I'd like to see what they can as it's a bit constrained for land and you'd need to cause huge disruptions to actually make major changes to the place.

Are they ever going to build a people mover as has been talked about? That would be a huge improvement on the ground transport front, have used them at other airports like Phoenix SkyHarbor and it's great being able to get on a shuttle from the edge of the airport premises directly to the terminal in 5 minutes. When I was there the other night a third of the drive from downtown was just getting through the traffic congestion in the loop.
Yup, approved and funding identified if I'm not mistaken

My favorite airport in the US is RDU, although it is missing decent public transportation to Durham and Raleigh.

JFK is one of the worst I've seen, although it does vary from terminal to terminal, but generally it is too congested, with inefficient immigration, inconvenient transfers and rather bad public transportation connections for an airport of its size.

Don't forget Miami... I thought LAX was hard to top until I had the unfortunate experience of travelling through MIA
