Most airports are at best joyless econoboxes, at worst purgatorial warehouses of stalled lives. When assembling this list of airports to avoid, we scanned professional surveys and delay statistics and asked frequent travelers to come up with the airports where they'd least like to spend an extra hour.
Maybe you'll find your own least-favorite airport left off this list. What about Atlanta's immigration delays, Washington Dulles's absurd midfield terminal or Heathrow Terminal 5's baggage indigestion problems? There are too many frustrating airports in the world to include here - but let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
