Not really recent...July or August 2003. My 6 hour flight from LA to Toronto ended up taking 24 hours because of thunderstorms.

They have them at Orlando too. I made the stupid mistake of joking to my Dad that my drug stash better be well hidden.

The Dallas airport is HUGE and there are a lot of restaurants and shops. It also has a little train that takes you from terminal to terminal...its fun

With Chicago, it depends on what time of year you go...summer thunderstorms cause a lot of delays. But I think that happens in Dallas too

why is Zoomy's name attached to this thread?

anyway, I haven't been to many airports. Changi in Singapore, Tokyo-Narita, and the Beijing International. I think that's it.

Zoomerang was talking about it another thread - it was a bit of a joke, really

I've been to

Cincinnati
Louisville
Orlando
Tampa
Owensboro, KY
Evansville, IN
Chicago
JFK
Heathrow
Luton
Gatwick
Barcelona
BWI
Dulles
Reagan National
Dublin
Shannon
Manchester
Charlotte
Atlanta
Pittsburgh
Philadelphia

I think that's it, but I may have forgotten some that I had a layover in or something. I don't fly much, unfortunately...just tend to fly back and forth between the same places.

when i was flying to india a couple of weeks ago, we had a 12 hour layover at Heathrow. i actually really like that airport now- tons of duty free shopping, and a direct line into central london! plus, they were playing HTDAAB over the PA system. it is a bit crowded though...

i've been to:
JFK
LaGuardia
Newark
Philadelphia
Boston
Las Vegas
Los Angeles
Miami
Nashville
Heathrow
Gatwick
Dublin
Paris (De Gaulle)
Cancun (?)
Houston
Tampa
Delhi

i think that's it... i actually really like Newark.
