Indianapolis has the best place to leave Indianapolis at a rate of hundreds of miles an hour.

Staff there are well aware of how quickly you want to leave this god forsaken state, so they sympathize with your plight and work hard to get you out fast.

Gibraltar International.  Very close, accessible ground transportation:

Nope, best airport in North America, hands down, is Portland International Jetport in Maine. 13 gates, a nice pub in the center where you can watch any gate from, nice view(Green grass, houses, hills). None of the typical airport bullshiat. I don't have to march across a mile or more of building to find yet another terminal to get lost in.

Only airport I've been to that didn't actually make me angry.

Changi Airport in Singapore.

I got off a plane from Kuala Lumpur once, walked down the terminal, breezed through immigration and my bag was just coming around the baggage claim just as I got there. Strolled out and grabbed a waiting taxi to get downtown.

Total time in the airport from jetway to taxi? Maybe 10 minutes. Max. With a checked bag and immigration/customs.

Worst airport in the US?  Oakland, California. Atleast when I used it quite often 5 years ago. A small airport that is very crowded all the time and very dirty.   And few places to patronize or browse either in check-in or  at the gate.  Actually, almost nothing to look at because of its size.

Well, they do have the black muslim bakery cart selling the bean pies.

elvindeath: My favorite is McCarran International in Vegas - not because the airport is good, but because it means you're about to have an awesome time when you land.

When I was there it only meant that I was changing planes.  Still pretty amusing to see banks of slot machines right next to the gates.

I have to say that I think Detroit Metro, my local airport, is pretty nice.  The McNamara and North terminals are fairly new, the airlines have been putting in charging stations (especially Southwest, Delta is starting to do this), and the security lines usually aren't terribly long (but if they are, you can walk over to the airport Westin and go through their security checkpoint, almost no one uses it and you don't have to be a hotel patron to go through it).  Of course, my perceptions of the place might be colored by my last flight out of there when I spent a four hour delay (thanks, Delta) in the Guinness pub; in addition to Guinness they had Atwater Vanilla Java Porter, Fat Tire, Detroit Dwarf, and about 8 other beers on tap.

Helps to be located in a place where no one wants to go.  Crowds tend to make airports suck.

My favorite is McCarran International in Vegas - not because the airport is good, but because it means you're about to have an awesome time when you land.

Worst - hands down - is Hartsfield in Atlanta.  Total shiathole.

I think this is something where you really need experts to survey, rather than users. Users of various airports generally come from a particular region, so their expectations are shaped by very different experiences. Someone flying from regional back-country airports in China will be much more impressed by Shanghai airport than someone who is used to airport-hopping through the major US airports.
