Worst airports in the world

Oh, the indignities of air travel: crammed in small containers, can’t move, subjected to foul smells, elbow-to-elbow humanity, accumulations of trash, unplanned delays — and that’s just in the airports. To find the worst offenders, we compared the top airports worldwide, ranked by passenger numbers, and consulted an ad hoc panel of frequent world travelers — the sort who spend as much time in airports as at home — and statistical compilations that range from weather data to traveler surveys.

Well It's not true what MSN is saying here about Charles de Goule airmport I was there this May 2012 catching a flight to China and the airmport was very nice, not crouded at all, employees cleaning here and there and I didn't see not even 1 homeless like you are saying here. Some people pretend the  airport needs to bee like their own homes and tey also complain about cleaning but ask them how many days a week they clean their own houses. China airport was a bit far from the city but overall was good not crowdy. I want to see now the oposit "BEST AIRPORTS IN THE WORLD"

I have been to many of these airports.  No disagreement with these assessments at all.  Especially Heathrow and Charles DeGaul.  Avoid at all costs these two airports if at all possible.
