I love Long Beach for the same reason...easy breezy to get through and they have a wonderful outdoor patio bar.

ATL, for me, is my favorite airport. Easy to get around, great food/drink options (especially in terminal E...One Flew South is awesome), and parking is usually very easy. I've only had recent experience with the international terminal, but it was very efficient and modern.

BNA (Nashville) is my home airport and it's fine. People seem to really love it that visit, but it's just ok to me. They do have some decent food options and lots of live music since it's "Music City".

MIA has been problematic for me 2x now. I haven't been back since they finished the construction (I assume they have) so maybe that makes it easier. Customs there was terribly disorganized. Getting from domestic to intl was more difficult than it should've been. Just not a logical airport but maybe the construction fixed all that.

RSW near tampa. what a breeze of a domestic airport, car rental right across the street.

LRM La Romana in the Dominican republic, limited flights, easy in and out, good duty free, no stairs. there is another in California that I cant think of.

Same here, but I'm biased as it's my home Airport.

The train from the City directly into the terminal is a huge deal to us as well (we live 5 min from the Gold Line), and without the long shlep required in many places. As you mentioned, the food & drink options have become great recently, with lot's of local favorites in the mix now. The nonstop to almost anywhere in the U.S. benefit goes without saying, and we have an impressive International network with the only nonstops to Asia (Tokyo & Seoul) from the Southeast.

They have recently launched a $6 Billion + improvement & expansion that includes literally raising the roof at Delta's 82 gates, and ripping out the exterior red panels to install walls of glass throughout the concourses.

I know some people complain about connecting through here, but it's fantastic as a home Airport. The fact that they push over 2,000 flights a day through ATL with almost zero delays on a good weather day is just astounding.

Favorite International Airports - too many to mention, we are totally behind unfortunately. Probably Madrid Barajas & Seoul Incheon.

Best domestic airports I have used were Denver, Detroit, Minneapolis, and Baltimore.

Regarding International Airports I would rate both Reykjavik-Keflavik, Copenhagen, Amsterdam and Munich very highly. Munich's Airport was pretty cool since they actually have a biergarten/christmas market outside of the terminal, and Amsterdam's airport has a casino and an outlet of the Rijksmuseum located inside the terminal.

I like Seattle, Dulles, Salt Lake and Denver (new). Others like Phoenix (clean and modern) DFW and Chicago O'Hare are nice but if you have a tight connect whoa betides if you have to go to a far away gate or another terminal (ORD). LAX is my least favorite. Granted I've avoided it in recent years but the last few times I was through there it was constant construction.

I'd say Munich was my favorite airport outside the states.

La Guardia and O'Hare are embarrassingly "third world" airports. They are old, crowded and dirty.

LHR is so difficult to navigate that it can ruin your trip.

DFW "E" terminal is wonderful.

Beijing was very nice. New, not crowded, clean and totally out of place for China.

Kudos to both Tampa and Orlando airports. Clean, appealing with relatively easy ingress/egress for airports of their size.
I've always liked Detroit's airport as well; modern and efficient.
Atlanta is still remarkable to me in light of the volume that it handles. Plus the recent concession upgrades are great.
Can't think of any other U.S. airports that are particularly impressive to me. Denver's is an...experience; I will give it that.
As far as smaller airports go, I rather like Manchester NH, White Plains, NY and the one we have right here in Brunswick.

Seattle I find pretty dated and lackluster, which is surprising considering the importance the city places on other facets of public transportation. Getting to your rental car is a colossal PITA. But they do have rail connection to downtown, which many others can't claim.

Not Tampa at the moment. Just flew through there this past weekend, and there's a lot of construction. It's kind of a mess.
