      It's too bad, because it was built right before the age of airport security. Originally it was designed so that you could park near your gate and walk from your car into the terminal and be fairly close to your plane. Couldn't have been a worse setup once security measures went into place in the 70s, it's been hamstrung by that architecture since.

      I wonder when the new terminal will get finished. Seems like they'd been planning for it for well over a decade. Theirs is a case where they really do need a new terminal.

      Dallas/Ft Worth for a couple of notable reasons. There are multiple terminals and getting between them requires a lot of walking and taking a tram. There are also multiple runways and they are also spread out so chances are you will spend 30 minutes just taxing out to where you need to take off.

      I avoid it if I can

      That's a shame, never have been through DFW but I got the impression it was alright

      wait this is an American airport? This looks like a middle eastern shitbox.

      Phoenix basically feels like the Middle East, especially in climate

        New terminal supposed to be done before the 2026 World Cup.

        Still going to be a relatively small airport compared to a lot of the other host cities though.

    Marco Polo airport (Venice) is a huge fucking mess.
    I don't even know how to describe it but there's no simply walking to your gate and sitting there like in any other airport.

    It's a random mess of lines and walking areas and gates all thrown into a blender. Fucking hated it.

    Best airport: Schiphol (Amsterdam). Narita (Tokyo) is also comfy.

      Schiphol is good but it’s not close in level to Changi

      Narita is comfy but too far out of the way, Haneda is better for this reason

      The only redeeming factor for DFW is that all the airline lounges are very nice.

      The gates are organized A, B, C, D, and E but the tram doesn't go in alphabetical order. who the fuck designed it that way what the fuck.

      Had a layover there going back to the states from Istanbul. When I landed Ilat Frankfurt, i had about approximately 30 minutes to deplane, get my passport checked by the cops, sprint through the terminal, get on a Tram, sprint to the security check point, get a secondary check at security, sprint to the gate, get my covid docs checked, sprint to the newley assigned gate, sprint back to another secondary security screening, and then sprint back to the plane as the last one on. All while carrying a 30 pound duffle bag in my arm and another 12 pound backpack

      I was literally dripping sweat from head to toe and they seated me next to 2 hot spanish girls. I'm a fat fuck by the way. 250 pounds. Shit was terrible

      Never again

      YYZ's security lines are the biggest fucking joke in existence. When I flew from there in February (before the massive travel wave a few months later) it took me over 2 hours to go through security and the entire airport was fucking PACKED. Shoulder to shoulder will poojeets and stinky arabs. Staff is rude as fuck and it was incredibly understaffed. Everyone in the 2nd security line (to go to the States) missed their flight to Puerto Rico due to the lineup. YTZ is a far better airport and if you can fly from there, do so.

    Two terminals split between european and arab airliners. Which is a problem if you're flying to Europe via an arab airliner. Nobody tells you this. There is no signage to indicate this anywhere. The terminals are 2km apart with no walkpaths or free transfer. You have to pay a taxi to take you between terminals.

        Be sure you have at least 3 hours between connecting flights because they don’t move your luggage, they unload the plane, you have to pick it up and take to next ticket counter and check baggage. Twice I’ve missed flights, they do this because corruption, the want you to stay in Lima and get expensive hotel or rent a bed at the airport hotel. I’ve only seen worse filth in Bolivia compared to Lima Peru

          From my experience 99% of problems at airports are from checked luggage.

            the nature of institutions and bureaucracy Travelling by plane has become a kafkaesque nightmare. I used to dread who was sitting next to me, now i dread every airport I have to pass through. For those who say U.S. airports are bad, try flying through colombia, or peru or other shit holes, some cities they're worse than bus stations. When I get back to the U.S. many times I feel like a travelled 50 years into the future.
