Perth Airport third in ACCC report

Perth Airport has maintained its third place ranking in the competition watchdog's annual airport monitoring report, which found the performance of Sydney's Kingsford Smith airport to be of most concern.

I find it incredible Perth airport could be anything more than the worst airport in Australia. Obviously 3rd is related to most uncompetitive service? Sydney is a breeze compared to Perth. WA with all its prosperity is upgrading its airport to a standard required 5 years ago and that may be ready next year. Come on, what ever happened to state pride?

This is a glass half full OR empty issue. What the story actually meant to say was, Perth ranked in the bottom half of surveyed airports ...again. Privatising these things was one of the worst examples of stupid government decisions in the 90's and 00's, all based on unloading under performing assets instead of improving service delivery. You can hardly blame the operators for wanting to make a profit, now that the shifted stakeholder priorities mean shareholder return is paramount and customer satisfaction is ranked a distant last.

I'm with Trevor on this. Perth would compare unfavourably with many Asian and African airports, let along Australian ones. I dread returning to Perth from the Eastern States, with the 40 minute wait at the baggage carousel, followed by the 20 minute queue for a taxi. Food and drink prices are ludicrous compared to anywhere else in Perth, and the food is crap. At least the overpriced food in Sydney airport is edible. Maybe the report should have ranked Perth as 'third world' rather than 'third'?
