It's nice to see Detroit land near the top of a best list for a change 2

When I first moved to the Detroit area full time in 1990 and had to fly out Metro airport on a regular basis it was a horrible experience. The terminals were dark, cramped and hard to get around and you could always count on a minimum 30 minute wait for bags when landing.

When the new midfield terminal opened a decade ago, DTW immediately jumped from the worst to one of the best airports I've ever flown out of, a process that was completed when the new north terminal in 2008. Aside from the whole TSA/security thing, it's a great airport. Now if there was a quick train that could get me from Ypsilanti to the airport I'd be all set.
