I’ve been to several airports (9-10) in different countries (4) and Charlotte Douglas International Airport is the best one yet. No matter how many downs I suffer during my travels, it all goes away as soon as I reach Charlotte.
The airport is easy to navigate with plenty of signs. Everything is located within the security check, so you have all the time in the world to explore the shops and restaurants, and you don’t need to hurry to the gate before it opens. Despite the massive amount of travellers there are always seats available. You can usually find a quiet and empty corner to relax, but since the entire airport is covered in carpet everything is fairly quiet anyway. There are rocking chairs in several places, and they have display cases with the history of flight and interesting minitatures of the building. The airport offers free wifi (courtesy of Google), and there are power outlets in several places near seats.
If I ever had to spend the rest of my life in an airport, Charlotte wouldn’t be a bad choice.over 2 years ago
