Biden calls LaGuardia airport a 'third world country,' but it could be worse

(CNN) – In a speech on infrastructure, Vice President Joe Biden called Hong Kong's airport "modern" and American, but was less kind to a popular domestic airport.

"If I took you, and blindfolded you, and took you to the LaGuardia airport in New York, you must think, 'I must be in some third world country,'" Biden said.

But LaGuardia isn't really that bad. CNN's Tom Foreman takes us around the world and finds that it could be much worse.
