Like most travellers, I've spent more time than I would have liked in airports (29 altogether). Some were great, some were hellish. My favourite is Vancouver's: the interior design and artwork are very classy. The worst is Gatwick, London, where the gates are several kilometers from the exit (or so it seems). Los Angeles (LAX) has the most uncomfortable seats, if you ever get stuck there overnight. San Jose, Costa Rica is the smallest international airport I've seen: they only had one customs agent, and I'm sure it was the same guy who cleared us when we left, too. :)

What's your pick for the best or worst airports?

Ive not been travelling that much. Yet. So for me its Yangon's crummy airport that gets the worst airport award....

The best so far: Singapore Airport

The worst: Johannesburg, but only because they made a biiiig f... up with one of our suitcases and my wedding ring got stolen... :(

Maybe not the worst in terms of layout/construction, but in terms of service/efficiency, I would have to say any airport in Cuba! You might as well throw away all common sense when it comes the check-in or customs.

Changi, Singapore was definitely the best I have been to.

I agree with LAX, I hate that place.

I haven't really been to any bad ones but a recent topic just made me think of how bad the conversion rate was at BWI. I won't hold it against them though as it's probably nationally regulated.

Worst- Chicago O'hare
Best :hard to say... I've had several that weren't bad, but for some reason I liked Incheon in Seoul. ( Also, for a really small airport, Luang Prabang was surprisingly efficient )
