According to the annual survey carried out by Skytrax (British civil aviation research company), the international airport of Hong Kong is the best in the world for fast check-in and baggage claim operations, quantity and efficiency of services, shops and restaurants, factors which meet the passengers approval. Hong Kong's airport was second in last year's survey.
The podium is all Asian: equal second Seoul-Incheon and Singapore-Changi, followed by the best European air station, Munich, which was third in 2006. In the top ten also Kuala Lumpur, Zurich, Amsterdam-Schiphol, Vancouver (the only one in North America), Kansai (Osaka) and Madrid-Barajas, which was 22nd one year ago.
Best carrier Singapore Airlines, followed by Thai Airways and Cathay Pacific (Asian supremacy again). The first European air company, British Airways, first last year, is now tenth.
So it makes me think that if someone get used to the services and facilities of Chek Lap Kok, it's more likely s/he will criticize other airports for efficiency and choice of dining venues.
