    Tea is just watery crap. Coffee is rotten pee.

    Everyone here drinks herbal tea, but i'm guessing the chart only shows drinks containing the "tea" plant. I've had those kinds of foreign teas, tasted like watered down flavoured coffee. So why settle for the lesser evil ?

    You're telling me 90 million people went to Atlanta in 2013?

    No, 90M people where in Atlanta's airport at some point. It's mostly a hub. So, people land there and board another plane, instead of staying in town or something.

    Exactly, not "to" Atlanta, "through" it.

    One of my layovers in late 2013 went through Atlanta. I was warned: Watch out, this airport is like the largest in the world or something. I got off the plane though - and saw my connecting gate right there in front of me. It was pretty sweet. All hail Atlanta

    Only times I missed a plane in my life were due to bad weather in Atlanta. And on both occasions I had to wait in line for about two hours to have my ticket re-assigned to the following day. And all the airline offered was a discount voucher at the local Hilton, which on both occasions turned out to be sold-out when I arrived. So I'm not a fan of the Atlanta airport.

    Edit: I do like however the monorail that runs from the Atlanta airport to town. On the two occasions I was stuck there I took it all the way to Peachtree Station (or something along those lines), which made my days less miserable than just hanging out at the hotel.

    What always suprises me is how some airports manage a huge capacity with so few runways.

    It's a bit strange to me that the airport are ranked by total area instead of passengers or runway capacity.

    I was also surprised by how they count terminals... last time I was there in Heathrow they had 5 not 3.

    Anyway the list sorted by passengers (2014 jan-sept):

    (2013, full year)

    it's a pity the lists do not discriminate between passengers transferring, internal or international
