New York's JFK most likely airport to spread a disease

If you're traveling by plane this summer, you might get a souvenir that you don't want.

That's according to researchers from MIT. They took a look at the U.S.’s 40 largest airports to figure out which ones are most likely to spread a disease in the event of an outbreak, in their cities.

New York's JFK airport tops the list, followed by Los Angeles International Airport. The third airport on the list may as bit of a surprise. It’s Honolulu International.

Researchers say it's because of its well-connected hubs.

Right next door, Chicago O'Hare made No. 6 on the list.
