Flying High Again

Exterior of CrystalMover Skytrain, Changi Airp...Image via WikipediaSingapore's Changi Airport is the world's favorite once again according to Airports Council International.

It is notable that seven of the top ten airports are in Asia / Sth East Asia. Only one in the UK/Europe and a similar number in the USA make the top ranking which says something for customer design and efficiency.

The article states that :
"Heathrow in London came in 99th, with travelers criticizing its long security lines and poor "ambiance." Dublin Airport placed 98th, Germany’s Frankfurt Airport ranked 126th and Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris even closer to being the worst in the world, at 137th"

My visits through Heathrow suggest no ambience at all -  even the new terminal has no soul. Changi by comparisson won 25 'best" awards in 2010 alone.
