    I was under the impression that from sleeper's perspective (a.k.a backpackers/Lonely Planeters) nearly all US airports are a problem as they close/shutdown for few hours, in the wee hours.

    Indeed. The rankings lose credibility because some of the "best" airports listed actually shut overnight and forcibly remove anyone who might be trying to sleep. (Eg WLG #4 in south pacific.)

    Similarly AKL (#1 in south pacific) removed almost all the comfortable sleeping areas that were landside.
