How Asia's Ergonomic Airports Are Beating America's

Along with the internet, airline travel is probably one of the most important innovations of the 20th century. It allows ease of transportation from one part of the world to the other. But as the number of people who travel increases every year, there is a growing need for airports to innovate even further and cater to consumers. It's no longer about simply getting from one country to the other, it's all about the experience.

Clive Irving of The Daily Beast writes:

Of course, we don’t really need international polling to tell us that by world standards our [US] airports, like our roads, bridges and railroads, are crap. Anyone who covers aviation, as I do, feels the pain in a personal way: Why is the U.S. incapable of providing and running well the most basic services for one of the greatest advances in travel, the jet age, that was largely an American achievement?
Just take a flight from any of the New York area main airports to airports in Asia and you journey from chaos and dilapidation into what seems like another century.

Do you feel the same way?

They create airports out of previously underutilized land, we have to build them (for the most part) in areas constrained by centuries old existing infrastructure.

Back in 2004 I was in Seoul's airport and it was like being in another world. Spotlessly clean, and free carts to tote your luggage, plus polite people. This, as opposed to Houston Intercontinental Airport (I refuse to call it Bush), which is filthy and charges you for everything except breathing and they're probably working on that.
