Travel World: Best and Worst Airports

On my way to the airport, I always consider what could go wrong or what could I have forgotten? Do I have my passport? Do I have my tickets? Did I pack the right clothes? Did I confirm my hotel reservations? Am I comfortable with my travel itinerary? But, after reading this article, I realized I need to make sure the airport I'm departing from could potentially cause problems.

According to the U.S. Bureau of Transportation, the best airport for on-time arrivals is Cincinnati, with an 83%. The worst? Newark at 62%. Unfortunately, Atlanta is listed as one of the worst for one-time departures. Honestly, since I've moved here I haven't expected any problems. But, after learning this information, I'll make the necessary adjustments that could affect my trip, such as making sure connecting flights are not scheduled within an hour.

Do you see your airport on this list? If so, I suggest you take this information and plan your airport arrival time according.

I hope this helps!

Hi Terah
I tagged you for the Five Reasons Why I Blog meme. Check it out.

Join in if you like. I found it an interesting meme to reflect on :)

All the best

Terah, I love your blog's new look! By the way, I'm looking into booking a Caribbean cruise this spring. Have you written any articles or blog posts for first time cruise-goers? PS I just joined AvantGuild and I'm taking their class on copywriting this weekend.

I've missed this one. I've been so busy with assignments, I haven't had a chance to read my favorite blogs.

Thanks for the tag. I'll post it on my personal blog on tomorrow.

Thanks for the compliment on the new blog look. Admittedly, I really haven't the opportunity to enjoy it due to multiple assignments. I hope to start blogging regularly soon.

I haven't written anything on cruises. In fact, I wish I was more knowledgeable about them. But, I'll see what I can find.


P.S. I hope you enjoy your AvantGuild membership!
