In the battle over which are the best and worst U.S. airports, Atlanta has come out on top.
Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport is the best U.S. airport for travelers with a connecting flight, according to a recent Travel Leaders Group survey of its agents. Atlanta also came out on top for dining, amenities and business traveler services.
"Major airports have transformed considerably in the last decade to accommodate the shift in the amount of time travelers spend there," said Barry Liben, CEO of Travel Leaders Group, in a press statement. "More amenities have been added to appeal to travelers -- and in many cases, to occupy their time -- while they wait for their flights."
Chicago's O'Hare International Airport was rated as the worst domestic airport for travelers with connecting flights. At least business travelers can keep busy between transfers: O'Hare came in second in services for business travelers.
Traveling with a child? Given its role transporting families to Disney World and other theme parks, it's no surprise that Orlando International Airport ranked as the best domestic airport for people traveling with kids.
Minneapolis/St. Paul International Airport didn't do too badly, either. The biggest airport in rhe friendly state of Minnesota came in second place for dining, amenities and keeping kids busy. And the Charlotte (North Carolina) Douglas International Airport came in second for ease in connecting flights.
The survey of 930 Travel Leaders Group owners, managers and other travel experts in the United States was conducted in November and December.
