Dubai Airport Makes Top Ten in the World

Dubai Airport
Reported by Forbes.Com Dubai, according to Skytrax, is listed as #6 out of ten.

The summary statement says:

Rated the best airport in the Middle East by Skytrax respondents, Dubai Airport is used by most passengers as a connection point rather than as an end destination. Some say the ongoing construction creates long walking distances and that "ever-present escalators" can slow down passengers. Still, Dubai Airport is known for its "award-winning" duty-free shopping and "glitzy layout that portrays an air of luxury and opulence."
