What matter for a good airport is design, service and facilities

Duesseldorf (DUS) and Copenhagen (CPH) are superior to Frankfurt (FRA) and Amsterdam (AMS) by a long shot IMO.

CDG, LHR and FRA are all lousy.

Beijing must have the best airport in the mainland.

Plenty of mainland cities have new airports nowadays. Guangzhou Baiyun is also an impressive facility. Even some of the secondary cities such as Qingdao and Jinan have new terminals.

So, Queenie's opening 'eafrow T5 today.

I can't help but think how Asia is building terminals with spectacular, beautiful, atmospheric, warm, inviting and spacious airport interiors, whilst Britain still manages to make a huge interior with a fair bit of colour look cramped, cold, grey, unwelcoming and boring.

Have a butcher's. Shame I reckon.



Maybe it's the low-slung floors and lack of greenery? Britain's famed for it's green, rolling landscapes, why ever didn't they try to recreate that impression inside with a few trees and plants?

T5 looks very business-like and functional. Perhaps suitable for London's image as a major financial centre.

Maybe. You could be right.

Something like T5's interior will date very quickly IMO. But a few plants to soften the greyness wouldn't go amiss and would make it a little less brutal.

It looks somewhat like Stansted ... very bright, spacious, and open. A few plants would be nice though.

I'm sure this has been asked before, but which airport came up with the Beijing airport's kind of style of interior first?

It's not the first one I've seen that looks so similar to HK's.

Likely Stansted, which was designed by Foster and opened before HKIA.

Other than Heathrow, isn't JFK getting ultramodern terminals as well?

JFK has many terminals, and there is a mix of the good and the bad. The Delta terminal is deplorable. T1 and the new AA terminal is quite decent, while the oneworld T7 used by BA, Cathay, and Iberia is functionally decent. Jetblue's terminal is old but they're doing some renovations. Meanwhile, the TWA terminal remains abandoned but will soon form part of Jetblue's new terminal.

It's a mix. Transferring between terminals isn't easy. Yes, there is AirTrain, but hauling all that luggage in and out of buildings is not exactly a very pleasant experience.

Best three choosing between the airports I've already used:

1) no doubt, Schipol
2) Orlando
3) Newark


Opinion after reading 10000s of messages in this site:
1) Singapore
2) Munich
3) Schipol

The Jet Blue terminal is the only one I've exited and entered with JFK. And despite of the Air Train I did had a hard time interchanging with my luggages.
