You'd be hard-pressed to find many people who actually enjoy the rush and chaos of navigating the airport while traveling, but some airports rate better than others if you're forced to wait at the gate with your newspaper and latte. The Points Guy took a look at the nation's busiest airports and ranked them based on amenities, timeliness, and accessibility. Congrats, Phoenix—and better luck next time, NYC region. Here, the five best and worst of the bunch:
