The world of air travel has had a cloudy couple of years.
Staffing shortages caused delays and cancellations to skyrocket, with 88k+ domestic flights canceled between January and May alone.
But you know what makes a flight delay easier to deal with?
A functional airport
The Wall Street Journal ranked the top 20 largest airports in the US across 19 factors, with some stark findings:
- California airports are the cream of the crop — San Francisco was the top-rated large airport, while Sacramento took the crown for top-ranked midsize airport.
- Avoid New York and New Jersey at all costs — Newark and JFK were the two worst-ranked large airports, while LaGuardia was the worst-ranked midsize airport.
The bottom line? Now might be the time to take that holiday trip to Hawaii — if your flight is canceled, at least you’ll have a nice place to pass the time.
