  • I always find these sort of lists fascinating. I never understand how you can compare small airports with huge international hubs. Small airports are superb for ease of use. You can usually park right outside the terminal and its only a few steps to the plane which is absolutely perfect. However, they are very restricted with the routes they offer.

  • I do not understand how SFO got on this list. Having been to over 30 different airports, I can say SFO is one of the most cramped, confusing, poorly organized complexes I’ve ever passed through. Flying into SFO several times has always been a horrible experience.
    In the US. I would say that BWI in Maryland was probably the easiest airport I’ve ever used.
