Improvements are Taking off at U.S. Airports

Some still believe more must be done

Among the litany of complaints about the sad state of U.S. airports, one particularly harsh take came from then-Vice President Joe Biden. “If I took you and blindfolded you and took you to LaGuardia Airport in New York, you’d think, ‘I must be in some third-world country,’” he said during a 2014 speech.

Biden might not repeat that line today.  LaGuardia has been undergoing major renovations, including the opening of a new concourse for Delta Airlines shuttle flights just two months ago. “Inside the concourse, which houses gates 92 to 98, it felt for once like LaGuardia was a clean and efficient modern airport,” Zach Wichter of The Points Guy wrote recently.

Improvements have been coming to other American airports as well, including in Orlando, Chicago, and Los Angeles. Restaurant options are getting better, and more recent facilities like the international airport in Indianapolis, built in 2008, have won awards for their design and ease of check-in.
