunes and quaint eastern LI homes...really cool!

For somewhere that looked so different from anywhere I'd been before, I'd say
Jakarta, in 1988 on a refuelling stop with MH from KUL to PER. The usual DC10 had gone tech, apparently.

Lots of wood in the terminal, though I can't find any photos inside.

Cork is very nice! Green grass, low cloud and a few sheep.

My vote goes to CPH and Bozeman, MT. CPH has awesome lighting inside with a real neat feel to it. Bozeman looks more like a ski chalet than an airport!
