Logan International Airport Reviews
Since we are taking you to the international airport in Eastern Boston, let us share some few facts about “Boston” first. The name of the city itself was not originally from Americans yet from a town in England which was Boston too. The early settlers in the capital city of Massachusetts decided to keep the name. In US, Boston had the first subway known as “Tremont Street Subway” in 1897. Who wouldn’t know the state’s official dessert “Boston Cream Pie” misses half of their American lives.
Their international airport is called as “Logan International Airport” and was actually named after General Edward Lawrence Logan, who made a significant role in Massachusetts. To see a biography about him, click here.
Now, after learning some facts and origins of BOS (Logan International Airport), let us dig in further to the airport’s reviews, facilities, services, news and contact information.
Logan International Airport Reviews of Passengers
Reviews from Skytrax and Yelp are almost similar in total results, that the airport had garnered a below average score estimating around 4/10. Feedback are generally focused on BOS’s unhelpful facilities which lead to multiple casualties.
One traveler was even disappointed (after her two 10-hour flights from Thailand) when she needed to use the airport’s bathroom, to her surprise, there was only a single bathroom located at the other end of the hall. What made it worse was the lack of drinking water availability until making it through customs which kept her forever there. Through this she gave BOS a 2/10 score on February 24, 2016.
The airport has 5 airport lounges as Air France Graf Lounge, American Airlines Admiral’s Club, American Airlines Admiral’s Club, Delta Sky Club, United Club and USO Club.
