No. 3. Newark (EWR)

4 of 16

In early 2012, eight TSA screeners at Newark Liberty International Airport were fired for sleeping on the job and other work-related violations. And in October, improper screening of baggage spurred the TSA to announce plans to fire 25 employees and suspend another 19. The airport has also been plagued by security lapses—allowing unscreened or uncleared passengers onto the airside—that have led to terminal closures and severe flight delays.
