I see that both KLIA and HKIA have a plot of land for future expansion when needed. What do their designs look like does anyone know? Also, I see its the same for Incheon which is evidently incomplete (ie Building by phases). Same with beijing. But why is beijing trying to build a new airport somewhere else when they still have that spare plot of land?

For KLIA, a new permanent LCCT known as KLIA2 Terminal is being built adjacent to the current Terminal Building and would be completed by 2012. You may view the thread in our local Malaysian forums for pics n videos...

Asia is a home of many world's best airports i guess. Because, they are recently built with latest design, technology and architecture. for example Beijing airport, it was built just before 2008 Olympic which looks absolutely futuristic.

futuristic, intricate and extravagant is the trend in asia... somewhere else, it's modest!

Pleasant customer service and good planning helps too. Changi was built in the early 80s - not 'old' by any means, but they've kept the place up superbly.

I don't really care for the industrial look of Suvarnabhumi Airport. Design wise it's nice but it doesn't have a "warm" atmosphere.

Singapore has the best arrivals visual experience (amazing baggage reclaim area) of any airport I have used while Beijing Capital has the most impressive departure experience.
