Seattle-Tacoma International Airport was a mid-pack finisher in a new survey released this week by Travel and Leisure magazine.

That survey of frequent fliers ranked Sea-Tac ninth for food and beverages and 14th for entertainment.

At the top of the list were Houston’s Bush Intercontinental Airport and Orlando International Airport.

New York’s three airport, JFK, LaGuardia and Newar Liberty earned that city the basement ranking in the survey. Ranking just above the Big Apple was Los Angeles and then St. Louis which lost much of its traffic when American Airlines downgraded it from a hub to an emphasis city.

Minneapolis-St. Paul was third on the good list, while Boston was just one notch above St. Louis on the low end.
