    Haven't updated this in a few years! New(ish) one's in blue above.
    Favorites still Detroit and Dallas. The international (E) terminal in Atlanta is pretty good as well.

    If I'm motivated later I'll try to organize it a little better. Was just looking at a map a few years ago I think and not going alphabetically.

    Boston's Domestic terminal was awful, Atlanta's International was epic! Typically I got to Boston early and Atlanta late, wish the circumstances were reversed.

    ^ ha, I've just (like an hour ago) dropped my Dad off at Manchester airport, he's flying via Atlanta and we were just saying that it was a good airport. :)

    EDIT:having said that, apparently he had a nightmare transfer there (big Qs at immigration and security, only just made the connection) and then managed to lose his bags in the car park (that would be HIS fault tho). Hmmm.

    Still loathe Stansted with an absolute passion. Horrible to get to, always far too busy for what it can handle at security, at departures, at the gate. Fortunately not had to ride the stupid :emoji_zipper_mouth:ing tram on my last few visits. At least passport control finally had all their e-passport scanners open yesterday because the last few times they've had 2/3rd's shut.

    Oslo Gardemoen was brilliant, easy to navigate, clean, spacious, loads of food options at every area of the airport, and the transport option all linked in the one building.

    Don''t think I commented on just how god-awful Faro airport was too, the actual building looks very impressive but it wasn't :emoji_zipper_mouth:ing finished so we walked out of arrivals into a marquee tent to sort out transfers etc...with piss-leaking portakabins propped up alongside.

    Had the pleasure of flying from Detroit on a few occasions now and I've been impressed everything. The terminal is one straight line with loos and shops every so many feet. So much seating, easy to navigate, find departure boards and so on. It's spotless, too. So yeah, Detroit is my favourite.

    Detroit is great! It's the closest (big) airport to me and is filled with a variety of cultural shops! The fountain was pretty impressive too IMHO.
    The only bad part of the airport is the road to get there. It can be a bit of a tight fit.

    Yay, loving all the KDTW love <3 I definitely think the Delta terminal is the best (which is the straight line one with the fountain), but even the North Terminal is fab too. It's a shame that their international flights are always so much more expensive than Toronto's, but I do try to fly out of there as often as possible. <3

    Also, the Vancouver airport looks fab!

    Might as well do a little update. I forgot about Boston Logan and I also added some smaller, regional airports to my list.

    Detroit Metropolitan Airport (the best)
    Toronto Pearson Airport
    Philadelphia International Airport
    Hartsfield-Jackson (Atlanta) International Airport
    Orlando International Airport
    Vegas McCarran International Airport
    Newark International Airport
    Boston Logan International Airport
    Los Angeles International Airport
    Fort Lauderdale International Airport
    Holguin Frank Pais International Airport
    Punta Cana International Airport
    London Heathrow International Airport
    London Gatwick International Airport
    London Stanstead International Airport
    Amsterdam Schiphol International Airport
    Berlin Schoenefeld International Airport
    Rome Ciampino International Airport
    Barcelona El Prat International Airport
    Stockholm Arlanda International Airport
    Dusseldorf International Airport
    Hong Kong International Airport
    Tokyo Narita International Airport

    And, airports I have flown to as the pilot...

    Windsor International Airport (my home base, and therefore it's fab)
    Chatham-Kent Municipal Airport
    London International Airport
    Sarnia Chris Hadfield Airport
    St. Catharines Niagara District Airport
    Leamington Airport (runway the width of a sidewalk)
    Pelee Island Airport (the most hick airport I have ever been to... I thought there was a terminal building but it was a broom closet)
    Tillsonburg Regional
    Stratford Municipal
    St. Thomas Municipal
    Oshawa Executive Airport (where I almost hit a bundle of birthday balloons on final approach)
    Kingston Norman Rogers Airport (flew right next to the CN Tower windows on the way, it was fab)
    Goderich Municipal
