There has been a lot of not-so-positive discussion lately about the state of America’s airports — but not all of them are a total mess, according to the travel website

These are America’s best and worst airports

A new study measured the 30 busiest U.S. airports on factors like timeliness, accessibility and amenities.

The top spot went to Phoenix Sky Harbor International, which scored high due to its low rate of flight delays and cancelations, convenient public transportation and food options.

On the other hand, all three of the major New York City airports ranked at the bottom of the list.

According to the analysis, La Guardia suffers from a high rate of delays and cancelations, JFK has long security wait times and Newark Liberty is sub-par across the board.
