Best and worst countries and airports.

Here is a short analysis from Earthrounders' reports on the 'best and worst countries' and 'best and worst airports' from the Confirmation Forms as submitted by Earthrounders.

These figures, like a lot of statistics, have to be taken with 'a grain of salt'...an example as the greatest number of Earthrounders come from the US, it is normal that they indicate the US as the 'best and easiest' country to fly in.

The statistics still give an idea of 'best and worst' countries and airports. Here are the number of times countries and airports have been reported by the last 50 RTW flights.

Best and easiest countries:
USA:15
Canada: 8
Australia: 8
Europe: 4

Worst and most difficult countries:
India and neighbouring countries:15
Russia: 12
Middle East and Arab conntries: 5

Best and easiest airports:
Dubai (OMDW): 6

Most difficult airports:
Magadan (UHMM): 6
Ahmedabad (VAAH): 4
