Best and Worst US Airports for Delays

The American Travel + Leisure magazine recently did a survey of airports to determine which airports suffered the worst delays, and which suffered the least.

Here are the results of the magazine’s survey:

Ten Worst Airports for Delays
1. Chicago Midway Airport
2. Baltimore/Washington International Airport
3. San Francisco International Airport
4. Las Vegas McCarran International Airport
5. John F. Kennedy International Airport, New York City
6. Newark Liberty International Airport
7. Chicago O’Hare
8. Miami International Airport
9. Denver International Airport
10. Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport

Ten Best Airports for Delays
1. Sea-Tac Airport, Seattle
2. Portland International Airport
3. Reagan National Airport, Washington, D.C.
4. Salt Lake City International Airport
5. Dulles international Airport, Washington, D.C.
6. Tampa International Airport
7. George Bush Intercontinental Airport, Houston
8. LaGuardia Airport, New York City
9. Charlotte Douglas International Airport
10. Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport

Of course, many of the worst performing airports are also amongst the nation’s busiest, so you would expect them to suffer more from delays than less busier airports.

However, take note of the above, because if you are flying in the US, it may be wise to schedule your flights, if possible, so that they avoid the airports which have the worst delays.
