November 14, 2018

NEW YORK, Nov. 14, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Wall Street Journal today released its inaugural ranking of the top 20 U.S. airports based on 15 key measures of performance, value and convenience.

The rankings were led by the Journal’s Middle Seat columnist Scott McCartney and are based on a number of different data points. The rankings were also informed by over 4,800 Wall Street Journal readers, who responded to a survey and provided feedback on airports across the country.

“This is one of the most comprehensive rankings of airports ever assembled,” McCartney said. “We focused on what matters most to travelers, from airfares to TSA wait times to food ratings; delays and cancellations to parking rates and long walks to gates.’’

Additionally, the rankings include a “how to” guide to various airports, including: navigation, where to eat, where to shop and how airports are improving the consumer experience.
