Yes, and I'll do it again next chance I get.
I've parked at Charlotte/Douglas on several occasions, sometimes for several days at a time. I always use the covered daily parking. There is enough security, video and electronic gates for me to think a bike thief would focus his efforts elsewhere; like a back-alley downtown bar full of pirates for example.
In today's travel climate, the chance to unwind by riding home 120 miles under a full moon is absolutely worth whatever elevated risk I may face. I would say I'm exposed to more risk of mischief in one hour at Wal-Mart than one week at CLT. If one is too risk-averse to park in an airport lot, maybe motorcycling isn't for them anyways.
The most troublesome aspect for me is going through the toll plaza to pay for the parking; the bike doesn't set off the gate sensors and the road surface is pretty slick, which is useful to remember.
