The airport can (and usually is) the worst part of traveling. You have to deal with crowds of people and long lines that at sometimes seem to stand still. When I travel I get into what I call "airport mode" and I walk about 10x faster than usual and I am on high alert! I start taking all my stuff of to go through security as soon as I get in line (an I wish others would do the same).
Here are the top ten most crowded airports in the US (most are airline hubs)
1 - Hartsfield - Jackson Atlanta International Airport
2 - Charlotte Douglas International Airport
3 - Los Angeles International Airport - Had a layover here when flying to Hawaii, thought taking the tram was going to be a problem but it wasn't. We made our flight with time to spare!
4 - Chicago O'Hare International Airport
5 - Seattle - Tacoma International Airport
6 - McCarran International Airport - I have never had a problem here, employees are trained for large crowds
7 - Denver International Airport
8 - San Francisco International Airport
9 - Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport10 - Newark Liberty International Airport - Again, this airport's employees are trained for crowds
Have you ever had to change planes at any of these airports? Have a story about it? Share!
