    Akron/Canton is a jewel. I've flown in and out of Laquardia and thought it was a dump - though I've heard that they've redoing it.

    Akron is so easy. Not sure if it has changed but you get your luggage and walk out to your rental car, just outside the door.

    New Orleans has done a lot to modernize its airport. They certainly handle a lot of traffic. Les bon temps rouler!

    I think it's the same, I've never had to get a rental there, just catch a shuttle out to my vehicle in the long term parking lot, lol. I've never had to wait long for my luggage, or a shuttle. Also, where the airport is located, there's virtually no traffic. It's a beautiful thing.

    It's really a great little airport. I always park short-term. Walk out 100 yards or so to my car and 77 N towards Medina.

    The last time I flew into Sacramento (2018) I didn't know you got off the plane, then walked forever to the shuttle that would take you to the main terminal where the baggage claim was.......I just followed everyone else....LOL......I don't remember doing that the first time (1990's).

    I guess Sacramento has gotten a lot larger since the 90's.
