The world's busiest airport is Heathrow, London. Particularly with the opening of the new terminal 5.

E Brent said...

there are multiple metrics used to determine the "busiest" airport. So it is actually quite meaningless to base it on one fact (most flights, most passengers). BTW London is most often third when based on passengers behind Atlanta (Hartsfield-Jackson) and Chicago (O'Hare).

Dude, chill with the elipses.

thetallerpaul said...

that texas interchange doesnt even look remotely as complex as the mixing bowl in northern va

Nik said...

The airbus is not the largest plane in the world. It is the largest passenger craft, but for sheer size gets beat by the Antonov an-225.

Laurence said...

Most of those arnt realy amazing engineering feats though are they? Theyre just... big. You can get much better examples of complex engineering, only thing is theyre smaller.

SandraV said...

erm, since when does the Sydney Harbour Bridge have an upper and lower deck...?

Sam said...

as someone studying Air traffic control london is always regarded as the busiest when total traffic is compared not just passenger.

Besides the Airbus A380 is not the biggest plane in the world, its the biggest passenger plane.

Clive said...

i live in sydney and the harbour bridge only has one level with 8 lanes (6 open to public one train lane and one bus only)

hsfn said...

dude u might want to do some fact check...

pentagon is a much bigger office building in terms of square footage

and there is no such thing as a seven star hotel, thats just a marketing slogan made up by the PEOPLE WHO OWN THE FREAKING HOTEL. i could go around saying my acura is worth a million dollars, that doesn't make it true.....................

John Mc said...

Donghai Bridge is the 5th longest bridge in the world. It's not even the longest in China. The Lake Pontchartrain Causeway in Louisiana is the longest bridge in the world

Dear Lord, quit being such critical pricks. The top of the article specifically say it's the Guinness picks for these honors; not the persons. Their criteria might differ from what it's your self deluded heads; but they are recognized as the authority on these records. This also isn't prefaced by a year, though I will admit it has to be recent with the Dubai buildings.

The cost of staying in a suite begins at $1,500 per night; the Royal Suite is the most expensive, at $5,000 per night.[12]

Dan said...

Actually, to correct both the article and Komakino, the worlds busiest airport all around is Atlanta's Hartsfield. Heathrow is busiest in the number of international passengers while Atlanta is busiest in overall passengers + most arrivals & departures + most destinations served.

I like turtles.

Sergio said...

dude. biggest statue, rio de janeiro?? actually a bit west there is Cochabamba, Bolivia, the christ statue there is double the one in rio. But none of these compare to the 153 total height of the chinese Buddha that holds the record by wikipedia

Yeah that says world's highest statue. If your going to critique someone learn how to read first you dumb cunt.

Try driving it....its a b-word

James said...

The Hotel in Dubai is 7 star, its given this accredation as it has its own highway running up to the hotel, as this feature is unique to the hotel, thats why it claims to be the only 7 star in the world

taintedhalo123 said...

All of these facts are bogus...

Kevin said...

Whomever would go to the lengths as to disprove these feats have absolutely no lives and should create your own lists with all of your free time...

The longest bridge in the world stretches between Sweden and Denmark.
The Sydney Harbour Bridge was the largest single span.
Heathrow dwarfs New York ( and whch one are you refering to).
The Pentagon ahs long ben established as the worlds biggest office.
Other than that nice attempt. The Baldchemist

I think I'll have meatloaf tonight!

Brandon said...

Wow, you're all retarded.

mayur said...

wow you are unbelivable

AKA Sivle Yelserp said...

Actually Nik the Antonov an-225 is the largest plane flown more than once, The Spruce Goose still has a longer wingspan.
