Just in time for the American currency version of Thanksgiving, our friends north of the border have chimed in with their vote for worst U.S. airports. With 17.5% of the online tally, LAX came in second behind Chicago’s O’Hare.
In order, the negative flashpoints were: overcrowding (28.7%); bad service (17.9%); slow security (16%); run down airports (13.9%); other (11%); lack of good places to eat or drink (5.9%); uncomfortable seats in lounges (4.1%); and a lack of entertainment amenities (2.0%).
We’re guessing that in the “Other” category for LAX, a few Canadians may have been disappointed by the lack of celebrity sightings upon their U.S. arrival. Perhaps the city’s airport officials should consider sprinkling a celebrity impersonator or two into the baggage claim and porter employee ranks. Couldn’t hurt.
