After being crowned worst three years in a row, Manila’s Ninoy Aquino International Airport has this year lost its place at the bottom of the heap to Pakistan’s Islamabad Benazir Bhutto International.
It’s now climbed to the heady position of fourth worst. Despite the website’s name, airports weren’t just rated according to how easy it is to catch some shut-eye.
Readers were asked to judge facilities in four categories: comfort, conveniences, cleanliness and customer service.
Airport officials didn’t reply to the requests for a comment, but survey respondents were less than complimentary.
“This airport is [like] a central prison,” said one who complained of touts and aggressive taxi drivers.
The survey ranked Saudi Arabia’s busiest airport, Jeddah’s King Abdulaziz International as second worst, followed by Nepal’s Kathmandu Tribhuvan International.
