    I could care less about these amenities, since I usually don't spend too much time at an airport anyway. If there was one airport amenity that I like, it would be an in-airport chain hotel. For instance, the Hyatt Regency Orlando Airport.

    Being able to catch up with sleep and not have to worry about airport shuttles, returning car rentals, etc is a bliss.

    Airport Spas

    An Airport Roofdeck would be a nice add, throw in a bar and possibly a pool and you'll have a nice way to spend a layover.

    That's one cool thing about PHL, the Marriott that's attached to one of the terminals there.

    I don't know if it still exists, but my favorite amenity at MSP was the small video arcade. It was a nice, surprise find during a long layover. :)

    Airside hotels, like the Mercure and the Yotel at Schiphol.

    See Bourdain's episode of The Layover from Singapore.

    Also: butterfly garden in Singapore.

    Despite the airport tour, can't really think of a place I'd spend time there apart from a lounge. I'm sure I've seen the best (Emirates first), but I'm also sure all the lounges are above average there.

    AF is pretty small, but perfectly functional; the Dubai Biz Lounge has lots of options, and I have yet to try out the KL lounge...that will be fixed Tuesday! :)
