U.S. News publishes an airport misery chart, ranking regional 53 airports on a combination of late flights and load factor, or crowding. Little Rock National is sixth-best in the country by this count. First: Jackson, Miss. Last: Grand Rapids, Mich.
UPDATE: Also good news on the misery factor: The airport has announced that the random vehicle inspections begun after the spate of arrests in England, will be discontinued at 10 p.m. tonight.
