    OK, thought I would start a thread about Vape/Analog friendly airports throughout the world.
    I personally vape (discreetly without flaunting) at all airports but do from time to time imbibe on a analog and know some of you only vape in smoke friendly areas.
    The airports I list are ones I have actually been to but may not have visited in a few years, so if anyone has been recently and the rules have changed let me know. Also please post your list.

    For the UK lot, both Prestwick and East Midlands have outdoor areas after security - a luxury most airports over here don't have!

    Amsterdam is proof that a national smoking ban can have exceptions where air travel is concerned :)

    East Midlands area is a nasty gibbon cage with zero comfort.
    Just my opinion.

    Checked with the flight attendants at Southwest airlines the other day about smoking my ecig on the plane. The said they would prefer me not to smoke it in my seat but said I could come to the back by the bathrooms and puff away. So i did, got some strange looks from the passengers in the back but the flight attendants thought it was cool.

    Guess I'll have to switch to Southwest. American has it posted on their website that e-cigarettes cannot be used on the aircraft because it interferes with their navigation system. What a bunch of bunk!

    Here's a good one for ya'all
    Indianapolis, IN. - No smoking on airport property. Cops will even stop you while driving on access, entrance, and exit roads if you're smoking in your own car. $50.00 fine.

    Well done Indianapolis for alienating cig-lovin' travelers! That sucks.

    It occurred to me that Newark Terminal C, while fully non-smoking inside, is easy to 'escape' from past security (where all the bars are) and get outside and back in pretty quickly using the least busy security checkpoint, by gates 70-99. There's a door to a partially-covered smoking area, usually inhabited mainly by TSA and Continental staff, close to the bit where you 'escape'. Last time, I made it from ciggie to gate in 5 minutes! I've done this jaunt many times, and only once got ticked off for having 3 or 4 TSA signatures on my boarding pass already! I keep the laces on my shoes loosened to speed thing up too :)

    Big smoking room - has a little window where you can get your drink on while in the smoking room. Smells terrible.

    Dont know if it's still there (it's been 3 or 4 years since I flew through Phoenix), but British Airways used to have a smoking lounge inside the Phoenix airport.
