Yeah, O'Hare is awful, but still not as bad as Atlanta....the thought of that aiport makes me cringe.

The new terminals of the Detroit airport are nice.

I can't imagine what you don't like about the Atlanta airport. The overcrowding? The crappy parking and drop off zones?The lazy check-in and security crews? The prevailing thought that it wouldn't be that hard to sneak harmful items through security? Guys hooking up in the bathrooms?

I tend to like smaller airports like Bergstrom or Hobby just because security and check in usually aren't a hassle.

I'm sitting in the Phoenix airport right now... Decent, not good, not bad... Lots of places to eat both inside and outside of security, plus free WiFi...

O'Hare's A/C sucks balls in the heat of the summer. Especially when you are wearing a suit.

How can you say DFW is bad? As long as your connection isn't in another terminal it's one of the most convenient airports for drop off/pick up and getting around within a terminal.

Atlanta is OK, but you have to understand the train system. Same with Denver. I always feel like I end up walking a mile (high) in Denver.

LAX sucks....mainly because they lost my luggage when I flew out for the National Championship.

I thought Denver was nice, it is just 25 miles outside of downtown.

Dropping off at DFW confuses the hell out of me.

When I dropped off the porn stars after the bach party it felt like I had to loop around 8 times before I finally got to the right terminal.
On the inside it's fine.

Austin airport is very easy. Midland airport is cake! 6 gates! Actually used to be 4.

Agreed on Detroit. It's really nice. Very well layed out.

The Southwest terminal at Chicago Midway on a Sunday during the Summer is pure hell.

I don't have a problem with DFW or Love Field.

Best:
I think it's BWI (one of the ways to fly into DC via Baltimore). Lots of shopping and eating options.

Colorado Springs - great views of mountains, not crowded.

Worst:
Houston Hobby - this is how I envision an airport in a third world country looking. Filthy, smelly, and overcrowded. Also, you are guaranteed that whatever terminal your flight is leaving from will change at least three times before it finally leaves... an hour later than scheduled.

Have to agree with Peabody on Miami. What an overcrowded, overpriced dump that serves as a makeshift refugee camp.
