I have no idea about refunds or whatever, but I'm happy to join you in your hating of airports. They freak me the hell out - them and service stations. I mean, wtf?! They're just places made up to plug the gap between real places. They don't count. It's horrible. *shudder*

Not likely, they know that people have to fly and that they have us over the barrel so no need for concern on the part of the airlines....

I am sitting in an airport at the moment and every 15 seconds a recorded voice repeats "Caution- The moving walkway is ending."  This is right next to my gate where I am forced to wait.  If they are going to keep this voice on repeat they should also have a large plasma TV showing a loop of whatever moronic accident occured to neccesitate this obnoxious shit to begin with...

That would be fucking awesome. Just reels of people tripping and falling at the end of the moving walkways. I might go to the airport just to sit and watch.

if this screen was placed anywhere near the walkway, i would trip while watching it.. therefore defeating it's purpose, but hopefully i would wind up on the next episode...

Dear Sister flew in today...

Her flight arrived early, but the previous plane was still at the terminal, so she actually arrived
inside right on time.

Someone left his/her SUV parked in the loading/unloading zone, and the tow truck was there, along
with a fire engine (in case the gas-guzzler exploded, I guess), but traffic flowed freely around these
obstructions.

All in all, not such a bad experience.

Is it bad that what she said made perfect sense to me?

I LOVE airports. And I LOVE airplane food, except I'm scared of airplanes. They're supposed to be the safest way of travel, but in the wise words of my brother it's only safe because they have tons of planes flying around the world and the ones that crash...well some are never detected. So no one can really put that in statistics.

I hate BRITISH airports. Constantly striking, and the public NEVER get their money back.
But I love foreign airports.
Mpumalanga in the kruger national park has an airport which is a clay hut with a thatched roof. Dubrovnik airport looks... well, impressively soviet.
And i love airplane food. I stayed awake once on an overnight plane and the gay male FA kept bringing me chocolate ice cream.
However, I'm flying to Bangkok with emirates next week, which means a 3 hour stopover in Dubai. Which I've heard is hell- broken aircon, huge lack of seats and awful signage- I'll probably miss my connection!

I've never been to an airport.

I think that also implies that I've never flown, but just to be clear, I've also never been on a plane.

The novelty of that would wear off too. Maybe a live demonstration... like the thing the flight attendants do on the plane.
