<pre><pre>LAX embarrassed as the worst airport in the world because its neighbor Hollywood-Burbank is best branded in the US.

The first Fodor travel awards on Wednesday provided a story about two airports in a single city, following their announcement that the best and & # 39; the world's worst airports are just 30 kilometers apart.

The travel site awarded Hollywood-Burbank Airport the best the US has to offer, crediting the & # 39; shenanigan-free experience & # 39 ;, low parking costs and a multifaceted range of dining options justifying the place at the top.

But his neighbor to the south, LAX, received much less favorable reviews after it was mentioned and embarrassed as not only the worst in the country, but also in the rest of the world.

According to Fodor, casting the two Southern California airports in drastically contrasting standing lights was just a & # 39; unplanned coincidence & # 39 ;.

According to the site's editors, Hollywood-Burbank – once known as Bob Hope Airport – stood head and shoulders above the rest because of its & # 39; accessibility and soft, hassle-free experience & # 39 ;.

& # 39; It is not flashy or even state-of-the-art. We even love Hollywood Burbank Airport (BUR) for everything that it isn't, & wrote Fodor editor Rachel Levitt on the site.

& # 39; Burbank is an airport that is free of most of the hassle and takes pleasure in travel plans. It is a pleasant airport in a perfect location, which is why it is at the top of the list of airports that we love. & # 39;

But in dramatic contrast, LAX became a & # 39; colossal time suck & # 39; that offers the perfect nightmare for travelers looking for fast transit to the city, comparing the nine terminals with & # 39; Dante & # 39; s hell circles & # 39 ;.

& # 39; There are uglier airports and airports with fewer facilities; there are airports that are older and airports that are more expired; there are airports with rougher staff and airports with heavier passengers & # 39 ;, wrote editor of Fodor Jeremy Tarr.

# There are without doubt almost all measures, worse airports in this world. Except for one measure – an extremely crucial measure. In fact, behind safety it is almost certainly the most important measure: getting in and out. & # 39;

Fodor says that only physical boarding and alighting at the fourth busiest airport in the world can present the most difficult challenges, with many of the hold-ups resulting from a series of constructions currently in the run-up to the 2028 Olympic Games.

& # 39; Construction will end one day. And one day there will be a people mover who connects the yet to be opened Crenshaw metro line with the airport.

& # 39; But until then, LAX has earned a place at the top of our list of worst airports – and we hate it.

In a follow-up statement to DailyMail.com, Tarr reiterated that LAX in the oinion of both him and his staff is the & # 39; worst airport to travel through & # 39 ;.

& # 39; While LAX has always been known for its traffic jams, there are currently several construction projects underway that have made the traffic crisis even more horrible than usual & # 39 ;, he continued.

& # 39; In all honesty, these projects will eventually ease traffic, so we have high expectations of becoming LAX in the future. But right now, it's miserable. & # 39;

Other airport awards were awarded to Singapore & # 39; s Changi Airport (best international airport), London Heathrow Airport (best for shopping), Newark Liberty International Airport in New Jersey (best for gourmets) and Jackson Hole Airport in Wyoming (best small airport) ).

America's number two for the best airport was given to Austin-Bergstrom International Airport (AUS), generally credited for its quirky character and preference for local restaurants within its walls, rather than chains.

Fodor also outlined a large number of other prize winners, including Delta, who were named the best airline and Jet Blue, cited for their exemplary service to large-sized passengers.

The valued list, based on the opinions of Fodor & # 39; s 70 renowned editors and writers, will be an annual program from this year.

Tarr said that Fodor launched the awards for & # 39; effort to give a fresh, more inclusive and useful twist to traditional travel awards, most of which are surprisingly stiff and boring in a statement to DailyMail.com .

& # 39; Regarding our airport choices, as very frequent travelers, our editors and writers constantly pass through the airports of the world. We see first-hand the good, bad, ugly and simple confusion, & Tarr said.

& # 39; The best airports are not necessarily the newest or the most high-tech. And since airports are constantly evolving and expanding, their character can change quickly. We wanted to share our observations about the current and the worst in its class in terms of airports. We will share these recommendations every year in the future. & # 39;
