Pretty much as I expected apart from Las Vegas! 44m a year! World's 9th busiest airport! I have to admit I had no idea it was that busy!

I'm surprised that anyone is surprised about Atlanta! My lord, it is a massive hub.
Had to smile a few years ago when an inch of snow brought everything screeching
to a halt!! Doesn't happen very often.

Without a doubt, if such growth rates continue, if not the end of the decade, definitely by 2015, Beijing couild well be the busiest airport in the world.

I don't think so. Beijing wont grow beyond 80-90 million since they are planning to build a second airport, and even a third one.

Guangzhou's Baiyun and Shanghai's Pudong airports should appear in the top 30 before 2010.

The reason why NYC isn't higher is because as someone mentioned there is three major airports. But more then that only a few mega airports can serve as hub and spoke airports for the whole U.S. and those are generally inland. That is why despite their size LA, San Fran, Boston, New York, Miami, DC, and Philly will never be the biggest.

And that is the major reason why Chicago (along with its big population and inland location) has generally been considered the air and rail hub of the U.S.

Another reason why Chicago isnt number 1 is because it has 2 airports also.. Midway and O'Hare.. Philly has 2 airports, and I think DC has 2..

Yeah but New York - London is the most traveled route in the world.

Especially Atlanta, it's middle of no where.
....and Singapore, Hong Kong, etc,etc. I saw someone already answered this one. Indeed the answer is Hub. Passenger volume dosent have to be in any relation to the size of the city. The worlds largest airports have a majority of transit passengers who will never step outside the terminal.

I wonder if Stansted will make it into the top thirty soon giving London three airports in the list? In saying that maybe Gatwick could drop put of the top thirty.

Do you think Toronto Pearson would be higher on the list if it's landing fees weren't so high? Actually, pretty much all their fees are high. Anyway, what do you think? Would it attract more airlines?

This is true.
Within the next few years, O'Hare will go under major expansion (25-30%) increase in flight capacity. This should propell O'Hare into the #1 spot again.
