Well, Heathrow, obviously. All of it.

Ditto CDG and AMS. Both ghastly places. DFW.

And my final vote, which may surprise some – HKG. The original design was to have been X-shaped, allowing far more gates than the underlined-Y that was built. Result – a satellite terminal with no lounges which can only be accessed by bus, and they are now building another midfield terminal to be accessed by train. It has just outgrown itself. Great airport, but like so many others the experience will get worse and worse as it gets busier and becomes reliant on bolt-on terminal buildings which weren’t part of the original master plan. Ah well…
