When O'Hare and Heathrow were constructed, less space was needed for aircraft and passenger facilities. Now more space is needed, and the designs found at newly-constructed airports in Asia maximize land usage and plan ahead for growth.

Haha you're right it is pretty damn confusing. I've been to that airport quite a few times and whenever I'm there I really have no idea where I am unless I guide myself with the signs.

It's good to know more people are becoming educated about Qatar. I'd love to visit that country.

Oh, no, no, no. Qatar is a modern, prosperous and safe country with a booming economy, rapidly developing infrastructure, a multicultural populace and a rising tourism industry.

The middle east will have a number of huge hubs in the future, stable places like Dubai and Doha can take advantage of there central location between Europe and Asia as well as as Africa. This combined with lower fuel costs in the regaion and massive new fleets offering fantasic service makes for huge numbers of passengers. Most passengers will just contect at these airports but will spend huge amounts of money shopping while they are there.
