Deal: The super-low fares on this deal feature East Coast destinations: Boston to Baltimore ($49) and Nassau, Bahamas to Orlando ($44). From Los Angeles, one-way sale fares for 50 destinations are in the $104-to-$179 range, including $104 for Washington, New York and Boston; $166 for San Juan, Puerto Rico; and $124 for Atlanta.

Tested: I tried various date combinations from Los Angeles to New York but couldn’t always get the $104 rate both ways. For example, leaving Wednesday, June 2, the lowest fare I could find was $129, though I could get the $104 rate to return on Saturday, June 5. As I tested various dates between L.A. and New York, the $129 rate showed wider availability than the rock-bottom $104, but that may be because seats are going fast.

The Ugliest Airports Around the Globe

Airports in the movies are always portrayed as squeaky clean places with fancy walkalators and big, panoramic windows. Or, if the movie is about a small island in the middle of nowhere, the airport can look like a scene from a war movie. They look pretty much like the airports were previewing here.

If youre ever passing through these airports, dont bother getting your camera out of the bag. The views not really something youd want to remember.

The Ugliest Airports Around the Globe

John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York

Surprisingly enough, the first airport to make this list is the JFK International Airport in New York. Once upon a time, the airport was a pretty sight, but that was when JKF was still young, and the airport was still called Idlewind. It showcased the best assembly of modern architecture and made New York proud to be New York. Fifty years later, though, we have what modest tourists would describe as hell.

Upon arrival, passengers are greeted by endless corridors and hallways with blank walls. MOMA curator Paola Antonelli even described the place as dysfunctional. When you reach the Delta terminals, youll see an unwelcoming sight of dilapidation and filth. And if youre not a frequent flyer to and from New York, youre bound to get yourself lost here, too.

The Ugliest Airports Around the Globe

Charles de Gaulle in Paris

Because its Paris, and innovative art (even in architecture) is celebrated, the long, column-less structure of Charles de Gaulle Airport was once deemed “graceful” . Of course, that was until 2004, when a portion of the airport collapsed and killed four people. While tragic, the news was pretty unsurprising. People who didnt live in Paris saw the structure as a fiendish symbol of the technocratic country.
Translation: nothing here will work and nobody cares if they dont. Aside from the less-than-friendly architecture, science fiction writer Bruce Sterling also reported bad experiences with the airports signage. British designer John Thackara, who actually lives in South France, also shared his two-cents about the airport. According to the British guru, everyone who works in the airport had been turned into sociopaths.

This is probably largely because of the environment theyre in. For some reason, the staff cannot see how dreadful they treat their passengers.

The Ugliest Airports Around the Globe

Sheremetyevo International Airport in Moscow

What word event inspired more bad architecture for years to come? Answer: the 1980 Summer Olympics which was held in Moscow. That same, fateful year, Moscows Sheremetyevo Terminal 2 was also completed. According to New York-based and Moscow-born architect Constantin Boym, the airport is built under a 70s “heroic” style on an oddly hexagonal grid.

If youre inside the building, youll have a hellish time finding your way because the walls are all 60º adjacent to one another. According to reports, the airport underwent renovation two years ago, and the dusty ceiling of the entire grid was substituted with a smoother one. For some reason, this facelift only made the place look uglier.

The Ugliest Airports Around the Globe

Heathrow Airport in London

How can we possibly describe Heathrow International Airport? The average traveler would say that the airport makes the JKF landing pad in New York look good. Miami Art Museum Terry Riley gets more specific, though. He describes the airport as four shopping centers accidentally smashed together. Probably the worst portion of the airport is Terminal 3.

This one was built in 1961 and has been described, since then, as a strange low ceilinged area where passengers are held like hostages until the time of their planes departure. A Malaysian architecture, Azmi Merican, gets creative and socio-critical, saying that the airport is a reflection of “lost empire” which no longer knows what role it plays in the world.

The only upside is that Terminal 5, which took 20 years to construct, finally opened in 2008. This was certainly an improvement. The baggage system of the airport is also working just fine, now.
