1 Travel Tip Tuesday: Airport Comfort

Choosing airports used to be as easy as avoiding O'Hare in the winter or Atlanta during hurricane season. But with flight delays and overbooking becoming more common, and now this Icelandic volcano wreaking havoc, I plan to add airport stats to the research mix in our travel planning. Just look how lucky the folks stranded at Amsterdam's Schiphol Airport are.

But even if lava isn't spewing and your airport isn't laying out the red carpet (or beds and sleeping kits, as the case may be) there are still good and bad everyday options. SleepingInAirports.com offers a comprehensive guide to the world's airports and thousands of user reviews to help rate the best for safe and comfortable sleeping. On their top ten worst list is Frankfurt Hahn--which we can personally attest from the many painful hours we spent there IS a miserable airport at which to be stranded. There are about ten seats in the entire airport and I swear the floor is especially cold and hard. The #1 worst according to them is Paris's Charles de Gaulle. Reviewer Megaplayer writes "The SAS-people at CDG told us 'You are lucky, you can leave. We have to work here every day.'" Ouch.
