Domodedovo

Although it's not as popular, I'd have to say Domodedovo and Sheremetyevo is quite heard of in Eastern Europe, CIS countries, and Thailand, Vietnam, Egypt, Turkey (where Russians travel for vacation).

Would have doubted between LHR and JFK, maybe more iconic, but the issues that are faced at Heathrow are just unmatched.

The 4 most famous airports for me are in the following order:
  1. London Heathrow
  2. John F. Kennedy International
  3. Chicago O'Hare International
  4. Princess Juliana International

If closed airports are allowed, Kai-Tak International is one of the most famous airports of all.

I was certain that it was LAX because of movies, tv shows etc and I also voted for that.

Heathrow is very well known here in Denmark as well and so is CDG and JFK.

Newark is probably only known because its the airport Scandinavian Airlines uses in New York.

Many Danes could probably also name Gardermoen (Oslo) and Arlanda (Stockholm) and off course our very own CPH aka K°benhavns Lufthavn - Kastrup.

People is a very loose concept. For post-Soviet space and probably Eastern Europe i would have to choose between FRA, AMS and DXB i guess since they are the most popular transit flight stops. Chose DXB.

Hartsfield Jackson Atlanta International should be consider as one of the most famous. The most busiest airport in the world and the home of Delta Airlines!

You mean statistically? Because there are many other airports which are popular for transitů

DXB links Europe, Africa and beyond to USA with Asia. HIA and AUH are on the same approach, choice for the travellers and ticket prices

I'm not familiar with certain statistics on that matter, so this is just my guess that Dubai is the most important intercontinental transit hub in Eastern hemisphere.
