What a great site.

"For travellers who are REALLY on a budget and looking for a way to skim a few bucks off their travel expenses, why not consider sleeping in an airport?"

3,023 listings and growing daily.

"Many airports are actually than local lodging. And to top it off — IT'S FREE!"

Make sure to check out their Best and Worst List.

The world's best airport for sleeping: Singapore's Changi Airport.

When the website's creator, Donna McSherry, contacted Singaporean airport officials to inform them of their award, the normally gracious group said, "No comment."

Sore winners, what?

The world's worst airport for sleeping? A tie.

One of the awardees was Port Moresby Airport in Papua, New Guinea, where one of the website's contributors witnessed seven people being killed in a gang shoot-out.

Jeez, that seems even more dangerous than Charlottesville-Albemarle Airport.

The other loser: "The entire country of India. Unacceptable seating, foul odors, filth, fleas, safety, and general hassles have resulted in India's 8-year reign as "Worst Airport."

I can say that I passed through New Delhi Airport once upon a time and it was truly a nightmare: terrible seating, noisy, hot, and millions of birds flying through the airport nonstop. I am not joking. Bird poop everywhere. Wear a hat.
