“Our airports are like from a third-world country,” then candidate Donald Trump said during his first presidential debate. And while things aren’t necessarily that bad, chances are good you might experience a few delays while leaving Logan International Airport for your summer getaway.

Boston’s airport was ranked the fifth-worst in the country for summer travel, according to a new report by MileCards, a travel rewards credit card comparison site. Newark Liberty International Airport ranked worst overall, followed by LaGuardia Airport, San Francisco International Airport, and JFK International Airport.

To compile their ranking, MileCards analyzed federal Department of Transportation airport on-time arrival data for the last 10 summers. Roughly 72 percent of summer arrivals at Logan were on-time between 2007 and 2016. The report also found that 40 percent of the country’s top 50 airports, including Logan, experience more delays in the summer than the winter.

Unaccounted for in the report, however, is Logan’s star power. After all, where else will you see a bewildered Ric Flair or Jerry Remy waiting for someone to pick him up?
