I’m no globetrotter, but I’ve been to 14 of these 100 airports. There are some airports that I consider rather unpleasant that made the list…

But my personal favorite is missing: Milwaukee’s General Mitchell airport. Perhaps it’s too regional for the list but it’s one of the most welcoming and family-friendly I’ve been to. It has a ping pong table(!), a fairly nice air history museum, a live pianist playing a grand piano, and a couple dozen interesting mosaics in the floor showing details of Wisconsin geography, history and culture.

The sample size is high, but there are some surprises, notably Heathrow & Munich being in the top 10.

  1. [I was going to write “not to brag” but actually] 41.  Top airports according to what?  Not to dis (3) Schipol, but who knows how many times I’ve had to take a mini-bus from my gate to my plane.  New york has the three worst US airports.  Why is Pittsburgh, which has a perfectly cromulent airport for its city below JFK?  Why is Newark even on this list? Why is Keflavik so low? and what about poor Xi’an Xianyang International Airport? 😉

  2. I know I’ve been to at least six of these, and maybe I’ve been to as many as 14. Denver??? Maybe. It’s possible. Minneapolis? Probably, but I don’t remember it. I’m not even 100 percent that I’ve been to Heathrow. I think so, but maybe I’ve only ever flown to Gatwick. All I know for sure is that O’Hare is a sucky place to spend 15 hours.
