air travel is not much fun these days. but some airports can make it easier and more relaxing. my experiences, but some are old and things change. basically for me, if they have trains to run between terminals, the place is too big and i try to avoid it. - i thought the one in miami looked and smelled like a big bus station. it was really ugly. - fort lauderdale. perfect size. nice looking efficient facility. - washington national. can be scary to fly in and out of since it is next to the water. otherwise, nice place. - washington dulles. you have to take these big elevated busses to the midfield terminal most of the time to make a flight or connection. did not care for that. architecturally, the main terminal is pretty sweet looking. - philadelphia. eh. - baltimore. ok i guess. it is cheap fare wise. my memory of being there though was just after 9-11, and there were troops all over the place with machine guns. scary. - detroit. see miami. yuck. i heard they had a makeover though since i was last there. and probably wont go again since northwest went away and my frequent flyer miles went away too. - dfw. too big. - ohare. oh god. i dont think i have ever been there without having to sit behind a sea of other planes taking off. so you liftoff 30 minutes late most of the time. the terminal is huge. you need a jogging suit on if you need to connect. - minneapolis. too big. but the only airport i have been where i got cruised. this dude walking down to his gate had his eyes glued on me until we passed each other. - kansas city. really like it. you walk out of the gate and can be out on the street in minutes the way they have it set up. - denver. too big and it looks weird. it looks like a bunch of teepees from the air. - houston intercontinental. no major complaints. i laughed my ass off though when i saw this statue of george bush senior in one of the terminals to get my bags. he had like an army coat draped over his shoulder and back. - houston hobby. close to the city and small. easy to navigate but not pretty. - cincinnati. too far out of town, but ok otherwise. they mostly use delta and i am not a fan. - columbus ohio. no probs. i got a fare from there once visiting relatives for 19 bucks on new york air a long time ago. i had to run fast to catch the plane though. and i dont sprint well. i was afraid i was going to get there and they would say "yer fucked" and i would have to wait around for hours for another flight.
