    Re: Airport Satisfaction Study

    Agree with Detroit and Denver. Lived in both places and they are very easy to fly in and out of. MSP is not bad, but their luggage service is pretty slow. Those are the 3 I know really well.

    Now based in Chicago and will be traveling a lot, a little worried about the headaches O'Hare has in store for me.

    I am in Chicago as well...just flew out of there on Thursday. I got there 60 minutes before boarding (with my boarding pass). Self bag check in? 5 minutes. Security? 10 minutes.

    Re: Airport Satisfaction Study

    The article rates them about the same as I would.

    About LAX, I don't mind flying in, but getting out can be a big hassle if it is busy and they don't have enough security lines open. I have almost missed my flights a few times even when getting there 2 hours before hand.

    Even the dreaded O'Hare isn't that bad. The thing I don't like about O'Hare is there is nowhere to sit or eat.

    Houston is the quickest in and out major airport that I have regularly used. If using the "B" terminal (DSM and other small plane flights), show up at rental facility 45 minutes before your flight and you'll make it no sweat.

    Re: Airport Satisfaction Study

    Dulles doesn't have the "people movers" anymore. They finally completed a tram system that takes you between terminals. I just flew into Dulles on Monday and out on Tuesday. I was actually pleasantly surprised that the security lines moved relatively quickly, and the tram system still had that "new car" smell.

    I think they said the tram became operational just last month?

    Must have been recent. Last time I was there was late July....maybe I'll consider flying there again and saving myself a ****** landing at Reagan. Nah, but seriously I flew into DC on Thursday when they had 40 mph wind gusts. That approach was a tad bit rough.

    Re: Airport Satisfaction Study

    The worst airport in the US is Laguardia. What a dump! It is cramped, dirty, smelly, and worst of all, filled with New Yorkers.

    The one i was surprised was so crappy was Heathrow. Good security, and moved people through quick, but the design of it is just terrible.

    Re: Airport Satisfaction Study

    Last time I flew through Kennedy, to get to the international terminal, you had to leave the freaking airport. How cool is that.

    I always liked Dulles. Worked there a few years back and had fun racing CRJs on the tarmac.

    Re: Airport Satisfaction Study

    I have been in 12 on the list.

    First time through Newark was this week. It belongs on the bottom of the list. I really don't like Atlanta; having the terminals split up the way they do really bugs my.

    As far as O'Hare, I actually like that airport. If you have a longer layover, there are many areas you can check out and pass the time plust their food court is pretty solid.

    Re: Airport Satisfaction Study

    I remember being at Midway once in 2000 or 2001, before they remodeled it. We were hanging out at one of the restaurants having a beer when we all started to smell something. We looked around, and two of the floor drains started oozing black sludge up out of them. A sewer line had backed up and was flooding Midway with sewage. They evacuated that end of the airport and made everyone go to the other end. They must have had 20 people with mops and shovels trying to clean it up faster than it could ooze out of the drains. That was easily the worst experience I've had at an airport.

    The results are pretty interesting.

    I have been through 15 of the 17 airports listed, most of them multiple times, and I would agree that Detroit and Denver are tops. They have some of the best transit systems and features of any airport I have ever been to. Sky Harbor in Phoenix is rated way too high though. And O'Hare should be dead last by a wide margin.

    I haven't done Denver too much. And I think Detroit only once. I hate O'Hare with the fire of a thousand suns. I always seem to be on the 9:00pm United connection to DM and it is always delayed. Always. And everything in that area seems to shut down pretty early for Chicago. Yuck.

    I actually like St. Louis. Small enough to get around in. Good food. I like Memphis. And I like Dallas a lot.

    No kidding. That's the one great thing about living near a small airport. No hassle at all.
