Where is the St. Louis Airport on the List of Best Airports?
The Wall Street Journal has published its year-end Airport rankings, and you may be shocked (like we were) to see where the St. Louis Airport ends up on their list.
According to the Wall Street Journal's Best and Worst Airports of 2022 ranking the St, Louis Airport ranks as the 15th best Midsized US Airport. On the site they say...
"This year’s airport report card ranks the 50 largest U.S. airports on 19 factors from on-time performance and security waits to J.D. Power customer-satisfaction score and ticket prices. Reliability matters most to passengers and carries the most weight in our rankings."
The St. Louis Airport ranks right above the Kansas City Airport, which comes in 16th on the list of midsized airports, and is shockingly behind airports like the Oakland airport, and the Pittsburgh airport.
Some of the other airports that make the ranking you may use if you live here in the Tri-States are Midway airport in Chicago, which comes in as the 20th best-midsized airport. And of course, O'hare International Airport in Chicago, which comes in as the 14th best large airport. To see the full rankings for yourself click here!
I will say I'm afraid I have to disagree with a lot of these rankings, first off, the St. Louis airport is a great midsized airport. I have traveled out of there a couple of times and I have always had fast, easy, and reliable service. The lines in security have never been long, and there are plenty of decent food and drink options while you wait. I will add that it is CRAZY that O'Hare is that low on the list, O'Hare is terrific for a major airport.
