JFK is unironically shit because the way each terminal is run. If they could just fix that clusterfuck so that the whole airport was run by one entity instead of each terminal being run by a separate company with no cooperation between each other, JFK would be good.>>1481133>>1484150
I actually like LAX, though my last flights through there have been Delta and AA connecting to international, or international connecting to AA. I do remember it being a shithole when I flew to back when AirTran was a thing, and having to connect to LA's rail system by bus was annoying. But nowadays they have a huge amount of carriers, they aren't dominated by any one airline, so fares are typically great ex-LAX due to all the competition. TBIT is pretty damn good, blowing the other international terminals I've been in in the US out of the water.
I like ATL as an airport only due to the ease of transit between terminals and due to the food options. Boars Head/Piece of Cake in concourse B is a great place to pick up food, and if you have a bunch of time there' One Flew South. The airline lounge situation sucks absolute ass though, as does airline competition since Delta runs about 70% of the flights, with Southwest as the next biggest operator at around 20%.
For foreign airports, I like TPE a lot. It was kind of mindblowing seeing essentially a shopping mall in the airport the first time I left the US, and I really liked how some of the gates were themed, ex. a library gate, a record/CD gate, a Hello Kitty gate, and so on. HND and NRT are both very convenient to access Tokyo, but other than that andHND being out in Tokyo Bay, both of them just feel like normal, though very efficient, airports. Even the lounges in my experience were meh compared to what I experienced in TPE and LAX.
