New York's LaGuardia Named Most Frustrating American Airport


Long lines, crowded gate areas and delayed takeoffs. This airport is so frustrating -- it'll make you want to take the train!

The most frustrating airport in the US and Canada is New York's LaGuardia Airport!

LaGuardia was named America's most frustrating airport in a survey for businessweek.com by 3,000 frequent fliers.

The survey took into account the time it takes to get to the airport, security process, quality and cleanliness of the terminals, and the number of delayed flights. LGA scores poorly in all categories, and it's hard to get to because subways don't go near it, leaving mile-long taxi lines. In fact, it scored 91 out of 100 on the frustration level.

Right behind LaGuardia on the frustration scale, is New Jersey's Newark airport with a score of 90.1.

Vancouver International took the title of least frustrating airport with a score of 17.6, followed by Portland Oregon International scoring 18.4.
