The USA’s best airport? Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport. The worst are the three big airports serving New York City.
Those are the findings of ThePointsGuy travel site, which crunched data on on-time flights, amenities and other items to rank the nation’s 30 busiest airports.
At the top was Phoenix, a hub for American Airlines and a major base for Southwest.
"Though Phoenix didn’t take the top spot in any single category (except how quickly you can drive to and from downtown), it was consistently among the best scorers in almost all categories, with excellent flight delay and flight cancellation scores, a convenient light rail, a high number of restaurants and bars for its level of passenger traffic and free Wi-Fi," ThePointsGuy website said about what helped the airport’s ranking. "About the worst thing that could be said about Sky Harbor, apparently, is it could stand to add more lounges.""
Rounding out the top five were Portland (Ore.), San Diego, Salt Lake City and Honolulu.
At the other end of the spectrum, the three big New York City airports swept the bottom of the rankings. LaGuardia came in last at No. 30, just ahead of No. 29 JFK and No. 28 Newark Liberty.
"LaGuardia earned the dubious distinction of having the highest rate of flight delays and cancellations, the second-longest drive time (tied with Newark and Denver) and extortionate parking rates to top it all off ($29 per day or higher)," ThePointsGuy wrote in its rankings recap.
