    Four British airports are among the worst 10 in the world.

    Where are Heathrow, Gatwick and Stansted in world's worst airport rankings?
    Asian, Scandinavian and German airports make up the top five in the rankings - as Kuwait takes the bottom spot.

    Four British airports are among the worst 10 in the world, according to new rankings measuring punctuality, quality and service.

    Gatwick, Stansted and Manchester were in the bottom five, while Edinburgh was the sixth worst-rated by AirHelp.

    Worst 10 airports by ranking

    :: Kuwait 5.02
    :: London Gatwick 5.38
    :: Manchester 5.43
    :: Newark Liberty, New Jersey, USA 5.92
    :: Stansted 6.07
    :: Edinburgh 6.10
    :: Mumbai, India 6.21
    :: Dubai, UAE 6.24
    :: Bangkok Suvarnabhumi, Thailand 6.30
    :: Delhi, India 6.31

    See the rest of the rankings from SkyNews HERE




    Many of us just take for granted the services we receive when travelling through airports across the world, but now, and here, we can actually see where the best and the worst airports actually are.

    I know that for many of us these ratings are moot as we will never actually use all of them, but for business-users, and for the better off holiday flyers we may very well come across the services on offer, or not.

    I haven't used all of those airports, but I am not one bit surprised that the British airports rank so low.

    Typical of Britain if you ask me.

    That's disgusting.

    Mind you I am not surprised at all at that result of the survey.

    Britain simply cannot compete with services in other parts of the world.

    I think you will find this is sponsored by heathrow which curiously avoids the top ten

    Well spotted Gandhi.

    It does say that Heathrow was caught between San Fracisco and Vancouver, at twenty on the list.

    That is not a great accolade for any airport.

    This review was found in the Heathrow sub-site of Sky News, but it did not say who did the survey.
