Using data from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the Bureau of Transportation Statistics (BTS), as well as cursory data on wait times in customs from U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), Asher & Lyric recently calculated which major U.S. international airports have the most delays. Congratulations New York City! We take the top three (read: worst three) spots!

After crunching all of the numbers, the absolute worst airport in America for delays, with a score of 588.99, is John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York, NY (JFK). New York City’s primary airport had low scores across the board, with fewer on-time flights, more cancellations, and lots of delays. Taxiing times are particularly bad at this airport (27.5 minutes on average for taxiing out and 20.07 minutes for taxiing in). Airports in and around New York City performed badly in general, with Newark (EWR) and LaGuardia (LGA) coming in second and third place among the worst airports in the U.S., respectively.
