    This airport in Atlanta is monstrous. After checking in, I had to take a train inside the airport to the gate. And it took like four stops.

    The largest airport I've been in prior to this one was JFK, which also has a train but not actually inside the building.
    I've been through Atlanta a few times and quite liked some of it - . I like the way all the service people sing. I think it's a "southern" thing, but I'll stop there before I get into dodgy space.

    Chicago - now that's a huge airport!

    I'd say JFK is bigger than Chicago, but it's hard to tell. I've Only passed through Chicago without actually leaving the airport, just different terminals. Heathrow and Madrid are pretty big as well.

    What about you guys?
    Gatwick Airport with my mates (long time ago). Twice a year.
    Charter flights are so early and what else is there to do?
    Probably 4am (opening time)

    Valium is good too for that brat kicking your seat. No, not for him, for you.

    I had a bottle of champagne at dawn on my twentieth birthday followed by a couple of bowls of Red Lebanese and then the last episode of The Prisoner on a Betamax video machine, before setting off for my lecture.

    Did you take notes or were you able to remember it all?

    No one can be sure they remember what happened exactly in the last episode of The Prisoner.

    Danish breakfast with schnaps.

    "Gammel Dansk - traditionally drunk by Danes at certain festive occasions, often in connection with breakfast meals, brunch or at wedding anniversaries and birthday celebrations (which in Denmark traditionally begins in the morning). The name "Gammel Dansk" translates directly from Danish as "Old Danish..."
