1. Aéroport de St. Jean: More of an airfield really.
2. Amsterdam Schiphol Airport: Agreed! The Dutch have AMS under control.
3. Calgary International Airport: Bland
4. Changi Airport: Can't argue, Changi run like clockwork.
5. Heathrow Airport: In a word... No.
6. John F. Kennedy International Airport: Depends on the terminal and time of day

I bet whoever wrote this has not been to all ten aiports. So it's really just a content quota piece. Not to mention the fact that they are comparing apples and oranges, Aéroport de St. Jean is an airfield really. Not really too sure how Heathrow made the list. Maybe they meant LHR without Terminal 1 and 3?

This is a disgrace! I would like to know how many people they interviewed -- 1,004 usually. Heathrow is at the bottom of my list. JFK, depending on the terminal, but, but to mention of all the tax-free goodies should only apply to those living outside the EU. I would rate Copenhagen with it's shopping mall-sized terminal as No. 1, where you can get all of those mani-pedi-cures.

Yet, of course you have to realize that this is not an objective survey. Sherman's, from where this all originated, is a travel agency and they are pushing their destinations and trying to cash in on them.

Actually you need to read the rationale for most of the picks - e.g.. JFK because of Jet Blue - a relatively minor player in the scheme of the overall environment, LAX because of high celebrity sighting potential, etc.. Some are accidentally correct, AMS, SYD, etc.. Note the current Low reader evaluation of this article at the end of the 2nd page.

wow, that's pretty funny.... likewise, JFK.

there seems to be little rhyme or reason to their lists.

DTW's airport isn't bad, MSP is nice, clean, and modern.

If LAX and JFK are there, I have a hard time imagining ORD not being.

Unbelievable. Much, much more research needed. Its laughable that LHR and LAX would be included in any Top 10 list.

What the article neglects to mention is that many of the amenities available to AMS depend on destination, i.e. Schengen departures dont have use of the transit hotel or other services located beyond passport control).

MSNBC must be smoking some serious stuff.....we can all shoot enough holes in their list. And basing their rankings on one small facet of that airport (ie JFK, LAX) is in no way indicative of the airport as a whole.

Sounds more like Terminal 4 than any other to me. If you try to fit Terminal 2 in there it should read "your head hitting the ceiling [in what used to be a parking lot], carpets so torn that people stumble upon them, outdated infrastructures, etc...

Clearly, whoever did this survey was on some very powerful drugs. No way should LAX, JFK or LHR, St Jean be in the top 10.

I cannot believe YYC made the list. As Yowza said, it is bland. Not bad, but not thrilling.

JFK? I mean it's pretty good and much better than it was in the 90's (and it really depends on the terminal). But I wouldn't say top ten. My personal top ten, yeah probably. But not "world top ten." You got Singapore, Amsterdam, Hong Kong, and several others that I think would top JFK.

LAX? Are you kidding me?

What I love is their praise for B6 at JFK, as if they invented the on-line bag drop counter. The writer is a B6 fan, and that's why JFK gets on the list???

Can't agree with that list. Not the best, but certainly many are not the worst.

As for nice airports, I'd have to add CVG to the list (at least Terminal 3). I hadn't been there in a while, and while it was nice before, seems as if they made it even nicer! If only Concourses A and B were dedicated to a better airline than Delta...

I think the fact that they mentioned "celebrity sightings" is proof enough that whoever wrote the article has their priorities screwed up when rating airports. I don't go to an airport to see a "celebrity". I go there to catch a plane. The least amount of time I spend in an airport, the better, far as I am concerned. As long as the security personnel are competent, the bathrooms are clean, and I can get a decent cup of coffee somewhere, color me happy.

I am surprised that KIX isn't on that list. That is a neat facility. Not that I have seen it in person or anything, but I have seen it on the Discovery and TLC channels... At least DTW is mentioned regarding the NW facility. I would throw in PIT and DEN for that matter for having modern and navigable facilities, 100+ shops, eateries and amenities, etc. PIT is always near the top of the list of US Airports for this, despite having a scaled back US operation, but we won't go there  Smile

Worst airports, add MEM to that list. From what I have seen of that airport through various pics and text regarding the facility, it makes PHL look like the Sydney Opera House!

LAX is a joke, the only good thing about it is the vast amount of planes there are to see. But it is good for people viewing. Last week I was there the Basketball player Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. But that was just after I spent an hour in a line for booking at United. There were about 20 people in front of us, and only about 2 of them were helped during that hour. Needless to say, I gave up on flying back to DEN. Speaking of DEN, it should be on the list unless if you look at it this week.

Except if it's the Top 10 Worst Airports List.

I'm happy that JFK made the list and all, but let's be serious here - while T6 is excellent, T2/3 and T8 easily make up for it. That's two of the three main carriers at the airport operating out of terminals that are awful on a good day.

LHR and LAX are two of the worst airports there are, and putting St. Jean and Keflavik on the list just because they serve nice places is pure idiocy.
