Travel and Leisure Magazine, believes that New York JFK, Washington Dulles, Atlanta and El Paso are among the 12 ugliest airports in the world. We’re shocked that no Indian or Chinese locations made it to their list which does include European, Indonesian and other distance airstrips. Clearly the editors have not traveled to Lucknow (LKO) or Chennai in India (MAA) or had their eyes closed when they went through.
See this link for MAA . When I last went through, it was undergoing major reconstruction. LKO does not have photos that I can find. (taking airport photos in India is often restricted). Now I love both cities and find their airports very convenient in my travels so this is not a reflection of my opinions of these airports overall. But they are uglier than JFK or Dulles for any reasonable human being.
