Every year, the Airports Council International -- a trade org representing most of the airports in the world -- asks terminal travelers how they really feel about their skymalls. And every year, the ACI manages to keep those reports secret. Except this year: The Times of London has hidden behind its paywall the latest report revealing where the world's top 146 airports rank according to passenger preference. And while we don't know (yet) where Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport comes in on the list, we know how the city-owned Love Field fares: Per FOX News's recap, it comes in at No. 94, well below Mississippi's Jackson Municipal Airport, which, at No. 8, is the only U.S. airport to crack the Top 10. Yeah, but just wait till it's Distinctively Dallas.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
