A few weeks back, I asked people on Twitter: Do you know any not terrible airports? The response was actually somewhat encouraging -- from major hubs to small regional airports, people chimed in with votes for places that make travel a little easier. I've compiled them into the start of some kind of 2018 list: The Not-Terrible Airport List.
Do send in your recommendations for places to add.
I also asked folks for airport bar tips on the heels of that great airport bar piece in The Week I featured in the last newsletter. Two lovely recommendations came in from friend-of-the-newsletter Nicholas Haddad:
"The magic of Santorini is perhaps only matched by the utter disrepair of its airport (JTR). But the rooftop terrace and bar is the perfect antidote, where you can enjoy single-serve bottles of sparkling wine while watching the island hoppers take off and land.
"And I always look forward to the Gino's Pizzeria and Pub at the Charleston, WV airport (CRW). The cramped bar in the back is stuck in 1978, and the bartender always calls you hun as she poors you drinkable pinot grigio. As an added bonus, it's outside security, so half the bar is filled with locals from the hollow, enjoying their afternoon beers and mediocre pizza."
