Sea-Tac Airport ranks in top 10 of world's best airports

Skytrax World Airport Awards were announced in Barcelona, Spain - and Sea-Tac ranked in the top 10 of four categories:

  • #3 for Best Airport Staff in the World

  • #4 for Best Regional Airports in North America

  • #8 for Best Airports in North America

  • #10 for World's Best Airports Serving 30-40 Million passengers

The World Airport Awards are voted for by customers in an annual world-wide customer satisfaction survey. This year more than 12.85 million customers completed the survey and ranked 410 airports.

One change from last year? Sea-Tac was #1 in Best Airport Staff in the world. This year it's #3. Have you seen a change in your airport experience?

We're thinking with the extended hours of musical entertainment, and the expanded cellphone waiting lot, the whole airport process is just going to keep getting better and better.

Next maybe they'll do something about getting more legroom on actual planes? Please?
