Worst airports

What's the worst airport you've ever been to? Making this thread so I can know what shitholes to avoid. Anyways, for me it's Glasgow.
>2 hour long immigration line as it was staffed by literally just two people
>no free WiFi (have to pay)
>no water fountains
I'm surprised they didn't charge me to use the bathrooms. This was like 7 years ago to be fair but after that experience I refused to ever go back.

    Panama. I think I've flown in/out of there at least 10 times. Its never had working air conditioning and the terminals are like a mile apart.

    Runner up is YYZ just because they gave jeets jobs and you can immediately tell that power went right to their little brown heads just because they can boss around white people now. Frick Toronto.

      What I dislike about canadian airports are that customs agents are straight up rude to you and the police will single out people to harass and check your bag thinking youre illegally transiting money. The airport itself is clean, spacious and not atrociously overpriced (relatively, remember that this is still Canada so every thing is already overpriced).
      The average canadian aairport is a 6/10. Passable.
      The country however is a 3/10. Boring, cold, unfriendly, expensive, shit weather, etc. Would never go back.

        Thats weird because the cramped design was one of my biggest complaints. Like everything else in southern onterrible, its like the architects responsible for designing the damn thing figure out what the acceptable standard for people/square metre would be anywhere else on earth, then divide by two

        It was like they put in seats for maybe 40% of the people expected to be in the terminal when 80% would be the normal target.

        The barstool design to the tables is moronic when most people in the building are going to be carrying at least one piece of large, heavy luggage, and the ipads bolted onto the table are like some sort of relic from 2009. Literally everyone there has a fricking screen in their pocket anyways

        The food wasnt insanely expensive, but a hamburger was still 20$ on its own, and the selection of food was crap.

        I made a personal goal after that of making a point to never fly either of air canada or through pearson ever again

        Toronti Airport is probably one of the worst in the world. Their COVID bullshit was extremely laughable. Some masked homosexual directing people where to go, when they asked him a question he flat out just said "MOVE!". It was Canada in a nutshell. I showed up 4 hours early for my flight and almost missed it.

          I think what throws people off about Canada is they have a reputation(or they did at least) as being a friendly country/people, and it looks from the outside to be very well run and clean. So it’s quite the shock when you run into their airports, and realize they are one of the most brutal countries to actually gain access to.

        Same experience crossing the border in Saskatchewan. For some reason they had a bug up their ass about me bringing guns over the border and just would not let it go. I was starting to worry they were going to plant shit on me.

        >“No”

        >“YES”
        >“Once you come through there’s nothing I can do to help you. You’re sure there’s no guns in the car?”

        After that they let me through and nothing happened, but I would have bet my soul I was getting my car disassembled at inspection.

        I have had nothing but problems transitioning through Frankfurt -- it may be fine as a destination, I don't know. But avoid it if you can.

        Dishonorable mention to Kuwait, which doubles as a shopping mall in the pre-security area, so often has unnecessary traffic jams. It is also over-crowded and I've run into surly security and customs staff several times.

      Not sure how you had a bad time at Haneda. Less weeb trash. Friendlier customs agents (esp if you’re a dark skinned Indian). I always got hiccups entering through NRT. Also another anon mentioned it but it is relatively closer to tokyo so for mainstream tourists it might be a bit more convenient. And yes the red light district prostitutes gave the best BJs of my life. And they’re hot. Plus the weak yen means my shitty USD can still be superior. Can’t get any better than that mate

      >It has to be Istanbul Sabiha. Avery narrow airport, too small for all the flights it takes, with no free wifi. Hell

      Don’t know how recently you were in SAW, but I was just there a few weeks ago; I think they have free WiFi now, at least theoretically, but there was a glitchy login process (using some code supposedly found on boarding passes?) that I didn’t actually succeed in getting to work.

      I didn’t exactly hate it as an airport, for the most part (although the extra security screening just to get into the building was one more long, slow line than I would have preferred), but I give it extra shit points for having the most hilariously overpriced airside food and drink options I have ever seen at any airport literally anywhere. Pic related (not sure how clear it is, but that is a 750 mL bottle of mineral water on sale for an incomprehensible THIRTEEN EURO; I also had the choice of a cup of Turkish coffee for roughly €8, which must be ten times the street-corner price). It’s also annoyingly far from the city center—takes at least an hour in a cab, could be twice that or more with traffic.

      But the single-worst airport I have personally experienced was Tribhuvan Intl, Kathmandu. Absurdly invasive security—I was frisked very enthusiastically just before getting on a shuttle bus to my plane, and then again, not much more than one minute later, at the bottom of the jetway; this was after at least two more ordinary scans and x-rays. Plus basically nothing works. Feels mean-spirited to complain in such a poor country, but the airport experiences electrical blackouts all the time that kill the whole place. No functioning airside ATMs. No climate control or fans. Nearly all of the food and drink vendors out of action. I assume essential functions like security and air traffic control must have generators or massive inverters, but it doesn’t make it any nicer to sit in the dark.

          I’ll bear it in mind, for sure, particularly if it’s that cheap. But I’ve never had a layover there; I’ve only used it when specifically heading into or out of Istanbul on cheap tickets. And there as everywhere I prefer to spend as little time in the airport as possible. I mostly just thought the inflated prices were hilarious when compared to vanishingly low street prices, while filling a water bottle from a tap.

    FRA (Frankfurt) Every single time it's a new maze of kilometer long corridors and they keep on adding more confusing shit to it.

    Just what is this even?
    BSL (Basel) Is this even a airport? I mean I can get on a plane there but holy frick what about some shops or at least a bar or more than 4 chairs air side would be a good addition

      LOL. BSL is my local airport, and while your description is pretty accurate, I actually love how tiny it is. Security takes thirty seconds, and passport control is fast for flights out of Schengen. You can show up really late and not have to worry about missing your flight.

      But it is basically just a series of glass holding pens for EasyJet cheapskates rather than a recognizable full-service international airport, regardless of the fact that it’s the international terminal serving three small cities across three countries.

      The lounge is cute, though, and I think you can buy your way in for CHF40, which is the cost of about two drinks in Switzerland.

          Griezi wohl!

          It's just my observation. I'm from Zurich and working in Basel so from time to time flying out from BSL and I thought with Easyjet turning it into a hub, a couple of interconti connections and so many super cheap connections to large hubs (FRA, MUC, LHR, AMS, CDG) they would finally upgrade the airport a bit and maybe attract other airlines to use it as a side hub as the location is 9.5/10.
          You're right it's small fast to get trough and functional airport but it's almost as good connected as BER yet feels like a small regional airport for puddle jumpers still snoozing away.

          Nothing you said was inaccurate or offensive—it’s an absurdly rustic little airport, now overcrowded, despite being very well connected.

          And you’re especially right that there aren’t enough airside seats—at busy times, even if check-in and security took mere moments compared to other airports, it’s a sea of low-budget family travelers standing around and getting in one another’s way. I choose to blame the French.

          I use BSL for my international point of departure as often as I can, because it’s less than fifteen minutes from my house, but we often just give in and head out of ZRH, which is nearly as fast to get through (at least as far as security is concerned; having to take that silly little Heidi train between terminals probably adds half an hour to total travel time) but undeniably slicker and better equipped.

    Houston Hobby though it's probably not the world's worst, it has been the worst for me. Never fly routes that have a layover there. I was stuck there when severe weather (which happens all the time in Texas) delayed my connection. It was 90% nonwhite, there was nowhere quiet to sit (on count of the above), no wifi, and the only food choices were garbage tier fast food the only exception being Subway which had an hour long line. As an aside, don't ever fly from a southern city to Vegas. Plane was full of fat black women all of whom would scream and one of whom would faint when we hit turbulence. Because of this the airline called a waaambulance to check her out when we landed which delayed us even further. I should have flown on Frontier which would have been a worse airline but it would have routed me through Denver and I could have avoided this nonsense.

    By the metric of what was available, CDB (Cold Bay) was the worst airport I have been to. It has no services and was just a room with some chairs in it.

    By the metric of having repeated bad experiences, its SEA (Seatac), bags are consistently late, airport security is awfully slow, and Alaska Airlines loves to change gates for my flights, causing me to run all over the airport.

    The most comfy airport I have been to is DUT (Unalaska). It has alright restaurant, its right on the ocean, and it reminds me of airports before 9/11.

        I second LAX. It is a shithole. A concrete brutalist pile of restricted prisonlike blocks that has not been updated since the 1960s staffed by people more interested in picking their nose and being fat than actually transferring luggage properly. Avoid at all costs.

    I wonder how many people have an accurate view on which airports are really the worst. In that, there’s what, thousands of airports? How many of them have any one person even been to to compare. I’ve been on hundreds of flights, a dozen countries. Dozens of states. But still my favorite airport is probably pdx, least is Heathrow(just because while it’s relatively nice it’s a shitshow so often). But I can tell just from this thread there’s way worse I haven’t been to. How many people on earth have been to enough airports to accurately rate them? And name let’s say the top 5 worst?

      You can infer a lot through transitive properties.
      If multiple people say that CDG is worse than AMS and some others that FRA is slightly better than AMS; then you can be pretty sure that FRA is better than CDG even without a direct comparison.

      For Burgers and Holiday Makers alike, do yourself a favor, avoid MCO and go to either SFB or MLB instead. MLB is the best of the three, but it is the furthest.

      For Brits, that would mean booking on TUI. (Not certain if TUI does UK stopovers for holidays in Florida for other Europeans).

      Americans will need to book American, Delta, Sun Country, Allegiant or Avelo.

      SFB has services from Allegiant and Flair for Canucks looking to visit.

        The old one or the new one? The old circular terminals were built when you didn't go through any security to get to your plane. It was obsolete shortly after it opened. They have a new terminal that opened in the last few years to replace the old ones.

    Assuming you mean major airports (i.e. not 3rd world shithole airports with a dirt runway and no AC/shops) it's gotta be CDG. Just a miserable, horrible place.

      You're not alone. I would have saved thousands of dollars if I had flown via CDG the past decade. But I just don't hate myself enough to go via CDG again. I don't remember what was the last drop, it was all sorts of bad every time I had to go there.

      Worst: LAX. Runner up Toronto, the fricking monkeys on the ramp marshalled the plane into the wrong spot and took 40 minutes to grab a tug to reposition the plane.

      Best: DTW, never had a problem there

      Hah. CDG is a mess, all right.

      A few years ago that was our first connection into Europe, and we had to catch a second flight into Rome. The terminal was ridiculously crowded, no one knew how to line up for anything (not that there was any room to form a line), and the employees didn't give a good goddamn whether they ever got you on your flight.

    Some i remember from past trips
    >RIX (Riga)
    The interior is somewhat decent, not a lot to do, but my god, the security line is absurdly slow (It was 20 minutes, there were about 15 persons in front of me), the airport feels really old (At least 70/80's) and it generally sucks, normally i'd pass it as just a mid airport due to being ex-soviet but Tallin airport, not being a main hub for an airline and also ex-soviet, is at least ten times better
    >Venice
    Small airport, public transport sucks (Although the public boat ride is decent, i consider it to be incredibly overpriced), nothing to do or eat in it, the layout is one of the worst i've ever seen (It has like three floors with gates)
    >Malpensa airport
    First airport that i've seen hobos roaming the public area trying to scam people and being violent, police does nothing
    >Meh airports
    >Luxembourg airport
    Small, not enough restaurants (At least in the european terminal, idk if there's more in the other terminal) but otherwise decent
    >CDG
    As long as you don't go to the main terminal (The AF once) and go very early (~5/6 am), it's not that bad, the AF terminal is overcrowded and it sucks and i regret going there even as a layover (KLM cucked us due to a flight route being cancelled, had to go with AF)
    >Malta
    The public area is good, the terminal is basically a duty-free shop with 4 gates, a single delayed flight basically cripples the entire airport for the day
    >Actually good airports
    >Helsinki
    I once saw a Malasyan fighting with an Estonian in birdapp and he said "The baltics are the most irrelevant place in the world and would be inhabitated by actual savages have the soviet union not trascended them into sapience", and the Helsinki airport is proof of that, best airport, no contest
    >Oporto
    Nice regional airport, food is somewhat overpriced but not so much

    Quite fast to move between terminals, i was able to catch a flight in another terminal that was closing doors fifteen minutes after going through security

        Yeah, also a little confused by this. Is your point that Helsinki is a good airport, in contrast to nearby ex-Soviet airports in the Baltics, like in Estonia, which are worse?

        Most of what is now Finland was never really Soviet. The USSR made an honest effort to envelop in the Finns in their entirety, occasionally against great resistance, but the CCCP settled for just keeping the best-integrated, historically Russian-Empire-owned chunks of Karelia (which they’d already absorbed by the 18th century), in the end.

        >The Republic of Karelia, now a constituent of the Russian Federation, formerly known as the Karelian Autonomous Soviet Socialist Republic (KASSR), is actually a pretty nice place, especially by Russian standards, but it hasn’t been majority-Finnish for centuries at this point.

        >And it’s like nine hours from Helsinki.

        Anyway, it’s been an extremely long time since I flew through Helsinki, but my experiences there were also positive.

    MEXICO CITY BY FAR

    Benito Juarez is a complete mess. If you have a transfer there you HAVE to tell the police or you can easily be trapped there for hours. Even working at full capacity they only have like 5 immigration tills, it's ridiculous. Every single time I've been there I've been at risk of missing my flight. The WiFi never works.

    Second place LAX, no explanation needed

    Third: Shanghai. A haunted mansion with 1% occupancy. Getting super censored WiFi is an adventure on itself

    Bonus track: I've been in Changi over 5 times and I still don't get the hype about it. Completely average for me

      I second this anon. Mexico City Benito Juarez is a shithole mess. It's old as shit and has super low ceilings, very crowded, dirty and has two separate terminals opposite the airport from each other with no train or underground walkway connecting them. You literally have to pay $2 to board a bus, wait several minutes till the driver feels like taking off, then make your way through crazy mexico city traffic to the other terminal. Fricking bulldoze it and start over.

      Second place is probably Heathrow. I don't know what possessed the Bongistanis to expand the airport massively over the last several decades by adding new bigger terminals but not add any runways. Just TWO runways for one of the busiest airports in the world. You're 100% guaranteed to spend at least an hour either waiting on the tarmac to take off or waiting for an open gate after you land. Plan your layover accordingly. It's also crowded as frick everywhere.

      Heathrow is in my top 3 worst airports.

      Immigration is always backed up by literally THOUSANDS of migrants who's visas can't be quickly or sensibly cleared, everyone denied entry claims asylum just to avoid being put on a return ticket.
      Staff are incredibly rude, insulting, threatening, as if they're trained and instructed to push people's buttons as some kind of shit test. Yes they're all migrants themselves.
      Lacks even basic amenities, arrivals is total chaos, there's two fricking levels and so terminal changes are a nightmare.

      I'd fly into Heathrow if I had to, but would basically refuse to transit or fly out of there

    By my reckoning the worst airports are all in Western countries. Third world airports are never great, but being small and valuing tourists they're only ever so bad.

    Is there such thing as an international airport with reasonably priced food? Just as a frame of reference, many of them have very well-known fast food chains, but their prices are markedly higher than their regular standalone & mall food court counterparts.
    Even in a third-world low-cost country like Sri Lanka, a Burger King meal can cost $16 USD (no, I didn't actually buy it, I just distinctly remember the price which was actually posted on the menu in USD instead of LKR).
    I understand that the prices are higher because the restaurants have higher rent costs and a desperate enough tourist will pay their absurd prices, but are there any airports that actually go against the grain and allow their restaurants to charge more reasonable prices?

        Airport food on sale in Taipei is pretty inflated compared to street prices, as I recall, but still not very expensive. Maybe it was the same deal at Incheon? The only thing I remember about food there is that what was on offer in the biz lounge wasn’t very good; I vaguely recall people eating noodles in one of the (paid) restaurants that looked better than whatever I ended up picking at. But airside shop prices seemed OK.

        And I don’t think I bought anything to eat at BKK last time I was there (I was also in a lounge then, and ate some “free” sushi IIRC), but prices I noticed seemed OK.

    If transiting, you and thousands of other people have to line up for up two hours to go through passport control and go through the full security check. The staff are buttholes and the air quality inside an air conditioned building is dogshit. Every time I had this terrible tickly cough in my throat. It's all I have seen of China and I have resolved to never ever see that country again.

    Worst Airport without a doubt is Frankfurt(FRA).
    Even though you have a connecting flight through there (since no one actually wants to go to Frankfurt), you have to exit the airport and reenter. This takes at least 3-4 hours of you're lucky. Flights halls wait for you but of course never tell you that.
    I had a two hour layover I thought would be enough but it wasn't. They had a "pay $300/yr for fast lane!" open, and literally one security lane for everyone else. At the time I was trying to get through, no shit 3000 other people were too. It's like they purposefully make you wait and miss your flight so you buy their shit "fast lane" program. It should be illegal but its not. I will never fly through Frankfurt again, ever.
    I stood in line checking my watch, seeing the line never move. The time for my flight comes and goes. I go to the front counter to see what I can do and they said "oh they delayed your flight, get back in line". Without a single notification from the flight, I told them to frick off and got on an ICE train to where I needed to go.

      next time use your brain and book flights so you don’t have to change terminals

      non-schengen and schengen flights are usually in different terminals on big euro airports and that’s not necessarily a FRA thing (more like regulation, similarly how you have international/domestic in the US)

      FRA sucks for multiple other reasons tho.

            When is the last time you were in Paris? Were you there 10 or 20 years ago?

            NTA, but I have been going to Paris more or less regularly ever since my childhood in the 90s. The last time I was there was about two weeks ago.
            The difference between my first memories of the place and how it looks today is pretty steep. Paris was always not worth the hype, not because of /misc/Black person memes, but because people there were always rude, arrogant pricks. That said, the difference in demographics in those last twenty years is massive, with all its related ills included. At this point, Parisiens are still rude, arrogant pricks, but nowadays, you also have half of the third world there. I am not saying these are all bad people (the last time I got into trouble there, I got helped by a tea store owner from Iraq), but to say that Paris is the same as it was twenty years ago is simply factually wrong. Before you had some immigrants there (and a lot of them brutalized by the French into more or less integrating, like the Algerians), absolutely, but the amounts are simply incomparable. You can easily ride a subway and be one of the few Europeans in the fully packed train.

    Any airport that requires you to ride a bus between terminals is automatically relegated to B tier at best. I remember being in Haneda and nearly missing my connecting flight because some dumb short zoomer b***h was refusing to move into the middle/back of the bus, thus requiring everyone else to slowly trickle in around her to get on. She would’ve probably stood there and made boarding the bus take 20 minutes if I didn’t tell her to get the frick out of the way.
