Hong Kong International airport
Amazingly modern architecture, efficient, easy access, convenient, spacious and clean, good service,, nicest and possibly the biggest airport shopping mall!!!!!!
Unlike airports like Heathrow, possibly the worst international airport in world.

Heathrow isn't too bad compared to the old terminal at Paris CDG - not enough check-in desks and space to line up. Stansted is my favourite airport in the London area.

Munich Airport was just so futuristic. Wonderful. I quite liked South Korea's Incheon airport as well.

My worst airports: JFK and LAX. I mean, Heathrow and Gatwick are pretty bad but these airports are just too confusing.

I have to berate LAX as well, it's like the fifth in amount of passengers, yet it is SO TINY and the design was exceptional for the mid 1980's but it is too small now. I prefer to use John Wayne instead of LAX. I will however give kudos to Denver. Last year I got out and the luggage was already there when I arrived!!! I guess the baggage system snafus were repaired??


look how tiny it is!!!


HUGE!!!!!

Who said the biggest is the best?

For me personally my hometown airport is no. 1! It is cosy, clean, new and you can find there just a little remainings of comunist era. One can be easily oriented: 2 bays - 3 piers (2 for Non-Schenghen flights, 1 for Shenghen flights). Whole airport image is styled into czech national`s colours: blue (terminal 1) and red (terminal 2) both terminals are connected with "connecting building" so you dont need to get out of the terminal. Taxi services have been improved a lot...only yellow cabs (from 01\2007 all cabs in Prague which want to stand at taxi-parkings will have to wear yellow), drivers in suit with yellow tie, they attend english lessons and lessons of how should they take care of customers and also there are special hosstes to guide you to your car and to offer you an umbrella when necessary. And prices are fixed! I think you wouldnt expect this from "ex-comunist" airport.

The facility is impressive, but it will take a year or two for it to filter through to the international airport rankings. There is usually a lag due to data collection and comparability.
