I had never even heard of Schipol prior to this contest. I think all the Europeans voted for it cause it's their only one that got nominated enough.

If you would know something about Europe, you would know that theres big rivality between the nations, and for example Germans or French or english people would never vote for Amsterdam just because its the only European!!!

If you would check the worlds best-airports-in-the-world lists and rewards of the last 10 years, you would find out that Schiphol Amsterdam airport has been awarded best airport in the world for many times over and over again.
BTW; Shanghai Pudong?? Hong Kong Cheplapkok?? >> They may look better, but they certainly are not the best. Schiphol has been competing with Singapore Changi airport and in Europe the only competition comes from Copenhagen Castrupp!!

If you've never heard of Amsterdam Schiphol airport (!!) you probably have never ever been interested in aviation all you're life, or you have been living undergrounf all youre life.
Amsterdam Schiphol is the No.9 largest airport in the world. I don't know from which outback you come from, but everybody who have been flying to Europe knows, certainly Americans! Unbelievable that you don't know...(lithia springs???) ... ..Holy shit!!

Really now?

Which World's Best Airports In The World lists are these then?

Becuase both AETRA and Skytrax have given Hong Kong the award 6 times running in the last 10 years. It only lost out this year (Skytrax have yet to release theirs) to Seoul's Incheon.

Schiphol has been in the top 10 for the last 10 years, but it's not come close to the number 1 spot - previously dominated by Singapore's Changi - and now by Hong Kong's Chep Lap Kok.
