Through a combination of those three factors — on-time arrivals, the wait time between leaving the gate and taking off, and the wait time from landing to parking at the gate — Milecards.com has created a cumulative misery score that ranks the country's top 50 airports from most to least miserable (probably important that no airport is not miserable, but is the least miserable instead).
And the most miserable airport is... Newark Liberty International.
Coming in tied for second were LaGuardia, JFK, and O'Hare. Mineta San Jose International and Portland International rank as the nation's least miserable hubs.
It's good information to have — and it's broken down further in the infographic below — but not many people are planning their trips based on what airport is the easiest to travel to, so it might not change a whole lot for most travelers. However, if you are in the market for a vacation with a not-very-frustrating airport, Portland is beautiful this time of year.
