The Airport Misery Index is a list that no airport would like to appear on. The upside for US airports like Newark (NY), Chicago O’Hare and Laguardia (NY) is that their ranking as the top 3 of worst airports in the country offers them a true challenge and lots of room for improvement.

The list was compiled by based on data collected from 84 American airports having at least 10,000 departures annually.

Numbers 4 and 5 on the list are Dallas/Fort Worth and Boston Logan.
