8 Best Airports for Cabin Crew

We all love dreaming of our next holiday destination – or work layover (if you’re lucky enough to be Cabin Crew!) But how much time do we actually spend thinking about the airports we’ll be flying between?

An airport experience can make or break a trip, whether that be for work or pleasure. We’ve rounded up some of the best airports in the world. Count yourself lucky if you fly these routes!

1. Long Beach Airport (LGB)

And Long Beach has got a pretty great USP too – you can chill out alfresco before your flight at this airport! Breeze through security and then enjoy a glass of wine outside in the sunshine next to the flickering flames of a fire pit. Or you could if you were off-duty, of course!


2. Hong Kong International Airport (ICN)

4. Chicago O’Hare International Airport (ORD)

Aside from its culinary delights, Chicago O’Hare is really convenient logistically. There’s a Hilton connected to the airport for layovers (or when flights are delayed or cancelled due to weather. Which happens a LOT in Chicago!) Plus you can get on the subway directly from the airport. Bonus!

7. Incheon International Airport (ICN)

Incheon ICNWhat’s not to love about this airport? It’s modern, state-of-the art and immaculate.
