Traveling can be a headache, but some airports seem to be frustrating travelers more than others, including the airport nearest the “happiest place on Earth.”
A recent Forbes ranking found that John Wayne Airport in Orange County was the “angriest.” Forbes experts analyzed Twitter posts from travelers flying through major airports around the U.S.
Based on that Twitter activity, John Wayne Airport angers its travelers more than any other U.S. airport.
The analysis found that nearly two-thirds of the tweets aimed at John Wayne Airport could be characterized as “angry.” Complaints ranged from the airport being too noisy, issues with TSA staff and flight delays.
Coming in second and third place are Jacksonville International Airport in Jacksonville, Florida, and Eppley Airfield in Omaha, Nebraska. San Diego International Airport ranked seventh angriest, and Norman Y. Mineta San José International Airport came in at No. 10.
The best airports, according to travelers? Indianapolis, Seattle-Tacoma and Kansas City.
Important to note though, results of John Wayne Airport’s own passenger survey show a high overall airport approval rating. Nearly three-fourths of passengers who were surveyed in 2022 awarded the airport an overall score of 5 out of 5.
