6. London City Airport: There’s nothing quite like landing right in the middle (almost) of a great world capital. 

7. There’s a bar on the landing beaching on St. Maarten for drinking while plane-spotting. 

8. This is the best way to fly into Florida — at Orlando Melbourne (BTW, that’s not Orlando Orlando.)
