DFW Airport Doesn't Fly with Salon

Having just flown through Chicago O'Hare International earlier this week, where the security lines were a few thou deep and the food tasted like foot and the vibe was generally Third World, I could not agree more with Salon's assessment today that the joint's among of the world's worst airports. But how did Dallas-Fort Worth International wind up on the wrong side of the yay-nay tally? To wit:

Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW)

"Who came up with that absolutely crack-brained triple-horseshoe design -- with a tram that only goes in one direction? American Airlines' annoyingly named SkytrAAin whizzes people to their gate at speeds of up to 6 miles per hour, using a modified electric bobsled that would have looked dated at the 1964 World's Fair."

Maybe I'm just a homer, but I always thought DFW was one of yer better airport pitstops. It's not Love Field, but, still. And, like, it was only two weeks ago that DFW ranked No. 1 in overall customer satisfaction in J.D. Power and Associates' survey. --Robert Wilonsky
