    ^^Last week I live in Ann Arbor (about 30 mins away) and travel a fair amount for work. Yes, it has improved but it still sucks as far as lost baggage, crabby workers, esthetics, etc.

    I agree with Frankfurt and Dulles, both are awful.

    My one memory of the Frankfurt airport was waiting in a line to go through customs so I could go home. We were stuck in a massive, literally not moving line for over an hour (and they were open, they were just slow and not doing shit). I remember everyone sitting on their bags and bitching about being stuck and worried they wouldn't make their flight. Luckily I listened to the person who told me to get there MASSIVELY early for my flight.

    The Miami airport was pretty horrendous too. Nothing like paying over 10 bucks for a prepackaged turkey sandwich because the hour before your flight is not enough time for you to go to the terminal in an entirely separate building that has the food court in it-and the though of having to go back through security when you wanted to actually get on your plane because going to the other building takes you out of the secure area.

    Love the new Hong Kong airport. Great shopping from Popeyes chicken to Hermes. No language barrier- perfect airport. Take a taxi and check out the bridge and harbour- just amazing.

    Shithole airport. Newark without a doubt.

    I really like it since it is so clean and calm. It's always a nice feeling to come home and pass through it.

    The one in Copenhagen is the nicest airport I've been to.

    The worst one is most definitely Heathrow, I fucking hate that place with a passion.

    Heathrow sucks, but JFK and Newark are worse.

    I've been through half of them and more or less agree, but surprised BAngkok didn't make hte list. Nice airport with a freaky futuristic design.

    Some of those airports look pretty nice, although I haven't been to any of them.

    Mini golf courses? o_O

    I wouldn't mind showing off my hometown airport, Shanghai:







    And where I live now... I can tell you that the Sydney International airport is pretty sucky.

    I've been to Copenhagen but I mainly remember there being naughtyish movies in one of the stores.

    Heathrow lost my luggage on the way there AND back... top of the worst list. Pittsburgh in the 90s sucked from what I remember, except for the Disney play place thing they had.

    I've been to a lot of the airports mentioned.

    I did test the security at the Munich airport in October of 2001.

    I had bought an antique crystal egg shaped paperweight there. I usually put souveniers in my carry-on-that time was no exception.

    Apparently my paperweight photographed like a grenade when it went through the x-ray This was right after 9-11 sooooo lets just say it was a HUGE ordeal.

    i agree dallas-fort worth is fucking ugly. but at least it's efficient. i've flown through there a lot and they've never lost my luggage, security lines move quickly, etc... even around christmas and other peak periods.
