It’s such a great airport to navigate so it might come as a surprise that Tampa is one of the angriest airports in the US. This ranking is based on Tweets. The percentage of angry tweets from Tampa International Airport was the 4th highest of any other airport in the nation. The data was collected by Forbes Advisor. First, they selected 60 of the busiest airports in the country. During a twelve month period, beginning in March 2022, they kept track of negative tweets, more than 37,000 of them.
I don’t know about your experiences in Tampa’s airport, but mine have always been good. It is easy to get around and there is ample parking. I even found customs and immigration to be easy. However, it has been awhile since I’ve passed through. Most of the flights I book originate and end at Southwest Florida International Airport in Fort Myers if I can help it. So I can’t really judge on Tampa being one of the angriest airports
More angriest airports in the US
Tampa is not the only Florida airport on the angry list. In fact, Jacksonville International Airport came in at number two. Finally, the angriest airport in the United States, according to the amount of disgruntled tweets from there, is John Wayne Airport in Orange County, California. It’s outside of of Los Angeles. I’ve flown into there numerous times to avoid the LA traffic and found it to be a great airport. So much easier to navigate than LAX. But, it only takes one bad experience, one bad day for tired and frustrated passengers to take to social media and vent. We’ve all probably felt that way once or twice.
