It's no secret that our local airports are decrepit, crowded hellscapes that are both impossible to get to and to get out of, but it appears we pay dearly for the privilege—a new report ranking the most and least expensive U.S. airports placed JFK, LaGuardia and Newark all in the top ten.

According to, Newark is the most expensive airport in the country, boasting both the highest ticket prices and the priciest food, plus there's no free WiFi. Meanwhile, JFK earned a spot as the second most expensive airport in the country, in part because it costs $5 to take an AirTrain but also because, as I recently discovered, a glass of wine there costs $13 and a Cibo Express sandwich is $9.

LaGuardia is slightly less pricey, but not by much— sticks that special place on the list at number 10, both because of high ticket and food prices but also because it costs $59-per-day to park at the airport. Other pricey airports include George Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston, Los Angeles International Airport and Minneapolis-Saint Paul International Airport, the latter of which at least both serves better pizza than the New York airports do and also has a tribute to Charlie Brown and the Peanuts gang, so.
