Nobody on Earth has ever spent more time than necessary in an airport. Airports are utilitarian structures, built to facilitate the effective transfer of people and baggage to an airplane on the tarmac. Efficiency at this task varies; some airports are certified hell holes that are confusing for travellers, and staffed by unhelpful personnel.
Buffalo Airport is different. It boasts an extremely simple layout and courteous staff.
The shops and restaurants there are nothing to call home about; were they, it would be counterproductive. Remember that nothing in an airport should keep you there longer than necessary. Good food or shopping might contravene this.
