  1. I don’t think JFK belongs in the bottom, it’s definitely better then LGA. Now that JFK has the airtrain it’s easy to move to different terminals. I think JFK is better then Providence and Raleigh. If you have ever been to Indy it’s beautiful but don’t try to buy anything, they rake you across the coals there. CLT is another nice airport that should be on the best airports.
