MANILA, Philippines - A United States financial media company has ranked the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) eighth among the 10 Worst Airports in the World, citing overcapacity issues in terminals 1 and 3.

According to the Wall St. Cheat Sheet posted online yesterday, the 10 worst airports are known for their “smelly bathrooms, long lines and rude staff.”

NAIA’s terminals 1 and 3 were described as “particularly crammed.”

The report also quoted a CNN Travel article saying that NAIA terminals were “beleaguered by ground crew strikes, unkempt conditions, soup kitchen-style lines that feed into more lines and an overall sense of futility, NAIA brings the term ‘Stuck in the 1970s’ to a new level.”

The Sao Paulo-Guarulhos International Airport in Brazil, the Chicago Midway International Airport and the John F. Kennedy International Airport were listed as the top three worst airports in that order.

Other airports listed were N’Djamena International in Africa (4th), Paris Beauvais Tille (5th), London Heathrow (6th), LaGuardia in New York City (7th), Jomo Kenyatta International in Kenya (9th) and Tribhuvan International in Nepal (10th).
