Spurred by a discussion on my FB page where I mentioned being in the Atlanta airport on a layover and immediately got tons of sympathy posts about how awful airports, especially the Atlanta airport was. I professed my love of being in an airport, specifically that airport. (For the non-USians, ATL is a large airport, and usually ranked as one of the busiest in the world. It is huge and hard to navigate if you're not familiar with it. And yes, I will agree that a short connection there stinks if you have to change terminals.)
I love airports. I like long layovers because I love to people watch in airports. For me, getting there really is part of the journey and I consider my vacation as starting the minute I pull out of my driveway to head to the airport. I try to get longish layovers in airports because it's fun to sit and watch people and try and figure out where they're going and why and how they feel about it.
Which side are you on? Flying is about getting there and it's a neccesary evil or flying is part of the trip experience and is pretty awesome?
