Flying the friendly skies
IAH named nation's best airport
If you've got travel plans this holiday weekend, you're lucky to be in Houston.
Although the thought of hitting the airport over the Thanksgiving holidays can make most of us break into a cold sweat, The Daily Beast named Houston's own IAH the number one airport in the country for on-time arrivals and departures, safety, accessibility, baggage handling, security waits and amenities.
Most impressively, IAH takes the cake when it comes to getting passengers in and out over Thanksgiving, ranking first (90 percent) in on-time holiday departures in the past three years.
And we've got icing for that cake:The New York Timesreports that Google is taking cues from Yahoo, eBay and Microsoft and will be providing free WiFi in the Houston airport through Jan. 15.
So hurry and get some holiday shopping done while you wait; it won't be for long.
