Try not to act surprised, but we have to tell you something Tim Conway Jr. has been saying for years.
LAX is one of the worst airports in the world according to Fodor’s inaugural Travel Awards.
No, you read that right.
Not the just the worst airport in California, or even the worst airport in the country, but the worst airport in the WORLD.
Yes, we know that LAX is also one of the busiest airports in the world, but that's not the problem!! It's their traffic!! You know that's true. Dropping someone off or even picking someone up at LAX is sometimes a two-hour trip to go just four miles. It's all due to the "improbably stupid design of its catastrophic horseshoe motor-loop."
Plus, they ALWAYS have a never-ending amount on construction going on there.
“One day the construction will end. And, one day, there will be a people-mover that will connect the yet-to-be-open Crenshaw Metro Line to the airport,” Fodor's editors said in their press release, “But until then, LAX has earned a spot at the top of our Worst Airports list – and we’re loathing it.”
Okay, so what are Angelenos to do when they need to fly out of the city?
Well, we also have some great news for you.
Hollywood-Burbank – formerly known as Bob Hope Airport – is named the BEST airport in the world.
I mean who would've thought that Southern California be home to BOTH the best and worst in the world.
So what makes Burbank's airport so different from LAX?
Its accessibility and mellow hassle-free experience. It includes affordable parking, has easy shuttle access, the Metrolink Station is walking distance. As well, its actually closer in distance to downtown Los Angeles, Hollywood, and other popular attractions.
“Burbank is an airport free of most of the hassles that take the fun out of travel plans,” Fodor’s managing editor Rachael Levitt said in a news release. “It’s an agreeable airport in a perfect location, which is why it’s at the top of our list of airports to love.”
So, next time you're picking a flight and picking between LAX and Burbank. Do yourself a favor and pick Burbank. Even if its an extra few bucks, in the long run it's worth it.
