Five airports in the United States rank in the top 10 worst airports, in third, fourth, sixth, eighth and night place respectively. None of these airports have an overall business class score over 3 out of 10.
The airport that has the lowest overall business class score is Ninoy Aquino International Airport, with a score of 0.88 out of 10. Being the main gateway to the Philippines, Manila’s airport was the worst scoring for three different categories: its number of destinations, on-time performance, and rating from Skytrax.
In second place is Gatwick Airport, in the UK, with an average score of 1.82 out of 10. While London’s Heathrow ranks amongst the best airports for business class travel, the opposite is true for Gatwick. As well as a score of just 3 out of 5 from Skytrax, Gatwick was among the worst airports when it came to the on-time performance of its flights, with just 67.8% being deemed to be on-time.
Completing the three worst-rated airports is Newark Liberty International Airport, New Jersey, with an overall score of 2.03 out of 10. Newark scored fairly poorly across the board, with a 3 out of 5 rating from Skytrax, as well as when it comes to delays, with just 69.4% of flights from Newark being on time.
