Frommers ranked NAIA Terminal 1 as world's 2nd worst airport

Its find it a little weird that an airport can be included in the list of the best and worst airport. I hope they start the NAIA-1 P1.16B facelift to solve the terminal's problem and hopefully enough to be removed in the worst list.

The Best
1. Jeddah (Saudi Arabia) Hajj Terminal
2. Leifur Eriksson Air Terminal, Keflavik, Iceland
3. Seoul (South Korea) Incheon Airport
4. Wellington (New Zealand) "Rock" Terminal
5. New York JFK Airport Terminal 5
6. Singapore Changi International Airport Terminal 3
7. Marrakech (Morocco) Menara Airport Terminal 1
8. Madrid (Spain) Barajas Terminal 4
9. Carrasco International Airport, Montevideo, Uruguay
10. Bilbao (Spain) Airport Main Terminal

The Worst
1. New York JFK Airport Terminal 3
2. Manila (Philippines) Airport Terminal 1
3. Moscow Sheremetyevo Airport Terminal B/C
4. Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (Nairobi, Kenya)
5. Paris' Charles de Gaulle Airport, Terminal 3
6. Amman (Jordan) Queen Alia Airport
7. New York LaGuardia Airport Terminal 5
8. Terminal B at Newark Liberty International Airport
9. Paris' Beauvais Airport
10. Chicago Midway Airport

If the NAIA-1 P1.16B facelift push trough, I think they should consider the “pro-bono proposal” video that designers Kenneth Cobonpue and Budji Layug with Architect Royal Pineda shared through Cobonpue’s Facebook page.

Here's the copy of the proposed design for the new NAIA Terminal Renovation
