The World's BEST Airports: Where Delays Don't Seem So Bad (PHOTOS)

This week the British consulting firm Skytrax released its World Airport Awards, an annual ranking of the world's airports.

Now in its eleventh year, the study, which was funded strictly by the research group, surveyed air travelers in more than 38 criteria related to customer satisfaction (including check-in, arrivals and transfers) for more than 190 airports.
