Almost two quarters of overseas travelers say they would suggest avoiding a trip to the United States. One in seven travelers say they missed a connecting flight and have had to cancel hotel reservations, car rentals and other planned activities.
Why? Airport wait times, reports the U.S. Travel Association. $416 million goes unspent in the U.S. economy for every 55 minutes travelers are left waiting in lines. The U.S. Travel notes, “new resources are critical to improving the ability of Customs and Border Patrol officers to process passengers more efficiently while meeting every security need.”
Here are five airports that will have you waiting so long at their peak time, you might as well stream a movie or two on your smartphone while you stand in line.
