Miami International Voted One of the Worst Airports in the World

In a poll of frequent international travelers, Miami International Airport has been named one of the worst in the world.

Priority Pass, a company specializing in fancy airport lounge access, asked 14,500 of its members, who combined take about 250,000 flights a year, to rank their favorite and least favorite airports, and MIA came in as the fifth worst.

London's Heathrow came out in the bottom, with Charles de Gaulle in Paris, LAX in Los Angeles, and Frankfurt International filling in the bottom five.

But American travelers don't seem to hate MIA with the same passion: They put Chicago O'Hare, LAX, New York's JFK, and Atlanta in their bottom four.

Apparently, if you want a good airport experience, you might have to fly halfway around the world. Singapore's Changi, Hong Kong's Chek Lap Kok, and Amsterdam's Schiphol were awarded top spots.
