I haven’t been in many airports, but traveling this weekend made me reflect on the few that I have been to.
I love Midway airport only because I know it well and I love flying Southwest. No hidden fees. You can bring 2 bags . Life is good.
Bob Hope airport on California gets a big thumbs up. It is small. You walk off the plane on the runway. Go through a tiny airport and the 2 luggage carousels are in the front of the airport where you get picked up. So easy.
Chicago O’Hare-thumbs down. Way toooo big. We were fortunate to have workers in the United section give us some shortcuts to avoid longer lines–it meant going outside to a different terminal but it saved us some serious wait time. That was just the one airline terminal. Insane.
And last, we just got back from Virginia. I’m in love with the Charlottesville airport. It is small. No long lines. I actually got my boarding pass the old fashion way–a human printed it for me.
The next time I travel, I’m going to be looking into these smaller airports. I know it may cost a little more for a ticket. but you can’t put a pricetag on sanity.
