    Incredible deceitful leaking by AA calling PHL a dirty airport. It is in fact one of the most comfortable, cleanest, spacious, easy to access airports (great train link) in the United States. It has has great non luxury restaurants with affordable prices. American has starved it of flights, and those they do operate are some of the highest airfares you’ll see anywhere. One downside? The cartel schedules all its flights in the afternoon so an otherwise ghost town airport can have big takeoff delays. We need a breakup up of BIGAIR more than ever. Wonder what shakedown of taxpayers they have in store. If the Mayor had guts he’d throw them out on their ass for looting his city.

    PHL is pretty dumpy. While there are some nicer newer parts, overall the place is not up to par with their dirty facilities and unfriendly staff.

    It’s as good as you get for a US airport on the most important metric-ease of getting to and from your flight and then into town. These mega mall airportts with acres of empty space, that require huge walks and waits for people movers are horrific, as are the airports that are 20-30 miles out of town-Phl is 6.78 miles from center city. The contrast with NYC is striking-the dreadful navigation required to get to overjammed EWR&JFK or truly squalid LGA. It’s not Changi, but imao it’s mostly what an airport should be-.too bad American has put the city under siege with its boundless avarice. Don’t know about bad bugs, but these people are leeches.
