I struggle to comprehend how anyone can argue that any of Singapore, Bangkok, Munich, Frankfurt or Zurich are in the same class as T5 architecturally. You must be kidding! If you'd said Kansai, Hong Kong, Beijing, Shanghai T2 or Madrid T4, I might understand.

No match? You must be kidding right? T5 is mind blowing terminal and more I use it more I fell in love with it. Munich, Frankfurt, Zurich? I beg your pardon, they are match for new South terminal in Gatwick, which became rather nice as well, after 1bln GBP investment but not to T5.

Trolls around here have reached a whole new level of trolling. I must admit though, it's hilarious.

Worth noting that Tottenham Hotspur released the stadium images above in error, and the design will be different to that above: http://www.haringeyindependent.co.uk...ion/?ref=var_0

Yeah but labour costs are cheaper in Spain and the site much more convenient. Building Madrid's T4 at Heathrow, between the world's busiest runways, would have cost a bomb.

Opinions. As I said, I can't judge the shopping or dining experience so I'm leaving this out.

Indeed. Hence in your admitted lack of experience, you were pointed towards the results of the World Airport Awards.

So what? Is that a definitive award, or maybe things can be still discussed a little further?

I don't have shopping or dining experience in many terminals, but I've travelled trough them.
