On SkyTrax, an airline and airport review site, Dulles passengers ranked the airport a 3.9 out of a possible 10 points. The low rank was attributed to the probability that connecting flights require travelers switch to another terminal and to go through security again.
BWI faired better. Passengers gave the airport seven out of 10 points in part reflecting the limited dining options.
