Don't get stuck at these airports during bad weather

If you are stranded by bad weather, you don’t want to be stuck in Washington's Dulles International, New York's LaGuardia, Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International, Philadelphia International or Boston's Logan International airports.

Those were the five airports rated as the worst in which to be stranded, according to a survey of more than 44,000 people by the travel-dating website MissTravel.com.

The respondents based the ranking on cleanliness and access to free wireless Internet, among other factors.

Jennifer Gwynn, a spokeswoman for MissTravel, said she remembers being stuck in an airport where she spotted rats near a baggage carousel. “That didn’t make me feel like I could sleep on the floor,” she said.

The biggest concern for stranded fliers is access to free Wi-Fi, she said. “You don’t want to be stuck somewhere and you can’t do anything on your smartphone.”
