Here's something to keep in mind the next time you're picking which Bay Area airport to fly in and out of.

Researchers at MIT looked at which major U.S. airports are most likely to spread a pandemic. New York's JFK was number one, but San Francisco International Airport ranked fourth behind LAX and Honolulu International.

Researchers factored in travel patterns and passenger wait times to predict how fast a disease might spread.

Neither San Jose or Oakland was in the top ten.
