how often does someone praise an airport? almost never, but pittsburgh international airport is unique: a well-organized place with a great shopping mall to while away the hours.
the airport is divided into 2 sections: landside and airside. after you check in and go through security on landside, you take a speedy monorail to airside.
all gates, a-d, are reached by this monorail; no switching to buses like in philadelphia. you get on the rail on one side, face the opposite wall, and get off on the opposite side. no pushing between on/off passengers like in atlanta.
the airmall has great shops: the gap, victoria secret; even a day spa and, best of all, prices are competitive with off-site shops. no being gauged like at laguardia.
if only usairways hadn't left there might even be passengers to enjoy the ride.
