Super storm Sandy, the monster hurricane put a freeze on the nation’s busiest airspace and stranded fliers across the country, especially in flood-stricken East Coast airports.
Unfortunately, many of those marooned travelers were stuck in airports with lousy reputations for food, comfort and entertainment.
In fact, the least desirable airports to be stuck in include Washington’s Dulles International, Hartfield-Jackson Atlanta International and New York’s John F. Kennedy International, according to a new online survey by Misstravel.com, a dating site for frequent travelers.
The website surveyed 5,000 of its members, most of whom spend lots of time sitting in airports.
Misstravel spokeswoman Jennifer Gwynn said the survey gave Dulles, JFK and Hartfield low marks for being crowded, with long lines for bathrooms and poor selections for food and entertainment.
In contrast, the survey concluded that the best airports to be stranded in were Dallas-Fort Worth International, Pittsburgh International, Austin-Bergstrom and General Mitchell International in Milwaukee.
