Top Ten Worst Airports In the United States

Basically all the airports in the mountain states (Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Utah, Colorado, and Nevada) suck! But anyway all these airports are the stupid and bad ones. They also take a while to wait in.

The Top Ten

1 Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport

You could easily get lost in this airport, or even miss your flight with all those people and YouTubers who film that airport. This airport is so crowded you get miss your flight, beat up all those people, and just get out of there and DRIVE to the city you want to go to. But this airport may have stuff to do, but it is so crowded you would have to race through all the Hispanics in Texas and get to your gate as quick as you can. This is probably the most cramped Airport in the United States. Say you are flying from Albuquerque and want to go to Miami, you would probably get cramped in the Dallas Airport that you might miss your flight to Miami, Florida. But anyway I wish there weren't that much people in Dallas and Dallas/Fort Worth Airport.

Too hot and almost always delayed flights. Hate the place. Depresses me.

Some of the worst customer service too. Just a bunch of pissed off people here.

Like the rest of Dallas, you're better off driving through the airport because walking anywhere takes you years here.

2 Phoenix International Airport

This is probably the warmest Airport in the United States. And it's because the temperature is always above 90 degrees and you would probably have to go find a juice bar and get a glass of Lemonade to cool yourself down. But try to run as fast as you can in that heat to get to your gate because there are ALSO lots of people in the Phoenix International Airport. In fact, it's probably the third most crowded Airport in the United States, after the Dallas Airport, and the New York City Airport. But anyway if you ever go to this airport be sure you are a fast runner and get to your gate as quick as you can. Otherwise you would probably miss your flight to Los Angeles. But yeah it is so hot in that airport you should probably bring some water with you before you melt to death. And the reason why the Phoenix Airport is so hot is because PHOENIX happens to be the hottest city in the United States. In fact, I think Arizona or California are the warmest states too!

If you want to go to a GOOD airport up here in Phoenix, go to Sky Harbor.

Worst airport. Constant runway construction causes delayed flights.

Terrible food in terminal 2. No real restaurant and "free" wifi sucks

3 Missoula International Airport

This is probably the only bad part about Missoula. Everything else is great. I should know. Been on trips here every summer since my first year in this world.

This is the worst airport in the U.S. Too small, nothing to do, and it's TOTALLY boring. If you ever fly from a city (say like Phoenix) DO NOT go to Missoula airport! It is VERY VERY boring. I think all the airports in Montana suck! Missoula should keep getting smaller, and smaller, and smaller, and even end up like a ghost town. If you go to Montana, and fly in an airplane, I recommend just going to the one in Butte, that's the ONLY good one in Montana.

Too small for International, son

4 New York International Airport

This airport is the second most crowded airport in the United States, after the airport in Dallas. Even though this airport has the most things to do, and even though it's the largest airport in the United States, it still sucks because of all those people. One things for sure, this airport has some weird things. Anyway we are going to New York state to see my aunt, uncle, and baby cousin in Kingston, NY. And we WERE going to fly to New York Airport, but we decided to just go to the one in Albany, because Albany is much smaller and not to many people and stuff like that. But anyway New York Airport is too crowded and you might easily get lost.

Once my brother was sick and the plane was bording. And the people that worked their SOLD out tickets


5 Newark Liberty International Airport

Bad not a lot of bathrooms

Hate this airport with a passion, rude & unhelpful staff, makes you wonder how they passed the job interview! Think I would rather stick pins in my eyes, than ever visit this woeful dump, makes equally awful Vancouver airport look good and that's saying something!

Security takes forever, staff is rude. Employees for airlines that are usually known for great customer service are incredibly rude and forced me to check one of my two carry on bags, even though I previously had carried-on BOTH bags at another airport without any trouble.

The worst airport ever in the state, always delay always cancel flight , I hate this stupid airport.

6 Minneapolis/St. Paul International Airport

I've been to this airport before, and it sucks! We had to wait for about 3-4 hours just to wait for our flight to Albuquerque, and it was so boring. However, there are some restaurants here that are alright, but everything else is BORING! This is probably the worst airport in Minnesota. I can tell you about 500 reasons this airport is so stupid, but I'll just say 5 because 500 is too much:

5. This airport takes a while to land.
4. This airport only has a few restaurants.
3. This airport only has a few restrooms.
2. This airport takes a while to wait in.
1. And number 1 is, it's a VERY BORING airport.

I'm so shocked that you had to wait at an airport, your plight is on par with the holocaust I think, because nobody in the history of mankind has ever been bored at an airport before, It's a completely unprecedented form of suffering. I have such shame that my city of Minneapolis didn't treat you to the amusement park rides and fun factory's of all other airports.

Rude. Food restaurants tastes weird. Little sister found a hair in her Starbucks yogurt. But that's Starbucks for ya. Best airport

7pm on Halloween and all restaurants/bars closed. Apparently dinner isn't for visitors in Minnesota.

7 Chicago International Airport

Dirty, slow tea, not friendly.

Even though there a things to do in this airport, it's still stupid because it is the most crowded airport in the Midwest, and it takes a while to wait in this dumb old airport. Here are 5 reasons why this airport is the worst airport in the Midwest.

5. It takes a while to wait in.
4. All restrooms are taken at times.
3. Sometimes your flight gets cancelled.
2. All the stores are pricy.
1. And number 1 is, IT'S TOO CROWDED THERE!

Well that's about it, this airport is a stupid airport, you have to wait 6 hours until you can leave that airport, and too many people there that are RACIST!

Just thugs in government uniforms rifling freely through your luggage and stealing whatever they can. illiteracy, stupidity and rudeness are endemic at this hell hole of an airport.

I have searched it on Google Images, and it does look good. But being in Chicago, one of America's biggest cities, It probably is very crowded. - CoolCat999

8 Philadelphia International Airport

I feel staff are there to earn a paycheck and to give help when asked not in there job description and yes there process for international flights is ridiculous. I had two hours to get to flight. Did not stop along way even once and still couldn't make flight. Worst experience to date

International immigration processing is slow and not well suited to handling large numbers of people. We missed our connecting flight because of their inability to handle large crowds of arriving international passengers. The most telling thing was when we cleared immigration, we told a porter that we missed our connecting flight and he said "yea, that happens a lot".

Rudest employees at any U.S. airport, too many ghetto blacks, enough said

Who the heck put philly on here

9 Los Angeles International Airport

Severely overcrowded and congested airport, and terrible terminal layout is a recipe for disaster. Only fly here if you must, otherwise fly out of orange county.

Why is the airport here? The airport just got renovated and it's very clean. By the way, the name of LAX airport is 'Tom Bradley International airport'

Why the hell isn't this one #1?

10 Billings International Airport

This is the second most boring and worst airport in Montana. Too small (but just a tiny bit bigger than the one in Missoula. ) This airport has NOTHING TO DO IN IT AT ALL! Some of the airports in Montana suck and it's because it is so least populated cities. I recommend not moving to Montana at all! And for those of you that LIVE in Montana, try making some arrangements for moving to another state, with bigger cities and much better airports (like California, New Mexico, Arizona, New York, Florida, Texas, and Illinois. Also, Billings is a horrible city.

The Contenders

11 Kansas City International Airport

I live there and I hate it. It's convenient but it's outdated and limited food option

Outdated facility. Very limited food options and other services.

Horrible food opportunities. Hard to find power outlets.

Outdated... Stuck after going through security!

12 Norfolk International Airport

Number 13? This is the worst airport EVER! Racist people, limited stores, cancelled flights, and rude people!

Worst airport and they do not have any non stop flights to anywhere on the west coast

It simply suck!

13 Miami International Airport

Horrible and confusing

The logo is so creepy

14 Cheyenne International Airport

This airport sucks a lot! Too less things to do, probably the smallest International Airport in the United States, and too many cowboys in Cheyenne along with Wyoming. Wyoming is the second state with the worst airports, after Montana. But anyway this airport ALSO sucks because there is nothing to do in it at all! And there are only 2 restrooms. If you need to use the bathroom, and both of the restrooms are crowded, I would recommend just waiting to get on the plane just to use the bathroom, or just go outside the airport and find a restroom. Probably one in a restaurant or a small store.

15 Logan International Airport

Terminals are too small for a large airport. Flights also get delayed regularly, and the corridors are too narrow.

16 Boise International Airport

Boise airport sucks because it is too small, only a few things to do, and this airport has the least airplanes. I recommend not going to Boise because it is to stupid, only a few things to do, and you have to wait for your airplane to get to Boise, and you would have to wait for about 4-5 hours. Speaking of 4-5 hours, do you want to know how long it took for my older sister (who's age was 17 when she went)? It took 6 HOURS for her to wait for her plane. But anyway this airport takes a long time too!

17 Great Falls International Airport

This airport is the third worst airport in Montana, and one of the worst airports in the Mountain states. This airport is way too small, just a couple things to do, and it is so boring. If you are going to go from Great Falls to Denver, I would just take the car instead, because the airport in Great Falls is so stupid. I can give you 5 reasons this airport sucks:

5. This airport is so boring.
4. This airport is too small.
3. There are only a few things to do in this airport.
2. This airport takes a while to wait in.

18 Eppley Airfield

Too small and expensive.

19 Dulles International Airport

A virtual maze. Takes forever to get to your gate. No help phones or assistance. Nightmare.

Good airport, nice people

20 San Diego International Airport
21 Baltimore Washington International Airport

Terrible traigdy

22 San Antonio International Airport

Best airport ever. Friendly and thorough TSA agents. Drop off and pickup traffic can be a little tricky, but airport is clean and well organized.

A medium-sized Airport with lots of fun things to do, I totally recommend this place

23 Orlando International Airport

Rude TSA agents that are demanding, controlling, rushing you, and inconsiderate to name just a few of their bad qualities. ABM Parking Services has rude cashiers on A and B sides that in turn have even ruder and non-understanding clerks and supervisors (Kim Perez, Peggy Padro, unsmiling Melvis Rodriguez, shouting Nellie Lopez, lesbian Rosa Roque and Jessica Milam are just some). As a business traveler I park weekly and have encountered these employees as some of the noncustomer friendly workers! If I had to pay for parking myself I wouldn't park at this airport. If you're parking less than 5 hrs and lose your ticket you'll end up paying the daily $17 rate. This airport will nickel and dime you. I have complained on these workers but unfortunately they are still there. Blame GOAA!

Worst possible security I have ever seen... it’s like herding cattle and when your traveling with kids it’s even worse!

24 San Francisco International Airport

There great!

25 LaGuardia Airport

A grim place of despair. Moody staff, overzealous security and the terminal is falling apart. God forbid your flight is delayed.

26 Akron-Canton Airport
27 Ft. Lauderdale–Hollywood International Airport

Very crowded for such a small airport.
Common delays.
Most restaurants are located after clearing the security checkpoints

Very poor treatment of passengers and processing times when traveling international.

Supposed to be a reliever airport to MIA, but it’s now just as bad.
TSA screening is too slow and most restaurants are located after clearing security.
Constant delays. The last two flights I took the delays were 2 and 5 hours respectively. Fortunately they were nonstop flights

28 Gerald R. Ford International Airport

The Grand Rapids, Michigan airport has a weird layout. They put the stores BEFORE the baggage check, so you can't really buy a snack before getting on the plane. - Turkeyasylum

29 Daniel K. Inouye (Honolulu) International Airport

Nastier than some of the others in mainland USA. Only LAX, LaGuardia and Newark Liberty are worse.

30 Fayetteville Regional Airport
31 Cleveland Hopkins Airport
32 Atlanta International Airport

WAY too busy, but cool airport DELTA for life! Emirates die die die.

33 Arcata / Eureka (CA) Airport

You have probably never heard of ACV. Lucky you. It's the most northern airport in California to have service from a major carrier (if you can apply that term to United Express). With frequent dense fog and heavy rain, flight delays and cancelations occur constantly. In addition,the small RJs that serve ACV get last priority when slowdowns occur at SFO or LAX, the only destinations. Flying to or from ACV, like playing craps, has no certain outcome. You might fly SFO to SFO (which is probably the third most common route) or end up in Medford (OR) or Redding (CA). If you arrive the same day you planned, that's considered to be on-time. Don't say that you haven't been warned now. ACV truly is the worst airport in the US.
