Bush Intercontinental among worst airports to make flight connections but has best lounge
Travelers through Houston's George Bush Intercontinental Airport may not have problem finding a willing make-out partner, but they might have difficulty making connections in flights.
In a recent analysis by CNBC.com, IAH tied with Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport for No. 8 among the "Worst Airports for Connections," based on U.S. Bureau of Transportation Statistics data of on-time arrivals for domestic flights in 2012 and the first quarter of 2013.
"Houston's efficiency has been dropping since 2009, and its average arrival delay has grown to more than an hour, making it less likely that you'll make that next flight," notes the article, pointing to a low ranking in arrival performance for 2012.
Newark Liberty International Airport ranked No. 1 on the naughty list, followed by Chicago O'Hare International and San Francisco International at No. 2.
Stuck at IAH until your next flight? Try to sneak into the United Club in Terminal E, which recently received the Priority Pass Lounge of the Year Award for North America. There travelers can wait out delays in VIP style with free WiFi, private workstations and ample electricity outlets, shower facilities, complimentary food and beverage service, free newspapers and magazines and more.
