The new Beijing Airport looks amazing too. It's extremely subjective to say "this is the world's best airport". How about saying "this is my favourite" instead?

Another airport located is LGA, which on the other end of Queens all the way near Astoria, though it's not as big as JFK Intl Airport is.

Let's not forget Munich! It has won "Best European Airport" over the last couple of years.

Newark-Liberty Airport operates as a third thumb for JFK Intl Airport, so it won't get overcrowded.

LGA in a "best airport in the world" thread? You gotta be freaking kidding me.

My top 3 that I have flown through:

HKIA (efficient, well connected to city, remote check-in, lots to see and do in terminal, awesome Foster design)
KLIA (efficient, well connected to city, remote check-in, lots to see and do, good design, but LCC terminal is way far away)
Munich (efficient, well connected, great design and lots to see and do by European standards)

LGA would be near the bottom of my list. (inefficient, delays and more delays, dangerous-runways too short, ugly)

Two best airport's I have used are Porto, Portugal and Kuala Lumpur International.

Istanbul's Ataturk International is also quite good.

I used Beijing but the new terminal was not open so I cannot judge.
