Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport rated the 10th worst airport in America, according to Travel + Leisure magazine.
In a survey of its readers, the magazine asked them to rate 22 airports in seven categories: flight delays; design; amenities; food and drink; check-in and security; service; and transportation and location.
Here’s the summation for Atlanta: “Public transportation to and from the airport was lauded in Atlanta. But a string of solid 14th-ranked scores—for longish waits at check-in and security lines, less than user-friendly Wi-Fi, slow baggage handling, average staff responsiveness, and location—kept it locked in 14th place on our score sheet. The shortage of kid-friendly areas was also an issue, given the vast size of this hub.”
The five worst: New York LaGuardia, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, New York JFK and Newark. The rest of the bottom 10: Chicago, Washington Dulles, Boston and Houston.
