Airport Confidential

Get a glimpse of the pluses and minuses at some of the most well-traveled airports

These and other facts were recently published in Consumer Reports and The Wall Street Journal. In its October issue, Consumer Reports, the ultimate consumer watchdog publication, scrutinized everything from FAA safety data and air- port fares to the number of ATMs, pay phones and food outlets to come up with ratings of airports in major metropolitan cities.
