    Which airport do you prefer, and why?

    For some, it's the only option... ex: WN is only out of HOU and CO/UA is only out of IAH.
    For others, it's convenience. I live way closer to HOU than IAH and parking is a lot easier, at least for me. Most of my trips are on WN and if I need to go somewhere on AA I would have to connect at DFW. Eagle goes to DFW from HOU, so still easier for me. DL flies out of there as well. My last trip to ATL was NS out of Hobby.

    I remember back in the 80's where Hobby was still considered the "main" airport. It shifted since then to IAH. But that seems to be changing again since LUV seems to provide the only "mainline" service to most places Houstonians want to go to.

    Now if my Garmin would start working properly around the South Loop.

    I prefer IAH for two reason:
    1. My parents are closer to IAH
    2. I prefer CO as my airline

    I heart CO and live closer to IAH. I also love that it has lounges and better food options. However, I do have some love in my heart for HOU. It is smaller and often easier/quicker to navigate.

    Found the people movers very odd in order to get to terminal D (I believe) at IAH. Seems like an ordinary door at the end of a hallway but when you walk through it you are trapped in a people mover! Hope they can connect the terminals by some other means in the future.
