No. 9 Denver (DEN)

21 of 24

Check-in and security process? Denver came in fifth. Wi-Fi? A solid fourth place. How about baggage handling? It showed up at eighth, not bad for such a massive airport. As for terminal cleanliness, this bright airport with windows that take in the Rockies ranked fourth overall. So what dragged it down? Its location, with a solid last place showing. DEN is about 25 miles from the city center, prompting some wags to say it’s closer to Kansas than the city it allegedly serves.
