    Which airports have water bottle refilling stations? At Los Angeles International airport terminal 1 which houses Southwest Airlines has one at gate 13. I'm not talking about just an ordinary drinking fountain. This water station actually has two separate units and it can accommodate tall bottles. Also, it is free. It would be great to know which other airports have these bottle refilling dispensers.

    PHX - Phoenix Sky Harbor has them. Filtered water stations just for filling your own container.

    Honolulu (HNL) has em too. Great for me, I can bring my empty bottle of water and refill it at the station.

    I just go into the men's room and fill the bottle at the sink. I don't understand why you need more.

    Or Los Angeles. Now Hawaii has the best tasting water to me. In Hawaii, the tap water tastes as good if not better as bottled water. In Los Angeles the water is very "hard." For example if I leave tap water in a pot over night the next morning white calcium deposits form inside the pot. I imagine how my stomach and intestines must look like after drinking straight tap water living in Los Angeles. BTW, I haven't seen any water refilling stations in Las Vegas. Two weeks ago I paid $3.49 for a bottled water in McCarran.

    I believe that. We're spoiled up here in Oregon, it's also excellent here, and PDX airport has a few filling stations. British Columbia has the best water anywhere I've been. My regular work route takes me past Hope, BC, where Nestle has a big water bottling plant.

    BOS has them in the newer parts of terminal B and I believe terminal A too.

    Side note - this is a great thread.. please keep this one updated!!! I hate paying for a $6 bottle of water at the airport, water should be FREE

    Also -- IMO: Water in Boston is my favorite that i've tasted in the whole US. Comes from a huge reservoir in western mass. Better quality than any drinking water in bottles.

    I guess I'm spoiled! It is a great airport. My non-homer favorite is Bozeman, Montana. Beautiful design. Never busy or long lines for anything there.

    Next time you're in PDX, be sure to grab a cup of Clam Chowder at the Mo's they just opened in terminal C, next to gate C7. They are an Oregon institution.

    San Antonio (SAT) airport has them in the Southwest terminal. I was surprised they didn't have them at LAS. My wife really liked them and I thought the water tasted pretty good.

    Not to be a smart ass - but is there a few particular airports you use and would like to know about?
