Some airports are awful. Like LGA Laguardia. Others are not bad at all. DFW, Dallas is, in my opinion, a pretty decent airport. LAX is a hassle, but PSP Palm Springs, and SNA John Wayne Orange County are pretty nice. And LGB Long Beach is delightful.
But those are big airports, servicing jetliners. I grew up flying out of a tiny little strip into SEA SeaTac. And even that wasn’t too crazy of an airport. Some airports have, shall we say, impressive approaches. Most of us have seen videos of the crowds watching jets come right over the road to St. Maartens.
And St. Maartens twin, St. Barths, has one of the more impressive approaches, skimming downhill to a rather short runway.
But my favorite crazy airport doesn’t even have runways! Barra, off the coast of Scotland, simply uses the beach. It has regularly scheduled airline service, but the schedule varies due to the tides.
But for crazy approaches, and if you’re only going to watch one video on this post, this is it.
What’s your thoughts on best and worst airports?
