at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport,
It seems like KPHX is always updating, and for good reason. Biggest problem commercially are those passengers who use Phoenix as a stop-over and have to change airline (i.e. US Air to America West). It may be updated by now, but in the past you had to shuttle in buses between the terminals and the delays can be extensive as you have to go through security when you arrive at the next terminal. This has caused me to miss a flight in the past. Other warning is flying into/out-of/thru here in summer months in the mid-to-late afternoon time frame as this is monsoon season. When lightning approaches the ramp completely shuts down at a moments notice, stranding passengers in the terminals and in the aircraft if they're away from the gate. These delays can be minutes or hours.
