World's best airports: None in U.S. on list

PHL has won awards over the years for some of its amenities, including good retail and food-and-beverage offerings. But PHL shares a dubious distinction with other U.S. airports: It never makes the list when travelers are surveyed about the world's best airports. The winners of this year's SkyTrax poll of the 10 favorites are all in Asia, Europe or New Zealand. One travel columnist who recently flew through Incheon airport in Seoul, Korea, wrote about why it came in first in the poll.
