Phoenix Sky Harbor named best large U.S. airport for 2019

The Wall Street Journal just released it’s list of the best and worst U.S. airports for 2019, with Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport receiving the number 1 spot for large airports.

The Wall Street Journal used 15 metrics to determine the rankings, which included operations, dining options, and on-time departures and arrivals.

Rounding out the top 5 are Denver (DEN), Fort Lauderdale (FLL), Detroit (DTW), and Orlando (MCO).

The top 5 worst large U.S. airports, ranked in descending order, are Chicago O’Hare (ORD), Miami (MIA), Philadelphia (PHL), New York (JFK), and Newark (EWR). Adding insult to injury for NYC-based travelers, New York LaGuardia (LGA) was ranked as the worst mid-sized airport in the U.S.
