Prepared by legendary engineering consultants Tibbets-Abbett-McCarthy-Stratton (TAMS), the study compares different aspects of airport terminals–mostly existing terminals, some proposed–such as size, number of gates, walking distances, and number of enplanements. Foreign airports covered: AMS, CPH, LGW, LHR, ORY, FCO, HND. US airports covered: ATL, DTW, ORD, IAH, MCI (new), LAX, MEM, MIA, EWR, JFK (all terminals), LGA, PIT (proposed midfield), SFO (proposed expansion), SEA, TPA and IAD. Although it is a high-quality, accurate study, it has some interesting little quirky mistakes in it. For example, DTW is referred to as “Willow Run Airport” and the ATL and ORD layouts are transposed.
