I like SFO a lot too. Add JFK to that list...just 'cause it's New York. Whenever I touch down in New York the Frank Sinatra song always pops in my head...especially the lyrics "If I can make it here, I can make it anywhere" and "These little town blues...are washing away..."

Least Favorite: The Dallas-Fort Worth airport because I got really sick there back in 98.

I like Cdg a lot too...Paris is one of my favorite cities in the world, and definitely my favorite metropolitan destination in Europe. On the other hand, Heathrow brings back bad memories..."Thiefrow"

De Gaulle? WHAT, that airport is so complicated. Ive never seen an airport where you have to walk up a flight of stairs and through a restaurant to get to the rest of the gates, it's insane. I didn't mind the mini-Hermes there though, killed some time. I hated Heathrow as well, really nuttily designed, you get let out 5-feet from the door and there are information signs missing information!!


Dulles sucks as well, it is gigantic but the floorplan is badly used, and you have to ride those f-ing rover things to get to the other side. Can't we enter the 20th century and get a monorail or an underground walkway with little shops because god knows there ain't nothing on the other side.

I like Miami's airport, it plays Carribbean music when the luggage carrousel starts up, that's cute but a hardback Samsonite nearly took me out. I like Tampa's too, it is huge and in the middle of the airport they have these open air atriums where you can go and relax, lovely. I like Regan National the new section is GORGEOUS.

London Heathrow is the worst airport in the world! As for my favorite airport? I have to say Frankfurt Main, lots of shopping while you wait for your flight!

really? I actually rank frankfurt as the worst airport I've ever been to. ick...unfriendly, smoky, absolutely no place to sit, odd shopping priorities (want a new tie? brilliant! want to buy some water? tough luck), and it is blasted confusing to navigate...very clausterphobic.

my favourites are edinburgh and gatwick. edinburgh because it's so simple and unfussy...friendly, non-intimidating and very, very quiet which is nice when you're tired and waiting. gatwick because there's enough to do between flights, plenty of places to sit away from the crowds, and it's really small and easy to navigate.

another hater for London Heathrow here, but that's probably becasue I'm in it once a week it seriously needs an overhaul.

Also hate Amsterdam Schipol so smoky!

Liked Bilbao airport for a nice, clean design - almost as nice as the Guggenheim!

I love duty free shopping in airports (even if the prices are higher than normal shops!) for big boxes of chocolates and good champagne deals and new perfume.

the Liberia International Airport in Costa Rica! it's really small, fast, simple, with a low profile and little traffic.
i got too drink beer while waiting too go through customs, no hassle hah! plus there were little geckos and butterflies all over the place


but for my most hated airports... george bush international in texas
i've never seen so many fat people in my life. it might also have too do with being stuck there for over 24 hours
