Detroit's Edward H. McNamara Terminal

POST #    1919

When I was a student at U of M, I often found myself at the Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport. Back then (just a few years ago), it was dumpy, but in February of 2002, DTW opened up the Edward H. McNamara Terminal. Concourse A, which is where Northwest flies out of, is gigantic. It has 97 gates and an indoor tram that can get passengers from one end of the terminal to the other in 3 minutes. McNamara Terminal also has countless people movers, which are very important when you have a mile-long (!!!) terminal.

Say what you want about Northwest, but their hub in Detroit is beautiful.

I love that crazy-timed water-dancing fountain in the middle of the airport

Nice of Northwest to build such a lovely terminal, considering how often I've been stuck there because of delays!

both good points.

i totally forgot to mention that they have huge televisions in the waiting areas that are great during football season. some are flat screens, others huge displays on the wall.

I love that last photo.

I think Apple should put it on the box of their next OS release. Might bring in some coin for tienmao.com.
